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
Advanced Surface Modeling
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 performance criteria
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.
