FE Structural Engineer / Stress Analyst - Fatigue - UK renewables
Experience - Engineering Degree (Mechanical Engineer or similar)
With commercial experience on FEM calculations.
& used a FE package for practical stress analysis.
Role: Specification, Development, and Validation of calculations; both analytical and finite element (FEM) calculations, including extreme and fatigue loads calculations
For a large renewables design house. Heavy castings, steel, welded structures, structural bolted connection, bearings, actuators, motor-gearboxes, brake systems, etc.
FEM model definition and calculations. Components and sub-systems integration from calculation point of view.
Analysis and evaluation of calculations (analytical and/or FEM) developed by external suppliers. Calculation procedures, specifications and methodologies definition and improvement.
Experience: FEA - at least one year's experience as a full-time finite element analyst.
ANSYS (preferred), NASTRAN, PATRAN, I-DEAS, ABAQUS, Cosmos, Algor.
Fatigue analysis - Any of: stress-based fatigue, load time series, stochastic loading, rainflow cycle counting, critical plane analysis, Markov matrix, Haigh diagram.
Fatigue software packages such as n-code
Or FE-Safe or Falancs (or an in-house fatigue calculation software)
We are looking for a structural analyst, who can immerse himself in generating stress distributions using ANSYS and use the results in stress-based fatigue calculations.
What, if any experience do you have:
using a single FE code and can solve complex FE problems (ANSYS, ABAQUS)
writing ANSYS input code (ANSYS Parametric Design Language)
Do you have working knowledge and can review FE calculations
or any fatigue calculation (either using nCode, FE-Safe, Falancs, or some bespoke signal-processing code).
Does your FE experience with packages cover portal frame design and structural steelwork for buildings. Eg high-cycle stress-based fatigue loadings
We looking for a structural analyst, who has studied mechanical structures such as castings, welded fabrications and large mechanical components.
The Client: a fast growing, innovative and exciting company to work for, that offer excellent chances for technical and personal development.
