Finite Element Analysis
Extensive experience applying Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to a wide range of structural engineering
problems; Analysis types include linear static, non-linear static, inertia relief, buckling, normal modes, contact and
transient dynamic; Experience also includes multi-disciplinary studies such as fluid-structure interaction
Customized parametric and free-form surface modeling to create complex shapes for efficient hydrodynamic performance.
Modeling of structural components and systems including composite laminates; Specialized skills for efficient modeling of clean surface
geometry for FEA and CFD applications; Custom programming of CAD software to automate surface model creation to achieve functional
Hydrodynamic Design and Analysis
Foil section design, surface modeling of multi-section foils with
complex blends, twisted foils, multi-element foils, trim tabs, bulb shapes; Experience includes working closely with associates
and consultants to support potential-flow and RANS CFD analyses, providing advanced geometry modeling and pre-processing.
Laminate design, component engineering, panel and beam analysis, structural arrangements, construction
drawings including build sequence sheets and process specifications; Application of Finite Element Analysis to a wide range of
global composite structures for overall strength assessment as well as specialized studies for localized phenomenon including
panel stiffness, inter-laminar shear strength, bearing strength, secondary bonding strength and crack initiation
Structural design and engineering from first principals as well as scantlings to regulatory rules from classification
societies including ABS, DNV, ISO, RINA, IEC and others; Engineering for steel and composites construction; New designs as well
as calculations for assessment of conformance of existing designs to scantling rules.
of complex mechanical systems including general arrangements, component design, functional specifications, structural and kinematic
analysis, construction drawings, material specifications and manufacturing support
