We perform design and analysis of components in elevated temperature and cryogenic conditions to determine structural integrity of aerospace components. We also perform structural dynamic analyses to predict loads and responses to environments including transient, random, and acoustic excitation.
Our 45+ years of experience has included the safety evaluation of complex hardware under repeated dynamic loads, including cracking during aircraft hard landings and qualification testing conditions. Our work has included dynamic catapult and landing loads on aircraft carriers, the Space Shuttle main engines and other aerospace hardware. Our work also includes providing expert forensic testimony on structural failures and fire/explosions.
We were asked to perform a dynamic analysis of the Hubble Space Telescope. We determined that vibrations were induced due to a fourth order function of the transverse ligaments in the base structure.

Learn from the experience of others. Especially when one such “other” is Dr. William O’Donnell, PhD, PE, Founder and President of O’Donnell Consulting Engineers, Inc., and ASME “Engineer of the Year” – his 50 years of experience in analysis of components including fatigue and fracture safety evaluations and failure analyses are now comprised in this volume.
If you are interested learning more in Engineering Design, Manufacturing and Construction, as well as Failure Analysis, then this book is a must have!
