Position Summary

In the Project Structural Engineer and Stress Analyst position you will work in a fast-paced environment and perform structural analysis using hand calculations and finite element analysis (FEA) on a wide variety of highly loaded subsea structure such as ROV frames, mechanisms, pressure vessels, ship over-boarding equipment, and advanced development projects. You will work with designers from a program's initial stages through structural testing and completion, influence load path, and ensure structural integrity. The work spans static and dynamic studies, performing linear and non-linear structural analysis including transient shock, fatigue and fracture, bolt and weld analysis, defining load tests, and documentation.

Applicant must be a US citizen and have the capability to obtain a security clearance. Applicants with Top Secret/SCI with CI poly are preferred.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • Develop load cases and quantify loads for primary and secondary structures.
  • Perform initial sizing of conceptual structure.
  • Perform static analysis using industry standard methods (Bruhn, Roark, Shigley).
  • Perform stress analysis by developing, solving, and post processing large FEA models using ANSYS.
  • Possess an understanding of converting complex systems into simplified FEA.
  • Participate in design reviews.
  • Properly document analysis.
  • Additional duties as assigned.


    • Bachelor's degree in mechanical, ocean, or aerospace engineering from an ABET accredited program.
