Bryan Templeton is a Senior Metallurgical/Materials Engineer specializing in failure analysis, fractographic examination, fracture mechanics, engineering analysis, corrosion engineering and design review. He has an advanced academic and theoretical background, combined with extensive metals production and quality control experience in manufacturing environments. Dr. Templeton's varied work experience includes failure analysis, pipeline metallurgy, corrosion analysis, welding failures and probabilistic leak rate predictions for both buried and above ground piping systems. His work also include high-temperature damage analysis of steelmaking components, fundamental research into mitigation techniques to prevent primary water stress corrosion cracking in alloy 600 components, pressure-temperature curve development for nuclear reactors, development of alternative cool-down curves for nuclear reactor vessel shutdown procedures, failure analysis of off-shore oil rig components, failure analysis of medical devices, analysis of industrial and domestic HVAC and plumbing systems, and analysis of large structure and industrial equipment failures and fracture mechanics.
