Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering
Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University, Uttar Pradesh - Mathura, India
Percentage: 68.66 %
Amarnath Vidya Ashram Sr. Sec. School - Mathura, India
Percentage: 69.16%
St. Dominic’s Sr. Sec. School - Mathura, India
CGPA: 6.6


B.Tech Project: Analysis of Advance Aerodynamics Changes (GENERIC BUMP) in Aerospace Industry Using CFD
Computational Fluid Dynamics Computer-Aided Design Aerodynamics
B.Tech Project: Analysis of Advance Aerodynamics Changes (GENERIC BUMP) in Aerospace Industry Using CFD
I was part of a team whose aim was to investigate the effects of generic bump in a fighter aircraft and its application as a boundary layer diverter (BLD) and compression surface for a Diverterless Supersonic Inlet (DSI). The task was to divert as much of the boundary layer as possible or prevent the boundary layer from entering the inlet of an aircraft by using generic bumps. Properties such as pressure recovery, boundary layer diversion, surface flow, change in Mach number and mass flow are the major parameters that are being analysed.
