The Company:
Our Client is a world leading Automotive OEM which is responsible for some of the most iconic 4x4's & Sports Cars produced. Due to the huge demand for current models and substantial investment in future projects there is a requirement for more resources across the business in engineering & manufacturing on a contract basis.

The Role:
Development and implementation of structural CAE/virtual techniques across Product Analysis and Verification Group. This role involves structural analysis activities and technology development projects. The structural analysis activities require application of CAE toolset to determine strength, stiffness, modal and fatigue performance of test rig components and assemblies. The technology development projects focus on the development of new techniques to more closely align the virtual (CAE) and physical testing environments such as improving existing correlation methods or implementing new ones.

3 KEY SKILLS
First-hand experience and clear understanding of modelling and simulation of physical events using numerical techniques such as the finite element method.
Experience of using CAE toolsets, in particular HyperWorks and/or ABAQUS CAE, in the professional environment.
Professional attitude i.e. good time management, commitment to deadlines, self-motivated, team-working mind-set.

Experience Required:
Advanced-user knowledge of the Abaqus and Hyperworks tool suites, ideally applied within an automotive environment, to assess strength, stiffness and fatigue although other FE tool sets may be considered. Should the background of the candidate be multibody simulation then knowledge of multibody simulation tools, ideally SimPack and the use of multiaxis tyre models (FTyre) would be equally considered Working knowledge of common CAD packages e.g. Catia V5 and Team Centre Knowledge of implicit and implicit non-linear numerical analysis methods and their application Good knowledge of stress/strain and fatigue theory. Degree in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline

Experience Preferred:
Experience working in a CAE environment. Extensive experience in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and numerical methods applied to the assessment of metallic structures in terms of strength, stiffness, modal and durability performance and/or carrying out Multibody simulations to determine system performance / load predictions. Previous experience in adapting existing analytical techniques to new applications, identifying structural /mechanical performance indicators and using engineering standards.

Additional Information :
