ACADEMIC PROJECTS

Research on Additive Remanufacturing of Tools and Dies Jan 2018 – May 2018

• The research was focused on remanufacturing Tools and Dies using Powder Bed Fusion, Laser Metal Deposition, Electron Beam Melding (EBM) on materials AISI 4340, Satellite 6, H13, and Inconel 625

• CAD models were created to extract the Prominent Cross Section (PCS) of the damaged part which was to be repaired

• The repaired part was verified using NDE methods - Dye-penetrant, radiography/CT scans, and X-Ray diffraction

Research on Inconel 625 & Rene 80 Material Using Directed Laser Deposition Jan 2018 – May 2018

• Deposited gradient sample of two superalloys, Inconel 625 and Rene 80 using Directed Laser Deposition

• Conducted Hot Mounting, Grinding, Polishing, Heat treatment, Hardness, Tensile strength test.

• Analyzed results and studied the microstructure of re-deposited case for porosity, lack of fusion using optical microscopy, Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD)

Manufacturing Processing Techniques Sep 2017 – Dec 2017

• Developed 2D CAD model of the flip-chip package using Solidworks

• Conducted Fatigue analysis using Abaqus, predicting the life of solder balls in completely filled clean & non- clean flip-chip packages, the fatigue life of a completely clean model is higher than that of an incomplete non- clean model

• Piston file was imported and meshed using Hypermesh

• Performed Fatigue, Thermal analysis on the piston using Abaqus

• Calculated the fatigue life on the piston when the temperature was continuously applied
