Q: Hey, why the long surname?
A: It's Lithuanian (spend some time at that site & you'll probably know more about Lithuanians than I do)

Projects Present

Microsoft Flight
Flight dynamics modeling for a reboot of a classic. Free and educational!
Exotic Paper Airplanes
A growing gallery of paper gliders, complete with folding instructions. If there's anything I want to be remembered for when I die, it's for blanketing schoolyards in recycled papercraft.
Hairball and its assorted periphera
Computers and technology are such high maintenance these days.
Sofia
Married life is just as much maintenance as it's always been...
Tae Kwon Do
At the Studio of Korean Karate in College Park, MD. I attained a black belt in 1996, am now a second degree black belt and started bringing my son in as well.

Projects Past

Science Applications International Corporation [SCIENCE!: DO NOT PRESS]
Sonar simulations for naval trainers, saving the whales one classroom at a time.
Boeing Integration Center [Boeing Network Centric Operations]
Distributed simulation demo platform for some of the best projects and programs the company to offer. Working here is like being in a big international corporate LAN party!
Despite the name, there is no math involved... it's just not that kind of "integration".
Boeing Air Traffic Management [Boeing ATM Wallpaper]
Helping bring the aviation industry into the information age.
UMCP ENSE
Arcology Systems Engineering (pdf)
MSSE Thesis for the ISR at the UMCP
Defense pitch: pdf
 
Cornell BS M&AE
PATMOS International Corp.
Parallel Asynchronous Transputing Multiple Operating System For a time, I worked for a company in Ocean City, MD developing distributed, fault tolerant, high availability clusters. They seem to be gone now, though. It was fun getting paid to do what I'd probably be doing during my spare time anyway.
FEAtris [3D tetris + FEA screenshot]
3D tetris used to create input scenarios for finite element analysis. I hacked Gnome 3D tetris to spit out geometry information to a perl script that formatted it as a brick FEA problem for analysis using slffea. Every time you dropped a brick, the 3D SLFFEA output would be recomputed and updated.
Heir Apparent [Pine wood derby truck]
Pine wood derby truck entered under the team Buck Trucks. Final project for Intermediate fluid dynamics course instructed by the venerated CHK Williamson.
The Mule [Mule ascending ramp animation]
Mechanical Design & Analysis cargo lifter.
Torkomicron
Mechanical Design & Analysis torque wrench project. The documentation to this device (Ye Torkonomicon) has been lost to the ages.
Pneumatic Motor
Pressured-air-powered motor. Our design didn't have enough power strokes to make it through a full revolution, but the virtual model works pretty well. They didn't let me have a lot of fun with the presentation this time :P .
Cornell Rigid Airfoil Team [WingSail]
How to sail... really fast.
Granular Flows in Microgravity Research Project
Measuring the impact coefficients of small spheres:
mu friction
epsilon normal restitution
beta tangential restitution
Linux.com's Tuneup page
How to get the most out of your Linux system. I accidentally started volunteering for this site during the summer of 1999. The tuneup site seems to have gone away, but the content lives on in various translations.
Cornell Student Linux Users Group
Web page about using Linux on campus
American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Web page for the Cornell University section. Actually, that server left with me, but an even older version of the CUASME pagestill seems to be lurking around.
 
Eleanor Roosevelt HS
R/C Aircraft
I built my way up to a 4 channel gas aircraft over the years, using a 2 channel glider and a balsa-n-tissue paper rubber band powered Spitfire as stepping stones. I'll scan some pictures of them eventually.
Raytraced Animation
Browse through some of my older Gif89a animations. Many were rendered with POVray. More in the pictures directory. Hope I have some time to play with this stuff again, now that I have some decent hardware.
Nerds By Choice Homepage Nerds - by Choice!
Looks like John finally nuked it, though... it's a shame...
It's a Research Practicum project! [Quack!]
"The Effect of Canard Winglets on Aircraft Lift"
Graduation requirement of the Science & Technology Program at Eleanor Roosevelt High School.
 

Projects Future

Warren [Cornholio Warren] and Thaisa [Tigre Thaisa]
If these children are our future, the world is doomed!
