Abstract
A BROAD SELECTION OF STANDARD AND CUSTOM CLAMPING DEVICES HAVE BEEN DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED TO SOLVE THE NEEDS OF THE AIRCRAFT, APPLICANCE, AUTOMOTIVE, FARM IMPLEMENT, AND MARINE INDUSTRIES. ALTHOUGH EXISTING HOSE CLAMPS INCORPORATE MANY DESIRABLE FEATURES CONSISTENT WITH COOLING SYSTEM APPLICATIONS, NO SINGLE DESIGN CURRENTLY MEETS THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA: UTILITY-FAST REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION WITHOUT TOOLS AND A LOW PROFILE TO MINIMIZE CLEARENCE REQUIREMENTS; MAINTAINABILITY - PROVIDE CONSTANT RADIAL FORCE INDEPENDENT OF TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE, VIBRATION PROOF, INTERFACE SELECTED TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO HOSE, AND CORROSION RESISTANT; AND COST - ECONOMICAL TO PRODUCE IN LARGE NUMBERS AND COST COMPETITIVE WITH EXISTING DESIGNS. THE OVERALL OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT ARE TO DESIGN, ANALYZE, AND TEST SEVERAL HOSE CLAMP CONCEPTS THAT HAVE A HIGH PROBABILITY OF MEETING THE UTILITY, MAINTAINABILITY, AND COST CRITERIA ENUMERATED ABOVE AND FOLLOWING A RIGOROUS EVALUATION PROCESS THAT WILL INCLUDE CONCEPT RANKING, SELECT ONE OR MORE CONCEPTS FOR PRODUCTION.
