Are you an experience Crash and Containment Engineer looking for a new challenge?

My client, a world-leader in the development of electric aircraft are looking to expand their team. If you're interested in working on the next-generation, groundbreaking (not literally) technologies in this sector then read below.

The role
As a calculation engineer for the Crash & Impact Team, you will demonstrate a strong background in explicit FE analysis to help shape the future of urban e-mobility.
In this position, you will have the exciting opportunity to work within the rapidly growing Crash & Impact Team as part of the Calculation Department. You will report to the Team Lead Crash & Impact and be part of the multi-disciplinary Integrated Project Team for "Propulsion".

Your day to day:

  • Analysis of short-term dynamic impact events to the Propulsion System (i.e. hail/bird ingestion, fan blade off and rotor burst containment) by means of explicit numerical simulations (FEM)
  • Be responsible for numerical modelling (pre-processing), conduction of simulations / calculations, post-processing and reporting of the results
  • Actively affect the design of components to withstand possible impact scenarios during the preliminary and detailed product development phase
  • Serve as contact person to engineers from neighbouring disciplines regarding short-term dynamic events

Therefore, I am ideally seeking candidates that can demonstrate the following skills and expertise:

  • Experience in a similar position in the Aerospace industry is necessary
  • Extensive knowledge of non-linear explicit FE analysis methods, structural mechanics and progressive failure analysis
  • Practical experience in the use of the commercial explicit FE code Altair RADIOSS and the corresponding pre- and post-processing tools (HyperMesh & HyperView) is a must
  • Fundamental understanding of composite & metallic structures failure, particularly under dynamic conditions, structural joints and physical/mathematical modelling approaches for all
  • Experience in the analysis of impact events to engines and their surrounding structure in the framework of an aircraft engine certification programme is preferrable
  • Experience with testing, article and fixture design and instrumentation is preferrable
  • High level of self-reliance and autonomy, with the ability to work collaboratively in a team
  • Ability to work with stakeholders to break work packages into logical and manageable sub-tasks which address requirements in a timely manner
  • Target-oriented, driven workstyle with analytic problem solving skills required
  • Fluent English language skills are essential, fluent German or any other language would be beneficial

This opportunity can also be offered on a REMOTE WORKING basis if preferred.
