RESEARCH ENGINEER - COMPUTATIONAL MECHANICS 18-01385 Email a friend Who We Are: The Computational Mechanics Section does modeling and testing of materials under extreme conditions (elevated temperatures, high pressures, large strains, high strain-rates). The data are used to create sophisticated computer models of interest for defense, aerospace, and hypersonics applicationS. Objectives of this Role: Perform experimental and computational analysis of mechanical deformation and material failure in support of impact physics, protection and space systems research. Strong background in plasticity, continuum mechanics, damage and failure mechanics is desirable. Ability to work in a team and strong communication, interpersonal, and business skills. Participate in individual and collaborative research projects as well as support promotional activities for research programs. Interact with both commercial and government clients, develop approaches based on client problems, needs, and goals, and manage tasks to successful completion within technical, budget, and schedule constraints under the direction of senior staff. Through experiments and computations, develop understanding and models of impact events and develop methods to mitigate the effects or impacts. Write technical reports, make presentations to clients, and author submissions to journals. Daily and Monthly Responsibilities: Computer simulations of materials under shock and impact. Testing of materials with MTS, Hopkinson Bar, Plate Impact, ballistic impact, etc. Develop algorithms in MatLab, Python, FORTRAN, or similar for high strain-rate applications. Use of lasers in various applications. Use of digital image correlation. Requirements: Requires a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering] or Nuclear Engineering. 0-5 years: Previous experience with computer codes applied to impact problems is a plus. Previous experience with testing materials using universal testing machines is a plus. Previous experience with testing materials at high strain rates is a plus. Previous experience with lasers is a plus. A valid/clear driver's license is required. Special Requirements: Applicant selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information. Applicant must be a U.S. citizen. Job Locations: San Antonio, Texas For more information about this division, visit the Mechanical Engineering home page.
