    ·         Result-driven Graduate in MSc. Aerospace Engineering (Hons.) (Distinction) having several experience in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Fluid Mechanics & Dynamics and Project Administration.

    ·         Best graduate, MSc. Aerospace Engineering, University of Hertfordshire, 2013.

    ·         Proficient in learning new concepts effectively and quickly, possessing a strong organizational, team-play and autonomous ability to work. Simply put, My Skillsets, Analytical thinking and Professional achievements are rare to come by as I am vast in Engineering knowledge and experience (B.Eng Agricultural Engineering + MSc. Aerospace Engineering). Additionally, I am vast in FEA; CFD; FSI; MDO; Condition Monitoring; Vibration Analysis (Spectroscopy); and Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy.


    ·         I started on a 3 months contract to design and report an international standard aerodynamic machine with improved performance compared to existing designs (linear machine) for a bid. I completed the design within the first 6 weeks (half way through) and won the bid. 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.

    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.
