Relevant Projects (continued)

Senior Design Project –Device for Application and Measurement of Graft Tension ACL Reconstruction Summer 2016

• Designed a system attached to tensile-testing machine to simulate flexion /extension of knee until failure (3000 N)

• Used SolidWorks to create a cylindrical fixture to hold the knee while rotating member in 15 increments accounting for knee abnormalities (bowed legs /knock-knees)

• Created Bill of Materials /ordered the required parts

• Assisted with milling and bead-blasting on the parts

• With supervison placed pig knee in to the device and applied pressure until ligament failed

• To ensure member could withstand applied force, performed stress analysis and force calculations Manual Transmission Lay Shaft

Spring 2016

• Lay shaft to connect engine gear and differential of two-speed transmission

• Using Solid Works, designed bearings, housing and splines of the shaft

• Analyzed all technical aspects while ensuring against static and fatigue failure, including stress concentrations and gear calculations

Spring-Loaded Projectile Launcher

Spring 2016

• Designed a spring-loaded launcher with bolted joint; with (Nerf Gun) model

• Using Solid Works, designed internal/external components

• Analyzed the bolted joint and spring to prevent failure, and determine where design failure would occur Power Stroke Diesel Engine Design

Spring 2016

• Designed theoretical four-stroke diesel engine using specifics of a Ford 6.8L Power Stroke diesel engine

• Chose sensors with appropriate time constants, measurement capabilities, and other design specifications

• Compared the thermodynamic work output of engine and measured work utilizing a dynamometer/position sensor

• Compared relative engine costs by creating a Bill of Materials Computational Fluid Dynamics Project

Spring 2016

• Utilizing ANSYS Software, performed CFD analysis of flow profile

• Analyzed regions of laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow between two shearing parallel plates Achievements

• Achieved Dean’s List for the Spring & Fall 2015 semesters
