Responsibilities include building and conducting CFD analysis to predict performance of aerodynamic drag and convective cooling of heat exchangers, engine room and underbody parts. Candidate will also be responsible for summarizing and reporting the results, making recommendations to the functional groups and project management. Successful candidate should be capable to clean, mesh and separate geometry for proper CFD simulation volume meshing, as well as, utilize OpenFOAM and/or Star-CCM+ for simulation. Additional responsibilities will include coordinating schedules with project teams to make sure that the simulations results can be used to support design decisions and continually improving the modeling and analysis techniques to increase the correlation between experiment and simulation. Occasionally, this position may be required to support testing such as vehicle setup/preparation, wind tunnel/coast-down testing, and field test activities.
Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering and a minimum of 5 years directly related simulation experience or equivalent combination of education and experiencerequired. Knowledge of Aero and Thermal CFD simulation is required. Knowledge of the automotive development process is preferred. Proficient PC Skills (Excel, Word, PowerPoint and other technical software) and excellent communication/interpersonal skills required. Ability to travel and work overtime may be required.
