Finite Element Analyst
I am a senior aerospace consultant with 20+ years’ experience and advanced expertise in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of static and dynamic problems for linear and nonlinear structural behaviors. I am the author of "Practical Finite Element Analysis for Mechanical Engineers", a book about the practical aspect of finite element analysis for structural engineers. The objective is to offer the best practical methods and guidelines for the development and validation of finite element models. It gives to the structural engineers the keys to developing accurate and reliable finite element models by avoiding the most frequent errors. It contains around 100 examples which illustrate the different modeling techniques. I conducted detailed finite element analyses for aerospace companies in Europe and in North America (e.g., Airbus, Dassault Aviation, Hispano-Suiza [now Safran], Bell Helicopter Textron Canada, Bombardier Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney Canada, and their subcontractors) on aerospace metallic and composite structures such as fuselages, wings, nacelles, engine pylons, helicopter airframes, and systems. I earn a Master’s degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France.
