Lockheed Martin Sr Structural Dynamics Engineer / Aerospace / Grand Prairie, TX in Grand Prairie, Texas
Lockheed Martin is seeking a Structural Dynamics Engineer to perform analysis, research, and design in such areas as mechanical, structures, or dynamics for development or production programs. The effort is on complex technical problems and provides solutions which are highly innovative and ingenious. The assignment addresses analysis and research encompassing multiple engineering disciplines, and also includes the planning, design, development, and testing of new aerospace products.
In addition to performing structural analysis, the candidate will be responsible for project leadership and coordination of technical, schedule, and budgetary issues for the structural and dynamic analysis and testing of top level assemblies, subsystems, and components.
Mechanical Engineering tasks assigned will include dynamics analysis support in development of missile configurations and canisters, generation of finite element models (FEM) and performing structural dynamic analyses, generation of classical structural dynamics analysis, and evaluation of design for issues or possible alternate design approaches. Additional experience performing tasks such as missile tip-off analysis, modal analysis, flexible flight loads, and test plan development/test support. Tasks also include performing preliminary and detailed structural and dynamic analysis on component and assemblies using standardized processes and tools. Tasks may also include providing support for structural or dynamic testing of systems, subsystems, and components. Candidate will perform structural and dynamic analysis using standardized analysis software tools and coordinate requirements and design solutions with program personnel. Experienced with relevant analytic tools for structural and dynamics analysis.
The candidate will provide technical documentation and input to data packages to support peer and customer reviews, present analysis data to program and customer personnel at technical interchange meetings, and design reviews.
Relocation: Relocation assistance is possible for this exciting position.
The Locale: Grand Prairie is part of the “Mid-Cities” region in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex which is in the North Central region of Texas. Grand Prairie is a suburb of both Dallas and Fort Worth.
