Performance & Dynamics Engineer

Full Time Permanent

UK Job Network

This is an exciting opportunity to work on major programmes within the Systems Engineering team based at Gloucester. You will be delivering performance and dynamic analysis for the mechanical, hydraulic and occasionally basic electrical systems as they relate to the operation of aircraft, landing gear, shock absorption, extension/retraction and steering.

You will be able to understand and derive requirements and how these impact the validation and verification of the product utilising standardised methods and tools. Possessing good knowledge of mechanical and hydraulic system products, you will help guide product development to ensure the performance and dynamics of the integrated system meet the program requirements.

Responsibilities include:

Build computational models and run simulations
Calculate static and dynamic loads
Conduction performance and frequency response analyses
Conduct stability, shimmy, modal analysis and failure case analyses
Correlate and validate computational models
Write and validate performance and dynamics requirements
Define and document simulation cases and pass/fail criteria
Optimise design solutions in conjunction with other engineering disciplines
Define test requirements and analyse and interpret test results
Adherence to the programme schedules

Candidate skills and requirements;

Basic knowledge of:
Multi-body dynamic modelling and simulation
Landing gear extension/retraction analysis
Shock absorber performance analysis
Recoil analysis
Shimmy and stability analysis
System loads generation
Basic knowledge of electrical systems engineering, nose-wheel steering analysis, vibration analysis, model integration, airworthiness requirements and aircraft systems certification process would be beneficial.
Working knowledge of MATLAB/Simulink, MSC ADAMS, MSC EASY5 and AMESim
Experience on requirements management and DOORS would be beneficial.
