Amphibious Aircraft Gear Warning System
Approximate Dates: 11/08-9/09
Operating System: Linux and Windows
Wrote a program for an embedded device to produce
appropriate audio and visual warnings based on real-time GPS
position, an airport location database, and relay board data
providing the aircraft's gear position. The need for real-time data
required an optimized database search algorithm, as well as the use of USB
drivers and the gpsd daemon.
Implementing a Spray Model into an Adaptive Mesh Refinement
Approximate Dates: 7/96-8/01
Language: C++ and FORTRAN
Operating System: Linux and Unix
Implemented a discrete spray model into a low Mach,
Navier-Stokes code that employs adaptive mesh refinement. Spray submodels
included aerodynamic drag, turbulence, droplet oscillation and distortion,
breakup, evaporation, and collision and coalescence. Special provisions
for the treatment of the spray within the adaptive mesh refinement
framework were also developed.
See my dissertation for more details.
Cross-Correlation of Magnetic Features Code
Aproximate Dates: 6/93-7/94
Operating System: Unix
Wrote a program to cross-correlate pairs of magnetic sunspot
data over a twenty-five year data set to determine the direction and
magnitude of the flow of the sun's photosphere with respect to latitude
and solar cycle.
