Work History
Asst. Manager, 03/2015 - Current
Circle K Stores, Inc. Kissimmee, FL,
  • Managed simulations of chassis structures for developmental projects, ensuring product reliability and quality criteria, and maintaining project schedule.
  • Responsible for leading a new line of business as well as helping to foster current and develop new customer relationships.
  • Carried out Non-linear FEA (large deformation, frictional contacts and metal plasticity) using ABAQUS standard/explicit for durability, static analysis (quasi-static) and impact analysis of the suspension components.
  • Strategized and evaluated vehicle suspension assembly components that meet quality standards in the development phase for new vehicles.
  • Lead and mentored team of 15 engineers in understanding the client’s requirements and also acting as a liaison between them.
  • Responsibility of developing of long-term business strategies, and short-term business planning for simulation group.
  • Reviewing and approving the reports before they are presented to various teams and also helping the product development team by suggesting the changes to meet the reliability targets.
  • Hired, mentored and conducted performance reviews for CAE engineers as per client’s requirements.
Design Engineer, 09/2013 - 03/2015
Nucor Corporation Naples, FL,
  • Performing Thermo-mechanical stress/fatigue analysis on engine cooling components such as Radiators and HVAC systems in ABAQUS and calculating the damage using Mason-Coffin equation.
  • Characterization and parameterization of low cycle fatigue of high temperature Ferritic and Austenitic stainless steel grades for various non-linear and viscoplastic material models for ABAQUS simulations.
  • Calculation of dynamic stiffness for the brackets by performing Frequency response test.
  • Correlation of Modal and Frequency response analysis for the HVAC units between test and FEA with the help of a simple hammer test (Trained in DENSO Japan).
  • Performing static non-linear pressure pulsation loading on radiator plastic tanks, which are modeled as anisotropic materials to evaluate the structural integrity and root cause analysis.
  • Lead multifunctional teams to create a CAE standard operating procedure for all the global teams to ensure uniformity of results.
  • Lead the effort to implement new design optimization tools in collaboration with a cross-functional team of engineers and software developers.
Sr. Design Analyst, 04/2012 - 09/2013
Ford Motor Company Us Sunrise, FL,
  • FE simulations of exhaust manifolds, manifold turbo modules, catalytic converters, fuel rails and EGR coolers.
  • Develop methods to calculate the thermo-mechanical fatigue of the EGR cooler and determination of the highly cyclic fatigue strength of exhausts systems using nCode Designlife.
  • Performed linear dynamic analysis for power train and engine components to achieve the high cycle fatigue targets of EGR Coolers and fuel rails for their natural frequency, different frequency response analysis such as sine- tone, random and resonant dwell vibration loading.
  • Technical coordination of the test standards for the thermo-mechanical / short-term fatigue examination, evaluation of the measured data and identification of the material parameters on the basis of the material models and brazing joints.
  • Presentation of results and recommendations of alternatives and possibilities for improvement to the respective design state to the product validation teams and customers.
CAE Engineer, 03/2011 - 04/2012
F.Tech R&D North America Inc City, STATE,
  • Performed Finite Element Modeling of full Chassis assemblies, worked closely with the designers to achieve the targets of cradle assembly and suspension arms for their modal, stiffness, static strength, permanent set, point mobility and durability load cases.
  • Physical testing of the cradle assembly is simulated in FEA and fatigue failures are predicted in both weld and parent metal and provide the counter measure direction to achieve the target prior to the actual testing.
  • Performed finite element modeling of brake pedals to calculate their stepping and lateral rigidity.
  • Performed topology, topometry, shape and sizing optimization on several automotive components like bumpers, control arms and cradles to minimize mass while meeting requirements.
