Employment History
Graduate Research Assistant 09/23/2008 - 09/31/2009
The Ohio State University
Columbus, OH, USA
-Department of Energy(DOE) sponsored project titled ‘CFD Simulation & Analysis of Particulate Deposition from Alternate Fuels on Gas Turbine Vanes’, as part of Turbine Heat Transfer & Aerodynamics group -Creation and validation of an UDF(User Defined Function) for a deposition model in FLUENT 6.3.26 using C language & application to GE E3 turbine vane -Delivered an improved deposition model for application to turbine vanes with film cooling
Summer Intern 06/30/2008 - 09/22/2009
Rolls Royce Energy Systems Inc
Mt. Vernon, OH, USA
-Improved surge line prediction of in-house compressor performance prediction program for pipeline centrifugal compressors -New prediction model with simple correlations eliminated predicting lower surge range than test -Developed a correlation for obtaining improved surge range in high flow co-efficient pipeline centrifugal compressors. New correlation improved surge range from ~18% to ~25% in high flow pipeliners -Simple cost-effective solutions eliminated need for changes in design rules, increased profits by offering greater surge range & provided protection against not meeting the sale agreements for pipeline compressors
