Rolls-Royce (R.R.) is newcomer to the GCC senior project list. Perhaps best known for their luxury automobiles, R.R. has many business interests throughout the world. This project comes to GCC from the R.R. engineers in Pittsburgh who are responsible in part for developing software and services for nuclear power plant equipment monitoring.
R.R has a need for and easily portable demonstration device that will allow them to show case their products to customers around the world. The device will use simulated equipment/system failures to demonstrate R.R. power plant monitoring capabilities involving flow monitoring, stress measurement, vibration analysis etc. The device will need to travel well on an airplane and be of a quality such that R.R. will be proud to show it to potential customers. The project will provide students with an opportunity to become familiar with nuclear power industry and Rolls-Royce Nuclear Engineering Services in particular.
