Enhanced Student Learning Experience in Technical Drawing and 3D Modeling through Augmented and Virtual Realities

SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grant 

2019-03-14

Technical drawing and 3D modeling are the important topics in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology programs at Farmingdale State College. Students must know these topics before they continue in the programs. One of the challenges in teaching these topics is to deliver teaching materials to students, because demonstration models are not always available. Students often need to share the models and have limited time to practice on the models. Accordingly, this proposal introduced new demonstration models through augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to enhance student learning in technical drawing and 3D modeling. In addition, this proposal investigated the possibility of developing a stackable micro credential in CAD for the college. The project not only will improve the student learning experience, it also teaches students how the new technologies can be applied in the engineering field and motivates students to achieve a better grade.

Improve teaching in MET freshmen courses, MET104 Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) and MET117 Manufacturing Processes, by means of a learning community and project based learning

Farmingdale State College 

2019-03-14

This is a Farmingdale Students First Campus Grant. This proposal created a learning community that combines MET104 Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) and MET117 Manufacturing Processes. The skills taught in these two courses are interrelated. For example, students in MET117 must know how to read technical drawings in order to work on their class projects. However, students will learn details of technical drawings in MET104. Similarly, students in MET104 must know the proper manufacturing processes when they design their class projects, but manufacturing processes are mainly taught in MET117. Therefore, the PIs believe that the learning community will certainly improve the student’s learning in the target courses.

Shaping the Green Future through Renewable Technologies

SUNY Conversations in the Disciplines Grant 

The purpose of the proposed program is to organize a conference for presentations and discussions in energy- related topics. Farmingdale State College has been hosting the annual International Energy and Sustainability Conference since 2012. Every year, the Conference Planning Committee makes improvements to the conference, by bringing new and exciting ideas for possible tracks, guest speakers, panel discussions, etc. For the 2014 conference, the PIs proposed to the Conference Planning Committee to include a special topic on Education and Workforce Training in Renewable Energy, in addition to the research-based presentations that are already planned for the conference. The special topic will be presented in the form of a panel discussion and a specified track. Faculty and students from different campuses, local business, and entrepreneurs are invited to attend the conference. The goals of the proposed program are:
1. To bring together the latest research and development works in energy and related topics, along with the industrial and management issues and challenges.
2. To provide a collaboration opportunity between campuses.
3. To provide a great learning opportunity in energy- related fields to the next generation of students.
4. To encourage students to participate in renewable energy research.
5. To enhance public awareness of emerging renewable energy resources and related topics.
6. To strengthen the workforce training programs in the renewable and sustainable technologies.

“Development of Assessment Plan for Online Thermo-Fluid Science Courses” Journal of Education and Practice

Yue Hung and Gonca Altuger-Genc

Due to the flexibility and accessibility aspects, online learning is in high demand. Many higher education institutions offer courses, certificates, and degree programs partially or fully online. Educators have been redesigning their courses for the online learning environment. Course management systems such as Blackboard, Moodle, and many others are adopted by higher education institutions to provide a platform to teach online courses. Transforming course contents from a traditional course to an online course can be challenging, as courses do have hands-on components such as laboratories, projects, and in-class exercises. Many educators shared their experiences in designing and developing online courses and provided approaches they employed when transforming an in-class course to an online course. However, it is also important to measure the effectiveness of the online courses and determine the proper learning activities for the online environment. Although using only course grades to assess the effectiveness of online courses may be adequate, it may not necessarily provide an in-depth assessment of each chapter/topic. The authors suggest to collected and assessed homework and exam grades for both in-class and online settings over multiple semesters. This will help the instructors to identify the topics, chapters, or modules students may have difficulty in general. This paper provides the development of an assessment plan to measure the effectiveness of online Applied Fluid Mechanics and Applied Thermodynamics courses that are offered in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Department at Farmingdale State College.

“Durability and Characterization studies of chromium carbide coated aluminum fuel cell stack” International Journal of Hydrogen Energy 41

Yue Hung, Hazem Tawfik, and Devinder Mahajan

Corrosion and interfacial contact resistance measurements were performed on chromium carbide coated aluminum 6061 and as-received aluminum 6061 samples. The coating was thermally sprayed onto the aluminum sample using the High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray technique. The chromium carbide coating consists of Cr3C2 top layer and Cr-C-Ni intermediate layer. The coating thickness was approximately 150 mm. A three-cell stack with chromium carbide coated aluminum bipolar plates was also fabricated for the durability and characterization studies. The coating thicknesses on the lands of the ribs and the walls of the valleys were approximately 300 mm and 150 mm, respectively. The stack was operated at the temperatures of 37 _C for 250 h and 80 _C for additional 500 h. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDX) analysis shows that the thickness, chemistry, and surface morphology of the coating material remained consistent after 750 h of operation. The inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) analysis was performed on the samples of membrane electrode assembly (MEA) and byproduct water that was produced during the fuel cell electrochemical reaction.

“Technical Drawing with AutoCAD, 2nd edition" Linus Learning

Jeff Hung

For more than two decades, AutoCAD has been a commonly used computer aided design software program for creating technical drawings. Although this program has simplified many drafting processes, engineering students are still required to learn the fundamental drafting techniques and their implementations using computer aided methods. Accordingly, the objective of this book is to introduce the fundamental knowledge of technical drawing and the well-known AutoCAD software program. One of the main features of this book is the considerable number of practice exercises. They provide the reader with hands-on experience. These exercises include detailed step-by-step instructions that allow the reader to follow through each exercise easily and quickly become familiar with the AutoCAD software program.

“Effects of Current Scan Rate on the Polarization Curve of Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries” Proceedings of International Energy & Sustainability Conference 2017

Yue Hung, Yuxiang Bu, John Kubin and Daniel Weinman

Polarization curve is one of the commonly used methods to evaluate the performance of electrochemical devices such as proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFB). For an optimized PEM fuel cell system, the performance of the fuel cell is steady as long as the fuels are supplied. Long duration of measurement points will have minimum effects on the polarization curves. On the other hand, electrolytes used in vanadium redox flow batteries are circulated through the cell and returned to the reservoirs after the electrochemical reactions. The oxidation state of the vanadium ions in the reservoirs will no longer be the same after the oxidized or reduced vanadium ions pass through the cell. For this reason, the duration between each measurement point is critical to the polarization curves, particularly for laboratory scale research where the volume of electrolytes is relatively small. Long duration of measurement points could result in misleading polarization curves due to the contaminated electrolytes. In this work, a single vanadium redox flow battery cell with 50 cm2 active area was fabricated and the electrolytic solution was prepared. The objective of this work is to investigate the effects of current scan rate on the polarization curve of the single VRFB cell.
