Prof. Luchtenburg and Three Mechanical Engineering Students Co-author “Modelling the Motion of a 2-Arm ROV”
POSTED ON: December 2, 2019
Mechanical engineering students Zhiyang (Sam) Chen ME’21, Rose Gebhardt ME’21, Christopher (Chris) Mignano ME’21, and Professor Dirk Luchtenburg teamed up with students from the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences and Professor Thomas Impelluso to co-author “Modelling the Motion of a 2-Arm Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).”
The paper was the result of a collaborative research project in multi-body dynamics modeling that uses a novel modeling framework called the Moving Frame Method (MFM). It was published in the Proceedings of the ASME 2019 International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE) conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Sam, Chris, and Professor Luchtenburg attended the IMECE conference earlier this month; where Professor Luchtenburg presented the paper.
Below are statements from Sam and Chris on their experience at the IMECE conference:
“I believe engineering is not an individual project, but a life-long group project. The IMECE conference is just the right place to find potential project topics, partners, or even mentors. I am very glad I took the chance Cooper provided to participate in the conference and I also really enjoyed this trip as a break for myself. If anyone is being provided with opportunities like this, take it and you will learn!” - Sam Chen ME’21
“The conference was an incredible networking opportunity. I met so many amazing people in the field of mechanical engineering. Hearing the advice of students, professors, and industry titans from around the world was an extremely valuable experience that I will never forget. Thank you to Sam, Rose, Professor Luchtenburg, our Norwegian cohorts, and Cooper for such an incredible opportunity, I would recommend attending to anyone who has the chance.” - Chris Mignano ME’21
