These would include air flow and thermal management around the vehicle, in the engine, e-motor, battery systems as well as passenger compartment and underbody area. You will join a small team of engineers working in a fast-paced environment with short decision paths. As a person you work well both in teams and on your own, while being an energetic and adaptive person that contributes strong technical expertise to a fast-paced engineering team. You are ambitious, curious and have a genuine passion for technology and vehicles.

Responsibilities

  • CFD simulations to estimate heat rejection and determine air and water flow requirements for automotive type cooling systems.
  • Understand sizing an air conditioning system and determine cooling capacity required.
  • Evaluate passenger compartment comfort using CFD models.
  • Perform flow analysis of complete underhood geometries, cooling systems, e-motor, battery packs and electronics.
  • Develop methodologies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our thermal tools and workflow.
  • Clearly post-process and interpret simulation results to identify current performance and develop areas of improvement.
  • Communicate results, conclusions and provide insights for design changes.
  • Daily use of several commercial CFD codes, 1D solvers and supporting software in Windows, Linux/Unix and HPC environment.
  • Fully engage in vehicle development activity and proactively take ownership of simulation activity to best guide the design team.
  • Interaction with prototype/test teams, setting validation methods and parameters.
