Senior flow simulation engineer, Volvo GTT Powertrain Engineering
We are now looking for a new employee in the area of flow simulations for Powertrain Engineering. We are developing new high efficient engines with world class fuel efficiency. Do you want to join us in creating Engineering excellence through simulations?
The group System Analysis & Simulation of consists of 12 simulation engineers within the areas; 3D CFD analysis, 1D flow system analysis and Virtual Engine simulations. The overall mission for our simulations is to minimize fuel consumption (CO2) and emissions and improve features and quality.
What do we do:
Our flow simulation engineers perform different kinds of simulation like gas exchange simulations, 3D CFD simulations, coolant system analysis, oil system analysis, spray analysis, etc. Our main tools are GT-Suite, StarCCM+ and Matlab. We analyse the simulation results, recommend improvements and design solutions, perform concept studies, present the results to the internal customers. We work in teams to cooperate with other simulation engineers for exchange of simulation results as input to their simulations or to get input to your simulation.
Some example of tasks in our team are: exhaust gas flow simulation for performance, engine Brake studies, fuel efficiency analysis, valve system selection, turbo matching, heat management analysis for minimizing emissions, performance concept studies, coolant flow design optimization for efficient thermal management, support other simulation activities with data and results. The results should be well communicated to contribute to system and component development and recommendations for project studies and evaluations. All simulations are documented with engineering reports. You should also continuously contribute to improvements of our simulation methods.
What will you do:
We expect you to have good theoretical knowledge in fluid mechanics (Master of Science in Engineering or equivalent), experience in 1D flow system simulations or experience from powertrain fundamentals and combustion. Programming skills in Matlab, Simulink, or Python is beneficial.
We think that you are an analytical person with a strong ability to work in cross functional teams as well as being able to work independently. You need to be good in communication, have a structured way of working and good documentation skills. We would also like you to be committed, driven and engaged to be able to contribute to our future development.
You need to be proficient in English (written and spoken) and basic knowledge in Swedish is preferable.
What can we offer you?
We offer a great place to grow within an exciting and global working environment.
We recognize the importance of valuing diversity as a key to our current and future business success. You will get the opportunity to interact with highly committed colleagues from different cultures. Trust, passion, performance, change and customer success are key values for us. We hope you will learn as much from us as we will from you.
