A CFD Analysis Engineer performs a wide variety of simulations. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models are utilized to directly impact engine design for cooling, lubrication, and ventilation systems. Additionally, conjugate heat transfer simulations are utilized to predict engine, exhaust and turbocharger temperatures and heat rejection, including underhood simulations to predict engine component temperatures. Development of new and existing procedures in the above domains is also a core responsibility.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop rocket engine component CFD models based on interaction with the design and engine system analysis team
  • Use CFD to support test activities
  • CFD simulations
  • Lead or assist in the development or enhancement of standard analysis procedures and/or tools to improve prediction, fidelity and/or execution speed
  • Build and exercise analytical models for internal combustion engines using 3D CFD software such as STAR-CCM+, Fluent or similar tools
  • Document and communicate analysis results to the team
  • Develop best practices for analysis methods
  • Provide guidance to design engineers to improve the performance of designs
  • Provide accurate and detailed reports of CFD results.Ensure that product design and performance meets technical and functional requirements.
  • Aid in development of new method and technology for CFD analysis.

Job Requirements


  • BS or MS in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering with coursework in heat transfer and fluid mechanics preferred


  • 2+ years of experience with CFD analysis of propulsion related systems
  • Experience with STAR-CCM+ or Fluent CFD software and optimization tools
  • Experience with programming in Java, Python or equivalent languages
  • Experience with turbomachinery and internal flow CFD simulations

Personal skills

  • High level of interpersonal skills to work independently and effectively with others
  • High level of oral and written communication skills
  • High level of analytical ability where problems are unusual and difficult
