Description of the job
Within the « Civil Vehicles & Platform Engineering » Department, the « Mechanical Loads & Sizing » Section (JOVM12) is in charge :
· of defining the mechanical environment at launcher and payload levels for allowing the definition of the mechanical architecture of the launcher system and sub-system with regard to static loads,
· of defining the sizing scheme (methodology to apply loads and boundary conditions for detailed sizing purposes) for all main launcher components,
· of sizing several launcher components under Airbus Safran Launchers development and manufacturing or to support design team in early development phases,
Challenges for the upcoming years are : simultaneously maintain and develop Ariane 5 launcher family (A5E/CA+, A5E/S GALILEO, A5E/S BEPI COLOMBO) and develop the new Ariane 6 launchers.
In this context, the applicant will join the General Loads team of the Section. She/he will perform activities in order to characterize mechanical static loads applied to A5/A6 launchers (finite element modelling, static analyses) for all life phases of the launchers (ground & flight).
This position will require a security clearance or will require being eligible for clearance by the recognized authorities.
