Stuff About Me
Engineering and Software System Solutions, Inc.
From November 23rd, 2002 to August 1st, 2003, I did contract work for
ES3 . Below is a sample image of the type of work I did.
Among other things, ES3 provides finite element software services to the
government and industry. Rather than using a continuum model, their FEA
software is based on the
discrete particle method
where a mesh is made up of
individual particles that, like traditional finite elements, are connected
by springs, but also may collide with each other. I view the theory as a
combination of finite elements and a particle system. My main tasks were to
make some analytical calculations to validate code as well as write software.
