LaTeX: More Than Just Academic Papers and Theses
This is a presentation I gave about what LaTeX can do some years ago. I've continued to update it (slightly) for other talks. As this is quite a large project with many files and packages, users on the Free plan may not be able to compile it successfully on Overleaf. If that's the case, feel free to grab the PDF here, and download the sources as a .zip for offline perusal/compilation!
Guide on using upnmthesis
upnmthesis is a LaTeX class for authoring theses that fulfill formatting specifications required by Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM). This class and template was commissioned by the university's Centre of Graduate Studies in April, 2016, for both undergraduate and postgraduate theses. A sample file sample-thesis.tex, as well as relevant sample chapters, are included in the package. upnmthesis is available as a template on Overleaf which I recommend you modify for your own thesis write-up. (You can rename it, but I'll stick with the file name sample-thesis.tex throughout this guide.) The latest version of this template can also be downloaded from my website.
Aeroelastic and Dynamic Structural Analysis of a non-tapered wing
In this document a thorough analysis of flutter will be presented, applied on a wing box which has been discretized using a FEM tool, MSC. NASTRAN, to cover both the dynamic structural analysis as well as the aeroelastic solution to flutter. Once the structural part has been detailed, a discussion about the flutter speed obtained with the Nastran SOL 145 will be presented, followed by some other solutions.

Aerodynamic optimization of the DONuT (dron with oriented thrust) rotor
The present work analyses designs of coaxial rotor systems in an attempt to maximize its performance in hover flight. The study is carried out with the software XROTOR and CROTOR. Influence of parameters such as tip radius, revolutions per minute, lift coefficient and number of blades have been studied. The optimization process has been carried out on two possible models of the drone DONuT. Both of them are designed to allowfor torque cancellation. In order to validate the designs, the optimized models have been 3-D printed to be tested in a test bench.
