I don't know of a person that is looking for this kind of position, but I do know of a commercial code that is suitable for Fluid-Structure Interaction calculations.

CFD-ACE+ by CFD Research Corporation has an add-on module, CFD-FEMSTRESS, that allows you to do coupled fluid-structure interaction calculations. Please see our website at for more information.

(1) Does this commercial code you mentioned has the equivalent capability of a senior engineer to solve nuclear reactor related fluid-structure-interaction problems? (2). If a code can solve those problems, then it would be easier to put the code in the control room and everything will be solved. Why would one still need a code when a senior engineer may have the answer already in his brain?
