Mr. Burks joined Momentum Engineering Corp. in 2016. Since joining MEC, Mr. Burks has been immersed in the reconstruction of accidents and the inspection and photography of vehicles and sites. He has become adept at virtually recreating accidents using software packages such as PC-Crash while utilizing protocols developed by senior engineers. Mr. Burks is trained in 3D scanning technology using FARO 3D scanners, as well as software programs to arrange the scanner data.
Prior to joining Momentum Engineering, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at San Diego State University. While working in our San Diego office, Mr. Burks is pursuing his Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in Dynamics and Controls Theory.
During his tenure at SDSU, he has managed, produced, and presented many projects such as a proposal for Quick-Heat Treating processes in Powder Injection Molding to produce Motor Rocker Arms. He completed his senior research project on Adaptive Motion Surf Fins based on research by Thermodynamics Professor Dr. Asfaw Beyene. His work among his colleagues involved research into failure analysis and fluid mechanics. He used the AutoCad compatible based ANSYS program FLUENT to conduct his analysis.
