  • Project Leader for the development of hardware and software components to computerize and automate the air conditioner test apparatus at York International, Norman, OK.
Graduate Research Experience
My graduate research has been valuable applied engineering experience. I have been working under the direction of Dr. M. C. Altan on a research project sponsored by NASA, focusing on gravity effects during molding operations in composite materials manufacturing. I began performing this research as an undergraduate, and in the past year I have been the principal experimental research student for the mechanical engineering component of the project. Some of my main responsibilities have included
  • Selection and Purchase of $20,000.00 in research equipment
  • Design and construction of several experimental mold filling apparatus, including extensive contact with the University of Oklahoma machine shop
  • Design, selection, and assembly of a computer controlled data acquisition system, including several specialized custom measurement circuits
  • Preparation of technical publications and presentations
  • Experimental design, experimental methods, and data analysis
Technical Publications
Transmission of results, designs, and methods are a vital part of engineering. Good computer and communication skills have facilitated my preparation of 9 conference publications, and a Journal article in less than a year. More specific details from my research is contained in the following:
  • Olivero, K. A. and Altan, M. C., Fiber Concentration Distribution In Planar Mold Filling, ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition, CAE and Intelligent Processing of Polymeric Materials, 1998, Conference Proceeding and Presentation (Accepted for publication).
