Abstract [en]

The report "Further development of the event tent Nimbus" written by the student Ludwig Haraldsson describes a product development project in the course Degree project for the Bachelor of Engineering program innovation technology and design, MSGC12, at the Faculty of Health, Natural and Engineering Sciences at Karlstad University in spring 2019. Advisor for the project has been university lecturer Lennart Wihk and examiner for the project has been Professor Leo de Vin.The client for the project was Tentipi AB. Their buisness is focused on tents both for hiking and major events. The event tents are used in different settings such as markets and weddings. The tents take inspiration from the shape and construction of the Sami tent. The project aims to improve the assembly process and the construction of their smallest event tent called Nimbus. The product has problems with the tension of the fabric as the material of the fabric is stiff which can lead to the product not being mountable if one of the parts differs too much in dimensions or the fabric is sewn wrong. This means that the company wants a base construction that fits the fabric better or is adjustable. The assignment came with various requirements, for example regarding production cost and that the fabric would remain the same.Through the product development process several concepts were created. The concepts were presented to Tentipi AB and then carry out a concept selection based on these candidates. A final choice was discussed in the form of a further development of two combined concepts. The concept shares the function with an umbrella in how it spans the fabric. This means that adjustment of the tension of the fabric can occur during as well as after the assembly process. In addition, the concept otherwise follows the company's requirements and preserves its iconic form. A 3D model was created in the computer program Creo to visualize the concept and examine whether mounting is possible. Finally, a downscaled model of various hobby materials was made to prove the functionality of the clamping mechanism. Further work is needed in the form of design drawings and thorough testing on a full-scale prototype.
