Overview:

Dr. Stenta joined E2G’s Applied Research and Development Business Unit in May 2015 as a Senior Researcher.  As a member of this business unit, his focus is on researching, developing, and advancing current and emerging technologies and software products, improved consulting services, and revised industry codes and standards.

 

Dr. Stenta has played a key role in the development of the new Part 14 of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 and an in-depth supporting bulletin (WRC 550) on the standardization fatigue methods for use in the pressure vessels and piping industries.  With recent advancement in computational efficiency, this work takes an algorithmic approach to presenting, demonstrating, and validating these procedures.  Additionally, Dr. Stenta is working with the team on the development of modern computational methods for the delivery of the companies advanced software and technology through web deployment services.

 

While at The University of Akron, Dr. Stenta had the opportunity to collaborate, through research, with various government and industry affairs, such as the Department of Defense, Aerospace, Automotive, and Oil and Gas.  These opportunities have provided him with the experiences and breadth of knowledge required to promote the rapid growth and diversification of the Applied Research and Development Unit.  Dr. Stenta is also in the process of incorporating the corrosion modeling algorithms that he developed while at The University of Akron, into advanced decision-making tools for the company’s internal and external corrosion applications of interest.
