Justin Coleman is a licensed professional engineer
and a seismic/structural engineering group lead at Idaho National
Laboratory (INL) with a master's degree in engineering structures and
mechanics. Mr. Coleman's background is in seismic analysis and spent
fuel cask and canister impact analysis with over 12 years of
experience. Much of the impact analysis work is performed using
Explicit Finite Element Analysis (FEA) codes. He has performed linear
and nonlinear seismic soil-structure interaction (SSI) analysis. He
has also performed nonlinear time domain collapse analysis of nuclear
structures to determine margin to failure and necessary mitigation to
prevent collapse. His research interests are broad, and include
nonlinear seismic SSI analysis, seismic protective systems, spent fuel
transportation and storage, and beyond design basis threats to nuclear
Mr. Coleman serves on the ASCE 4, "Seismic Analysis
of Safety-Related Nuclear Structures and Commentary" where he is the
lead of Chapter 3, "Modeling of Structures," and led the effort to
author Appendix B, "Nonlinear Time Domain Soil-Structure Interaction
Analysis," in the forthcoming ASCE 4. He also serves on ASCE 43,
"Seismic Design Criteria for Structures, Systems, and Components in
Nuclear Facilities," where he is the lead of Chapter 3, "Evaluation of
Seismic Demand". Mr. Coleman has authored numerous reports on impact
analysis of spent fuel casks and nuclear fuel, and seismic analysis.
Andrew began his academic studies focusing on structural engineering while studying at Michigan Tech University (B.S.) and Washington State University (M.S.). He shifted focus for a Ph.D. at Montana State University where he studied Applied Engineering Mechanics and researched snow and avalanche physics. This worked included extensive field, laboratory, and computational research and paved the way for him being awarded a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship at Cornell University in 2011, where he focused on developing a phase-tracking snow microstructure model. In 2013, Andrew joined INL and the MOOSE team, adding to the wide spectrum of research expertise of the team.

Robert started work at the INL in January 1991. Most
of his career has been spent working with linear and nonlinear finite
element analysis. Early in his career, his work was primarily in
structure design and analysis. In the middle of his career, his work
was primarily elastic/plastic evaluation of accidents involving impact.
More recently, his work has been primarily linear and nonlinear
soil-structure analysis. He joined the Seismic Research Group in
September 2013. He has a Bachelor's degree from Oregon State University
in Mechanical Engineering and Masters and Ph.D. degrees from the
University of Idaho in Mechanical Engineering.

Will joined the Seismic Research Group in September of 2016. He began working at INL as an intern in the Fuel Modeling and Simulation department during the summer of 2012. Since then, he has worked closely with the INL during additional internships and research efforts. In his past experience with the lab, Will has performed transient analyses of irradiated reactor pressure vessels using the INL's Grizzly code, a MOOSE based application. His Master's research focused on the development of reduced order models to simulate probabilistic fracture mechanics. He holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Idaho.
