Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, April 13, 2018

WJE is pleased to welcome Melanie Sarzynski and Scott Bouse to the firm’s metallurgy and applied mechanics group as senior associates.

Dr. Sarzynski comes to WJE from Stress Engineering Services Inc., where she worked for more than ten years as a senior associate, leading a wide variety of engineering design and development projects in both upstream and downstream oil and gas segments. She brings to WJE extensive experience in solid mechanics analyses, including evaluation of various failure modes to support design and fitness for service (FFS) assessments. Her specialization in advanced finite element analysis, fatigue evaluation, and fracture mechanics assessment has led to frequent consulting on the design and analysis of a variety of components, design and certification of pressure vessels for high pressure applications, and strength and fatigue verification of high pressure high temperature (HPHT) oil field equipment.

She is a licensed professional engineer in Texas and Wyoming and holds a bachelor of science, master of science, and doctorate in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University.

Mr. Bouse also previously worked at Stress Engineering Services Inc., where he accumulated a decade of experience providing advanced analytical and modeling engineering services to the refining, petrochemical, and exploration industry. He has particular expertise in finite element analysis, route cause failure analysis, laboratory and field application of high-temperature strain gages, and high-temperature hydrogen attack screenings.

He holds a bachelor of science in biomedical engineering and master of science in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University.

WJE’s metallurgy and applied mechanics group is focused on further developing engineering solutions to help companies solve and avoid problems in the oil and gas market as well as other process and industrial markets.
