80% - Perform aerothermal and fluids modelling and analysis of liquid rocket engines and/or other defense & space systems . Analysis is performed using in-house and COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) heat transfer and thermal analysis tools such as ANSYS, Thermal Desktop, SINDA/FLUINT, etc. and various meshing tools. Duties may also include test support for pre and post-test analysis for model validation.
Support programs across the enterprise for complex analyses requiring advanced aerothermodynamics and fluid dynamic tools when programs have difficult problems that need to be resolved in a timely manner. Apply specific expertise and knowledge to provide technical solutions to complex, difficult problems that do not lend themselves to be solved by 1-D or other simplified techniques. Formulate an approach for such problems so that they can be understood and worked upon by more junior staff. Design and support verification tests of propulsion systems and components. Develop test systems and strategies, specify instrumentation and analyze test results.
Contribute to the development of new practices, techniques, and standards. Perform as an emerging authority and possesses a comprehensive understanding of the general and technical aspects of the job and its practical application to complex problems and situations.
10% - Produce thermal analysis reports and test reports. Make presentation of analysis results to both internal and external customers. Provide technical guidance to junior analysts.
10% - Support verification tests of propulsion systems and components.
-Demonstrated experience conducting steady-state and transient thermal analyses to support design, development and production qualification of new or updated products is required.
-Proficiency using finite element analysis tools such as ANSYS, SINDA/FLUINT, Thermal Desktop is required.
-Knowledge and experience with aerospace product development efforts is desired.
-Must have the ability to read and interpret engineering drawings.
-Proficiency in Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel and Power Point) is required.
-BS in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering, or Engineering Mechanics. At least 5 years of engineering experience related to heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid dynamics or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
-Master’s degree is preferred.
