Shawn Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng.
I joined the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science in Jan. 2007 as an assistant professor. I am a faculty member in the civil engineering discipline and I am actively involved with the offshore oil and gas engineering (OOGE) program.
My technical areas of expertise include Arctic and offshore environmental loads, onshore and offshore pipeline engineering, computational mechanics, finite element methods, structural stability, post-buckling, limit states design, risk analysis, structural dynamics and impact engineering.
I am a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS), Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE), Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador (PEGNL), Professional Institute of Pipeline Engineers (PIPE) and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
I am an associate editor of the ASME Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology (ASME JPVT) and a member of the Editorial Board for the Journal of Pipeline Engineering. I serve as an executive committee member on the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z662 Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems. Through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), I serve as a committee member on the Canadian Advisory Committee for International Organization for Standardization (ISO) TC 67/SC 2 - Pipeline Transportation Systems. I am chair of the ASME PSD Codes and Standards committee and the CSA Z662 Offshore Steel Pipelines committee. I also serve as a technical committee member for the ASME PSD Offshore Pipelines and Risk and Reliability committees, and the CSA Z662 Design committee.
