The Fleet Reactor Mechanical subdivision includes an interesting mix of short and long term projects that support the operating Fleet and ongoing reactor equipment construction. The Reactor Heavy Equipment Engineering (RHEE) work unit is primarily responsible for submarine reactor heavy equipment analysis, involving complex thermal and structural analysis techniques that use finite element methods. Bolted joint and piping analysis techniques are also applied. Small work teams with a strong mentoring presence are working on design basis studies that span a wide variety of material failure modes, and also provide an opportunity to learn a lot about reactor plant capabilities. Emergent manufacturing or fleet issues offer unique opportunities to apply pragmatic engineering techniques to shorter term problems.
