February - May 2018
Visiting SUTD in Singapore to continue research on additive manufacturing.
Attended the AIAA SciTech Forum in Kissimmee, FL.
The paper Physics-Based Low-Order Model for Transonic Flutter Prediction is accepted into AIAA Journal.Won Best Paper in the 8th AIAA Theoretical Fluid Mechanics at AIAA Aviation 2017 with the paper Towards a Low-Order Model for Transonic Flutter Prediction.
MIT Hyperloop project completely wrapped up. Read the final report here.
Transonic flutter is a critical design constraint for commercial transport aircraft, and therefore needs to be included as early as possible in the design. Currently developing a flutter model that can be used in a conceptual aircraft design tool.
How do you design something if you have all the freedom in the world? Currently developing a design methodology for additive manufacturing based on lattice structures, while taking into account manufacturability with 3D printing.
Co-founded and led MIT's entry in the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition 2015 - 2017. The team won Design Weekend in 2016, and finished amongst the top three teams in Competition Weekend in 2017.
