As part of our continued support to a major OEM in the aerospace industry, we are currently looking for a number of aerospace Stress Engineers with experience of MSC Nastran/Patran to support our customer's projects. The candidate is required to be capable, flexible, and to be able to work independently to assess both composite and metallic design solutions using a variety classical stress methods and finite element analysis.


The rate will depend on the experience level, seniority, etc.


This is a contract role for an initial period of 3 months, it will be working on site at the client’s facility in Bristol.


The work will be inside of the IR35 regulations.


Expleo is a trusted partner for end-to-end, integrated engineering, quality services and management consulting for digital transformation. We help businesses harness unrelenting technological change to successfully deliver innovations that will help them gain a competitive advantage and improve the everyday lives of people around the globe.


Undertake stress analysis of wingbox structures:

  • Conduct a variety of stress analysis on both composite and metallic structures including general strength analysis, stiffness assessments, buckling and stability strength, fastener and joint strength, standard composite strength analysis of both sandwich and thermoset composite panels, composite damage tolerance analysis of open hole strength and compression-after-impact strength.
  • Static and fatigue and damage tolerance analysis.
  • Have a good understanding of wingbox structure design including understanding load and stiffness requirements, design of load interfaces such as flap and moveable surfaces and wingbox to fuselage connections
  • Perform finite element analysis using customer recognized toolsets (such as Nastran/Patran, Simcenter 3D). Candidate should be capable of creating, modifying, and post-processing results from FEM models.
  • Generate stress documentation including reserve factor summaries, detailed stress justifications, and certification reports
  • Process and verify documentation such as concessions and non-conformances, and provide technical support by implementing solutions to address non-conforming products, designs, and compliance documentation.
  • Perform all activities at a level of minimal supervision and guide other engineers within the work package as required.
  • Identify, analyse and resolve technical problems and apply/integrate solutions.
  • Develop, execute, and verify methods plans, toolsets and approaches that are appropriate and compliant to achieve the design and programme objectives.
  • Identify and assess technical risk and propose mitigations relevant to the workpackage within assigned programmes/projects.
  • Support generation of test specifications/plans and/or alternate means of compliance (analysis/similarity) as required to demonstrate design solution complies with certification requirements.
  • Be able to interpret and process design data including interfaces, dimensions, materials, parts, manufacturing process requirements, assemblies, and tolerances as part of the stress analysis of components.
  • Deliver assigned project deliverables, documents, and reports to the required quality standards and within the assign project target milestones.
  • Work within a team environment both locally and remotely.
  • Support and participate in technical and customer reviews, including formal gate reviews, including the creation and preparation of technical data and presentations of a work package.

Support the qualification process of products within a work package and prepare and/or check compliance documentation to internal, customer, and regulatory requirements, where
