FloDesign Wind Turbine Waltham, MA June 2011-April 2012
Mechanical Design/Test Engineer
• Tested and Assessed Test models
o Ran and Evaluated tests at MIT Wind Tunnel and Lockheed Martin Low Speed Wind Tunnel
o Utilized Macros in Excel to create spreadsheets that would make the process of evaluating the tunnel data more efficient
o Tested and validated models in wind tunnel to confirm colleagues CFD results
• Designed Test Equipment
o Conceptualized and Designed a Tilt Tower using Hydraulic equipment for lifting a heavy structure into place in the wind tunnel
o Conducted Design work on wind turbine test models
o Designed and worked with actuating mechanisms
o Utilized GD&T on Mechanical drawings using the CAD Software SolidWorks
o Worked with suppliers to acquire and fabricate parts specified by mechanical drawings
• Worked with Electronic Equipment
o Created Cat5 Cables and quick disconnects for instrumentation
o Evaluated and troubleshot the location of faulty connections and corrected them
o Identified and acquired load sensing equipment for specific applications
• Involved in a design process from conceptualization to assembly and testing
o Assembled fabricated parts received and made adjustments where necessary to ensure a working model
• Conducted Vibration Analysis
o Determined an Inertial Measurement Unit(IMU) capable of recording vibration during testing
o Analyzed data in real time and was able to give instant feedback during testing
o Post-Processed data by using FFT to convert to the frequency domain: Looked for Aliasing, Resonance, and Natural Frequencies
