ODonnell Consulting

Our Engineering Team

O'Donnell Consulting Engineers, Inc. was originally founded to meet the specialized needs of the nuclear industry. We have since expanded to offer engineering design, analysis, troubleshooting and forensic services to clients throughout the world in such diverse industries as energy, petrochemical, metals, fabrication, construction, marine, mining, and aerospace. We enjoy technical challenges - from the simple to complex.

Our team here at O’Donnell Consulting provides engineering design, analysis and troubleshooting services to Engineering Codes including AWS, API and ASME.

While most problems presented to us are unique and challenging – they likely require solutions involving a team effort of various expertise in materials/ metallurgy, stress analysis and finite element analysis.

The links to individual engineers are resume summaries. Please contact us for more information.
