Job Description

As a Simulation and Modelling Engineer with experience of CFD and aerodynamics, as well as Ansys Fluent and aerospace / wind tunnel testing, you can make an immediate impact for my client by joining a team responsible for the performance of the Hose & Drogue Air-to-Air Refuelling systems and the Weapons Carriage & Release systems. These systems can include hydromechanical, electromechanical and software subsystems.

Using a combination of industry standard and internally developed tools, the team provides support to the current products and is heavily involved in R&D to help shape future products. Our capability to model Hose & Drogue refuelling is world leading and strives to reduce development and customer flight test costs.
Your experience in Simulation and modelling would prove a valuable asset to my corporate client in the Aerospace industry.

You will have the opportunity to work alongside leading thinkers in the industry at a company renowned for cutting edge technologies and innovative solutions. A corporate benefits package and transparent career development opportunities are on offer within this vibrant Engineering environment.

About the job:

The client currently requires a Simulation & Modelling Engineer to work as part of the Simulation & Modelling team. The job will involve;
*Modelling of products at all stages of the life cycle from concept through to in-service.
*First principle hand calculations up to complex cosimulations of multiple integrated systems.
*Real-time, hardware-in-the-loop and software-in-the-loop modelling.
*Integration with customer and supplier models.
*Component, system, ground and flight test support.
*Detailed analysis of large data sets to confirm performance, validate models and solve problems.

About you:

As a Simulation and Modelling Engineer your skills and qualifications will ideally include:
*A Phd in Aerodynamics or similar Aerospace/Physics discipline OR a Masters in the same fields with several years industry experience is expected
*Experience using Ansys Fluent in a post graduate or industry environment is expected ideally used in wind tunnel testing.

*Experience modelling bluff body and transient external aerodynamics in Ansys.
*Experience modelling high-speed short-duration dynamics of pneumatic systems with Dytran, LS Dyna or another tool - desirable.
*Experience modelling impact dynamics such as bird strike, crash tests or drop tests with Dytran, LS Dyna or another tool - desirable.
*A strong understanding of engineering subjects including solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, control theory and aerodynamics.
*The ability to understand and analyse complex technical problems.
*Drive and enthusiasm.
*Self-motivation and problem solving ability with excellent attention to detail.
*Excellent interpersonal, reporting and presentation skills.
*A desire to learn and develop.
