- Ensuring all applicable codes and standards, such as ASME, API, ISO, etc., are satisfied.
- Conducting engineering analysis and calculations to define and optimise all critical design parameters for duty specification and ensure consistency throughout the gas process loop and all operation scenarios.
- Writing and presenting project development status updates to stakeholders as needed.
- Conducting aerothermal design by applying fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer principles.
- Performing one, two and three-dimensional turbine aerothermal design and analysis through first principles.
- Preparing aerothermal methods and process developments.
For success in this role, you will need
- Minimum of bachelor’s degree in degree in mechanical or aerospace engineering (preferably a higher degree).
- 5 to 10 years of experience in thermal analysis and secondary flow systems in turbomachinery design support and assessment.
- Detailed knowledge of heat transfer physics, including advection, convection and radiation modelling.
- Ability to interpret thermal results into engineering design practices.
- Communication and Presentation, with good written and report writing skills.
- Experience in turbine aerothermal design and analysis through first principles, using tools such as Patran PThermal, Ansys ICEM, Fluent and Star CCM.
Additionally, you will benefit from
- Experience in aerothermal design and analysis of core engine components, including compressor, combustor, and Turbine.
- Combined CFD/Thermal/Stress conjugate heat transfer analysis
- Experience in high-temperature thermal modelling gas turbine components.
- Experience in support and development programs on instrumentation requirements, test planning, and pre and post-test activities and reporting.
- Professionally registered with a relevant engineering institution, preferably at or working towards Chartered Engineer status.
Coolbrook, we are passionate about building teams where unique perspectives and
backgrounds are valued and where everyone feels equally included.
