Planned action items

This week

  • Learn conceptually about the various parameters involved in the hot rod rolling process
  • Read about the case study of the Vanadium steel in the LPC book
  • Get started on the NSF Essay competition

Achieved action items

  • I gained a deeper understanding of the cDSP and the mathematics behind it by attending Dr. Mistree’s lecture on 2/20.
  • Learnt, conceptually, more about SRX, DRX, MDRX and GG – different stages of recrystallization and grain growth.
  • The case study helped me to connect the problem to the reality
  • Through the SRL presentation and the poster fair, I was bombarded with numerous ideas for my own poster.

Value gained

By knowing the variables required, I will be able to implement the cDSP and eventually be able to find the range of solutions for the grain size we require for the rod.

Competencies that you wanted to develop and the progress in that

  • I am continuously practicing to deep read and active listening
  • Better time management

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

  • When I see Dr. Mistree take notes, it really inspires and motivates me to become a learner like him.
  • Better time management is always a struggle but I am trying my best.

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

I feel like I am more focused on the things that would take me to MIT. I am trying to bring it to every aspect of my life.

I now have a new exciting project to work on for the NSF grant for the conference.

I am beginning to think more critically about the project.

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.
