Aerodynamic design and analysis of launch vehicle using low to high fidelity tools to estimate vehicle aerodynamic characteristics which includes external flow simulations, stage separation analysis.
Establish robust analysis methodologies using CFD coupled with in-house 6DOF model to study the safe stage separation of the launch vehicle using open source and commercial CFD tools.
Work with vehicle configuration team on various space launch vehicle development programs.
Strong system level thinking and ability to give design suggestion based on simulation results.
Produce high quality documentation of work assigned.
Preferred skills and experience:
Aerospace/Mechanical Engineer with minimum 2-3 years of relevant experience.
Strong fundamental understanding of aerodynamics and heat transfer for space vehicle applications.
Experience in store/stage separation analysis using opensource or commercial CFD tools.
Experience in opensource CFD tools like Open Foam or SU2 for external aerodynamics applications is desirable.
Hands on experience in complete CFD process (Pre-processing, Solver setup and Post processing) for external aerodynamics and heat transfer applications.
Experience in unsteady CFD – URANS and LES modelling
Extremely good at creating water-tight geometry and high-quality hybrid or structured meshes for external aerodynamics flow simulations using ANSYS-ICEMCFD or any meshing software.
Familiar with computational fluid dynamics software (CFD): Preferably ANSYS-Fluent/CFD or CFD++.
Proficient in any one of the programming languages such as MATLAB/Python/Shell to automate the work process and post processed data.
Experience in Linux environment with shell scripting.
Experience in aeroacoustics is desirable
Experience in wind tunnel experiments is desirable.
Experience in CAD modelling using Solid works or any design tool is desirable.
Ability to work independently with minimal supervision in a fast-paced, rapidly changing work environment.
