  • Icord'17 (India 2017) : "Disassembly for Redesign"
    The paper focuses on technologies for purifying unsafe water. Based on the analysis of existing purifiers, a new distiller is proposed for a domestic usage. A prototype is described and tested, aiming at the validation of the concept.Then, a dysfunctional analysis highlights recommendations for its improvements. A second version is proposed to fix the failures by taking into account frugal considerations for developing countries. A discussion is finally engaged to define the advantages and the limits of the second prototype, in terms of technical performances and based on frugal considerations.
