Responsibilities include experiment design, test piece design, optical setup, testing, data handling, flow analysis and project management (planning research activities and managing budget). For the duration of the research I contributed on the refit of various laboratories and the re-commission of a wind tunnel. I have also worked alongside experts from the research funding company to address aircraft-wide implications such as control, performance, power requirements and delivery and system installation.

    2011 Jun – 2011 Aug

    Summer Placement - Employer: The University of Manchester- Full-time

     

    Following the research carried out during my undergraduate dissertation, the UAV research group received additional funding to continue the vehicle development of Tumbleweed. My role was to design, test and build a lightweight carbon fibre structure and to explore the feasibility of using 3D printed parts in the structure. The vehicle concept was showcased at IMAV 2011 including a paper submission and presentation of the concept.

     

    2008 Sept – 2012 Jul

    Formula Student - The University of Manchester – Volunteer work part-time

     

    I joined the Formula Student Team at the start of my undergraduate studies. Over four years I was involved in various aspects of the team, including Steering System Design, Head of Suspension and Steering Design, Team Leader and Driver. Formula Student provided a hands on experience towards engineering with particular emphasis on component design and manufacture. As Team Leader I was responsible of managing a group of 18 on-going members and up to 60 new applicants, as well as heavily involved in the 2012 car design and led the team to the first full competition entry since 2008. The role as Team Leader also focused on advertising the team, UCAS presentations and demonstrations on a monthly basis, and obtaining a sponsorship deal with ESSAR.

    Member of AVT-239 Innovative Control Effectors for Manoeuvring of Air Vehicles

    The objective of the Task Group is to increase the TRL of the application of novel control technologies to manoeuvring through the assessment and development against key integration criteria, e.g. complexity, maintainability, reliability, etc.

    Circulation control devices are explored as a replacement of conventional controls, as a balance between aerodynamic efficiency, power, mass and volume constraints.

    APPENDIX

    PhD THESIS LAY ABSTRACT

    Traditional control surfaces used on aircraft for high lift and manoeuvre control are complex systems requiring robust mechanical design to achieve the desired movement. Circulation control (CC) offers the potential to achieve similar or greater control gains by injecting air along the trailing edge of the wing with reduced mechanical complexity. A jet of air is blown over a rounded trailing edge surface, moving the aft stagnation point along the curved surface. Lift augmentation has been shown to reduce with increasing freestream velocity. To maintain the velocity ratio at higher freestream velocities the jet velocity has to be increased to and beyond critical condition. Previous work suggests the shock structure produced by a convergent nozzle operated at supercritical pressures causes shock induced jet separation, leading to a sudden loss in CC performance.

    Wind tunnel experiments were carried out to assess the effectiveness of supercritical devices in the presence of high subsonic freestream flow. By using a convergent-divergent nozzle geometry, the jet was shown to remain attached for higher supersonic blowing velocities obtaining lift augmentation factors of 10. The less complex shape of a convergent-stepped nozzle showed acceptable levels of flight control authority and could therefore be miniaturised to fit a CC device within the trailing edge height of a current generation aircraft, without further modification of the aerofoil shape.
