Garage
A small engine dyno I helped design and that Purdue University built for small engine experimentation. Before this was built, there was only one dyno on the whole campus and it was located in the basement of the ME building, semi-permanently connected to a 4 cyl. Detroit Deisel and a Honda 4-banger.

Just a simple inertia style with enough safety bells and whistles to make OSHA drool. I got to design the sensor suite and data recording system using a multi-functional PLC (Programable Logic Controller) system, as well as the safety systems. I also wanted to put in a CO2 extinguisher plumbed into the intake and shroud for fires, but that was nixed. Oh well.
