Space Launch Systems
During my undergraduate studies, I worked at the Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Lab (later Space Launch Research Centre) at K. N. Toosi University of Technology from 2007 to 2010, working on developing optimization tools and system models for preliminary sizing of space launch systems. I did an internship at the Space Systems Research Center (SSRC) at KNTU, where I worked on the preliminary sizing of liquid propellant rockets. This led to my undergraduate thesis on the preliminary sizing of launch vehicles, titled "A Computational Model for the Conceptual Design and Preliminary Sizing of Multistage Expandable Space Launch Vehicles".
- Development of an Ant Colony Optimization code and applying it to launch vehicle conceptual design models available at the lab
- Development of a 3DOF flight simulation code for trajectory analysis of space launch vehicles
- Development of a liquid propellant rocket engine conceptual design program
- Web-editor for the group website
