Job Description:

As an electric aviation startup, we believe in making the world a better, cleaner, and more connected place. We believe in the potential of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft to lead us to our vision. We are designing our next generation eVTOL and growing our team of world class aviation professionals. We are seeking a self-driven, passionate, and experienced CFD engineer to join our team.Responsibilities:

  • Plan and execute all aspects of eVTOL CFD analysis in different flight conditions between hover and cruise through transition
  • Generate CFD meshes and perform both steady and unsteady CFD analysis using standard commercial tools (e.g., Fluent, StarCCM+) and/or government tools (Fun3D, OverFlow)
  • Conduct CFD analysis to support optimum aerodynamic design
  • Generate aerodynamic data to compare with lower and medium fidelity analysis, flight test data and wind tunnel data for validation
  • Generate aerodynamic loads for structural design and aeroacoustics analysis
  • Support aerodynamic analysis using lower and medium fidelity tools as well as subscale modeling, testing and analysis Requirements:
    • Strong understanding of rotary-wing and fixed-wing aerodynamics
    • Strong understanding of fluid dynamics and CFD (RANS, uRANS, LES)
    • Expertise in using at least one of the standard CFD solvers (Fluent or StarCCM+)
    • Experience processing data with python or MATLAB
    • Basic understanding of CAD software (preferably Catia or Solidworks)
    • Familiarity with aeroacoustics analysis
    • Comfortable with hands-on calculations for quick analysis Qualifications:
      • Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a related field. PhD preferred.
      • 5+ years of experience modeling eVTOL, rotorcraft or interactional rotor-wing aerodynamics using blade resolved CFD as well as blade element or actuator disk methods. Preferred Skills:
        • Familiarity with government CFD software e.g., Fun3D or OverFlow
        • Familiarity with Lattice Boltzmann method
        • Familiarity with aeroelasticity and flutter analysis
        • Familiarity with low-fidelity methods like AVL, XFOIL, BEMT
        • Familiarity with medium fidelity potential flow based aerodynamic methods like lifting line and vortex lattice, free wake or vortex particle methods
        • Familiarity with software development best practices and version control (bitbucket, JIRA)
        • Familiarity with programming languages such as C, C++, Fortran
        • PhD focused on rotorcraft CFD applications
        • Wind tunnel testing experience is highly desired We welcome you to apply for this position even if you may not 100% satisfy all the requirements. We are looking for passionate individuals, who want to write the next chapter in electric aviation .
