I look for parallel solutions in nature. For instance, nature develops solutions that are optimized over vast periods of time, it is a filter system where the weak solutions die out. If you create a complex solution is usually creates another set of complex issues.
Invented a new bidirectional variable pitch statorless reaction turbine for a wave energy converter.
Developing a new CAD method that uses a continuum definition to define both the geometry and the solution method. It is an n-dimensional definition that uses a spectral shape function to describe both the geometry and solve the fluid mechanics and structural mechanics. It describes a component/part as a single n-dimensional equation which enables the computation of the exact solution.
I discovered the Spatial Twist Continuum, the global connectivity constraint of a Hexahedral mesh. Developing an automatic 3D hex meshing program using this method.
Invented an air assist fuel injector with a shock wave nozzle with a 140% reduction in SMD.
