Job Description

Structural Day to Day:

As a Structural Engineer with a focus on analytical responsibilities, especially within Finite Element Analysis (FEA) maps, here are some of the day-to-day responsibilities you may have: conduct structural analysis of ships to calculate a vessel design's potential stresses and fatigue using FEA software. This includes analyzing stresses, strains, and deformations of the structure under various loading conditions. Additionally, you will develop design criteria based on the results of your structural analysis, ensuring that the structure can withstand the expected loads and environmental conditions, create 3D models of the structure using CAD software and then import these models into FEA software for analysis, interpret the results of your structural analysis and use them to make recommendations for improvements or changes to the structure design.

The ideal candidate has a background in ship, shipyard, aerospace, oil and gas, or similar industries as these programs require complex design structures.
