Analysis Engineer required on a contract basis to join an industry leading engineering and manufacturing business.
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity at the forefront of battery technology? Do you have a background strategically controlling the design and development of components and systems? Have you got experience of working in a fast paced engineering environment? If you are seeking an exciting challenge then this is the role for you!
As an Analysis Engineer you will conduct numerical computations via third party and in-house tools to determine structural performance of components and systems. You will evaluate software and methods and provide improvement recommendations. The results from the computer models are used to determine the validity of the design to meet the customer requirements. Design recommendations are then provided as needed.
The role:Obtains input and negotiates with Design, Thermal Sciences, Materials and Product Validation and delivers key structural performance parameters like motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power, etc. to Design and Product Validation.Makes decisions in the area of structural design (materials and their processing as well as geometry) that impact structural performance (motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power, etc.) of components and systems Applies and improves computer modeling processes that estimate motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power, etc. and tools such as ANSYS, FE-Safe, GT-Suite, and AVL Excite required to support the processes and enable high quality decision making.Provides independent leadership of smaller business impact projects or ownership of complex components, products, systems or services with greater elements of ambiguity over the senior or lead engineer level and with full accountability to the project team.Delivers independent execution of established and emerging work processes and systems, while still developing technology or product knowledge.Leads the development and improvement of work processes and systems across a functional discipline area within a business unit site.Coordinates and directs work amongst technicians and temporary student employees, assists in the transfer of knowledge to lesser experienced engineers through either indirect (scope of influence) or direct management of a small, local group of engineers.Provides support and guidance to influence technical direction within a project team and continues to develop proficiency in the competency areas critical to success in the role.Operates as a recognized specialist in a discipline or product area within the immediate team.
Core competencies for this role:Applies Principles of Fatigue and Durability Applies Principles of Noise and Acoustics Applies Principles of Dynamics and Vibration Product Systems Modeling and Analysis Product Problem Solving Systems Modeling and Simulation Decision quality Drives results Communicates effectively Builds networksManages complexity
Experience required:Prior Senior or Lead Engineer equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline area is required with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving and quality decision making.Preferred candidates would have a mix of experience using MS Office tools, Matlab, Python, APDLANSYS, FORTRAN or C programming, Windows/Linux operating systems, and desktop/remote high performance computing hardware systems.Ideally you will have completed a college, university, or equivalent Bachelor's degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required. Post-graduate (Master's) degree relevant to this discipline area may also be an advantage.Good background and understanding in engineering fundamentals (dynamics, mechanics and thermodynamics)Design experience, able to make adjustments to existing models and provide sound design direction to improve components/systems ability to meet requirementsAble to break down mechanical and thermal requirements into analytical tasks and pass-fail criteria to asses designsExperienced in interpreting and correlating to empirical data (time based accelerometer data, Frequency response plots, thermocouple data... etc.)Skilled in Ansys Workbench tools in both structural and thermal analysis essential ( transient structural, Harmonic response, random vibration.. etc.)Skilled in Explicit Dynamics for crash and drop analysis (LS Dyna, Ansys Explicit Dynamics)Experienced in using multi-physics optimization tools
