OBJECTIVE

RESPONSIBLE MECHANICAL ENGINEER IN PROCESS / PETRO-CHEMICAL PIPING

EDUCATION

Diploma in Computer Programming - Chubb Institute, Parsippany, NJ.- 1994

Professional Engineering Degree in Industrial Eng.- Columbia University, NY- 1979

Master of Mechanical Engineering Degree - City Univ. of New York, NY – 1973

Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering – Jadavpur University, Calcutta, India – 1971

Engineering responsibility and various technical activities range over 30 years in the field of Piping. Conceptual piping design, engineering analysis and final report preparation of piping systems for new and existing power and process plants. Worked on special research and development projects which included upgrading piping during Plant Renovation and Shutdown.

Performed Pipe Stress Analyses using PIPESTRESS, ME101, CAESAR II programs and many other commercial piping software in accordance with ANSI B31.1, B31.3 and ASME Section III B&PV Codes. Interfaced with piping designers and PDMS operators at Front End Loading and Production Design phase to resolve piping and support related issues and recommend modifications in conformance with applicable design specification.

Analyzed Large Bore, Small Bore, Instrumentation and Process Piping for Weight, Thermal Expansion and Seismic Excitation for As-designed and As-built piping in accordance with Project guide and specifications.

Familiar with AUTOPIPE program. Converted input dataset in AUTOPIPE to CAESAR II dataset to meet client’s requirement to stress analyze all piping using in-house software.

Executed GTSTRUDL to perform Structural Frame Analysis, Base Plate Analysis, Weld and various detailed Pipe Support calculations as per AISC manual, Welded Structures and in-house specification.

Executed Lug & Trunnion analysis to check for additional local stresses to meet stipulated code requirements and in-house criteria. Check all catalog items like Snubbers and Springs, U-bolts and Clamps, Straps and Hangers, Struts and Pads, Welds and Steel Attachments for proper function and adequate strength.

Applied Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS to investigate various local joints for local stresses on cylindrical shell elements. Performed Thermal Transient and Failure Analysis on Orthotropic Heat Transfer problems using in-house software.

Executed FEPIPE/NOZPRO Finite Element Analyses to check local area of nozzles and pressure vessels for maximum stress and met Code requirements and Fitness for Service

criteria.

Analyzed open and closed Safety Relief Valve piping for pressurized system protection. Calculated safety relief valve activation force and its impact on the discharge piping for open and closed piping systems and recommended solution including additional supports.

Prepared FCR and developed Design Change Packages as Lead Responsible Engineer. Wrote Analysis Reports and replied NRC queries. Checked Extended Power Uprate stress analysis reports subjected to in-house QA as well as client review.

Qualified Pump, Turbine and similar Equipment and met their Nozzle Load Requirements and interfaced with vendor for acceptance. Met nozzle load limits or design changes recommended. Expansion joints and Flex hose connections have been qualified to meet vendor’s limits.

Troubleshoot repetitive piping system failure with long-term trouble-free solution.

Performed comparative study during Hot-function test at Plant site. Collected HFT results and compared with As-designed data for meaningful resolution of system behavior. Recommend corrective measures to resolve the differences in order to release the system under review.

Performed field walk downs to gather information, identify the cause of malfunction, prepared engineering operability report to continue extent of operation under degraded or imperfect condition until permanent solution is derived.

Provided detailed piping and pipe support modifications for Earthquake ravaged process plant to restart to Plant operation amidst after- shocks and subsequent tremors.

Executed closure activities after installation of permanent modifications. Scrutinized contractor’s submittal as per corporate procedure for acceptance into permanent records.

Modified piping systems to eliminate labor intensive hot bolt/unbolt requirements in hurricane torn Dacron Plant to run trouble-free without further interruption.

Led a group of engineers from home office to work at site trailers to provide on-the-spot resolution and subsequent concurrence with the client engineers.

Interfaced with Project Engineering Group to prepare technical procedures to review and reconcile piping and support calculations in accordance with IE Bulletin 79-02/14.
