Pour Master Pro

As a result of building something for Red Bull’s Creation contest a team consisting of Jeff Waeglin, Chris Horne, Justin Griggs and Greg Needel (me) Built the “Pour Master Pro.” The intention of this robot is to pour a perfect beer in any size glass automatically.

How To Determine ABV

Jeremy Smith's insight:

Brief and interesting article. Alone it is useless towards my project. However, in conjunction with the tables regarding density of beer, I should be able to back-calculate from a given ABV to find density of the beer I choose to write about.

Density of Beer

Jeremy Smith's insight:

This is really just a handy table containing relationships of characteristics of beer to density. Should prove useful for considering gravitational potential energy of a given beer and it's conservation of energy as it accelerates downwards through the bottle and eventually fills the mug.

Two Phase Pipe Flow

Jeremy Smith's insight:

Hernandez-Perez, V., M. Abdulkadir, and B. J. Azzopardi. Grid Generation Issues in the CFD Modelling of Two-Phase Flow in a Pipe. Diss. University of Nottingham, 2010. N.p.: n.p., n.d. Print. Very intensive review of fluid dynamics in pipes. Likely more than I require for this project, however extensive use of derivatives and integral formulas for fluid dynamics may come in handy.

E3_-_Final.pdf

Jeremy Smith's insight:

Good source for "perfect beer pour" dealing largely with pressure. Discusses pressure differentials and chemistry of opening a pressurized lid as well as pressures of pouring beer.

Looks like a great article. Where's it from?

Jeremy Smith's insight:

I have the Ninth Edition of this book, but I will be using it for research on Carbonation and how it affects fluid flow.

Randy Wong's curator insight,

This is the chemistry book I'm using to mostly have an basis for quantum mechanical ideas.

How To Pour The Perfect Beer - Craft Beer Academy

Pouring the perfect beer is definitely an art. Pouring beer correctly is more than just controlling how much head forms, it is part of the overall beer tasting experience.
Jeremy Smith's insight:

Brief non-academic discussion on proposed angles v. time to pour a "perfect head of beer". Though not academic, I can use these angles in rotational kinematics discussion when considering an upright beer raised and then rotated 135 degrees (per article suggestion) to initiate pouring. This will also prove useful for considering height measurements in Energy Conservation discussions.

3D CFD simulation of bottle emptying processes

Jeremy Smith's insight:

This is a piece of software avaliable from the UW-Madison - MATC Library exchange. I do not have my hands on this currently, but it will undoubtedly prove enormously beneficial in my research.

Abstract: A 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) approach is used to investigate the effect of parameters such as bottle geometry,surface tension, or inclination on bottle emptying processes. The method can e.g. be used to assess changes of bottle emptying times induced by new bottle shapes, and it is shown to be much more accurate than existing empirical models. While expensive commercial CFDsoftware has substantially restricted and hindered the use of this method in the past, our approach is based on freely available open source CFD software and hence accessible to everyone.

Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach

Randall D. Knight

Jeremy Smith's insight:

Will be used extensively on myriad topics for action of pouring a beer. More than likely this will be the most used of all sources cited as it pertains to every topic discussed.
