Structural engineer specialising in finite element analysis


This professional calculates the resistance of structures and elements calculation used in the aeronautical field for aircrafts (wing load, etc.), of the aerostatic or parachute groups, etc, applying calculation techniques for finite elements. Carry out testing until obtaining the optimum solution, by using modelling instruments and model geometrization as a starting point, and in accordance with the type and properties of materials and elements, and environmental conditions. These techniques allows the calculation of force and possible deformation to which these complex structures will be subjected (non-flat and irregular structures). The calculation of structures with finite elements due to their transversal character can be applied in other areas of engineering and physics.


  • Analyse and study the relationship between Fluid Mechanics systems and the circulation of aerostats, parachutes and aircrafts in general. The NASTRAN software is often used, since it is one of strongest analytical tools that exist. Fluids Mechanics describes the behaviour of atmosphere flow around the aircraft, in hypothetical operational conditions.
  • Design systems based on the application of membranes, which allow the use of different properties, such as eg., permeability to flow.
  • Manage the establishment of material requirements.
  • With the assistance of NASTRAN simulation tools, generate various virtual prototypes and choose the most suitable one.
  • Take charge of the validation and correction of the designs that have been produced by means of various tests. And correctly document these tests.
