Variable Displacement Engine

Analyzed and calculated the fuel economy of a Variable Displacement Engine to determine how the new technologies affect gas mileage. Organized and chaired meetings with the client and the faculty advisor to discuss various prospects and develop a testing system that would meet the goals of the study.

o Contributed ongoing dialogue with the inventor, Dr. Knezek, and faculty advisors to communicate ongoing progress.

o Analyzed various BSFC plotting maps to create a new math model to represent the maps.

o Worked on budgeting, organization, creation of Gantt chart and power point presentation, and detailed project report.

o Used MatLab to perform mathematical simulation at different gear ratios and calculate respective BSFC value.

o Concluded that the Variable Displacement Engine would improve gas mileage in a Honda Accord by about 10-miles-per-gallon.

Gear Box

Designed a gear box based upon given loading conditions and specifications as part of the machine design project

o Calculated gear ratios for required output loading conditions.

o Utilized SolidWorks to create a solid model of the entire assembly.

o Perform stress analysis on the solid model.

Jet Engine Bracket

Utilized Additive Manufacturing techniques in the design of a jet engine bracket adhering to highly specialized specification from General Electric.

o Performed mass optimization using the Inspire optimization tool.

o Used SolidWorks to design a solid model of the engine bracket. The design benefited significantly from the use of additive manufacturing

o Performed stress analysis on the solid model using Ansys and 3D printed the model.
