Mr. Harrison primarily performs Finite Element Modeling (FEM) and Analysis (FEA) of complex structures, and he has over a decade of engineering experience in many different areas such as EO/IR signatures, Mechanical Design, Random Vibration Analysis, Vibroacoustic Analysis, Noise Reduction Analysis, Experimental Modal Analysis, and Stress Analysis. He supported AMRDEC’s Weapons Development and Integration (WDI) with analytical and experimental structural dynamic analyses such as FE modeling, experimental modal analysis, and shaker table testing. He also supported the NASA Space Launch System (SLS) program as a vibroacoustic and acoustic engineer for the Launch Vehicle Stage Adapter (LVSA) and the Payload Attach Fitting (PAF) for the Block 1 and Block 1B vehicles. Currently, Mr. Harrison supports Army programs through structural substantiation of flight hardware for Airworthiness Qualification.
