WORK EXPERIENCE

Senior Engineer, CAE- NVH/ Dynamics, Bajaj Auto Limited, Pune, India Jul 2014- Dec 2015

- Built finite element models from CAD data using HyperMesh.

- Performed linear static and vibration analysis of the chassis and plastic components of motorcycle using OptiStruct and ANSYS followed by post-processing in HyperView and HyperGraph.

- Obtained critical modal frequencies and harmonic stresses for components and full vehicle models.

- Studied frequency response for acceleration at Human Interference Points (H.I.P) of motorcycle.

- Established co-relation between CAE and physical test for mode shapes and modal frequencies of frame.

- Suggested required modifications in the geometry during Design Reviews.

- Studied pitch, roll and yaw angles during stability tests to correlate data from objective and subjective testing.

- Developed operating procedure for axial, radial and conical stiffness measurement of rubber bush. Intern, Energy Department, Black & Veatch Pvt. Ltd., Pune, India May 2013-Jul 2013

- Designed piping dimensions by calculating head losses due to friction in pipes using Darcy-Weisbach equation.

- Contributed in reducing piping friction losses as well as procurement cost of piping material. RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Stress Constraint Topology Optimization Jan 2016-May 2016 University of Illinois- Urbana Champaign

- Completed MATLAB program for topology optimization to minimize mass with von Mises stress constraint.

- Studied effect of varying load, filter radius and relaxation parameter on final topologies. Energy Efficiency in Industrial Robots Mar 2014- Jun 2014 Ostfalia University of Applied Science, Germany

- Quantified energy consumed by industrial robot during spot welding operation of Volkswagen Golf VII door.

- Performed trajectory planning for minimum energy consumption of robot. Design of Retainer Plate for Wheel Assembly Sep 2011- Sep 2012 COEP SAE SUPRA Racing Team, India

- Designed single lock nut assembly - comprising of retainer plate embedded with springs - to facilitate easier disassembly and assembly of the wheels during pit stops in the endurance race.

- Analyzed the wheel assembly in ANSYS to determine the stresses on retainer plate during cornering.
