MECHANICAL ENGINEER



Primary Purpose of Role

· As a Mechanical Engineer, to perform activities for the development and delivery of Mechanical analysis, tests and justifications for a variety of space projects and products.

· Contribute to development projects for space systems and payloads, from Phase A to Phase C/D.

· Perform structural analysis activities to verify mechanical designs for space hardware and ground support equipment.

· Perform iterations of the design with analysis updates.

· Manage the Mechanical aspects of the qualification phase with predictions and test procedures for mechanical testing (vibration, shock).

· Generate FEMs, results, documentation and presentations.

Key Responsibilities and tasks

· Delivery of the following activities:

· Hand calculations and generation of FEMs to perform initial sizing of structural parts and assemblies

· Provide feedback to the design team on the suitability of the design for the loads.

· Generate preliminary and detailed FEMs of systems, subsystems and parts.

· Perform solutions and postprocess the results. Typical analyses include quasi-static, thermoelastic, modal, sine, random vibration and acoustic.

· Coupled-loads analysis and notching strategy.

· Compute safety margins and other parameters of merit, and present them in analysis reports

· Fastener, panel insert and adhesive joint sizing.

· Weld fatigue analysis

· Model checking, and peer review of others models.

· Generate and document deliverable models, including reduced FEMs

· Lead the development and test plan/qualification sequence for the mechanical aspects.

· Lead the interface definition, for example with interface loads.

· Identify the key drivers for the product competitiveness related to mechanical aspects.

· Contribute to the Alignment / Alignment Stability Budgets

· Optimise the design of parts as necessary to minimise mass, maximise stiffness within MoS constraints.

· Develop and generate design justifications

· Review, develop and implement Mechanical Analysis processes, procedures and tools in-line with project goals and methods.

· Manage analysis tasks between themselves, the team and contractors.

· Manage Mechanical workpackages, including forecasting and estimating.

Experience and Skills

· Responsibility for structural analysis using MSC Nastran and Patran and Siemens Femap for:

· Production of FEMs, including defeaturing, meshing and checking.

· Setting up, running and assessing static structural, dynamic, random, sine, acoustic and thermoelastic analyses.

· Model reduction

· Mapping of thermal cartography onto structural models

· Interface loads recovery

·

· Experience 3-8 Years in the Space domain (Mandatory)
