Job Description :

HukariAscendent is a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned, Small Business specializing in comprehensive engineering and technical support services associated with commercial nuclear power and Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear activities.


We are looking for a Seismic & Dynamics Engineer to evaluate the Reactor systems response to various design and operational changes. The Reactor is typically modeled in ANSYS with time-based inputs to predict the response of the system. Evaluations are highly non-linear and support ASME Vessel code analyses. Work scopes are typically controlled by NRC approved or long-standing accepted methodologies, align with ASME code analyses. Evaluation techniques have been automated using scripting and other techniques. All work complies with GE’s quality plan which includes specific verification practices.


Essential Responsibilities

Work scope includes the following essential responsibilities:

  • Perform linear and non-linear dynamic structural evaluation to predict system responses and resulting loads (and other similar analyses) for reactor systems and internals components. Demonstrated understanding of the dynamic response of structures.

  • Creation and evaluation of analysis models using ANSYS and ANSYS APDL as well as other similar numerical simulation codes.

  • Review archive records and evaluate the impact of design/operational changes on the conclusions within those archive records.

  • Ability to provide clear and complete analysis documentation in accordance with GE engineering procedures.

  • Communicate effectively to leadership the status of work activities.

Period of Performance: 18 months

Work Location: Remote

Required Qualifications :

Qualifications / Requirements

  • Mechanical Engineering degree (or equivalent applicable degree)

  • Capable of providing 1st principles approach to define problem and expand into higher order concerns to refine analysis requirements.

  • 5+ year experience performing computer simulated load evaluations.

  • Experience using dynamic simulations to model complex structures.

  • Proficient of working between time and frequency domains.

 Additional Desired Characteristics

  • Project based work assignments with time and schedule constraints for work performed. Engineer needs to be efficient and effective in assignments to meet scope, quality, schedule and cost bases.

HukariAscendent offers an excellent benefits package including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, 401(k) plan, and paid time off.
