Stricter/More Efficient Energy Use Model for Printers
Developed model for a consulting firm that advises power companies in the
Pacific northwest resulting in 40% savings compared to the current Energy
Star specifications. Monte Carlo simulations were conducted with modified
duty cycles. Approximately 30% of the printers currently on the market meet
this specification. Home and office duty cycles were tested on ink jets, mono
lasers, and color lasers.
Solar Array System - patented roof shingle product
Start-up renewable energy company designed a click-able system of roof
panels that resemble classic shingle design. Calculated
temperature/pressure tolerance of internal element under the physical strain
of the laminating process.
Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance
SBIR Collaborative Proposal for Special Operations Command (not funded).
Solution needed to include off-the-shelf technology. Proposed solution
consisted of license plates with retro-reflector bar code overlays. From
distance, infrared lasers would scan and read the bar code then query the
database to determine if the vehicle is registered as friendly. view full proposal
Heat Transfer Model with Discontinuous Boundary Conditions
3-D heat transfer model of ice sphere floating in water. Air temperature = 0
degrees Celsius and water temperature > 0 degrees Celsius, therefore
boundary conditions were discontinuous at the water surface.
