Using the guidance provided by the US NRC regulatory guide 1.20 develop the overarching CVAP elements to support the construction license application
Develop screening criteria and methodology for various flow induced vibration (FIV) phenomena applicable to the reactor internals and core support structures.
Perform associated FIV analyses using hand-calculations and finite element models
Evaluate component performance against wear and FIV induced fatigue as necessary
Perform mechanical analyses of reactor structures, systems, and nuclear island components to verify that their performance remains within imposed limits as defined by applicable structural and pressure equipment codes and standards (AISC and ASME BPVC).
Work with interdisciplinary team of engineers to establish and optimize nuclear components design consistent with required functional and quality requirements.
Establish and maintain documents of analysis results and design solutions.
Key Qualifications and Skills
B.S, M.S. or Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from accredited university. Aerospace and Civil Engineering degrees are also considered.
Minimum of ten years of related experience with a B.S. degree, relevant M.S. and Doctorate degrees may be credited for up to two and four years of experience respectively.
Proficient in finite element stress analysis, mechanical analysis methods and commercial mechanical stress analysis and dynamic modeling tools with emphasis on ABAQUS or ANSYS.
