Jan Bostelman, P.E., PMP
Subject Matter Expert – Nuclear, Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering
Ms. Bostelman’s technical background includes over 35 years of experience in safety and material assessments, their application to materials systems reliability, nuclear reactor systems process, licensing, analytical modeling and computer code utilization. She has worked as an engineering consultant for 20 years, a public utility supervisor and engineer for 14 years, a professional engineer for over 20 years, sealed numerous calculations/analyses under her purview, and is an active licensed professional metallurgical engineer in several states. This experience has allowed her to develop experience in reactor safety system performance analysis methodologies, and be a participant for nuclear industry decision-making policies (EPRI, DOE and NRC).
Jan has served on EPRI’s main advisory committee (Materials/Chemistry, Low Level Radioactive Waste, and Fuel Storage/Fuel Reliability/High Level Radioactive Waste) and has extensive managerial and technical experience in chemical modeling, handling/experimentation, materials science and characterization/reliability, nuclear fuel, reactor operations, commercial nuclear safety analyses (thermal hydraulic/transient/radiological consequences), power uprates, component upgrades, and commercial nuclear licensing issues. She is proficient in numerous computational code methodologies related to nuclear and non-nuclear applications, with extensive experience with radiological consequence calculations, and certified in several computer code applications from source term development through atmospheric modeling and dose consequences to site boundaries or organs. Consistently she has worked in area of design basis reconstitution, design control, configuration management, and control of engineering margins.
She has worked with the University of New Mexico for groundwater remediation, and evaluated high level radioactive waste storage for commercial nuclear and at the Yucca Mountain facility. She is a qualified design calculation reviewer for several organizations currently. She has extensive background in utilizing Scientech licensing searches and understanding of codes/regulations related to nuclear power. Significant interface with Federal and state regulators across US and overseas. Experienced with code of federal regulations regarding effluents, emergency planning release predictions and permit/license processes. Experienced with various radiation monitor technologies and sensitivities.
