Assisted my Graduate advisor for research and worked on my Graduate Masters’ thesis. Assisted Professors for Under-graduate Mechanical Engineering courses like Thermodynamics, and Introduction to Vehicle Aerodynamics. Graded tests and assignments, supervised students in labs, provided instructions in use of STAR CCM+. Masters’ Thesis: Study of DES and RANS flow over Simplified Car Body (Ahmed Body) for 35deg and 2deg slant angle. • Using CATIA v5 r16 for CAD modeling, ANSA for meshing, StarCCM+ for CFD simulations and EnSight for post-processing. • Compared current obtained computational results with experimental results. • Writing two publications based on current study.
Graduate Engineering Trainee (Assistant Line Incharge) July 2007 - January 2008
Bharat Forge Limited, Pune, India
