Position: Mechanical / Methodology Engineer
BSME, Bucknell University
MENG, University of Connecticut
Design Automation Associates (2015 - present)
As a Mechanical/Methodology Engineer Adam is currently developing NX Open solutions for customers.
Quest Global (5 years)
As an Engineer with Quest Global, Adam performed 2D and 3D Finite Element Analysis. This included the use of proprietary Pratt & Whitney software to determine flaw and repair limits for military turbine engine components. He followed Standard Work in execution of structural analysis and generated transient thermal and structural response analysis for Alstom Power’s Heat Recovery Steam Generator components. Adam performed structural analysis of UTAS air ducts and associated components for future use in Boeing 787-10 airframe. He was able to leverage knowledge of the ANSYS programming language (APDL) and Excel VBA to develop time saving macros and spreadsheet tools. His contribution returned cost savings to customers and shared tools with coworkers and clients. As part of his responsibilities, he pursued ongoing process automation and streamlining, developed optimized methods for improving setup times and error proofing of models, and utilized parametric modeling methods for reuse of model setups for similar components. Adam created and optimized 2D/3D models and meshes, followed best practices for generation of 2D/3D models, including optimization of element count and mesh density/quality, and developed advanced techniques for “chunking” 3D duct models for mapped face meshing.
