This Structural Analysis Engineer position will report to the SLS Loads and Dynamics manager in Huntsville, AL, which is part of Boeing's Flight Capabilities team. The Space Launch System (SLS) program (primary program supported), in conjunction with NASA, is developing the nation's capability in manned access to space, including destinations beyond Earth orbit. This position performs loads development, integration, and documentation of advanced structural analysis across multiple Boeing Development Systems (BDS) programs, including the SLS Program, GBSD, and Commercial Crew.
Conducts analysis processes, with guidance from more senior engineers, to support loads analyses.
Coordinates with other engineering groups both within Boeing and with the government customer to establish system environments.
Loads analyses includes simulations of both ground and flight events to which the aerospace vehicle is exposed, and the development of internal loads on secondary structures or components associated with these mission events.
Loads analysis includes simulations using NASTRAN of all ground and flight events to which the vehicle is exposed, and the development of internal loads on secondary structures or components associated with these flight events. Examples include liftoff, ascent (gust/buffet response), and base-drive analysis using NASTRAN, etc.
Demonstrated experience with Craig-Bampton (CB) reductions in aerospace applications, launch vehicle applications are a plus.
Demonstrated experience creating Load Transformation Matrices (LTM) for aerospace applications is a plus.
Responsibilities also include performance of loads and dynamics analysis to assure compliance with structural integrity and stability requirements with direction from the Technical Lead.
Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians. Skilled scientists and thinkers. Bold innovators and dreamers. Join us, and you can build something better for yourself, for our customers and for the world.
