    • PWR and BWR primary chemistry
    • ALARA and source term reduction studies
    • Ultrasonic fuel cleaning
    • Cavity decontamination and advanced coatings

    Dr. Dingee is an expert in water chemistry, radiation protection and source term management at nuclear power plants. He has provided consulting to nuclear utilities to optimize chemistry practices such as resin selection and shutdown chemistry practices in order to minimize plant dose rates and improve outage schedule and performance. He has also supported DEI’s ultrasonic fuel cleaning activities and delivery and use of DEI’s patented AMFM filtration systems through the provision of on-site support, as well as technical consulting to evaluate the impact of these activities on chemistry, radiological and fuel performance and radwaste economics.

    As a Senior Engineer, Dr. Dingee has participated in numerous EPRI R&D programs and consulted to nuclear utilities in a wide range of areas including: zinc addition, crud and corrosion product transport, primary-to-secondary leakage, chemistry excursions, cavity decontamination, and advanced coatings applications. Work activities within these areas have included phenomenological model development (e.g., equilibrium thermodynamics, chemical and physical kinetics, etc.), industry assessments (e.g., chemistry practices, technology applications, etc.), and laboratory studies (e.g., examination of failed stator bars, evaluations of zinc pretreatment methods, etc.).

    Dr. Dingee has also helped develop and manage a number of custom software products at DEI, including project plan development, risk management, requirements and design, writing source code, test planning and execution, and maintenance. In particular, Dr. Dingee has been the technical lead and author of multiple software requirements specification (SRS) and software design description (SDD) documents under DEI’s Nuclear QA program, which meets Subpart 2.7 of NQA-1 for software development. Dr. Dingee has also developed source code and documentation for validating hydrogen detonation and deflagration results using NASA’s Chemical Equilibrium with Applications (CEA) software.

    Dr. Dingee graduate research focused on the development of mechanistic models for enzyme kinetics. He holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University.
