Designed assemblies and components used in server-class disk drives. Work included design of aluminum die castings, precision injection moulded parts. steel stampings, FEA, dynamic and modal analysis, vibration testing, and CAD layout of top-level assembly. Used Pro/E and Seimens NX CAD extrensively.
On one-year contract to design innovative solar panel line. Work included optimizing frame profiles to achieve maximum stiffness using minimum material. Created FEA model in Solidworks Simulation that accurately captured failure mode of a glass panel pushing through an aluminum frame under heavy snow loads.
Worked with Chief Technologist to design a rotor magnetizer assembly for 3 MW generator.
