Member, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
Eric Jones 10 years’ experience with Structural Integrity Associates, Inc. includes analytical responsibilities including the creation and assessment of finite element models to evaluate stresses in high energy power plant piping as well as creation and assessment of 3-dimensional models of headers and other power plant components.
He is currently manager of the project engineering team of the Fossil business, with responsibility for all aspects of lifecycle management program implementation and associated condition assessment projects. Eric routinely consults with clients on life management challenges such as aged seam-welded piping systems, creep strength enhanced ferritic steels, and disposition of anomalous hanger readings in piping systems, as well as executing condition assessments for piping and headers.
General competencies include familiarity with high temperature and pressure damage mechanisms, typical power plant materials such as Carbon steels and high Chrome steels such as P11, P22, and P91, general and ultrasonic inspection techniques, and finite element stress analysis concepts and applications.
