Senior Stress Engineer


I am currently recruiting for a market leading consultancy seeking an experienced stress engineer to support stress analysis projects within a key aerospace client.

Your role will focus on supporting an internal product development team as they strive to bring to market advanced landing gear systems that will help make plane travel safer and more affordable with design improvements including lighter-weight, stronger and more technically advanced solutions.

To do this you will carry out static strength, stability, fatigue analysis, damage tolerance and fracture analyses of detailed designs of landing gear systems and components using both classical hand calculation and computer modelling analysis tools. You will then review and analyse results to ascertain the designs that may require an improvement.

-          Degree educated in mechanical engineering

-          A strong engineering background with good knowledge of design principles and strength of materials

-          Ability to analyse structural designs using computing tools such as Ansys, Abaqus, Nastran or Patran

-          Minimum 3 years + in the analysis of landing gear systems

In return they offer a varied role working directly with a key client in a customer facing role. To apply for this role send your CV to
