Hyundai Motor Group is at the forefront of creating emerging mobility solutions that will foster the development of human-centered cities. The Group’s Urban Air Mobility Division is designing a completely new electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft tailored to the mobility needs of future cities, allowing passengers a seamless intermodal journey that safely transports them to their final destination. We fuse research in autonomy, robotics, aviation and services to define a new category of mobility for the world’s communities. We believe in creative thinking and collaboration to help build a better mobility experience for everyone, improving people’s ability to move – whether for work or play.
What we do:
Our Airframe Structural Analysis team is responsible for performing analysis of airframe structures and will work closely with Structural Design, Loads, Payloads/Interiors and System groups. We are looking for Senior Structural Analyst to help build our structural analysis capabilities from the ground up. Our ideal candidate has significant experience and expertise in structural analysis of airframe composite primary structures. This position will report to the Airframe Structural Analysis manager and provide technical solutions for the Airframe Structural Analysis team.
What you can do:
- Develop the analysis methods and tools for composite laminate aircraft primary structures
- Support development of airframe structural design requirements and criteria
- Develop the inputs/requirements for composite laminate material allowable to support structural analysis and collaborate with Material & Process to develop composite material allowable
- Collaborate with structural designers for the initial structural sizing and preliminary substantiation
- Provide support to development of manufacturing process/methods and structural evaluation
- Coordinate with other disciplines (External load/Aero, Weight, Mechanism, System, Propulsion) to address loads & requirements at the interface with airframe structures
- Develop the internal load Finite Element Model (FEM), incorporate all external loads to support initial sizing, preliminary designs & detailed designs
- Perform structural analysis to substantiate airframe structural designs (fuselage, wing, empennage, major fittings, etc.)
- Mentor junior analysts in the group
What you can do:
- Minimum of 10 years of aircraft structural analysis experience
- BS, MS in Mechanical, Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering or related field
- Leading team experience and mentoring other engineers.
