Cutting Force Estimation Software at NIST


National Institute for Standards and Technology


May 2021-August 2021


Gaithersburg, MD


MATLAB, Linear Algebra and Calculus


Develop a MATLAB program that inputs inertial sensor data to estimate cutting forces experienced by machine tools, to be applied in real-time machine health monitoring for large manufacturing plants.


As an intern, I was responsible for this project under the mentorship of Dr. Greg Vogl.


I presented my cutting-force estimation model at the NIST Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Colloquium. The model showed reliable force estimates, as shown in the results Figure.


This project required overcoming the challenges of a virtual internship platform in order to collaborate with my mentor Dr. Vogl in developing this product. I learned about how to organize large scale programming projects and improve efficiency of these computations, such as Fast Fourier Transforms and interpolation processes.
