Request Expert

Since 1963, Expert' work expertise has been concentrated on flow-induced vibration analysis, first in industry, and then in academic research. The special problems he studied were related to the energy-generation industries (including nuclear), heat exchangers, and offshore technology.

Expert studied piping system vibration as part of his PhD research and has since continued to work in this area. He has worked on problems involving stability and vibration of piping systems including random vibration of pipes and shells due to turbulence.

The study of vibration has been the backbone of Expert' training in undergraduate and graduate studies. It is from this general area that he has focused on his specialties of flow-induced and piping system vibration.
