Experience

Rolls-Royce

Aviation & Aerospace

Senior Design Engineer

Derby, England, United Kingdom

University of Birmingham/Rolls-Royce

Research

Research Engineer

Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

June 2008 - June 2013 (5 years)

The project undertaken for Rolls-Royce was primarily concerned with the investigation of candidate materials/processes of the future in order to produce single crystal high pressure turbine blades. The project relied heavily on CFD methods amongst other disciplines, which included;
 Process modelling using ESI ProCAST to model process parameters specific to casting setup; such as thermal profile of component, internal residual stresses and microstructure evolution.
 Development of CFD models from first principles to solve conjugate heat transfer (CHT) problems using Ansys CFX.
 Experimental design and implementation in order to validate computer models.
 Experience of solid modelling using Unigraphics NX and mesh generation using Ansys ICEM.
 Experience of metallographic sample preparation such as sample grinding, polishing and etching to reveal microstructure.
 Microstructure analysis of alloy components using optical microscopy and electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) to assess crystal orientation.
 Characterisation of the thermal properties of materials using techniques such as Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
