Mechanical EngineerCrawley, West Sussex
Scope This job description describes what is expected of a contract Mechanical Engineering Analyst working within the Thales Crawley ISR hardware engineering organisation. Discipline Description Mechanical Engineering within the ISR Hardware Team provides diverse skills, knowledge, expertise and experience in the mechanical design of multiple platform environments from submarines to aircraft. The role will require the engineer to operate within multi-functional project/product teams over a complete programme life cycle from Bid Phase to In-service Support. The mechanical design of complex, high performance sub-systems in short timescales requires the use of advanced engineering analysis tools - those in use include leading products such as CREO Simulate GEA for structural analysis. Primary Purpose of the Job To make a contribution to the achievement of project(s) design requirements by having the responsibility for analysing the packaging design of Military and Commercial electronic equipment to ensure it meets the operational requirements of airborne, seaborne, submarine and land based products. Principal Relationships Operating within multi-functional project teams you will be responsible for delivering hardware mechanical designs to agreed timescales and budgets. Depending on the size of the project you may report to the Mechanical Team Leader and/or Engineering Manager or Work Package Leader. Key Tasks * Theoretical assessment of the design and its associated requirements to ensure that equipment performance requirements are met, primarily structural, dynamic and thermal analyses. * Provide design guidance to the design team during product development. * Generation of analysis reports. * Support the project engineering team - liaise with, and support other disciplines. * Estimation of tasks and generation of plans. * Report on progress. * Comply with local and company processes and procedures (supported by the Thales Engineering team). * Support the Hardware Discipline Leadership Team. Experience Required: * Minimum of 10 years experience of structural engineering in any or all of the following fields: o Naval Shock o Airborne Civil or Military * Experience with fastened joint design & welded joint design. * The candidate shall have a proven track record in undertaking structural analysis, using recognised FEA/GEA (PTC Pro-Mechanica/CREO Simulate). * Experience in design and analysis of mechanisms. * Experience in use of hand calculations from recognised sources or self-generated. * Experience in the use of free body diagrams. * Familiarity with NAFEMS analysis and validation processes would be an advantage. * Demonstrate the interpretation of modelling results and the ability to post process. * Understanding of failure mechanics. * Understands assumption making and how they impact modelling results. * A good understanding of material mechanics and physics. * A good understanding of the processâ€™s for dynamic (shock) & static modelling of structures. * Experience in the direction and encouragement of mechanical designers and working in close cooperation with associated project engineers of various disciplines. * Experience in the design of equipment for military environments eg 19â€ racks, cardframes, modules, antennas & lifting equipment. * Experience in designing for shock and vibration with practical testing experience. * A good understanding of shock and vibration isolation systems. * Good knowledge of materials and finishes for harsh environments. * Experience in design of composite structures (optional). * Working knowledge of MoD/Mil procedures and specifications including environmental (eg DEF-STAN 00-35). * Experience in the generation of formal stress reports. * Understands configuration control using product data management tools. * Basic understanding of airworthiness in the design process. * Experience in thermal analysis using a CFD analysis tool would be an advantage (optional) Qualifications Required Mechanical Engineering degree 2.1 or above with appropriate subject choices.
