Role description

  • Manage the various aspects of structural integrity of mechanical components related to both RCC-M and ASME Section III Codes for the construction/operation of existing or new nuclear power plants.
    • carry out all the calculations of the RCC-M and ASME mechanical and piping components (piping lines and supporting systems) and including Class 1, 2&3 components
    • conduct (and guide the other colleagues if necessary) Finite-Elements Studies for thermal and pressure fatigue evaluation of mechanical and piping components with respect to RCC-M and ASME Codes
    • familiar with the use of the RCC-M and ASME Section III Codes and able to lead other colleagues in its application
    • aware of all the different analyses : mechanical, thermal and pressure transients applicable to all Class 1 mechanical and piping components of nuclear units
  • Help the Client to safely restart their nuclear units through fast and judicious justification for continuation in case of alteration of the structural integrity of an RCC-M (or ASME) component
  • Take charge of the invitation to tender, the technical and economical comparison between bids; the awarding of contracts, the review of external studies
  • Conduct the technical and commercial follow up of the contracts, including interfaces management
  • Write component technical specifications (performances, scope of supply and limits of supply definition ,design requirements, applicable criteria to meet)

Knowledge, Experience and Skills

  • Mechanical or Civil Engineer with several years of experience in structural analysis and design
  • Be familiar with international codes and standards (Eurocodes, RCC-M Code, ASME Code)
  • Able to predict the response of structures under static and dynamic loading
  • Be experienced in general purpose Finite Element and structural software (such as PIPESTRESS, BEAMSTRESS, ANSYS, SYSTUS…) for static loads or dynamic loads, in case of linear or non-linear analysis
  • Background in structural assessment of French nuclear components and piping is an asset
  • Knowledge of nuclear domain and safety is considered as an asset
  • Be able to communicate in French and English or Dutch
  • Be able to coordinate different technical expertises

Essential skills

At least 5 years’of experience in structural analysis and design
