    Summary

    I have over 25 years experience in the aerospace industry (working on spacecraft, aircraft and rotorcraft) covering all aspects of static and dynamic structural design, analysis, and testing.  I have worked at various technical levels from stress engineer/analyst up to stress lead positions; providing preliminary and conceptual stress analyses, through to the preparation of final stress reports.

    I have been involved at every project stage; from conceptual design through to ground and flight testing, certification and in-service support. I am knowledgeable in all aspects of the use of metallic and composites for space and aerospace applications; including the definition of tools and methods, the application of classical hand calculations and linear and non-linear Finite Element (FE) analysis to lightweight structures, and the design and analysis of damage-tolerant structures.  I have expert experience of FE software including NASTRAN, PATRAN, FEMAP, ABAQUS, AUTODESK and HYPERMESH, mechanical design software including CATIA, Office software, MathCad and bespoke software including ISAMI.
