As Senior Structural Analyst you will work in The Naval & Structural group which is part of the department Engineering. The team work on project base divided over the various projects, in which they contribute to both basic engineering and detailed engineering within their field of expertise. You will make a structural design completed with relevant structural calculations starting from proposal phase up to yard support and delivery of the vessel. From general construction plans up to detailed calculations and integrated foundations will be part of the job. Calculations aspects are strength, stiffness, vibrations, buckling, fatigue, military loads such as blast and signatures aspects (for example inboard- and underwater sound), producebility, maintainability, etc. If necessary, FEM calculations have to be applied.
As Senior Structural Analyst you will be responsible for the relevant project deliverables from class approval of the structure up to technical meetings with your colleagues and suppliers, class or client representatives. You will direct the structural engineers in modelling the structure in 3D-CAD ending up with checking drawings and production packages You can be asked to contribute in R&D initiatives on behalf of the Damen Naval structural analysis discipline if needed.
