About

I am passionate Mechanical Engineer which have completed my engineering from A. C. Patil College of Engineerig, Kharghar, Navi Mumbai in the year 2019. I am interested in the feild of Computational Fluid Dynamics. Over last 6+ months, I have been writing code, running simulation with a wide array of programming language and simulation software. Currently, I am pursing my Master in Computational Fluid Dynamics at SKILL LYNC. I am specialising in Computational Fluid Dynamics. This portfolio incorperate all my project in Computational Fluid Dynamics where I have demonstrated my ability to use Octave, OpenFoam, ANSYS FLUENT, Python and the chemical kinetic software Cantera. I am currently doing CFD using Python and Cantera. This protfolio will be updated as I complete my project.
