Description of the job :
Are you looking for a final year project? Would you like to discover the work of a Design Engineer? Then apply now! We look forward to you joining us at the Wide Body Doors department.

Location: Hamburg
Start: November 2019

During Installation of passenger doors onto airplane fuselages there are quite restrictive requirements regarding gaps and steps. Such gaps and steps on the loft of the airplane are relevant contributors to parasitic drag and noise in the cabin. The necessary adjustments on today’s passenger doors are relatively time-consuming and cumbersome, partly due to the applied design principles for the coupling between door and door hinge. Objective of this master thesis is the development of a coupling between door and door hinge that allows a stepless and simplified adjustment. Hereby the currently valid requirements for certification and available design space for a potential application on existing door systems shall be considered.

Task & accountabilities :
- Description and comparison of existing passenger door systems with special focus on door adjustment (state of technology)
- Creation of a requirement catalogue for the design principle to be developed
... under consideration of physical/technical, production, economic and ergonomic requirements
- Derivation of relevant functions from the requirement catalogue
- Development of design solutions for derived functions with systematic evaluation
- Creation of the space allocation model (CAD) of favorite design solution
- Pre-sizing of key components of chosen design solution
- Final evaluation of developed design principle with regards to requirement fulfillment
- Conclusion and outlook

Required skills :
You offer:
- Enrolled Master Student (d/m/f) within Aerospace/Mechanical Engineering or similar field of study
- Basic knowledge of CAD and FEM is required
- English: fluent

You are a good team player, have excellent communication skills, and are able to work independently.

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.
