Principal Engineer – Pipe Stress – Barrow-in-Furness – 12 Months - £48.00 p/hr. LTD|
Degree qualified in Mechanical Engineering, or equivalent. Ideally Chartered Engineer status but consideration given to equiva
Purpose of Role:
• The structural engineering team is responsible for the submarine structural design including its response to static and shock loading. The group have design technical authority for all primary structures but also offer stress and design analysis service to other platform systems teams (mechanical and propulsion etc.) who require substantiation of system components and assemblies. This includes pipe stressing and analysis of other components in piping systems.
• Undertake substantiation of submarine piping systems using to required design codes which will generally be ASME B31.1, ASME III Div. 1, Class 1 & 2 or ASME VIII.
• Analysis of pipe systems by hand calculations, PSA5 proprietary software and if appropriate, Finite Element Analysis.
• Specify and analyse all types of pressure parts and pipe system components operating at high temperatures including connections, flanges, tees, reducers, welded joints etc. undertaking fatigue and fracture assessments as necessary.
• Design of pipe supports to ASME III Div. 1 NF.
• Interaction with and provision of guidance information to submarine spatial and system design teams.
• Degree qualified in Mechanical Engineering, or equivalent. Ideally Chartered Engineer status but consideration given to equivalent significant experience.
• Previous experience in a Lead or Principal Pipe Stress analysis role.
• Knowledge and experience undertaking design code assessments to industry and internationally recognised codes, ideally ASME B31.1, ASME III Div. 1, Class 1 & 2 and ASME VIII.
• Familiarity with safety case regimes and justification would be an advantage.
• Experienced user of pipe stress analysis programmes. Ideally this would be PSA5 but experience of similar proprietary analysis programmes such as ADLPipe, CAESAR etc. is required which would indicate the candidate could make an easy transition to us of PSA5.
• Experience with hand calculation and direct stress analysis methods.
• Capability and experience assessing system components using Finite Element Analysis (PATRAN, ABAQUS or similar) would be an advantage as would any experience of associated explicit analysis areas such as heat transfer problems, fatigue and fracture fitness-for-purpose assessments (using R6 or Crackwise).
