Karl Spooner is an associate engineer at ENGVT, where he models mechanical pipe and plumbing systems and supports other members of the project team.
Karl holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University. While there, he was the team leader for senior design project to create a dynamic model of a Generation 4 Nuclear Lead-Cooled Fast Reactor. The team used COMSOL Multiphysics Modeling Software and obtain data relating to the function of the reactor and successfully designed a shell which promoted free convection of the heat transfer medium. Karl also worked to repair a Varestraint hot ductility testing machine. This multi-discipline project required practical knowledge of motors, hydraulics and welding and the machine was returned to a working state to test hot cracking susceptibility of different metals.
Karl is proficient in MATLAB, Labview, Solidworks, AutoCAD, MEP and fabrication and has a basic understanding of MIG, TIG and arc welding.
