I’m a specialist safety / reliability engineer servicing clients throughout Europe. From Scotland but mostly operating out of Munich with an occasional presence in Edinburgh, where I serve a number of clients on a freelance/consultant basis.

Projekt‐ & Berufserfahrung

Safety & reliability consultant
Rolls-Royce Aerospace, München
1/2014 – 12/2014 (1 Jahr)

1/2014 – 12/2014


My third opportunity to provide services to Rolls Royce over the years. This particular project concerns the introduction of Lean Burn technology to existing and future Rolls Royce aero engines. The aim of the technology is to improve the environmental profile of the engines by ensuring fewer hydrocarbons are emitted as a result of combustion. This is a research project in the early stages of development with first test flights set to begin within the next 6-12 months, it has therefore been exciting to see the output of my work influence changes in design.
Specifically my job has been to understand the safety & reliability constraints from introducing a newly developed Flow Scheduling Valve that will control the manner in which fuel is burnt. Several milestones were agreed to develop this understanding, which included an Event Tree, a Functional Hazard Assessment, a Deterministic failure rate prediction, and FMECA.

Reliability consultant
ALSTOM Transport Deutschland GmbH, München
1/2014 – 6/2014 (6 Monate)

1/2014 – 6/2014


My second opportunity to provide services to Alstom Transport. Previously my services were retained for a Swedish project to ensure Whole Life Costs were satisfied from the analytical perspective. Specifically the activities were relating to the implementation of EN 50126 and IEC 60812.
This scope of work is largely consultation based. My duties have been to facilitate key stakeholders both internal and external to Alstom Transport with the correct implementation of RAMS activities as described in the standards mentioned above.

Composite material production

1/2013 – 12/2013


FACC are a high technology company who specialise in the development and production of primary and secondary aircraft components made of composite materials. Their lightweight solutions have seen them become the preferred supplier of many aircraft manufacturers, including winglets for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
From earlier work delivered to my client it became clear to them the data used for composite failure rate prediction and the impact to whole life cost shared a telling relationship. That is the quality of data used was proportional to up front capital expenditure and through-life maintenance costs.
The paper discussed three approaches to gathering data for the stochastic process known as Weibull analysis. Discussion also included the time & cost of procurement of for each approach and the accuracy that would be achieved. The data gathered would then be used for a ‘physics of failure’ model such as the Arrhenius function, which describes the chemical process as a function of temperature.
