• Conducted simulation on longitudinal acceleration performance of a traction limited vehicle. Applied Vehicle Aerodynamics
• Studied boundary layer separation and achieved drag force of 20.70 lbf on FSAE car in STAR-CCM+ at speed of 60 mph.
• Concluded on the debate whether a pickup truck gets a better gas mileage with the tailgate up or down, moving down the road at 70 mph by running CFD simulations using STAR-CCM+. Computational Methods in Engineering
• Implemented temperature distribution in hollow cylindrical matter, comprised of two different composite materials by computational methods in engineering. GRADUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
Motorsports Research Lab [Advisor: Dr. Peter Tkacik], UNC, Charlotte February ‘18 – August ‘19
• Worked extensively on 1x1, 2x2 steel tubes to make the outer boundary on mezzanine to meet OSHA requirements. Competent in shop related tools like working on a horizontal band saw, iron worker, vertical band saw, grinding, punching and bending.
• Help, design and retrofit to use a Tire Testing machine donated by Michelin with updated data and control systems. Learned MIG and TIG welding with implementation on senior design projects for the department and my thesis program.
• Proficient in reading shop drawings and converting to 3D Models CAD data for use in manufacturing and fabrication. Learning engine rebuilding and inspection techniques and conduct reverse engineering using Faro Arm and Faro Cam2 measure in software.
• Worked on experimental aerodynamic study of flow around a tire on rolling road (belt control system ran by 3 phase frequency drive).
Alan Kulwicki Lab [Advisor: Dr. Charles Jenckes], UNC, Charlotte May ‘19 – May‘20
• Designed and analyzed the monocoque for FSAE 2020 Michigan Competition by running FEA.
• Developed CAD file and ran FEA for jug connecting head and block of KTM 500 exc engine and bored out 0.050 inches in combustion chamber to accommodate more horsepower.
• Made uprights for front and rear wheel assembly with selected SKF bearing on Solidworks to go along the clevis connected to chassis via control arms.
• Drafted and made wheels for 10-inch tire that is going to get milled in house. Designed it to package the uprights, brake calipers, brake rotor.
