Over 30 years of engineering experience in the design and construction of oil and gas pipeline and related facilities. Major discipline is complicated stress analyses. Development of stress analyses software and design criteria for onshore and offshore pipelines. Experience includes the front-end and detail design of onshore transmission pipelines, offshore pipelines and risers, pipeline crossings, compressor and pump station piping, and mechanisms of pipeline failures. Specific project assignments have included site visits, fields data gathering, design and design supervision, structural and mechanical design, specification preparation, bid evaluations, and field construction technical supervision.


- On-bottom stability (buoyancy control) of pipeline elastic sidebends. Developed the new calculation method for concrete thickness/weight of elastic sidebends sections of offshore pipeline. This method used the existing codes, and takes into consideration the friction force between the elastic sidebends and soil. Using the new method improved the stability and reliability of an offshore pipeline. (Offshore 7, 1998)

- Wall thickness of high pressure (up to 5500 psig) and high temperature (HP/HT) pipeline. Developed a precise numerical method to be used in determination of stresses and strains on HP/HT offshore pipeline. This method allows adjustments for the nonlinear property of pipe material. It also properly handles essential radial and hoop stresses using specific stress distributions across the pipe wall. An iterative computer program was developed. The beneficial effect of this new method is up to 15% reduction in piping material cost. (O&GJ 06-22-98)

- Effect of concrete coating on pipe collapse pressure. Developed a new numerical method for determining the stiffness of composite steel-concrete wall, as well as for calculation of stresses and pipe ovality resulting from external pressure. This solution builds on the classical theory of material strength, principles and methodology of existing codes, and adjusts for the nonlinear property of concrete. This new method allows a substantial increase in the allowable water depth or a significant reduction in the steel thickness to withstand external pressure. (O&GJ 10-27-97)
