INTERNSHIPS AND PROJECTS
Certification and Performance Engineer Intern, Cummins Marine, May-August 2015
i) Transparency testing of electronic control modules on an 8.3 liter marine diesel engine using torque curves,
emissions data (E5 cycle) and smoke opacity data(transient testing).
ii) Comparison of performance (Torque, BHP, BMEP and BSFC) of 15 liter Cummins engines (ISX, QSX) with
competitors’ marine engines in order to identify a competitive torque curve and Combustion, Performance
and Emissions (CPE) benchmarks in order to develop a new 15 liter marine engine.
iii) Performance of checks on warranty claim documents to eliminate inconsistencies in data.
Film Cooling Performance of Tripod Holes on the Endwall Upstream of a First Stage Nozzle Guide
Vane, January-March 2015
