Job Description:
Shift 1st Shift 1 year 9/80
Subject Matter Expert (SME) in either aircraft loads analysis or flutter analysis to support aircraft development programs and advanced technologies development. As a subject matter experts, the candidate will lead loads and dynamics activities on one or more programs and perform one or more of the following tasks:
•    Development of design loads criteria and governing documents
•    Flight loads: steady state maneuvers, abrupt maneuvers, gust response, control surface hinge moments, and all including aero-elastic effects
•    Ground loads: catapult loads, arresting loads, shipboard deck handling loads, crash loads ground handling, landing loads, taxi and take-off loads, and drop test loads
•    Miscellaneous loads: canopy, door, pressurization, engine mount, external store, tie-down/mooring, and aerial refueling
•    Dynamics loads: gust response, buffet analysis, store ejection, impact, and vibro-acoustics
•    Aeroelasticity and flutter analysis
•    Fatigue spectra generation: master event spectrum, event sequencing, and loads spectra
•    Flight and ground testing: loads instrumentation and calibration, structural static/proof, flight ground vibration test planning
•    Dynamics tests such as GVT pre-test analysis, data reduction and model correlation.
The successful candidate will be a highly-motivated self-starter. In addition, the successful candidate must be proactive, forward-thinking, and able to lead to rapid resolution of complex problem.
