My name is Matthew Holt, and here is my project for the MAE 211 Intro to Computational Tools course taught at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
A radial engine was chosen as the subject of my project because of their historical significance, along with my interest of how they operate. I modeled my project after many different designs, with the primary design being that of the Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp engine. Although I would have ideally made an exact replica of that specific engine, I ended up attributing the majority of the components to guess-work, or to similar components seen on other engines. Altogether, this project had 219 total parts, 33 unique parts, and 98 moving parts with the motor feature in Solid Edge.
I am happy to have had the opportunity to learn about Solid Edge and Keyshot, and experience the magnitude of potential that these programs have to offer.
