Graduate of a Master of Sciences, I’m an engineer specialised in Structural Mechanics such as the ones found in aeronautics.
I've gained a overall understanding of the industry and applied research. I studied material shaping processes and stepped in mechanical design. I also developed transverse skills when I sold electrohydraulic systems for British and Irish customers during my previous position.
Hydrokit UK (supplier of electrohydraulic systems in the UK and Eire)
to December 2016
Developed B2B sales in mobile hydraulics in the UK and Eire.
Retailed components (motors, valves, fittings, workshop equipment, etc.) and looked for spare part replacements.
Designed electrohydraulic systems along with design department (power packs, control boxes, proportional spool valves, hydrostatic transmissions, multiple gear pumps, auxiliary lines, power take-offs, etc.)
Hydrokit (supplier and manufacturer of electrohydraulic systems)
to April 2015
3-month training at the headquarters prior to expatriation to the subsidiary based in the UK.
Hydrokit are specialised in the supply and design of electrohydraulic systems for mobile equipment. Hydrokit belongs to the Vensys Post-Equipment group which also include:
■ Hydrokit UK (UK subsidiary based in Woodbridge).
■ Rau Serta (German subsidiary based in Stuttgart).
■ Sofydra (dealt suppliers based in Eastern Europe).
and for specific requirements:
■ Soerma TP (implements for construction machinery: earth-moving, demolition, long reach, material handling, etc.)
■ ASE based in Agen (forestry machinery).
Validated Python scripts to post-process local landmark element on Abaqus/Explicit.
Simulated compression of orthotropic rubber samples reinforced with metal rods on Abaqus/Standard.
Provided expertise in numerical simulation using Abaqus.
MFP Michelin are a worldwide leader in tyre manufacturing. The project took place on their Research and Development centre based near their test tracks where experiments are conducted.
MFP Michelin develop their own numerical solving algorithm to simulate complex tyre mechanisms. They also perform specific simulations thanks to the explicit solver integrated to Abaqus for:
■ Dynamic solicitations.
■ Finite strain deformations (hyper-elastic behaviour of the rubber).
■ Advanced contact modelling.
Clément Ader Institute (research lab in material shaping processes, Mines d'Albi-Carmaux Graduate School)
to December 2012
Identified chemical, thermal and rheological constitutive models with global non-linear optimisation on Scilab.
Simulated preheating and filling of highly-reinforced thermosetting materials with mid-long discontinuous fibres (reshaping of epoxide resin / carbon fibre prepreg remnants with metallic inserts) on Moldflow Insight.
Simulated moulding process (curing, injection, cooling and mechanical behaviour).
Conducted statistical analysis and extrapolated manufacturing parameters.
Highlighted process enhancements on aeronautical parts (secondary structures).
Studied non-linear global optimisation methods.
Formulated constitutive models.
The project was carried out in partnership with Equip'Aero at the Clément Ader Institute based at the Mines d'Abli-Carmaux high-school. Researches in plastic and metallurgical shaping processes are conducted at their lab.
The process consisted in moulding 3D thick parts with uncured prepreg remnants (woven fibres bond with thermosetting material) and mechanical parts. The study was supervised by a PhD student in charge of the moulding of mechanical tensile specimens.
I analysed his results to model the material behaviour and simulate the whole process. The simulations helped him design cavities to mould industrial parts and conduct more advanced characterisations.
Supervised maintenance traceability of the bogie drive axles.
Replaced defective parts (needle bearings, seals, bolts, etc.)
Performed ultrasound non-destructive experiments on sumps.
The SNCF maintenance site is specialised in:
■ Interior design coach innovation.
■ Annual operating maintenance of the motives (replacement of wear parts, etc.)
Moreover, additional maintenance works are carried out every year (approximately a million of km service):
■ Passenger trains are renovated.
■ Locomotives are completely disassembled and refurbished on.
