Advanced Engineering Analysis
Dr. Dedhia’s areas of expertise include fracture mechanics, both deterministic and probabilistic, statistical data analysis, development of engineering software and providing training.
Since joining SI in 2007, Dr. Dedhia has been involved in fracture mechanics analysis and the development of pc-CRACK software. His current work includes the development of beyond-PRAISE, a PFM software for nuclear piping. He is also a key contributor to the NRC-EPRI xLPR project. Dr. Dedhia has developed statistically based inspection plans, databases for pressure vessel fracture toughness data and statistical methodology for large volume of thickness measurement data. He has also developed in-house software for fitting probability distributions to data and plotting.
