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 in Ansys is a must
- 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
o The simulation of mechanical behaviour of the components, using Ansys (static, modal vibration, linear and plastic, transient)
oUse macros driving Ansys to support application engineering work for customers.
o Use CFD to simulate hot gas and liquid flow in heat exchangers and other fluid transfer components.
o Use of CAD and Ansys to generate models for simulation.
o Interpretation of experimental performance data to aid prediction and correlation.
- 'Hands on'
o 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.
