Airbus Blagnac

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 Blagnac is looking for an intern for 6-month internship.

Your internship will take place within the engineering structure team supporting all stress activities for the Nose and Centre Fuselage section for the Wide Body Aircraft program.

The goal of the project is to investigate new capabilities through the Finite Element Method (FEM) and/or Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM) in order to predict the initiation and direction of propagation of a crack caused by fatigue damage.

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

Tasks & accountabilities

Your main tasks will include:

·  Demonstrating the feasibility, the advantage and the limitations of such solutions in an industrial context. The XFEM technology will be compared to some experimental test results to consolidate the prediction and accuracy of such solution.
·  Once the validity of the approach will be consolidated, participating to the development or adaptation of a specific model based on the existing, in an aircraft area submitted to a complex mechanical loading, for testing the innovative solutions and for demonstrating the capabilities to support engineering team for designing an optimised repair solution or associated modification.

A trade-off will be perform with the current and classical methodology used within the engineering in terms accuracy, simulation process and simulation cost (model development time, CPU).

Required skills

You are in the 1st year of a master's or the 4th year of engineering school, university or equivalent specialising in Engineering / Mechanical Engineering.

You ideally have an initial experience and you have competencies in mechanical engineering and numerical simulation (Finite Element Method).

You are a strong team player and have excellent interpersonal skills.

English: advanced level,
French: Intermediate level.
