Job Information

G-TECH Services, Inc. CAE Engineer CFD in Dearborn, Michigan

Job Description

  • Provide support to global fuel system D&R engineers to reduce product development time and achieve fail proof/cost-effective design solutions through Thermal/CFD simulations and recommendations

  • Be able to carry out 3D CFD simulations and/or 1D flow/hydraulic simulations

  • Typical CFD/Thermal analyses that need support to involve: pressure drop/flow assessment in fuel systems, fuel tank filling and slosh analyses, flow through filter media, and thermal performance of fuel systems

  • Carry out an NVH risk assessment and analyze fluidic resonance frequency, mode shapes and frequency response of fuel distribution system

  • Collaborate with the core engineering team and develop simplified math models or tool to make designing and testing more efficient

  • Support Fuel Systems GPDS process and carry out CAE DV plan for vehicle programs

  • Interpret test/simulation results and explain their consequence on part functionality and performance to product engineer to assist the design and problem-solving process

  • Work with teams in other Clients departments: Thermal/Aero System Engineering (TASE), GEE and Research and Innovation Center (RIC)

  • Participate in developing new CAE methodologies tackling current and future design problems such as:

  • a) Freeze/thaw simulation for urea tanks

  • b) Utilize vehicle front end, under-hood and underbody thermal/flow fields leading to Fuel tank Temperature Profile (FTTP) assessment

  • c) Evaluate the need for thermal shield early in the design cycle

Skills and Experience Required

  • At least 2 years of experience in fuel system Thermal/CFD simulation required

Skills Preferred
