HELLO

my name is

ALDIN DELIC

Profile

 

Professional, highly qualified Engineer with excellent organisational and team working skills. Ideal candidate for position requiring drive, initiative, responsibility and challenge. 

Profession

I have been working as a researcher at Swerim (previously Swerea KIMAB) since 2009. Most of my work has been in the field of finite element computation. I have been involved in various national and international projects where my computations and analysis have been great aid in different research fields. I have also been directly consulting companies and helped them with product and production process verifications. 

 

The finite element computations and analysis have mostly been performed with ABAQUS and LS-DYNA. However I do have a great interest in free and open source software, FOSS, and in particular computation solvers like CalculiX and Code_Aster. I have been teaching computation engineers from the industry in this area in order to spread the knowledge and to widen the use of FOSS.

 

Coding, or scripting, has become one of my skills which I often use as a complementary to the FEA. I have developed a great interest in Python and I use Pandas, SciPy and Matplotlib at regular basis.

 

Personal

I have always enjoyed sketching and painting. My Bachelor degree is a combination of mechanical engineer and industrial designer. However I have so far only used the design part at personal level. I have a website where I post my paintings made with FOSS, mostly Krita:  www.artinlinux.com
