***Stress Analysis Engineer – Propulsion (Remote working, Outside IR35)***

Would you like to join a global aerospace organisation and work with cutting edge technology where you will play a key role in bringing innovative electric aircraft to life?

Due to a drive for greater success, this advanced manufacturing business is currently searching for a Stress Analysis Engineer – Propulsion to add to their talented, hardworking team on a 6 month contract (extension possible). Striving for innovation and creativity you can ensure no two days will be the same. This role offers fully remote working with negotiable hourly rate, outside IR35.

This is a phenomenal opportunity to not only work for a prestigious, advanced organisation, but to gain skills and knowledge you will not find anywhere else.

The Role

As a Stress Analysis Engineer – Propulsion –you will be responsible for:

  • Sizing and stress analysis of propulsion unit structures by means of hand calculations, numerical simulations (FEM) and optimization techniques
  • Create, manage and validate detailed FE models of complete propulsion structures and systems, with responsibility for the full workflow of numerical modelling, solving and post-processing
  • You will have a particular focus on topics such as:
    • Linear and non-linear static analysis
    • Fatigue analysis (LCF, HCF)
    • Fracture mechanics analysis
    • Vibration analysis such as Modal, Harmonic or forced response, Random vibration, Rotor dynamics)

In addition, you will also be responsible for model correlation with static and dynamic test data for certification purposes and creation of clear and concise technical reports and documentation.


To succeed within the role of a Stress Engineer – Propulsion, you will have the following skills:
