Aerodynamics of Propulsion

This research project investigated the design and implementation of a motor-controlled pitot probe for measuring dynamic pressure in a wind tunnel. A basic computer coding architecture has been implemented to coordinate motor movement to place the probe into position and record the pressure data to a text file. This pressure data is used to create

Effects of Thermal Deformation in Constrained Sheet Metal

The purpose of this project is to understand the expansion of a piece of aluminum sheet metal, which is undergoing a thermal deformation, and is constrained along all four sides to compare it to the behavior of models in engineering software. A literature review has been conducted and materials have been purchased to create a
