My client in the Blackwood area are looking for a graduate engineer with a good simulation background supported by a good engineering and practical aptitude. The ability to visualise problems and then express and investigate within a simulation package is vital. The person will have a wish to develop themselves in the job by applying their current knowledge to a practical work environment and building upon it to benefit both the individual and the business. To achieve this, the individual will need to marry their design & simulation skills to component testing and be willing to learn and contribute ideas for the early validation of design and process. Key knowledge / skills - A good mechanical engineering degree (or similar field). - FEA knowledge is advantageous - Good knowledge of fluid mechanics and CFD would be advantageous. - Good general computing skills including visual basic. Responsibilities - Working as a team member within the Product Development unit. This area covers New Product Design and Development, Simulation, Prototype and Test. - Simulation - The simulation of mechanical behaviour of the components, using Ansys (static, modal vibration, linear and plastic, transient) - Use macros driving Ansys to support application engineering work for customers. - Use CFD to simulate hot gas and liquid flow in heat exchangers and other fluid transfer components. - Use of CAD and Ansys to generate models for simulation. - Interpretation of experimental performance data to aid prediction and correlation. - Design work - Using SolidWorks generate 3D models of New Product Concepts - 'Hands on' - Lead in test set up and iteration especially with multi-axis testing. General - o Write reports with developed conclusions based on simulation and / or test results. - o Support design decisions for new products based upon simulation and test results.
