Engineering interview questions

Post by star spangled hat » Wed Jul 03, 2019 8:45 am

Hi guys, I have an interview to do design engineering at a small ski company near me. For the engineering portion of the interview, I’m trying to brain storm any questions that might be thrown my way that I should study up on in advance. What are some engineering questions you could see coming up in an interview setting?

Have u fea modeled a tapered multi composite laminate structure to determine load/deflection and failure points?
Aka have u designed a ski and tested it in a simulation?
Do u know the harmonic frequencies associated with ski damping?
Do u understand strength and stiffness weight ratios and janka hardness for different wood species as well as resin to composite ratios in wet layup compression molding?

I could go on for days but im hungry now.

Hows ur solid works?

Have you encountered a problem making your own skis? If so, how did you fix it?
