Job Summary 

Moog Aircraft Group is looking for a senior engineer to join an established engineering team at our Tewkesbury UK facility.

You will also support the growth of stress analysis skills across the engineering team through development of standard work and mentoring.

You will be required to demonstrate experience from working on multiple customer focused applications as an engineer involved in the stress analysis of metallic structures using a broad range of standard hand and computer calculation methods.

Your capability in finite element (FE) analysis should range from simplified 2D to detailed 3D solid modelling, with large models, complex boundary conditions, contact and non-linear behaviour. 

You will be able to validate FE models using hand calculations to demonstrate static load balance and correlation to theoretical assumptions.

You are likely to have knowledge and understanding of aerospace materials and a good understanding of the influence of manufacturing processes on the strength of components. The role will be extremely varied so someone who is able to work under pressure and adhere to timescales will do well in this role.
