Seeking a Stress Engineer to work in our GTF CSeries Team, ideally experienced in traditional fundamentals and modern, computer-based analysis tools, with an eagerness to learn new technologies. Joining our diverse and highly accomplished engineering team, you'll work alongside some of the most exceptional professionals in the industry as you engage in complex, cutting-edge projects throughout their life cycle.
Key functions: Working in a product development environment, you will perform substantiation stress analysis on new innovative aerospace hardware and components for nacelle systems. Conduct design trades and optimization considering strength, weight, cost & producibility. Generate certification reports in compliance with FAR requirements, generate reports suitable for transmittal to Airworthiness Authority and customer, and participate in Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR) and Critical Design Reviews (CDR), and LEAN Events. Methods of analysis will include Classical Hand Calculations, Finite Element Modeling using tools such as NASTRAN & PATRAN. You'll also coordinate with internal and external customers through written, verbal and media presentation, consult with subject matter experts within our organization, develop schedules and handle related responsibilities as needed.
Once product moves from development to production, responsibilities evolve to include: substantiation and sustaining stress analysis for post-certification product enhancement, cost and weight reduction initiatives, resolution of production and field issues, Apollo root cause analysis, and reconciliation analysis of the nacelle components for aircraft/engine variants, load/flight envelope changes and design life extension.
Tools: Finite Element Analysis Tools (NASTRAN, PATRAN), classical hand analysis and relevant internal tools
Basic Qualifications :
Bachelor's degree in Engineering with at least 5 years experience, or a Master's degree with 3 plus years experience performing stress analysis.
Strong background in primary structural analysis related to aircraft.
Strong understanding of load paths and various aspects of airframe design using metals and composites.
Experience in classical hand analysis methods used in aerospace applications, along with Finite Element Analysis Tools such as NASTRAN & PATRAN or similar software applications are required.
Experience in aircraft structural components static, durability and damage tolerance analysis preferred.
Experience in a product development teams with engine / airframe companies highly desired.
Experience of material (Composite & Metallic) or structural testing is preferred.
Strong technical writing and PC skills with proficiency in MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint).
Excellent communication and presentation skills with the ability to work closely as a team with other international locations.
