• Pramash skateboard trucks, (
I designed and invented unique skateboard trucks (steering assembly) which gives experience as snowboarding and surfing. Patent has been filed and it’s pending (US61822711). During this project I gain work experience on Milling, CNC & Water Jet machines. And also learned G-code, Inventor, V carve, Flow path. So far four prototypes has been built and tested. Before building actual prototype the FEA were done in SolidWorks and GD&T knowledge was used to create drawings.
• Advanced Submarine Window Design
The project included building prototype of advanced Submarine Window in SolidWorks. Concept-to-Design development of the Advanced Submarine Window was done in SolidWorks. Drafting/Designing of the conceptual design and CAD analysis was done during this project
• Bicycle Steering Design Analysis
This project was done to create Bicycle Steering for CSUN Human Powered Vehicle 2014. The project included the analysis of the structure of steering and its component in SolidWorks. FEA, Stress analysis, Fatigue analysis, Thermal analysis, Frequency, and Vibration Analysis were done in Solidworks.
• Hydraulic Hybrid Bicycle
This project was done for CSUN Human Power Vehicle team 2013. We tried to build hybrid system where we tried to store energy in compressed air while decelerate and use that stored energy to accelerate. In this project knowledge of thermodynamics and Fluid mechanics was used.
