Helping hands are better than praying lips.


I am a Mechanical Engineer with over 3 years professional experience.I am currently doing my PhD at Lancaster University. I'm trained engineer in technical areas and aspects of engineering including Composite Materials, Structural Impact, Damage of Composite Materials, Delamination of Composite Materials, Failure Analysis Finite Element Simulation and mechanical software (Solidworks, Ansys workbench and APDL, Nx-Nastaran, AutoCAD and Programming). Check my youtube channel for more tutorials: Full ACP tutorial in my page in udemy: Accepting Project: You can donate if you like models: Please note that I cannot answer all questions as I receive high volume of questions and I have limited time to dedicate to answer questions.

Thesis title: Optimization of Machining Parameters and Tool Angles in Machining Operations of AISI 1045 Steel.Finite element analysis based techniques for simulation of the cutting process are available and provide several benefits including anticipation of tool forces, disruption of temperature and stress, optimization of cutting tools geometry. However, the flow stress and friction at the work piece material in the cutting zone is not always available. In this Project the effect of changing the angle of cut, depth of cut and speed on the temperature is studied.

Thesis title: Mechanical Characterization of Fibre Reinforced Composite Material and the Buckling Performance of their Laminated Plate.The FRP composite materials are widely used in industry and in this project critical buckling loads of laminated composite plates with different stacking sequences are determined through experimental and finite element method.Tensile and Buckling tests have been used to find out property of material and critical buckling load respectively. I also used Abqus software to find out critical buckling load. The results from these two methods are compared and recommendation for replacing tests with modelling was made.

"The use of adhesive joints attracts most attentions due to their advantages of enabling the development of lightweight and cost-effective structures. However, current researches in adhesive joining mainly focus on the joints between same adherends. The aim of the project is to develop and validate a new self-adaptive multi-material adhesive joint (SMAJ), which could adapt the stress concentrations caused by configuration of the joint and mechanical properties of different adherends under both mechanical and thermal loadings. The project will involve design of a new configuration of SMAJ, design of new testing methods, mechanical tests (lap shear, creep/relaxation and fatigue), thermal dynamic tests and Finite element modelling. Finally, the design principles will be summarised."
