Design of Experiment’s (DOE) approach for Soil preparation. Spring 2015

An experiment was conducted to study the effect caused by the different ratios of soil to food plant (fertilizer), moisture, and time elapses on the overall pH level in the soil.

Factors like Soil to Plant Food Ratio (gm), Time (min) and Moisture (ml) were kept as the Control factors of the experiment whereas Sun, wind, and other outside conditions were considered as Nuisance Factors.

The design of experiments (DOE) was conducted for a Two-level, full factorial design for three factors (23) with a total number of 24 Runs to determine optimal pH levels for best soil conditions for Horticulture.

The analysis of variance (ANOVA) was done to determine significant main factors and interactions that affect the overall pH Level of the soil using the Design-Expert® software. Supply chain Reliability evaluation for an Automobile industry. Spring 2015

A supply chain model for automobile body assembly was considered to evaluate the parameters of Uncertainty and Risk.

The model discusses about a modified idea about risk and uncertainty collaboration. Parameters like risk origin reasons, risk circumstances and risk origin probability were identified and analyzed.

A mathematical evaluation was made using ReliaSoft software to estimate the System Reliability [R (t)] and Mean Time To Failure (MTTF) for the supply chain model.

PFMEA and Fault Tree analysis was made to improve the System Reliability of the supply chain model. Implementation of Six Sigma Methodologies on Wichita State University Bookstore. Fall 2013

Implanted 5s in the University bookstore to facilitate defect free customer service and streamline the process. Experimental investigation on the properties of Hybrid Composites. Fall 2012

An Experimental investigation was made to understand the different behavior properties of hybrid natural fiber composites. The hybridization approach was used to make a cost effective composites.

Samples of several groundnut shell/glass fiber/epoxy hybrids were manufactured using hand layup method where total weight percent of filler was kept at 40%.

Specimens were cut from the fabricated board according to the ASTM standards for different experiments. The mechanical and physical behavior was analyzed.

Apparatus for Fluid flow visualization. Spring 2012

A simple apparatus for fluid flow visualization was designed to analyze the fluid flow phenomenon by using dye injection technique to indicate streamlines and pathlines on different small structures.

Dye was used to mark and visualize particular regions of flow or individual fluid streamlines. To mark streamlines adjacent to a test body, the dye is injected from small ports on the surface of the object.

The effect of streamlining on different structures like Airfoil, Cylinder and Flat board were analyzed. ACTIVITIES AND HONORS
