• Fracture Mechanics studies.
• Ageing of structures and components.
• Analysis and / or design of component (such as pump, valves, supporting structures,…).
• Piping calculation of existing or new structures including the supports.
• Design and calculation of anchorages.
• Seismic analysis of structures and components.
• Walkdown screening and seismic evaluation (SQUG).
• Seismic margin assessment of existing structures and components (SMA, SPSA).


• You manage the various aspects of structural integrity of mechanical components related to ASME Section III code for the construction/operation of existing or new Nuclear power plants.
− You supervise all the calculations of the ASME III mechanical and piping components and including Class 1, 2&3 components
− You use and guide the other colleagues in Finite-Elements Studies (SYSTUS, ANSYS or / and PIPESTRESS code) for thermal and pressure fatigue evaluation of mechanical and piping components with respect to ASME code
− You are familiar with the use of the ASME III code and able to lead other colleagues in its application
− You are aware of all the different analysis : mechanical, thermal and pressure transients applicable to all Class 1 mechanical and piping components of each belgian nuclear units
• You help our Client to safely restart their nuclear units through fast and judicious justification for continuation in case of alteration of the structural integrity of an ASME component
• You take charge of the invitation to tender, the technical and economical comparison between bids; the awarding of contracts, the review of external studies
• You conduct the technical and commercial follow up of the contracts, including interfaces management
• You write component technical specifications (performances, scope of supply and limits of supply definition , design requirements, applicable ASME III criteria to meet).


• You have several years of experience in stress and fatigue analysis of pressure vessels (piping, pumps, tanks, heat exchangers,..)
• You are experienced in general purpose Finite Element (FE) codes such as PipeStress, Beamstress, Ansys, Systus, … for piping applications
• You have a good knowledge of the mechanical properties of different steels and alloy steels used in this topic
• You have several years of experience in application of pressure vessel codes such as ASME III, ASME VIII, RCC-M, CODAP, DIN, KTA, ...
• You are experienced in thermal fatigue (elastic or plastic) structural analysis and evaluation of the heat transfer coefficients in water, in steam, ...
• You are experienced to evaluate by FE calculation stresses for static loads or dynamic loads, in case of linear or non-linear analysis
• Knowledge of nuclear domain and safety is considered as an asset
• You are interested to become a high-level expert in this topic
