This page was up to date at ~ year 2000.
As of Jan. 2007 I am not in looking for new work.
The only new project I could be interesed in at this time
is one dealing with licensing of radioactive materials packaging.

Dr. Turula has 36 years of national laboratory, industry, and university experience in: Since 1985 his primary activity has been the evaluation of radioactive material transportation packagings to assess their safety and compliance with applicable national and international regulations, in a technical advisory function to the US Department of Energy (DOE). He has also been instrumental in the development of the ASME packaging rules and the relevant ANSI N14 transportation standards. His special expertise is in structural systems and stress analysis, and the dynamic response of packaging structures. He is regarded for his rational approach to complex structural response assessment problems and has gained the respect of both the DOE and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff working in the radioactive material packaging field.

Professional Experience:

Research and Development Project Management

Structural Analysis, Design and Evaluation Development and Implementation of Computer Codes

Work History


Other professional training on advances in structural analysis, ASME code rules, shipping container certification, project management, quality systems, etc.


Author of about 60 publications on structural analysis and design, radioactive materials packaging, and related computer applications. Click to see the publication list, a recent abstract, or a recent paper.
