Dr. Rupesh Patel

Dr. Rupesh Patel has since January 2016 worked at Smart Manufacturing Technology (SMT) as a systems analyst/software developer. During this time he has been actively involved in research and development of functionality for the analysis of tooth interior fatigue fracture and for gear macro-geometry optimization. Prior to employment at SMT, Patel worked for several years as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Nottingham, specializing in structural dynamics and focusing on energy harvesting from natural sources of vibration. Patel was also employed in Japan in relation to this work and has published numerous scientific papers over his career. (Bio last updated 2016-09-01 Contact Randy Stott, Managing Editor, with changes.)

  • Finite Element Analysis of Tooth Flank Fracture Using Boundary Conditions from LTCA (September/October 2016)
    This paper demonstrates an application of the tooth interior fatigue fracture (TIFF) analysis method, as implemented in SMT's MASTA software, in which loaded tooth contact analysis (LTCA) results from a specialized 3-D contact model have been utilized to determine the load boundary conditions for analysis of tooth flank fracture (TFF).
