Overview:

Dr. Stenta joined the Applied Research & Development Business Unit at E2G | The Equity Engineering Group, Inc. in May 2015 as a Senior Researcher.  As a member of this business unit, his focus is on researching, developing, and advancing current and emerging technologies and software products, improved consulting services, and revised industry standards.

Dr. Stenta has played a key role in the development of the new Part 14 of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 and an in-depth supporting bulletin (WRC 550) on the standardization fatigue methods for use in the pressure vessels and piping industries.  With recent advancement in computational efficiency, this work takes an algorithmic approach to presenting, demonstrating, and validating these procedures.  Additionally, Dr. Stenta is working with the team on the development of modern computational methods for the delivery of the companies advanced software and technology through E2G’s web-based platform: The Equity Engineering Cloud.

While at The University of Akron, Dr. Stenta had the opportunity to collaborate, through research, with various government and industry affairs, such as the Department of Defense, Aerospace, Automotive, and Oil and Gas.  Dr. Stenta is in the process of incorporating the corrosion modeling algorithms that he developed while at The University of Akron into advanced decision-making tools for the company’s internal and external corrosion applications of interest.
