Airbus Toulouse

Airbus Group is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2015, the Group - comprising Airbus, Airbus Defence and Space and Airbus Helicopters - generated revenues of € 64.5 billion and employed a workforce of around 136,600.

Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other's expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary - on the ground, in the sky and in space.

Description of the job

Airbus Toulouse is looking for an intern (m/f) for a 4 to 6-month internship.

The air inlet, 2 metres in diameter, is the aerodynamic structure bolted in front of the jet engine. It channels air to obtain the optimal conditions for correct engine operation and contributes to engine noise reduction.
Nacelle stress is a rich and complex environment (hybrid metallic/composite structure, cumulated aerodynamic, thermal and vibration loads, multi-mission fatigue, etc.).
In addition to the conventional static/fatigue stress activities, analysis dossiers must be drawn up further to the occurrence of split pipes, bird strikes, blade loss impact damage and system certification.

You will join the air inlet stress team that deals with feedback and in-service support.

This internship will start on 1st March 2017 (subject to some flexibility).

Tasks & accountabilities

This internship will involve the following:

·  Gaining knowledge of the product, the various development phases of aeronautical products, the role of air inlets, the description of the product, and mechanical and thermal loads,
·  Gaining basic knowledge of the structural stress function (load, constraints, failure modes, composite and metallic part stress, etc.),
·  Using Nastran/Patran structure stress tools,
·  Working on stress dossier architecture in order to rationalise/simplify criteria or stress points. Comparing existing dossiers on various programmes (advantages/disadvantages),
·  Suggesting a generic grid,
·  Using methods and tools to quickly check the impact of a load or design modification, a production non-conformity or in-service damage. The Air Inlet Design Office is a human size division comprised of about thirty technicians and engineers.

It manages series production follow-up for the A3456, A380-GP7200 and A380-T900 air inlets, air inlet certification for the A350XWB and product development for the A320NEO-CFM and A330NEO.
