Research Engineer – Nonlinear Finite Element Developer/Analyst (DC) Posted 4/19/2013
Applied Science & Investigations
A successful candidate should have a strong command of computational structural mechanics and proficiency in the development and use of advanced FEA methods and software, both commercial and/or proprietary. A candidate should demonstrate background and command in several of the following key areas of interest:
Analysis of various types of structures subjected to extreme loads, including airblast, underwater explosions, impact, fatigue and fire effects
Analysis of vibrations of coupled fluid-solid systems for modal, acoustic, sound radiation, and durability
Mechanics of large deformation and failure of ductile, brittle, composite, and hybrid materials
Participation in development of constitutive models for numerical simulation of nonlinear material and structural behavior, including failure
Pre- and post-processing automation algorithms, and development of modules interacting through Standard Application Interface (API) programming.
Strong background in structural mechanics and proficiency in finite element analysis, in terms of both development and advanced usage of commercial and/or lab software
Additional qualifications include:
Working knowledge of damage tolerance and fail-safe principles for aircraft components, both metal and composite
Basic understanding of fatigue testing and load spectra
Command of computational structural acoustics
Differentiating qualifications include recent conclusion of academic study, demonstrated development of FEA code, and publications.
Any new hire will be involved heavily in finite element modeling of severe or unusual mechanical phenomena, such as blast, shock, fire, fatigue, and structural acoustics in moderate to large structures. This will include development of large models using interactive CAE tools, performing the analyses, and interpreting and analyzing the results. Finite element software may include both in-house and commercially available tools such as Flex, Dyna, HyperWorks, Ansys, and Abaqus; we do not necessarily expect expertise in specific tools.
Recent PhD in structural engineering, applied mechanics, mechanical engineering, or related field. Strong interpersonal skills and willingness to work in an aggressive, success-oriented team environment are advantageous.
Position requires U.S. citizenship and eligibility for a government issued security clearance. Clearly indicate in your response your citizenship status.
