Major project: "Novel Nanocapsule Design Using Magnetic Fields as Release Trigger"

In this project, I modelled release mechanisms to be used in a novel nanocapsule design using one or two manetic fields. I had the opportunity to learn about the various magnetic properties in some materials (paramagnetism, diamagnetism, ferromagnetism and others), how magnetic properties of materials change with the size and geometry (though I focused more in spherical nanoparticles) and how this contributed to their behaviour. I then used mathematical models to predict the behaviour of these capsules under a) constant flow and a rotating magnetic field or b) under both a static and a rotating magnetic field.

Major project: "Design of a Robotic Lower Limb System"

In this project, I carried out simulations modelling the forces on a design of a lower limb robotic system. The design was of the skeleton of the robotic leg and I had the chance to use a popular 3DS© software, Abaqus© to simulate the various forces through the material chosen. I made several different designs for the different leg parts (the tibia, the fibula, the ankle and the foot). Of these, the hardest to design on the software was the foot, because of the shape of the toes. The results were promising, as they showed the compression that is normally experienced in the foot. The easier design was the tibia/fibula combination. I decided to fuse the two into a single hollow tube that connected to the foot via the ankle, which was designed to resemble a ball-and-socket joint.
