Participates in the general Finite Element design analysis of new and existing construction products. Performs modeling and simulation support for vibration/fatigue on various structural components for construction equipment products. Develops Finite Element simulation models using Hyperworks, Abaqus, and nCode for the evaluation of engineering designs. Makes recommendations to peers and direct manager based on sound engineering principles, practices and judgment pertaining to fatigue/vibration problems as a contribution to the overall engineering and manufacturing objectives. Develops specific project planning that includes project objectives, deliverable, budget, resources, milestones and project timeline. Participates in meetings with project engineer and platform managers to understand the analysis, specifications and objectives of a project. Travels to other sites of the company to provide engineering support and participate in testing to validate the simulation work. Proposes solution, assumes overall responsibility for the project and serves as the main contact person for the project updates. Remains current and well informed on FEA, Fatigue and Vibration methodologies and technologies germane to the company's industry through personal research, training and seminar participation. Maintains and consistently applies knowledge of current technology, procedures, and standards. Recommends updates to the methodology, procedures and standards for the improvement of department productivity and customer satisfaction. Applies knowledge gained through Training on Fatigue, Simulation procedures for efficient modeling. Updates the standard documentation to perform design analysis and simulation. Develops and authors the standard documentation to perform design analysis and simulation. May serve as Lead Engineer. May coordinate the activities of other engineers, contractors and vendors as needed. Establishes and maintains a detailed work breakdown and schedule for portions of FEA projects involving Skid Steer Loaders and Dozers. Works with the managers and development team to determine the contents of milestones and incorporate this data into the schedule.
Required: Bachelor's degree in Mechanical or Civil Engineering and five (5) years of progressive post-baccalaureate experience as an Engineer. In lieu of a Bachelor's degree and five years of experience, the employer will accept a Master's degree in Mechanical or Civil Engineering and three (3) years of experience as an Engineer. Employer will accept any suitable combination of education, training and experience equivalent to a Bachelor's degree and five years of experience or a Master's degree and three years of experience. As part of the experience being required, applicants must have had: experience in analyzing, reviewing and approving designs of welded and cast structural components or modification of components to ensure conformance with engineering design and performance specifications; experience in implementing structural analysis techniques, including classical or Finite Element stress analysis, fatigue, vibration, test signal analysis and / or statistics for heavy construction machinery, including skid steer loaders, dozers, and tractor loader backhoes; experience in performing linear and non-linear structural analysis of vehicle structures and components, including contact analysis and bolt pre-tension analysis subject to static and dynamic loadings; experience with ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structures) and FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structures) analysis of skid steer loaders, dozers and tractor loader backhoes using Abaqus Implicit and Explicit; experience in performing frequency modal analysis of construction equipment exhaust components, including after treatment systems (ATS) and SCR mufflers of dozers and tractor loader backhoes, and in correlating the analysis with test data; experience in performing forced response analysis of various structural components of construction equipment, including skid steer loaders, and in correlating the analysis with test data; experience in developing testing requirements and correlating test data with FEA results to ensure that structural system components meet specifications; experience in the implementation of efficient structural design concepts in consultation with product groups to determine the best design alternatives; experience in developing Finite Element models and in performing calculations to analyze and determine structural integrity, system loads and fatigue life with sound engineering judgment and procedures; and experience working with and supporting cross functional teams related to product, analysis, and design.
