Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary - on the ground, in the sky and in space.

Description of the job

The aim of this internship is to create an estimate reliability of a new structural modelling approach based on results provided by :

  • Current global approach (global finite element model)
  • Current local approach (virtual testing / refined finite element model)

and test results from certification campaign (A350 static cell test).

Internships at Airbus

Tasks & accountabilities

Be familiar with the existing models ( global and refined) by analyzing the numerical results
Correlation analysis from test results to identify strength and weakness of the 2 approaches
Create a derivative model from refined model allowing to assess the interest of a new approach limited to linear domain and including simplified structural parts modelling vs. refined model. A nonlinear exploration would be a plus

Required skills

- Material strength
- Numerical modeling
- Programming (Visual Basic)
- Hyperworks using as a plus
- ABAQUS using as a plus
- Autonomy, curiosity and innovation
