Application of analytical techniques and experimental methods to the solution of engineering problems especially in the areas of Isotope Separation, Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Systems Analysis.
Ph.D. and forty years of experience solving engineering problems with emphasis on isotope separation, thermal analysis, fluid flow, systems analysis and two-phase flow. Well versed in both experimental and analytical methods. Capable of quickly analyzing problems and obtaining results in a timely, efficient and customer-oriented manner.
UT-Battelle / Lockheed Martin Energy Research / Union Carbide Corporation, Nuclear Division, Oak Ridge, TN. Have active ‘Q’ Clearance with Department of Energy.
Worked on the American Centrifuge Program for Oak Ridge National Laboratory and USEC, Inc. Performed modeling studies and data analysis of machine behavior and gas flow with the goal of optimizing performance. Also responsible for performing thermal analysis and recommending design changes on a wide variety of key machine components to ensure safe, efficient and optimum performance.
Worked on Power Electronics and Electric Motor Thermal Management. Analyzed the thermal performance of numerous state-of-the-art electric motors. Quickly developed models to predict the temperature levels of various components within the motor that compared well with experimental results. Analyzed motor thermal behavior under both steady-state and transient conditions for a major equipment manufacturer. Identified high temperature components and recommended design and operating changes to improve motor thermal operation.
Performed experimental work on the convective heat transfer characteristics of mercury in support of the Spallation Neutron Source Program.
Worked on the Motor Challenge Program for the Department of Energy. Goal was to increase market penetration of energy-efficient industrial electric motor-driven systems. Coordinated showcase demonstrations that illustrated energy savings modifications to motor-driven equipment such as fans, pumps and compressors in an industrial setting. Assessed, analyzed, quantified and documented the savings associated with the integration of a variety of technology and application options.
Assigned to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA to work on Atomic Vapor Laser Isotope Separation (AVLIS) Program.
Developed and applied detailed 3-dimensional finite-element thermal and stress analysis models to various complex AVLIS components. Identified design weaknesses in hardware, recommended changes and coordinated experimental testing for verification. This resulted in greater system reliability, longer component lifetime or increased operator safety.
Developed and modified systems analysis computer codes to model the overall interaction of key hardware components in the AVLIS process. Worked with principal scientists to develop compact algorithms of complex physical formulations for input into systems analysis codes. Refined models to obtain good agreement with experimental results, leading to optimized performance and improved hardware.
Applied and improved analytical models to optimize the gas flow within a centrifuge machine. Analyzed heat transfer and gas flow in various centrifuge components. Interpreted analytical results and translated computer output into improved hardware. Communicated effectively with test people to correlate experimental work with analysis. Redesigned centrifuge components and optimized operating design point to yield significant increase in machine performance.
Performed experimental and analytical work relating to the thermal and hydraulic behavior of boiling refrigerants. Developed generalized equations for pressure drop, heat transfer coefficient and critical heat flux for cases where no satisfactory correlations previously existed. Equations resulted in more efficient heat exchanger design, resulting in considerable capital cost saving. Results documented in a detailed report still widely used today in heat exchanger analysis within the Gaseous Diffusion community.
Developed and tested state-of-the-art heat exchanger surfaces for Gaseous Diffusion process. Analyzed surface efficiencies on the basis of heat transfer rate and pressure drop.
