Q & A Period
Les Sudak Les Sudak, Ph.D., is a professor at the University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering. His research is centered around the mechanical and mathematical aspects of elastic solids, specifically, the modeling and analysis of interphase layer damage (due to debonding, sliding and cracking) in composite materials and the prediction of stress fields. Les holds a B.Sc. in Mathematics, B.Sc. in Mining Engineering and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
Daniel McArthur Daniel McArthur, Ph.D., is a mechanical engineer with Becht Engineering. He has several years of experience focusing on engineering analysis including performing Design-By-Analysis to ASME Section VIII, Division 2 and 3, and Level 3 Fitness-for-Service to API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. He has a strong background in continuum mechanics, finite element theory, and is knowledgeable in the use of both Abaqus and ANSYS finite element software. Daniel holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Calgary. In addition, he is certified by Dassault Systems, makers of Abaqus, as a structural finite element analyst.
Garret Meijer Garret Meijer, Ph.D., is a Lead Engineer at Noetic Engineering. He has an extensive background in the development and application of non-linear and time-dependent constitutive models for finite element analysis of material systems. His recent efforts have focused on the post-yield mechanical behavior of Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) materials in extreme service applications, and on optimization of steam injection using computer and experimental modeling. Garret has developed advanced non-linear elastic-plastic and visco-elastic constitutive material models and testing tubes under combined axial/differential pressure loads. Garret is also familiar with API/AISC/CISC/ASM/CSA/OHS codes for the design of lifting and rig equipment. Garret Meijer holds a B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
Kael Schryver Kael Schryver is an employee of EngRx Corp. who provide consulting engineering services for industrial applications such as online leak sealing, pressure vessel design and the design of hot tap fittings. Kael has been working for EngRx Corp. for approximately four years where he has developed a strong foundation in the application of Finite Element Analysis. Kael holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
Matthew Allen Matthew Allen has extensive experience in mechanical design and product development involving the use of finite element analysis. He has worked in various roles within the Volant group of companies for over 14 years, including design, testing, support, certification and failure investigation. Matthew has been actively involved in API workgroups related to hoisting equipment. Currently, he supports product engineering and development functions at Volant with a focus on mechanical design. Matthew holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
Hossein Sadeghi Hossein Sadeghi is a Senior Project Engineer at Volant Products Inc. Hossein has more than 18 years of experience in mechanical design, Finite Element Analysis, product development, manufacturing processes, and products verification and validation. His recent focus has been in the Oil and Gas Industry and includes, drilling, artificial lift and well completions. Hossein holds B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Tehran Polytechnic and an M.Eng. degree from the University of Alberta.
