    Work Experience (Last 10 years):

    - Analytical Mechanics Associates

    Hampton (NASA Langley Research Center), VA US

    05/2012 – 02/2019

    Hours per week: 40

    Engineer Supervisor

    Responsibilities include: Develop finite element models of metallic and composite structures. Conduct linear and nonlinear finite element analyses to investigate global as well as local static, dynamic, aeroelastic, thermal, stability and damage tolerance issues. Perform analyses to determine the buckling and postbuckling behavior of various shell-type structures. Provide recommendations for design modifications and conduct analyses of design improvements. Communicate results in written (formal as well as informal) and oral reports. Contributed to the

    NASA Shell Buckling Knockdown Factor (SBKF) Project on doing applied research within a Cooperative Agreement with Boeing on fluted-core composite structures; also contributed to the modeling and buckling analysis of the Space Launch System (SLS) core stage. Contributed to the Generation Orbit Launcher 1 (GO) Project on designing, modeling, and analyzing a liquid oxygen propellant tank using carbon-based laminates and load path tailoring resulting in significant weight savings. Produced many Patran, NASTRAN and ABAQUS models for both linear and nonlinear analyses; some used to obtain prediction of carbon-based composite test article responses and critical load under instability (buckling related) conditions that were noted for its accuracy when compared with later actual test measurements.

    - Lockheed Martin Corporation

    Hampton (NASA Langley Research Center), VA US

    08/2008 – 04/2012

    Hours per week: 40

    Aeronautical Structural Engineer L4

    Responsibilities included: Develop finite element models of metallic and composite structures. Conduct linear and nonlinear finite element analyses to investigate global as well as local static, dynamic, aeroelastic, thermal, stability and damage tolerance issues. Perform analyses to determine the buckling and postbuckling behavior of various shell-type structures. Provide recommendations for design modifications and conduct analyses of design improvements. Communicate results in written (formal as well as informal) and oral reports. Formally rated at Lockheed Martin as Exceptional Contributor (best rate attainable). Received a Lockheed Martin Award for Outstanding Contribution in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Contributed on various NASA projects: Shell Buckling Knockdown Factor (SBKF) Project (primarily for the Aries and later the SLS but also on research within a Cooperative Agreement with Boeing on fluted-core composite structures); Efficient Strut Design and Analysis (primarily for the Altair Lunar Lander); PSA Egg-Crate Design and Analysis for the Orion Service Module, prioritizing Load Path and Structural Stability. Produced many Patran/NASTRAN and ABAQUS models for both linear and nonlinear analyses; some used to obtain prediction of carbon-based composite test article responses and critical load under instability (buckling related) conditions that were noted for its accuracy when compared with later actual test measurements. Used classical hand analysis methods to plan and evaluate FEA analysis and structural stability for varied load paths.  Acquired a reputation in NASA Langley Research Center as a "reliable, knowledgeable, skilled, hard working contributor in many areas of expertise" (as reported in Lockheed-Martin performance assessment). Developed an innovative methodology for the analysis of flute-core composite aerospace structures that “achieved extraordinary success predicting experimental buckling and failure loads and patterns with an accuracy and detail unheard of previously" (also reported in Lockheed-Martin performance assessment). Asked to transfer this fluted-core technology, provide expertise and advice to a group on another NASA Center (Goddard Space Flight Center). Developed an innovative technology for the analysis of aerospace structures that produces large shell-element models with parametrically-optimized properties approaching the mechanical behavior of detailed, solid-element based submodels; this technique is applicable to either metallic or composite structures offering greater safety and cost reductions.
