Description of the job
Are you looking for a Bachelor / Master Year project? Would you like to discover the work within Structural Health Monitoring? Then apply now! We look forward to you joining us at Airbus Defecen and Space.
Start: Autumn 2018
Duration: 6 months
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses technologies to monitor the structural health of selected components using permanently applied sensors. The investigated SHM method uses PZT-Transducers to generate and measure Guided Waves propagating in structural components. Within this Thesis, the Guided Wave based SHM method shall be examined using state of the art simulation technologies (e.g. FEM). To decrease the overall amount of testing, a simulation model shall be developed to simulate the propagation of Guided Waves in structural components, instead of using time consuming and expensive experimental testing methods.
Tasks & accountabilities
Your exciting topic:
· Literature survey: Guided Wave simulation methods
· Review and Benchmark of existing SHM simulation technologies
· Simulation of guided wave propagation (e.g. FEM) for isotropic plates (Aluminium) and composite plates
· Generation of simulation model
· Simulation of Guided Wave propagation
· Evaluation and documentation of simulation results
· Validation of simulations by experimental testing
· Documentation of results
This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company's success, reputation and sustainable growth.
· Enrolled student (m/f) within Simulation Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering/Avionics or similar field of study
· Practical Experience within Information Systems
· Know-How about Finite Element Method
· English / German: negotiation level
You are a good team player, have excellent communication skills, and are able to work independently.
