United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

Robert Tregoning

Rob is the Senior Technical Advisor for Materials Engineering in the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research at the NRC.  Rob is currently working on several projects within the Division of Engineering including research associated with degradation of reactor vessel internals, environmentally assisted fatigue, aging of cast austenitic steels, primary water stress corrosion cracking in Ni-based alloys, and probabilistic and deterministic structural integrity assessment.  Rob is also supporting the resolution of issues related to GSI-191.  He has previously worked on the development of loss-of-coolant-accident frequencies and on the structural integrity assessment of the Davis-Besse degraded reactor pressure vessel head.

Before joining the NRC, Rob worked for the U.S. Navy as a materials engineer at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC).  At NSWC, Rob performed research, testing, evaluation, and analysis pertaining to structural integrity issues for ship and submarine applications.

Rob received a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
