VIEW JOBS 1/15/2022 12:00:00 AM 2022-04-15T00:00 Overview The VIRGINIA Class design program is entering a period of significant growth, with the NAVY seeking more and more capabilities for its in-service and under-development submarines. This includes upgrades and modernization of the existing fleet as well as Block V and Block VI new design efforts. D464 Pipe Stress is seeking multiple new engineers to support the upcoming VIRGINIA Class design effort. Pipe Stress Engineering: The D464 Pipe Stress engineering group is a highly technical, dynamic, and highly regarded group that supports all ship classes, both operational and new designs. For decades, Electric Boat's Pipe Stress group has been a center of excellence in the field of piping analysis, with unparalleled experience and capabilities anywhere else in the world. The Pipe Stress group has an experienced network of technical leaders ready to guide and develop less experienced personnel. D464 engineers will integrate into the project working groups, interfacing with internal and external customers including: project system engineers, structural engineers, acoustic engineers, designers, manufacturing engineers, shipyard construction trades, and Navy technical and program personnel to achieve program goals. Individuals should have a strong interest in performing detailed analyses with a solid academic background in the areas of statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, materials engineering, heat transfer, computational analysis methods (e.g., finite element), and computer programming. Key Responsibilities: The D464 pipe stress engineer has multiple responsibilities, with a primary focus on analysis of piping systems as well as supporting structure for pipe and ventilations systems on the VIRGINIA Class nuclear submarines and special projects. Items under the cognizance of the pipe stress engineer include supporting the preliminary system development studies as well as the development and the analysis of the piping fluid systems. Responsibilities include ongoing support and revision of the system analysis during design development. Additionally, the pipe stress engineer will review and approve the piping system and ventilation duct supports to ensure that designed supports properly support the fluid piping and ventilation systems. Other tasks include the development of special fittings to support the fluid piping and ventilation systems. Additional pipe stress engineer responsibilities include: * Performing detailed static and dynamic analyses of submarine and naval surface combatant piping systems using state-of-the-art computer codes * Support all new design work, new ship construction and operational fleet upgrades * Provide technical support to ensure piping system stress and related piping support requirements are met under a wide range of operational scenarios * Integration with the program team to ensure timely and accurate development of the fluid piping or ventilation system from concept phase to construction * Support of meetings for the review, development and approval of fluid system piping and support arrangements as well as ventilation support arrangements * The analysis of new pipe fittings or unique system support parts to ensure requirements are met The D464 pipe stress engineer will have significant opportunity for growth within the department. The new pipe stress engineer will be assigned a mentor and have senior technical leads from which to learn. Collaboration between engineers is necessary to complete all job assignments, and the department fosters a strong culture of collaboration and team building. Qualifications Required: * Bachelor of Science degree or higher in Mechanical, Aerospace, Civil, or Marine engineering by June 2021 * 0-9 years related experience Skills * A demonstrated ability to independently facilitate problem solving * A strong desire to work as part of a team to achieve aggressive goals * Excellent verbal and written communication skills * Strong interpersonal and organizational skills * A demonstrated ability to manage one's own time Electric Boat New London CT
