Two mechanical engineering seniors presented their research in the Student Design Competition at the 2016 American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Student Professional Development Conference held at Rutgers University April 22-24.
- Alfonso Costas (senior, mechanical engineering), presented his research on diffuser-augmented windturbines as part of the Old Guard Oral Presentation Competition. His advisor is Josué Njock Libii, associate professor of mechanical engineering.
- Akis Lyrintzis (senior, mechanical engineering) presented his work involving the modeling and simulation of fuel cells as part of thetechnical poster competition at the Design Exposition. His advisor is Don Mueller, associate professor of mechanical engineering.
The ASME Student Design Competition provides a platform for ASME Student Members to present their solutions to a range of design problems – from everyday household tasks to groundbreaking space exploration. Each team is required to design, construct and operate a prototype which fulfills the competition’s problem statement for that year.
