Analysis Engineer (1D - CFD) - New Engine - Ambitious Start-up

Ambitious advanced engineering start-up developing an innovative engine is seeking an Analysis Engineer (1D / CFD).

You will join a small dedicated in-house technical expert team, developing know-how and IP in unique aspects of the engine. The ‘Mule’ engine has been commissioned, and is now in development.

To support this, first class 1-D and 3-D thermofluid tools are needed, to predict thermodynamics, gas dynamics, fuel/air interactions and combustion; all validated against Mule prototype and rig data. This position will support a major program of tool development and concept exploration, followed by the execution of a program to production

Location can be flexible. Significant time can be spent working remotely with limited time spent on-site in West Sussex.

Responsibilities:

  • Definition, build and iteration of 1-d & 3-d CFD system simulation models
  • Model validation from test data
  • Defining and executing model optimisation tasks to support concepting and design
  • Supplying modelling results to other parts of the design and analysis process
  • Working with team and partners to develop technical solutions using the models
  • Developing “how-to” expertise in the modelling topic
  • Reporting of results of modelling; Model quality assurance and accuracy

The person:

  • Engineering graduate with 1-3 years’ experience of internal combustion engine 1-d & CFD simulation Fluent in thermodynamics, engine and engine systems technology and engineering
  • Experience of using GT-Power, WAVE and 3D CFD simulation is an advantage, experience of FEA also helpful but not essential
