    The mission of LAMP is to develop lightweight vehicles.

    -  My task was to conduct the test, inspection of failure surface using SEM and characterization and also to model and analyze the lightweight Composite Hood Structures (of Ford Fusion) using ABAQUS and LS-DYNA.

    -  I started to work in Wayne State University and went to AlphaSTAR, California, USA where I learnt the material characterization using MCQ and GENOA (from July 2011 to Aug 2011).

     

    UNIVERSITY PROJECTS                                                                                                                   

    I was involved with cost cutting efforts for different industrial projects at Concordia Center for Composites (CONCOM), Montreal, Canadato solve the technical problems that were reported to CONCOM from the industries:

    Helicopter Tail-boom Like Structure                              Sept 2010 to Dec 2010

    ● The buckling problem of helicopter tail-boom was reported to CONCOM by Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Ltd, ● I was involved for the progressive failure, Fatigue and Damage Tolerance (F&DT) and modal analyses of those structures, ● I was the lead-man of the manufacturing, design and analysis focus group and my duty was to manage, conduct and coordinate day-to-day routine activities for those projects.

    Tapered Curved Composite Structures                      Jan 2007 to August 2010

    ● Tapered curved structures are used in rotor blades, shovels, helicopter tail-boom and gun barrel, ● I developed the design guidelines for this type of structures, ● For this purpose, I analyzed the curved plates using several shell theories based on classical and higher order theories, ● Based on global buckling, ply failure and delamination analyses, I prepared the design guidelines, ● Beside the linear shell theories, non-linear shell theories were also used, ● The ANSYS based results were verified with that of the Hand Calculations, ● My work of this project has been presented in the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Bangalore, India. Several papers have also been published in the peer reviewed international journals.

    Head Mounted Display (HMD)                          Sept2005 to Dec 2006

    ● The existing HMD used in aerospace applications has some problems in terms of weight and cost, ●  I was assigned to modify the present model and to design a new HMD using the lightest materials, ● I designed the different parts of HMD and assembled those parts using CATIA, ● I selected ten candidate materials from 20,000 materials using ASHBY chart and the final materials were selected based on decision making theory, ● The newly modeled HMD was analyzed using finite element method (FEM), ● My works were appreciated by our project manager and the method I applied to select the materials has been published in the journal.

    Tapered Composite Plates                                 Jan 2003 to August 2005

    ● Tapered plates are frequently used in aerospace applications but the present behavior analysis of this type of structures is not sufficient, ● My tasks were to manufacture and to analyze the structural and material failures of tapered composite plates using FEM based on classical, first order and third-order plate theories, ● My works have been published in three international journals and have also been presented in three international conferences.

     

    COMPUTER SKILLS:

    • Code writing in MATLAB, C++, and FORTRAN
    • Experienced in Minitab, AutoCAD and CATIA
