Below you will find a variety of miscellaneous projects that Jared has worked on and was able to post about.


Magnet Encoder FEA Analysis

This is a magnet encoder analysis that was part of a project where a hobby RC servo was given an absolute full rotation encoder. It can spin at several hundred RPMs and maintain a rotational accuracy of better than .1 degrees. This allows low cost servo's to act as both a drive motor, as well as a positioning device.

Thermal FEA Analysis

This is a thermal Finite Element Analysis (FEA) that I did for a heated lift table platform. This lift table heats up and cools down a 7,000 lbs molding die. I had to maintain a temperature on the top of 115F +/- 5F. This analysis allowed me to meet that spec on the first try. Click here for more

Radio Props

Radio Propagation Analysis

This is a Longley Rice radio propagation analysis done via SPLAT which combined an NEC antenna gain analysis. I did this while setting up my radio antennas. Click here for more

Engine PCB caseEngine PCB

MIT Free Engine Management System

I developed several open source engine management systems. My goal is to make my snow blower fuel injected and function as a platform for low cost experimentation. I've got many of the pieces assembled and as I write this I'm waiting for the software group to work on the software side, in hopes they will have it functioning in the near future. I recently had some censorship issued with the person modering the open5xxxecu forum, so I now post my files at this page view the snow blower here


Wireless Computer Communication

I transmitted digital data between two computers with a set of 916.5 MHz transceivers and also a set of 10 GHz transceivers. I did this communication as part of my senior project, where I removed a data carrying cable, in a 1 inch diameter pipe on a product currently used by Applied Research Associates. This cable was part of the geotechnical and environmental exploration equipment that they offer to customers, and it's removal should decrease the cost of using these tools.

Machined block

Constructed in the Machine Shop

I have machined fairly complicated 2D parts (normal machining) and I have also CNCed 3D surfaces (free form). My talents range from rapid prototyping to precision machining in the +0 / -.001 tolerance range. I have made a web page about some of these machined projects. You can view the machining page here.

Solid Car

Solid Modeling and Gif Animation

This was part of my activities in the alternative energy club. We converted this car to electric from a gas 84' VW. This vehicle has placed my picture in several local and national media publications, and has also given me hands on experience that typically can't be extracted out of the college learning experience. One day I made a solid model of the vehicle and animated it into a motion gif. The solid model can be walked around and examined with your web browser. That page can be viewed here.
