    • Nuclear power systems and technology
    • Design modification packages
    • Probabilistic fracture mechanics
    • Programming and simulation

    Mr. Wolfson has over 5 years of experience in the nuclear power sector over a broad range of projects. Since joining DEI in 2018, he has performed probabilistic fracture mechanics simulations, assisted in processing data from computation fluid dynamics modeling projects, and worked to resolve a variety of other industry challenges. He has provided value-adding engineering support for dispositioning difficult-to-inspect cast austenitic stainless-steel piping and nozzles, ultrasonic examiner training and qualification requirements, and assessment of the existing inspection requirements for certain reactor vessel penetrations. Drawing from a background in design modification packages, Mr. Wolfson has also applied his engineering analysis expertise to deliver results in a wide range of technical areas including: design, cost estimation, programming, simulation data processing, inspection requirements, ASME code requirements for personnel qualification, and DEI hardware deployment and operation.

    Mr. Wolfson holds a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering and a Minor in Engineering Mechanics from Pennsylvania State University. Prior to joining DEI, Mr. Wolfson held positions with Enercon Services, Inc. and Tetra Tech Nuclear where he performed design engineering services for commercial nuclear power plants and developed thermal-fluid, radiation dose, and nuclear partial fluence models for both nuclear power and nuclear national defense applications. He also performed undergraduate research at Penn State where he developed a coupled nuclear fuel depletion analysis tool utilizing Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNP) code.
