Develop, integrate and document structural requirements to establish the system design. Perform analysis of metals, polymers, and composite materials. Communicate and coordinate with internal and external stakeholders including upper management. Guide product design and verify structural integrity by using analytical methods, finite element analysis (FEA/FEM) models/simulations and other analysis tools throughout the product lifecycle to develop the structural environment, characteristics and performance.
Develop test plans, conducts pre-test analysis, monitors tests, analyzes and correlates test data, and documents results, to develop and certify structural concepts, investigates failures and develops material allowables.
Define and document certification and test results to substantiate for customers and regulatory agencies that requirements are satisfied.
Support in-service products by investigating failures and analyzing
Develop analytical processes/tools to improve effectiveness, quality and efficiency of the development effort. Investigate emerging technologies to develop future product designs to meet projected requirements. Works under general direction.
Composite Stress Analysis - Completely understands and applies failure criteria and modes, environmental effects, and lamination theory to perform stress analysis of composite structures.
Develop Structural Methods - Develop new structural analysis methods and tools to advance the company's competitive advantage.
Fatigue/Durability Analysis - Completely understands and applies classical and durability methods to analyze, validate, and achieve design service objectives.
Damage Tolerance - Completely understands and applies fracture mechanics principles and analysis codes (e.g. AFGRO, ABAQUS VCCT) to analyze, validate, and achieve design service objectives.
Non/Linear Finite Element Method - Completely understands and applies linear and non-linear finite element methods and tools (NASTRAN, ABAQUS, ANSYS, PATRAN) to develop structural models and compute deflections, loads, stresses, natural frequencies, and mode shapes.
Structural Test Support - Leading analysis and test engineering teams for certification of composite aircraft structures by developing a test plan (e.g., requirements, objectives, instrumentation, conditions), conducting pre-test analysis, monitoring test, analyzing test data, and summarizing and documenting results to develop and certify structural concepts, investigate failures.
Structural Engineering - Completely understands and applies structural engineering (e.g., strength of materials, freebody diagrams, buckling, statics, dynamics) and scientific principles to develop, design, analyze, test, and validate structures solutions. Conduct detailed analysis (e.g., classical techniques, finite element methods, JOLT, CSW, FEADMS, IAS, CATIA, and ENOVIA) on metallic and/or composite structures to determine structural integrity.
Structures Programming - Completely understands and applies software programs (e.g. Fortran, Python, Matlab, VB) to enhance and automate the performance of structural analysis tasks.
