Design Optimization of FLYBRID Kinetic Energy Recovery System

Optimized the kinetic energy recovery of a Flybrid KERS system which uses a mechanical flywheel to store energy lost during braking and use it to aid in accelerating the vehicle later

Various subsystems of the Flybrid KERS system were defined, each of which deals with either minimizing losses or maximizing energy storage and the mathematical models for each subsystem were built by selecting the design variables and parameters

Objective function for each subsystem was formulated and constraint equations based on geometry, material and strength were defined

Each subsystem was individually designed in Solidworks, analyzed using Ansys and optimized in MATLAB using SQP and Active Set algorithms and then integrated to achieve an overall system optimum design

A maximum kinetic energy storage value of 0.816 MJ was obtained when using an Aluminum flywheel Design of a multilayered laminated composite fishing rod and optimizing it for high elastic performance and minimum weight

Designed a multilayered composite fishing rod using Creo Elements and analyzed the design using ABAQUS FEA solver

Optimized the ply orientation and stacking sequence of the composite plies using Matlab

Mesh Convergence test was carried out for obtaining the optimum mesh size

Evaluated the structural integrity of the composite structure through ply-by-ply analysis of the composite laminates using Tsai-Hill, Tsai-Wu and Maximum Stress failure theories and performed weight and ply thickness optimization by Design of Experiments

A quasi-isotropic arrangement with a ply orientation of [0/36/72/-72/-36]s, minimum ply thickness of 0.6mm and minimized weight of 1.578kg were the optimum results obtained

Chassis and Undertray Design of the ASU Formula SAE car

Designed an undertray with a diffuser for a Formula SAE car using SolidWorks Modeling software applying GD&T

Modeled the fluid flow for the diffuser and finely meshed it using ICEM CFD and performed flow Analysis using Ansys Fluent to improve the downforce

Performed Torsion and Flexure analysis for the chassis design using ANSYS static structural to determine the torsional and flexural rigidity respectively

Maximized the torsional stiffness and minimized the chassis weight to optimal values by optimizing the thickness of each frame member of the chassis design preventing failure under different loading conditions Design and Analysis of a specially constrained beam

Designed a simply supported beam for load bearing capacity using Catia V5 to the given specific deflection and volume limits when a uniformly distributed load is applied through the center of the beam

Hexahedral mesh elements were used and mesh convergence test was performed using ANSYS to obtain the optimum mesh size.

The breaking point was calculated by considering principle von-misses stress and contour plots were generated using ANSYS Workbench to identify location of failure or maximum stress in each case

A transparent photopolymer resin, VeroClear RGD810 was used to 3D print the beam Work Experience

Technology Intern, FPT USA Corp. Sept 2016 – Dec 2016

Performed Proof of Concept (POC) to validate the feasibility of a car armrest system design project using Creo Elements for our client Continental AG

Assembled a Capability Matrix mapping the CAE functionality of the company and proposed new CAE services to be integrated with the existing capabilities

Prepared Case Studies highlighting the key aspects of the CAE/CAD projects completed by the company for various clients Research Team Lead, Crescent Engineering College Solar Team Dec 2013 – May 2014

Lead a team that designed and investigated the performance of a latent heat thermal storage unit using HS89 as Phase Change Material for heat storage

Performed CFD Flow Analysis for the system using Ansys Fluent by varying the stratification parameters and the results obtained for each case were validated experimentally to choose an efficient design for the Thermal Energy storage system

Manufacturing processes such as sheet metal processing, stamping, injection molding and brazing were used to fabricate different parts of the thermal storage system such as tank, collector plates, PCM capsules etc. Automotive Engineering Intern, Ford India Pvt. Ltd. July 2013

Performed vibration analysis on crankshafts using an accelerometer at various engine speeds and reduced the vibrations through dynamic balancing of the system by adding counterweights thus developing an efficient design

Collaborated with the design team to perform design calculations and structural analysis of the system using Ansys (Static Structural, Modal Analysis, Response Surface Optimization)

In-Plant Training, Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt. Ltd. June 2012 – July 2012

Completed an extensive study report on the various Manufacturing and Assembly operations within the Automobile Plant by performing a Time-Motion study using Arena Simulation software and recommended reallocation of specific resources which increases the productivity of the plant by ~3%
