Primary Responsibilities:

Under the supervision of a Lead Project Engineer, conduct finite element analysis for complex nuclear facilities. Responsibilities include:

  • Developing finite element models and postprocessing of the analysis results through automation and data reduction
  • Conducting building and foundation soil-structure interaction analysis in time and/or frequency domain
  • Preparing engineering calculations, reports and presentations for clients
  • Performing design checks of structural components for compliance with codes and standards
  • Reviewing drawings to extract design inputs
  • Developing conceptual drawings and sketches
  • Assisting in project delivery, task management, project management, business development, and proposal developments
