Garret Meijer, Ph.D., P.Eng.

Lead Engineer and Discipline Lead, Material Characterization

Garret joined Noetic’s team in 2006, and since then he has concentrated on enhanced in situ recovery applications. His efforts have focussed on the post-yield mechanical behaviour of OCTG materials in extreme service applications, and on optimisation of steam injection using computer and experimental modelling. Recently, Garret has been upgrading Noetic’s coupled wellbore/reservoir flow model (FloNet) to enable prediction of wet steam distribution and associated heat delivery to the formation in SAGD injection wells that incorporate flow optimisation devices.

Garret has extensive experience testing tubes under combined axial/internal pressure loads and developing advanced non-linear elastic-plastic and visco-elastic constitutive material models. Garret achieved great knowledge in design and analysis based on API/AISC/CISC/ASM/CSA/OHS codes and regulations, due to his previous experience with a consulting firm in Calgary. This position involved performing numerical analysis, structural inspection, failure analysis, repair specification and field testing of heavy equipment, oilfield equipment and pipe.

In 2006, Garret completed his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta. He has contributed papers regarding the mechanical behaviour of metal matrix and fibre reinforced polymer composite materials to scientific journals and has presented his work at international conferences including the International Congress on Mechanical Behaviour of Materials, 1995 and 1999 and International SAMPE Symposium and Exhibition, 2001 among others.

Garret enjoys photography and woodworking in his free time.
