*Provide mechanical engineering expertise to a variety of projects in the development of products and equipment.
*Lead diagnostics efforts, perform methodical troubleshooting, and recommend mitigation measures. Reduce design and tooling iterations using predictive modeling and simulation.
*Mentor junior engineers and interns.
*Technical Environment: UGNX modeling, FEA modeling and analysis, ANSYS, ABAQUS.
*Analyze test results and the effect of material properties, geometry, and test conditions.
*Analyze the various mechanical load conditions on the antenna components.
*Work directly with customers, and internal teams to identify requirements, establish expectations, and meet agreed upon mechanical performance, and goals for projects.
*Enhance the various aspects of the mechanical design by conducting engineering simulations to with FEA structural and thermal analyses, and CFD thermal management analyses for electronics across global sites.
*Perform analysis on automotive antenna modules and radio suppression capacitors including:
oFEA modeling and analysis to simulate durability tests and automotive product performance in the areas: thermal shock, thermal cycling, shock force, vibration, water intrusion... etc.
oStructural FEA analysis on various material to understand stress distribution and verify sufficient strength under various load conditions, plastic parts to study deflection and snapping features, metallic sheet metal parts for conductivity and spring-back, gaskets and sealing mechanisms and fastening mechanisms.
oThermal/heat transfer FEA analysis on TCUs, antennas, and vehicle roofs
oVibration FEA analysis on brackets, suppression capacitor modules, and other products
oPerform assembly and tolerance analysis simulations on CAD models for assemblies.
oMold flow analysis on plastic injection molded parts.
oCurvature analysis for vehicle roofs
oGeometrical analysis on fastening mechanism and on assembly process
*Interpret analysis results with respect to results obtained by lab testing procedures, converting these results into practical design templates based on given geometry model, and providing structural support to the design team.
*Writing reports and preparing presentations for summarizing the analysis results and reviewing all project-related analysis results for ensuring the accuracy of project reports
*Utilize lessons learned and test results to recommend design improvements.
*Select materials to meet mechanical, environmental requirements while embodying the most cost-effective solutions possible.
*Adheres to quality and safety systems or maintenance of quality and safety standards.
Support manufacturing sites both remotely and on site when needed.
Visit Customer plants to take roof fit measurements and verify the antenna fit on vehicles
