Working within the CAE Group, the primary responsibility will be to provide expert materials and CAE advice to support all aspects of design, analysis and manufacture. This will require knowledge of both metallic and non-metallics with a particular emphasis on composite materials and adhesive bonding technologies.
Additionally the candidate is expected to be able exploit engineering first principles to support FE analysis and become directly involved in enhancing the predicative ability of crashworthiness FE models along with an understanding of how this feeds back into the design department.
The team is primarily responsible for constructing, running and evaluating finite element models of products and their subsystems. Engineers are expected to mesh geometry and complete all model build activities in Hyper Mesh / Hyper Crash and to perform post-process analysis using Hyper View.
This role includes working with analysis, simulation and system specification.
The candidate is expected to employ sound engineering practices and innovative thinking to assist the design teams, and to liaise with the development, project management, commercial, prototype and production manufacturing teams, technical partners and suppliers to ensure projects meet the requirements for timing, performance, manufacturability and cost.
Qualifications and experience:
It is anticipated that you will have a relevant background experience with at least five years' experience in at least one of the above mentioned disciplines, be ideally educated to degree level in a mechanical or aeronautical discipline and have demonstrable experience of managing teams.
