The engineer in this role will be responsible for delivering priorities of Aerodynamics Geometry and Fan & Compressor Airfoil Tools and Methods.
Aero Geometry tools and method is a critical domain for GE businesses (Aviation, Power and Renewable). Geometry tools are used for design of Airfoils, Nacelles and many other turbomachinery components of Gas turbines and jet engines. NIGEL (Nacelle inlet gas exhaust lines) is one such geometry tool used to design Nacelles. NIGEL is an integrated framework that has capabilities for geometry creation of different components of Nacelle with customized GUI used by GE engineers for creation of geometry, 2D CFD analysis and writing outputs which can be used for 3D CFD analysis.
Also, Fan & Compressor airfoil are the key driver in engine performance. GE is a pioneer in blade design and technology. In this role, engineer will get a unique opportunity to understand the complex interaction of mechanical loads, aero performance and material technology that are seen in the design process.
The engineer will also be responsible for further enhancing geometry tool’s capabilities as per business need and fix issues in it as reported by Nacelle and airfoil designers. This role also demands aero geometry tools code deployment, testing and detailed validation before newer releases. The tool owner must actively interact with all Nacelle and airfoil design engineers to understand the ask and must follow LEAN approach to eliminate waste as per business need. In addition to the above, this role also demands strong collaboration with aero designers (Nacelle as well as Airfoil) users to empowering them in resolving issues/challenge faced while using Aero Geometry and fan & Compressor tools.
The role demands understanding of gas turbine fundamentals, converting engineering requirements into software needs, and collaborating with the design and hardware engineers.
