Bladed is the global industry-leading wind turbine design software used by wind turbine manufacturers, consultants, researchers and for certification. At the core of Bladed is its simulation engine which has been extensively validated against measured data from a wide range of turbines.
We are looking for an engineer with deep knowledge of structural and/or multibody dynamics, to focus on improving Bladed’s structural dynamics modelling, and collaborate with other structural dynamics experts in DNV and in the wider industry.
Example structural dynamics developments in the product roadmap include:
The successful applicant will have relevant experience from academia or industry to understand best practice in multibody dynamics and/or structural dynamics modelling, ideally in the context of wind turbines, aero-elastics or offshore structures. They will contribute to the method development for Bladed’s structural dynamics engine, and implement new features and improvements in C++ code.
The role will also involve other general analytical development activities in Bladed, in technical areas such as integrator methods, linearisation, mechanical systems, aero-elasticity and coupled system dynamics. The role includes working directly with customers and academics on theory and implementations.
Other key routine tasks include:
Today we have 20 engineering professionals blending physics and mechanics, software engineering, user experience and customer support. We are organised as multiple scrum teams with the majority located in UK (Bristol) and with some developers in Denmark and Germany. For experienced applicants, this role is open to remote working within 2 hours of the UK time zone. Occasional travel to Bristol will be required.
