One Response to Reduced Carbon Engineering by David Austin

    This is an excellent demonstation of redesigning for manufacture ie part count reduction. The single cast part has advantages over the composite step, well defined and illustrated. This also represents an excellent example of CO2 reduction ie less energy used during assembly, in life ( a lot lighter!!) and disposal ie fewer parts to take off, the main part can be melted down to make a new one. Very good research, giving solid evidence for each assumption made. Well done!! Steve
