- Applying and developing advanced mathematical theories to perform computer-aided engineering simulations using Abaqus software for performing safety assessments on equipment for industrial applications in the refining and petrochemical industries, including problems in nonlinear stress analysis, fracture mechanics, fatigue evaluation, creep, creep-fatigue, corrosion modeling, fluid-structure interaction, blast modeling, high temperature hydrogen attack, hydrogen embrittlement, microstructural modeling and numerical welding simulations;
- Researching and designing mathematical or statistical models to analyze material behavior (cyclic plasticity, viscoplasticity, thermal boundary conditions, etc.) for safety and failure rates of equipment and systems for the refining and petrochemical industries;
- Developing Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software for solving nonlinear mathematical problems for engineering design, including simulation of residual stresses due to welding, corrosion and continuum damage.
- Travel in the U.S. and Canada required two times a year for 3-6 days each trip.
