SUMMARY

• Master’s student in Aerospace Engineering program at University of Cincinnati seeking entry-level/internship opportunities.

• 3 years of work experience in product design and development through CAD modelling and suggesting design changes, analyzing simulation results

• After working in HyperloopUC, I have comprehensive understanding and experience with cross-functional disciplines. CORE SKILLS

• CFD Analysis: Fluent, Star-CCM+, Fine/Turbo

• FEA analysis: ANSYS; Abaqus

• Design software: Solidworks, Catia V5

• Operating Systems: Windows, UNIX

• Documentation: MS Office, Lyx

EXPERIENCE

CAD Lead HyperloopUC Aug 2015 – Mar 2017

• Led a team of 5 engineers as technical lead for CAD design of hyperloop pod from conceptualization to fabrication.

• Pod design was ranked in top 1% from 1200 teams by SpaceX at Hyperloop competition held at Texas A&M University.

• Created a frame design to sustain loading with a factor of safety of 4 during braking and touchdown phases.

Wheel Assembly

• Designed double wishbone suspension system with tie-rods to resist normal force of 2000N from the wheels.

• Developed 3D CAD models of wheel and its assembly and created 2D drawings for manufacturing with complete adherence to GD&T and ASME Y14.5 standards.

• Modelled a service propulsion system in Solidworks with a maximum speed of 1.5 m/s as a safety mechanism.

Braking System

• Created CAD models of magnetic and friction brake in Solidworks to provide lateral stability and deceleration from 110m/s to 0m/s.

• Engineered brake bracket system to sustain forces due to eddy current braking during levitation for a pod of 200kg.

• Conducted DFMEA of both magnetic and friction system to ensure safety of the pod while in braking phase by interacting with various team members.

Associate Consultant iLensys June 2012 – July 2013

Single-Use Mixer for Bio Processing Products

• Designed cart base for bioreactor unit cutting down the cost of manufacturing compared to previous versions by 20%.

• Proposed and modelled a door in SOLIDWORKS for high capacity mixers to minimize spilling of fluids from the container.

• Created CAD models and detailed 2D drawings of different sub-components and assemblies in the mixer.

• Developed and maintained bill of materials (BOM) and weldment cut-lists for assemblies and structural members.

• Involved in weekly meetings with clients to propose design changes and review modifications made to the model.

ACADEMIC PROJECTS

Multi-stage Centrifugal Compressor, Fall 2014

Improved the stall margin of centrifugal compressor by 18.6% to prevent turbochargers from surging at high boost pressure.

CFD analysis of Single Expansion Ramp Nozzle (SERN), Spring 2014 Conducted CFD analysis using Star-CCM+ on the flow over a rectangular plate of aspect ratio 6 at nozzle exit and evaluated pressure distribution on the surface of plate.
