I performed high quality Aerostructural/Flight Stability calculations using CEASIOM for the Design of FANTASSY Aircraft (http://cordis.europa.eu/result/rcn/141322_en.html)
I developed a MATLAB code using the Aircraft Stability equations, investigating the stability and control modes of radio-controlled aircrafts. This code was further calibrated with Flight tests.
I designed and manufactured a horn for ultrasonic homogenizer using Finite element models and analytical calculations.
For more than 9 years I was the Leader of UPat ATLAS Team (http://atlasteamupat.weebly.com/), building 5 different radio controlled cargo aircrafts (drones). I strongly involved in Aerostructural design working with composite materials and the aircrafts' ground and flight testing plan. Ι also was the team's Captain during Flight Competition, organizing the strategy, succeeding the maximum score.
I designed and manufactured a scaled structure for Ballast Water Treatment. I introduced the testing procedures for the components' high pressure testing. I also developed a Numerical Fluid Mechanics method in MATLAB for the pressure drop estimation in the system.
I developed a numerical model for the calculation of temperature distribution through a hypersonic vehicle's thermal shield during re-entry . The method was calibrated with real time flight data. The technique is AIAA's technical note: doi: 10.2514/6.2006-7939, AIAA 2006-7939
I developed a Multidisciplinary Mathematical Method for the Principal Investigation and Feasibility Study of MIFIS Concept. The MIFIS Concept is a proposed system for hydrates intervention and offshore/blow-out recovery.
I developed a kinematics/dynamics mathematical model for the simulation of a Space Deployable Boom Structure.
I performed a high quality thermostructural calculations using FEM for the efficient thermal management of ASPIS Box (http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/92011_en.html)
I developed a numerical model for the calculation of aerodynamic coefficients of a space vehicle during the re-entry in hypersonic regime. The method was calibrated with wind tunnel measurements. The technique is AIAA's technical note: doi: 10.2514/6.2006-8086, ΑΙΑΑ 2006-8086
