The AMNL is always looking for highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students interested in research opportunities.
This project involves research into vibration models of spiral bevel gears and the development of a high-fidelity model that can reproduce the frequency spectrum of an actual gear train vibration. The developed model will be used to examine the effect of a tooth wear and cracking in the vibration signature of the transmission. The project is limited to models and geometries available in the public literature.
Required technical skills include two or more of the following: * Ability to use CAD software such as Solid Works, ACAD * Ability to develop finite element models and extract contact stiffness * Ability to operate laboratory instrumentation (oscilloscopes, multi-meters, function generators, AFM, laser lithography tool, spectrophotometer) OR willingness to be trained * Ability to code in MATLAB and use relevant toolboxes Successful applicants should be "team players", i.e. they are expected to be willing to work with other students, receive training and be willing to commit their time to train and assist fellow lab mates.
