    A Thermodynamics Derivative Reduction Problems

    Hi everyone, I'm in a graduate level mechanical engineering thermodynamics class. We're working on derivative reductions using the gibbs and maxwell relations. I was wondering if anyone has any good sources of practice problems that I could use. I've looked through my textbook and there are...

    Engineering Experimental Fluid Mechanics Vs. Computational Fluid Mechanics

    Hi everyone, I just started graduate school and I've been working in an experimental fluid mechanics lab. We have a shock tube and run tests on studying supersonic and hypersonic airflow under different conditions. We use Schileren imaging and transducers to take measurements during tests. We...

    SolidWorks Sketching Visual Problem

    Hi Guys, thanks for the response! I did some digging online and after a long search I found out that it was a problem with one of the graphics settings. Deep in the settings of the software there is an "enhanced graphics" setting that apparently causes that issue sometimes. After turning it off...

    SolidWorks Sketching Visual Problem

    Hi Everyone, I could use some help in SolidWorks, when I go to sketch geometry, the software creates a lot of lines that extend off the starting point and they don't go away until I snap back to the starting point. I have an image attached to show what is happening. This creates a problem...

    Grad School Flow Simulation PC Build

    That sounds great thanks for the input! I didn't realize it could take up to 100+ cores, I'll defintely look into some options and plan for pre/post processing locally. Thanks for the help!

    Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering Undergrad Senior Design Project

    Hi everyone, This semester I'm enrolled in a senior design course where the students must fully design and fabricate a project from scratch that solves a problem. I've been struggling to think of ideas, so far I have some ideas on a windmill/turbine and a few electricity generation device ideas...

    Online ME or AE Program for Active Duty Military Service Members

    Hello everyone, I have a friend who serves in the military, he enlisted right out of high school (about 3 years ago) and he is looking to start a program to earn his bachelors degree. Due to his current role in the military, he needs to take courses online in order to fulfill his duties. He...

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    Yeah that's a great point, I've never rented an apartment before so that's definitely something that I'll have to figure out in the future, thanks!

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    Thanks for the response, these are all great questions that you brought up and stuff that I haven't even thought about due to lack of experience. I'll definitely take them into account!

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    That's a great point, I'm hoping to get into a lab where I can come and go as I please as long as I get my work done and attend meetings. Once I find out the main schools I'll apply to I'll reach out to some of the students there and see what they say. Thanks!

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    Currently I'm living at home with my parents, I have about a 30 minute commute during the week to get to campus and I have time to take care of him and bring him on walks and stuff. So I suppose if grad school is similar (obviously might be busier but a similar schedule maybe) then I should be...

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    That's a great point thank you. I think I'm going to try to take care of him during it and then if it becomes too much to handle I could have my parents take over for me until I finish school thankfully.

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    I've had my dog for about three years now, I should have mentioned earlier in the thread that he's very well trained and behaved. I've had family pets before so I have an idea of the amount of work and attention they need. That's a very good point about needing someone to take care of him for a...

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    I've had my dog for about three years now. If I have to I could leave him with my parents and they could keep an eye on him while I'm in school. I'm also not sure if I'll need to commute yet or if I'll be living in an apartment. It's tough to say as most of it relies on which programs I get...

    Other Taking Care of a Pet while in Grad School

    Hi everyone, This may (or may not) be a silly question to ask but I figured I would throw it up on here and see where it takes me. I'm a senior ME major and I am currently looking into and applying to MAE (ME/Aerospace) PhD programs and I was wondering if it would be possible/realistic to take...

    Getting into the Aerospace Industry: Fluid Mechanics/Aerodynamics or Robotics/Dynamical Systems?

    That's a great saying and should probably be more common among undergraduate professors speaking to their students. I'll look into a pilots license, it's definitely something on the bucket list but if I can get credit for it that's even better. Thanks for the advice!

    Getting into the Aerospace Industry: Fluid Mechanics/Aerodynamics or Robotics/Dynamical Systems?

    Thank you for the input, I've been looking into flight controls as well, the programs that I've been looking at seem to include flight controls in their robotics/dynamical controls program.
