Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this thesis has been to develop a proposition for a new type of snail barrier, whose function is not based on the use of toxic chemicals or electric current. We have mainly used Fredy Olsson´s methods described in the compendium "Princip- och primärkonstruktion" After a thorough review of previous research and the accompanying definition of criteria, we sketched out six different propositions. By weighting the criteria in a Kesselring matrix, we selected one of the proposals for further development. The main criteria we had to take into account were; the weight of the product, the ability to recycle the material, the price and that it would be modular. The work has resulted in the development of a product that meets all the criteria, and is ready for manufacturing, though field conditions tests that can confirm the effectiveness remains to be done.
