providing mechanical engineering services.
heat balance application for systems modeling of mechanical systems
(heat balances, network flow analysis).
Used Pro-E. to
develop and release to manufacturing several fatigue testing rigs for
local product design company. Fatigue testing was part of a failure
analysis on some product critical drive parts.
steam lines serving papermill near Syracuse, NY. Work included main
steam supply to desuperheating stations and back pressure turbine.
Pressure drop calculations, network analysis and pipe stress analysis
automation nest for local semiconductor wafer testing machinery company.
Designed tail gas
process piping for local test lab processing carbon black. Performed
heat loss, pressure drop and pipe stress calculations. Helped manage
release of print package for construction and PE stamp.
balance model for cost analysis and design point selection of local
co-generation project using gas turbine and heat recovery steam
generator to supply heat of evaporation to LNG operation.

Rapid system to estimate plant and equipment purchase, installation and
documentation of “Doser” product for local asthma product company.
balance model to predict the value of new Fisonic feed water heater
system to Astoria Power Station. For same project also performed pipe
layout, pipe stress, costing and supplier quote management.
stress and alternate routing design for temporary steam pipes in
Atlantic Avenue for The Big Dig.
