Masters: Aug 2015 – May 2017

Body and chassis: Worked on chassis tuning of a commercial vehicle, which has a rear suspension with dual stage leaf spring assembly and a front suspension with double wishbone torsion bar to balance the handling and ride performance of the vehicle.

Computational fluid dynamics: Designing a car body in ANSYS and performed aerodynamic analysis to study lift and drag forces acting on the car body with and without a spoiler. Mechanical vibration: Computed the equivalent mass moments of inertia of all rotors with respect to one rotor of propeller shaft which is connected to engine by using two degree of freedom model and plotted mode shapes using mat lab.
