Derrick Watkins Presents “Moving Beyond Traditional Tornado Missile Impact Analysis” Paper at Annual ANS Meeting

Wednesday, 6 July 2016

On June 15th, 2016, Tobolski Watkins Engineering, Inc. had the pleasure of presenting a paper on tornado missile impact evaluation at the annual American Nuclear Society Conference in New Orleans, LA. Our unique approach—and first-of-a-kind melding of Finite Element Analysis and Fluid-Structure Interaction before the NRC—was explained to a very receptive Nuclear Installation Safety audience.  Participants were eager to hear how we were able to provide additional reassurance of structural robustness and reduce the amount of capital improvement needed to meet regulatory requirements for a nuclear plant in the central US.
