Composite Engineer

Division : Airborne Oil & Gas
Education level : Master / WO
Location : IJmuiden
Specialism : Engineering

About the job
You carry out the engineering work to design fit-for-purpose Thermoplastic Composite Pipes (TCP) and all related equipment and ancillaries. 

You work in an innovative environment where you will use state-of-the-art software for virtual modelling of TCP, end-fittings and other equipment to determine strength, stiffness, failure modes and loads. Furthermore you will use and create advanced (material) models on different scales: ranging from micro-scale on fibre-matrix level, meso-scale for coupons up to macro-scale for TCP.

Main tasks:

  • Create Finite Element models of TCP, end fitting and equipment interacting with TCP
  • Perform stress analyses
  • Perform strength, fatigue and creep calculations
  • Perform failure predictions (for process quality testing and product qualification testing) and define test acceptance criteria
  • Define optimal TCP lay-up
  • Prepare design reports and product datasheets

This position also provides you the challenge to improve amongst others analyses time, accuracy of failure predictions and automated modelling. 

Skills and experience

  • Master or Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science or equivalent
  • At least 3 years of relevant working experience
  • Fundamental knowledge of composite properties, manufacturing methods, material modelling, constituent behaviour
  • Global understanding of composites, TCP behaviour, deck equipment, offshore installation and subsea engineering
  • Experience in strength and stiffness analysis (FEA) preferably Abaqus
  • Experience in engineering processes and documentation (reports, drawings, RCA)
  • Good communication and presentation skills
  • Good command of the English language (written & spoken) is essential. Dutch is advantageous.

Our offer

  • We offer you a role within a dynamic, growing and innovative company
  • You will work in a pleasant, open and challenging work place with enthusiastic colleagues
