Planned action items

This week

  • I had to learn more about hot forging
  • Read Anand’s recent paper
  • Through the inverse method Anand is following, learn more about the different recrystallization and its theoretical models

Achieved action items

  • I gained an insight that cDSP is a very important tool applied in numerous different scenarios from Dr. Mistree’s lecture on 2/13.
  • Hot forging
  • Importance of Anand’s research paper and his inverse method to be able to model the hot rod rolling phenomenon for TATA.
  • For my poster, I will be looking at solving a small problem dealing with grain growth and cDSP.

Value gained

This week while researching about the professors at MIT, I found out about numerous different fields my research can take me.

This week, I finally know what I am going to focus on and the problem I will be trying to solve. Now that I have a plan, I can get started into specializing in this particular area.


Table 2: Self-evaluation

Competencies that you wanted to develop and the progress in that

  • To be able to find a particular topic to research on
  • Get accustomed to reading more technical literature

Lessons learned (from modeling side, based on papers read and any minute information that you found useful and new)

I was much faster at reading Anand’s paper this time because I knew what to expect and my familiarity with the topic.

Overall feeling (was there too much work load and any changes that you prefer)

I really enjoy that I am starting to understand what my future might look like. Also, I am getting to learn about amazing opportunities available, which I am really grateful for.

I am going to be implementing the cDSP a lot, therefore, I have to grasp all the concepts thoroughly.

Change and progress are two words that define my character and my ultimate goals. I have a vision to bring a global change by targeting the psychology, because that is the easiest to change. My aim is to incur a self-progressive routine for myself and then help the people around me to progress themselves. In my perspective, walking towards a defined target should be everyone’s goal while keeping in mind that things don’t go as planned but still the target should remain unchanged.
