projects

NCSU - Senior Design Project  by  Marie Beverage    
August, 2006 - Present
Worked with a team of eleven students to design, analyze, and construct a moveable engine dynamometer test stand capable of being adjusted for use with various engines. The analysis of the test cell also took into consideration the air intake, exhaust, cooling, and fuel systems that would be required for effective use of the dynamometer test cell in a permanent facility.

MAE 412 Design Project  by  Marie Beverage    
January, 2006 - Present
Along with three team members, provided an analysis of the system requirements for a scenario in which a plant's boiler feedwater heater had been taken out of service due to excessive corrosion. The analysis investigated the thermal efficiencies and costs of various replacement feedwater heater designs, as well as the economic impact of not replacing the heater.
