Hi, I'm Dr Peter Lucon
I am Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Montana Technological University in Butte, MT, USA.
Peter Lucon is Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Montana Technological University in Butte, MT, USA.
He worked on various applications of resonant devices across a wide range of industries. In 2006 he was commissioned by the Department of Energy (DOE) to work on the sonic drilling technology where he established the wave equations governing the sonic drilling vibratory regimes and resolved them numerically, Final Report . He continued the modeling work for his PhD.
In 2019 he was hired on a development project for a deep-water seabed-based geotechnical sonic rig, where he delivered resonant frequencies, max achievable drill depth, fatigue assessment on critical components, and resulting guidance on drilling protocol. Peter holds a number of patents for various resonant devices.
