Twice as big as Earth, the super-Earth 55 Cancri e was thought to have lava flows on its surface. The planet is so close to its star, the same side of the planet always faces the star, such that the planet has permanent day and night sides. Based on a 2016 study using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists speculated that lava would flow freely in lakes on the starlit side and become hardened on the face of perpetual darkness. The lava on the dayside would reflect radiation from th...

Landing on Mars is difficult and not always successful. Well-designed advance testing helps. An ambitious NASA Mars rover mission set to launch in 2020 will rely on a special parachute to slow the spacecraft down as it enters the Martian atmosphere at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second). Preparations for this mission have provided, for the first time, dramatic video of the parachute opening at supersonic speed. The Mars 2020 mission will seek signs of ancient Martian life by investiga...

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO's unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO's Extremely ...

What seemed at first like a rare instance of a huge, ancient galaxy revealed itself to be an even rarer pair of extremely massive galaxies, seen on the brink of merging when the Universe was only a billion years old. This outstanding source was first identified by ESA's Herschel space observatory, and later exposed in greater detail with the ground-based Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. The earliest galaxies in the 13.8 billion-year history of our cosmos starte...

The same aerodynamic machine design which I solely designed for my current company also won the contract (sum of £2 billion).

    ·         I reported an optimized design on the existing model (linear machine) in terms of repeatability, uniformity and reduced sensitivity to disturbance. This was also a success as the prototype confirms the improvement in the design modification.

    ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS

    ·         University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield MSc. Aerospace Engineering (Hons.)        20122013.

    ·         University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria (B.Eng. Agric) Farm Power and Machinery. 2005 – 2010.

    MSC PROJECT TOPIC

    Multidisciplinary Design Optimisation of an Aircraft Wing (Structural and Aerodynamics)

                                                                                    June, 2013 – September, 2013

    This involves the use of STAR CCM+, ANSYS, MATLAB, and CATIA in the MDO process. It is an intensive project since all programs must interact with one-another.

    An aircraft wing was designed and parameterized in CATIA using NACA 5412 airfoil and positioning the wing in a fixed model wind tunnel. The pressure distribution on the wing was computed by using STAR CCM+ for CFD in high fidelity. The wing CAE model was then coupled (File-based coupling) to ANSYS. This allowed mapping the pressure loading on the wing from STAR CCM+ to ANSYS. The nodal displacement from ANSYS was then transferred to STAR CCM+. This continued until a staggered convergence was attained.

    The process of File-based coupling (also used in Pipeline Analysis) was done for the 25 seeds of the Design of Experiments. The results were metamodelled in MATLAB and then inputted into the Genetic Algorithm Multi-objective Optimization solver in MATLAB. The sets of optimized design variables were then presented in a Pareto Optimum front in 3D.
