Job Description

Dynamic FEA Crash Engineers:

Seeking a talented engineer who will be responsible for performing static and quasi-static analysis independently starting from component to sub-structure level including dynamic analysis.


Inspect CAD data received from designers prior to the inception of meshing

  • Independently meshing the components using Altair tools and responsible for the quality checks defined per internal design validation guidelines
  • Set up the model for static, quasi static  and impact simulation for 16 and 14G loading conditions using Altair tools and/or LS-prepost
  • Analyze the test data to implement proper engineering approach into the FE model for further improvements
  • Implement analytical approach and establish correlation with actual test data
  • Perform FEA on detail parts and assemblies to verify compliance with structural and occupant injury criteria

Perform necessary linear/non-linear static analysis and dynamic simulation

  • Perform Pre and Post processing
  • Validate model and establish correlation
  • Document all design validation work and maintain database
  • Ensure quality of model, analysis and on time completion
  • Provides status and schedule updates to department head and other appropriate entities on a regular basis

  • Must have broad understanding of finite element analysis and fatigue methods
  • Must have FEA experience using LS-Dyna or Radioss. In addition, must have experience using Altair HyperWorks suite or ANSYS. Experience with NASTRAN or ABAQUS is preferred
  • Knowledge of stochastic/statistical tools (DOE) and Optimization tools is preferred
  • Knowledge of composites is preferred.
  • Knowledge of seat belt modeling is required
  • Must be well-versed in understand the kinematic of hybrid II/III dummy model.
  • Knowledge of topology along with weight and shape optimization using Opti-Struct is preferred
  • Must be able to generate technical reports
  • Must be willing to perform tests and some physical work at the test laboratory, as required
  • Basic ProE/CATIA skill is preferred
  • Familiarity with FAA regulations, Boeing/Airbus specifications is preferred
