Jay M Vincelli, M.Sc, is an experienced multi-discipline engineer specializing in computational analysis of biomechanical implants and aviation components, fracture analysis, and chemical and metallurgical analysis of steel, aluminum, titanium and nickel-based alloys. He is actively involved in engineering analysis, design, product development and research. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Materials Science & Engineering from the University of Florida and his Master of Science in Engineering Sciences from Dartmouth College, where he developed a computational method for quantifying wear in metal-on-metal hip retrievals and analyzed over 500 failed hip components. He has filed for a provisional patent covering a miniaturized cardiopulmonary bypass circuit for transgenic mouse testing. He is the author of a peer reviewed publication on a study of laser cleaning and pulsed gas tungsten arc welding of titanium alloy tubes. His collaborative work has been published with investigators at the University of Virginia Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center in Cherry Point, NC.

Forensic Engineering Consultant, Materials Science Associates, LLC, North Kingstown, RI (June 2013-Present). Biomedical engineering, metallurgical, materials science & mechanical engineering consulting services for government, hospital, legal, insurance, medical, and manufacturing needs. Performs failure analysis, materials and process evaluations, biomaterial and medical implant design and testing, professional reports, oral presentations and expert opinions.

Engineering Researcher, Dartmouth Biomedical Engineering Center, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH (September 2011 – June 2013). Performed failure analysis on hip and knee implants. Developed numerical methods for quantifying wear in metal-on-metal hip retrievals. Developed numerical methods for quantifying the pore spacing in plasma-sprayed titanium coatings. Evaluated enzymatic degradation of OrthoSpace’s rotator cuff balloon, which consisted of a polycaprolactone (PCL) and polylactic acid (PLA) polymer using FTIR, DSC, visco-elastic analysis and tensile testing to aid regulatory clearance.

Product Engineer and Project Manager, Freudenberg-NOK, Northfield, NH (November 2009 – September 2011). Managed multiple product launches from initial design to production launch, including design, validation and production verification testing, following APQP procedures and leading a multidisciplinary team. Performed failure analysis on automotive components. Designed rotary shaft seals, molds and components for injection/compression molding, finishing and inspection. Developed new test methods in collaboration with axle manufacturers for the testing of rotary shaft seals and set up and performed the testing in-house. Obtained training in lean systems and Six Sigma methodology while participating in major and minor kaizens and Six Sigma investigations.

Failure Analysis Engineer, U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Cherry Point, NC (June 2008 – November 2009). Performed metallurgical analysis used to complete a multitude of failure analyses involving engine blades/vanes, foreign object damage, corrosion, aircraft structures, wire bundles, bolts & fasteners, gearboxes, circuit boards and hydraulic/pneumatic tubing. Modernized the welder certification and inspection program; created process improvement updates to industry-wide, military-wide, Navy-wide, and local manuals/instructions and performed welding analysis and certification for Navy welders.

Application Engineer, Elan Technology, Midway, GA (June 2007 – June 2008). Supported 25 customers worth ~$1 million annually through feasibility analysis, quoting, purchase orders, production, shipping, and technical support of glass and ceramic components in the electronics industry. Received training in the ISO/TS16949:2002 and AS9000 quality systems to perform as an internal auditor.
