Huron Castings Inc. Pigeon, MI. Metallurgist Co-op [Aug ’12 - Nov ‘12]
oCo-ordinated mechanical and metallurgical testing of casting samples and test bars
Configured multiple experiments for testing, including channel set-up, calibration, programming of test sequences, and set-up of measurement instruments for acoustic data collection. Some experiments include:
oDeducing the sound produced by a single source in the presence of background noise and other sources.
oUsing sound intensity measurements to find the location of a sound source within a hidden box.
Applications include finding the source of a sound from behind the Instrument panel of an automobile.
oDeduced the absorption coefficients of materials, by way of finding the T60 reverberation time.
oUsed mathematical formulations to calculate the sound power of a source in reverberant and free field by only measuring sound pressure level.
Conducted Modal Analysis to deduce mode shapes of a beam; and understand the response upon excitation.
oRan simulations in Ansys Workbench to compare results to those from experimental Modal Analysis.
Familiar with Order Analysis and Order tracking for understanding harmonics of rotating machines.
Built a Helmholtz resonator, in an effort to minimize acoustic radiation at any desired frequency.
oApplications include reducing noise in automotive exhaust systems etc.
CAD design and animation of a model glider plane. (PACE Engineering Design Competition)
oCAD modelling and simulation of takeoff and landing done in Unigraphics.
oMain components included fuselage, seat, wings and landing gear.
Designed and simulated an autonomous window cleaner for skyscrapers
oCAD modelled in Unigraphics.
