Project Engineer – Stress to join the CAE team in a rapidly expanding and exciting work environment. Working within the CAE group the successful individual will have a good understanding of structural analysis methods to support a diverse project portfolio, help drive our design-development process and develop toolsets and methodologies for improved correlation with physical test.


Working within the stress analysis group, supporting the wider CAE department. Working across a matrix structure, supporting project teams to fulfil customer requirements and deliverables. To be client-centric, interacting directly with internal and external customers. To work across a wider variety of projects, for diverse clients across a number of engineering sectors. Provide project pre-contract and kick off representation as well as main point of contact and independent running of large, complex projects. Aiding concept direction, through feasibility and early stage analysis. Presentation, reporting and discussion of analysis results and participation in design reviews. Creation, development and running of stress analysis simulations including:

  1. Implicit analysis in response to service loads
  2. Explicit analysis in response to crash requirements
  3. Modal and frequency response simulation
  4. Fatigue analysis and calculation
  5. Hand calculations for mechanical fixings, inserts and bonded joints

Load case generation from various sources. Detailed analysis of simulation results and creation of comprehensive post processing. Aiding correlation activity with input to physical testing, calibration and validation. To balance multiple concurrent projects and manage your own workload. Developing co-simulation toolsets and stress methodologies. Documenting procedures, best practises and simulation methodologies. Supporting/mentoring of engineers and project engineers within the group. Checking and approval of calculations, simulations and reports.

Stress/FEA: It is critical you have a very solid understanding of 1st principals. The company works with a variety of material types and you should have an understanding of metallics and composites. Applied experience in a quality FEA tool (Hyperworks, Ansys, etc). FEA Analysis experience. A Degree in mechanical, automotive, or aerospace engineering. Extensive experience of stress simulation with one or more of the following:

  1. Implicit analysis, ideally using Altair OPTISTRUCT
  2. Explicit analysis, ideally using Altair RADIOSS or LS-Dyna
  3. Fatigue analysis, ideally using nCode or FEMFAT

Knowledge of running non-linear analysis would be beneficial. Experience with analysis of metallic and composite structures would be beneficial. Experience in the automotive, aerospace or motorsport industry. Some practical experience of physical testing would be beneficial. Working knowledge of TeamCentre and of CATIA V5 or Siemens NX would be advantageous. Working towards, or have achieved, Chartership status with the IMechE/IET (or similar) would be advantageous. If any of these are of interest please apply directly or send your CV to george.taylor@everec.co.uk specifying which role you would like to discuss. I will then send over the full JD's for the specific positions.
