Professional Projects

Company : John Deere Technology Centre India, Pune
Title : Structural analysis of Power Take off Unit (PTO) for powertrain under different loading conditions.
Tools Used : ABAQUS, Hypermesh, Ms-Excel

Scope : Evaluation of the structural integrity of PTO (Power Take off) housing for engine under inertial loads, bearing loads and pump weights. Performing bolted joint analysis of PTO housing joint to study contact pressure at the interface of joints and leakage behaviour between mating faces. This involved the modelling all PTO parts and engine in Hypermesh, considering the geometry and contact nonlinearity. Non linear materials were considered for FE analysis. Deck preparation and analysis was done using Abaqus.

Company : Dana India Technical Centre, Pune
Title : Coupled Fluid Structure Interaction analysis of exhaust manifold gasket.
Tool used : ABAQUS, FLUENT, Hypermesh, MpCCI

Scope : The project constitutes pre processing of EMG and allied components using hypermesh for CFD as well as structural analysis. Non-linearities like contacts, material and geometric were duly considered during analysis. Deck preparation for structural analysis in ABAQUS, followed by performing Fluid Structure Analysis (FSI) coupling FLUENT and ABAQUS.

 Title : Structural (Non-linear), Vibration analysis and Durability analysis of Engine Oil Coolers. (EOC)
Tool used : ABAQUS, FE-Safe, Hypermesh

Scope : This project involved structural & vibrational aspects; the structural analysis is simulated for maximum static pressure inside EOC considering material and contact non-linearities to study the stresses developed in the critical regions. Vibrational aspect included the modal analysis for extraction Eigen modes and natural frequencies, followed by harmonic analysis to estimate its durability performance by evaluating the max. Stresses developed in the critical areas. The Pre-processing of cooler was carried out using hypermesh. Deck Preparation and post processing using Abaqus. Fatigue analysis is done using FE-safe.

 Title : Vibration Analysis of composite Thermal Acoustical Protective Shield (TAPS).
Tool used : ABAQUS, Hypermesh

Scope : In this project first TAPS were modeled as a composite using Hypermesh considering contact non-linearity and material non-linearity. This was followed by modal analysis to study the natural frequencies, Eigen modes and their behavior on TAPS. Later steady state harmonic analysis, using first 2 natural frequencies to estimate the maximum stresses induced due to Steady state Dynamic (SSD) response.

Academic Projects

 Title : Investigation of effect of fracture parameters on notch radius and thickness of CT specimen.
Duration : 6 Months

Scope : The project gives an idea about of how the crack initiates and propagates in a CT specimen. The detailed study, experimentation and simulation in ABAQUS is carried out on CT a specimen with varying notch radius and their effect on crack initiation and CTOD and found out.
