Topology Optimisation of Lattice Structure Additive Manufactured Knee Implants

A Master's project that seeks to develop a novel topology optimisation method, that will optimise the lattice structure design of a knee implant by varying regional volume fractions such that bone remodelling is optimised whilst ensuring strength requirements of in-knee loading conditions are met.

'The Symbioturner'

A group project to design an electronic hand-held key-turner for arthritic individuals. Less than 200g, can fit in a pocket and turns an average lock in two seconds.

Miniature Motor Car

A group project to design and manufacture a miniature motor car to be tested in a race, tug-of-war and 1000N loading test. The four wheel drive driveshaft design allowed for strong torque performance with minimal compromise on weight and speed. The car was undefeated in the tug-of-war and came 5th out of 28 entries in the race.
