Job Description
Are you interested in working for the company that is the world’s leading aerospace company?  Boeing will challenge your technical abilities you and stretch your imagination to provide innovative solutions to some very complex problems.  You will have the opportunity to work on programs that may change the course of human history (yes, we are talking about sending humans to Mars).  Our vast portfolio of programs (Space Launch System, Commercial Crew, and Phantom Express) provides candidates with the opportunity to grow and develop a wide range of technical expertise throughout their career.  If you have the desire to influence designs and to see hardware through qualification and certification then this is the right job for you.
This Structural Analysis Engineer position is for a member of our Loads and Dynamics/Vibration Shock and Acoustics team, specializing in acoustic/structural/dynamic analysis.
Candidate has the option of working at the El Segundo, CA location or the Huntsville, AL location.
Position Responsibilities:
  • Conduct dynamic analysis for Acoustic, Random Vibration, and Shock to establish the system design
  • Dynamic/Acoustic analysis to generate external as well as internal acoustic requirements, defining component qualification levels (random vibration, shock, and acoustics), and isolation system design
  • Acoustic and Finite Element analysis using statistical energy methods (Statistical Energy Model and Hybrid Acoustic models within the VA-One software tool) and/or finite element methods (Patch Method)
  • Coordinate with other engineering groups to establish the product's design environment;
  • Guide product design and verifies structural integrity by using and developing analytical methods, statistical energy and finite element models/simulations and other analysis tools throughout the product life cycle to develop structural/dynamic environments, component qualification levels and durations, system dynamic characteristics and performance
  • Support both internal and external supplier development of test plans and configurations, supports test execution and analyzes/reports test results to validate and verify systems and components meet design requirements and specifications
  • Define and document certification and test results to substantiate for customers and regulatory agencies that requirements are satisfied
  • Support in-service products by leading investigations into failures and analyzing improvements
  • Develop analytical processes/tools to improve effectiveness, quality and efficiency of the development effort
  • Analyze test data (time histories) and process acceleration power spectral density (PSD) plots and shock response spectrum (SRS) plots
Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians.
