Research Engineer - Sr. Research Engineer
Southwest Research Institute Who We Are:
The Computational Mechanics Section tests materials under extreme conditions (elevated temperatures, high pressures, large strains, high strain-rates). The data are used to create sophisticated computer models of interest for defense, aerospace, and hypersonics applications.
Objectives of this Role:
*Perform experimental and computational analysis of mechanical deformation and material failure in support of impact physics, protection and space systems research. *Participate in individual and collaborative research projects as well as support promotional activities for research programs. *Interact with both commercial and government clients, manage tasks to successful completion within technical, budget, and schedule constraints under the direction of senior staff. *Through experiments and computations, develop understanding and models of impact events and develop methods to mitigate the effects or impacts. *Technical reports, presentations to clients, and submitting for journals.
Daily and Monthly Responsibilities:
*Computer simulations of materials under shock and impact. *Testing of materials with MTS, Hopkinson Bar, Plate Impact, ballistic impact, etc. *Develop algorithms in Matlab, Python, FORTRAN, or similar for high strain-rate applications. *Use of digital image correlation.
*Requires a PhD with a 3.20 GPA in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, or Nuclear Engineering *Strong background in or a strong interest in plasticity, continuum mechanics, or damage and failure mechanics *Ability to work in a team and good communications skills *0-5 years: Previous experience with computer codes applied to impact problems OR materials testing at quasi-static or high strain rates.
Applicant selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information. Applicant must be a U.S. citizen.

materials research engineer SHORT TIME FRAME
jacobs The job will involve continuing development of an improved adhesive liner system for Air Force ordnance. AFRL is helping characterize the mechanical properties of adhesive liner systems as well as investigating plasticizer migration, aging, and compatibility effects. Future efforts may include determination of ways to decrease hazards related to munitions sensitivity. Additionally, we have important work that involves characterization of tensile, shear, and interfacial properties for various solid rocket components.
