Job Description Conversion
Conduct computational research and analysis involving the characterization or response of materials (metals, composites and other) and aerospace structures subjected to high-rate localized heating. Objects under study may be static or under dynamic loads involving sub-sonic and supersonic flight or space environment with orbital thermal cycling. Computational techniques may involve classical finite-element or finite-difference, hydrodynamic methods, particle methods, fluid-dynamic methods, or couple fluid-structural interactions. Develop pre-test predictions, compares predictive models with experimental results and helps specifies experimental requirements. Frequent use and application of technical standards, principles, theories and techniques. Works under general supervision and contributes to project milestones. Relate well with other people, contribute to small research teams. Participates in the preparation of presentations and reports describing research findings.
Who We Are:
Ball Aerospace-Ts Albuquerque office, located near Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico, has been conducting leading edge research for the Air Force Research Laboratory for over two decades. Our research is leading the way to define the requirements and advance the technology for future Air Force systems in the Directed Energy and Space Vehicles directorate. Our success is built on interdisciplinary teams of scientists and engineers working together with our clients to solve complex and exciting research challenges.
