Senior Stress Engineer - Tewkesbury An exciting role has opened for a Senior Stress Engineer to join an established engineering team at the Tewkesbury UK facility of a leading engineering company who produce civil and military aircraft hydraulic components. As the Senior Stress Engineer, you will perform static stress and fatigue calculations, make design recommendations, assess part non-conformances, support failure investigations, produce analysis reports and coordinate test work required to verify analysis models. You will also support the growth of stress analysis skills across the engineering team through development of standard work and mentoring. This role will be ideal for someone who is able to work under pressure and adhere to timescales and who enjoys extremely varied projects. You will be required to: Demonstrate experience from working on multiple customer focused applications as an engineer involved in the stress analysis of metallic structures using a broad range of standard hand and computer calculation methods. Show capability in finite element (FE) analysis should range from simplified 2D to detailed 3D solid modelling, with large models, complex boundary conditions, contact and non-linear behaviour. You will be able to validate FE models using hand calculations to demonstrate static load balance and correlation to theoretical assumptions. Have knowledge and understanding of aerospace materials and a good understanding of the influence of manufacturing processes on the strength of components.
