Implementation of 3D Grid Movement Algorithms

This project involves the development and integration of mesh movement algorithms with the analysis software at Bombardier Aerospace. The algorithms are used to conform the volume mesh to the geometry as it evolves in an optimization cycle or in aero-elasticity analyses.

Improved Sizing of Defects Using Ultrasonic Phased Arrays

Olympus NDT is a world-leading manufacturer of innovative, nondestructive testing instruments that are used in industrial and research applications ranging from aerospace, energy and automotive to consumer products. The primary focus of this internship research is to sharpen images of cracks and imperfections that have developed in oil pipelines to within + 0.5mm using an ultrasonic phased array. Ultrasonic phased arrays are a relatively new technology for industrial testing and currently can size defects and cracks to within + 2mm.
