- Design and Development of Gunsafe
Was involved in the prototype development of fire-rated gun-safes for export
Was responsible for concept development of Light Duty Safe with
a rating of 30 mins at 750 degree Fahrenheit.
Prepared the 3D model in
Creo (ProE) and supervised the development of 2D drawings in AutoCad.
Manufactured two prototypes for testing.
Development of a spring loaded clamping mechanism
Because of the failure of the existing clamp assembly, a new assembly was
I proposed a spring loaded assembly in which the weight of the
locking mechanism was balanced by the spring tension.
In this project, I was
responsible for the concept generation, prototype development, fabrication,
validation through cycle-testing and problem-solving during trials.
was successfully implemented in our products.
Development of single handle battening mechanism
As per one non standard tender enquiry, the customer requirement was a door
operated by a single handle.
I developed a crank and link mechanism for the
A prototype was manufactured with successful functionality check.
3D modelling & FEA analysis of Aluminum hatches
In this project, I modelled the entire product in Creo.
I was also responsible
for optimizing the design after conducting FEA simulations of the same in
This also helped in deriving the hydro pressure rating of 0.2 bar.
developed the AutoCAD drawings for prototype development.
was successfully manufactured and passed the hydro test at 0.2 bar.
Honours - Recognized for getting 100% marks (125/125) in Applied Mathematics - I in my
first semester and given a certificate for the same.
Technical Head of Mechanical Engineering Students Association (MESA), where
I was responsible for organising seminars to educate my juniors regarding the
recent trends in technologies in the mechanical field.
Won the best undergraduate project award at the annual final year projects
exhibition in my college.

Implemented the bias bar mechanism used for varying the brake pressure distribution.
As DFMEA, improved fatigue strength of the knuckle by choosing Mild Steel
(EN-36) as the material over Aluminium 6061-T6 used in the previous year.
Application of ANSYS for structural analysis and simulations of steering knuckle
under maximum loading conditions.
Application of Solidworks to model and optimize the knuckle design on the basis
of various iterations in ANSYS.
Did structural analysis of hubs, chassis, steering pinion, control arms and brake
Participated in the SAE BAJA India event in Feb 2014 in Indore where the team
passed the brakes test for the first time.
Participated in SASOL BAJA South Africa in Oct 2014.
In this competition we
were ranked 4th overall for Car Design Evaluation, stood first in Business Plan
Presentation and got the Best Social team award.
Poster International Conference on Precision, Meso, Micro & Nano Engineering
Indian Institute of Technology
Mumbai 10th Dec, 2015.
Presented a technical paper on my final year project as a poster which was titled
Work Breakdown Structure Planning for Design of All Terrain Vehicle.
The paper highlighted the importance of dividing complex interdependent activities
into measurable tasks for easy oversight.
