Location: Savannah
Job type: Contract/Locum
Contact: No Name
Category: Engineers
Applied Aerodynamics Engineer
Category:  Engineer
Type:  Long Term
Description:  Applied Aerodynamics Engineer

Location: Savannah, GA
Rate: $57.00 - $70.00/HR
Duration: Long Term contract

Unique Skills:
Solid knowledge of: 
-Fluid Mechanics and Numerical Methods in general 
-Applied Aerodynamics in particular, backed by applicable coursework or verifiable professional experience.

Verifiable experience in: 
-Solution of aircraft Aerodynamics problems, related to both low and high speed flight regimes 
-High-fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques to compute the external flowfield around aircraft configurations using Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) solvers, including: Generation of three-dimensional CFD meshes around complex bodies, using software such as: Gridgen, Pointwise, VGRID, ICEM-CFD, Star-CCM+, or equivalent Setup and running of high-fidelity CFD solver software, such as: USM3D, NSU3D, STAR-CCM+, Fluent, FUN3D, CFX, CFD++, OpenFOAM, or equivalent Post-processing and visualization of CFD flow solutions using software packages such as Tecplot, Fieldview, or equivalent 
-Experience with semi-empirical Aerodynamics methods to estimate impacts due to manufacturing discrepancies 
-Generation and manipulation of geometric models using high-end CAD software packages capable of complex surface representations, such as CATIA V5, Rhino or equivalent 
-Proficient in one or more programming languages to generate tools and scripts in support to the work. Options include (but not limited to): FORTRAN 90/95, C/C++, Matlab, Java, and Python 
-Good communication skills, including preparation and presentation of briefings on technical results for different levels within the organization and interaction with internal clients and suppliers 
-Ability to operate Unix and/or Linux operating systems 

Preferred Skills: 
-Experience in the application of numerical optimization techniques coupled with analysis codes to solve engineering design problems, with focus on Applied Aerodynamics 
-Wind-tunnel testing experience, particularly for aeronautical applications 
-Familiarity with Flight Test methods and processes 
-Familiarity with FAA 14 CFR, Part 25 regulations pertinent the certification of commercial aircraft 

Responsibilities include: 
- Execute analysis of Aerodynamics problems of interest for aircraft programs and internal clients using the appropriate combination of CFD, semi-empirical and experimental techniques and other supporting data. 

Tasks may include, but are not limited to: 
-Evaluation of the aerodynamic impact of off-tolerance manufacturing discrepancies on the outer surface of the aircraft. Collaborate with manufacturing and operations teams to solve issues and identify root causes. 
-Evaluation and comparison of aerodynamic configuration design alternatives, to support product development and design decision making 
-Generation of databases representing aerodynamic aircraft characteristics for a range of off-design flight conditions and states, as required by internal clients (e.g. Performance, Flight Dynamics and Loads) 
-Support to the fleet of aircraft in operation in the field, regarding aerodynamic discrepancies caused operational issues or incidents. Collaborate with Product Support and clients for resolution 
-Participate in the design process for aerodynamic surfaces, either for future programs or for modifications of current aircraft 
-Participate in the development of future Methods and Tools for use by the Applied Aero team 
-Produce report documents and presentations for internal clients, leadership and certification authorities as required 

Education and Experience Requirements:
Bachelor's degree in engineering, a related curriculum, or equivalent combination of education and experience sufficient to successfully perform the essential functions of the job. Five (5) years in the specific technical discipline or ten (10) years broad engineering experience in several technical disciplines with a Bachelor's degree. Experience credit will be considered for related advance degrees limited to 2 years for Master's Degree and 4 years for PhD in fields applicable to this job position.

Location  Savannah , GA
Minimum Experience (yrs):  5+
Required Education:  Bachelor's of Science
