Mr. Sharma has over 30 years of experience working on hundreds of matters requiring comprehensive design analysis and testing using advanced analytical methods. He applies this broad-based experience in mechanical engineering, to analyze components and investigate failures of mechanical and process piping systems, and to develop condition monitoring programs to enhance safety, integrity, and reliability. He has investigated systems and/or products at various stages of their life cycles, such as: selection, specification, design, manufacturing, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, inspection, maintenance, and decommissioning. Through his work in the nuclear and energy industries he has developed an especial expertise with valves and other industrial process equipment.
He has extensive hands-on experience working on process hardware and is intimately familiar with application of valves, pumps, compressors, turbines, steam boilers, heat exchangers, tanks, filters, flanges, gasketed joints, and instrumentations and controls systems. He has also provided assessments relating to product liability, product recall, construction delay, intellectual property claims, as well as, technology assessment, and business process improvements.
He is a Certified Functional Safety Expert (CFSE) for safety lifecycle per IEC 61511 (process) and has facilitated numerous process hazard analyses (PHA), Hazard Identification (HAZID), Hazard and Operability (HAZOP), Job Hazard Analysis (JHA), failure-modes-and-system-affects (FMEA), Pre-Start up Safety Review (PSSR) evaluations for FPSOs, LNG plants and gas transmission and distribution systems. Mr. Sharma currently serves as a member of ASME Codes and Standards VVUQ 60 subcommittee on Verification and Validation of Computer Modeling in Energy Systems and is a former Chair and Vice Chair of this group.
