Modeling and Stress Analysis
I have experience utilizing computerized Engineering tools to solve design problems where Finite Element Analysis is required. This type of analysis has been conducted on railcar systems retrofits to ensure designs satisfy Federal regulations for 8-4-4G loading. My experience in this area also extends to performing analysis on modified structural design components on railcars and post accident bolstering of structural areas on locomotives. This is done to ensure areas that have previously failed during an accident impact can withstand future accident impacts.
