This Statement ofWork (SOW) covers the need for the services of two students to provide technical and analytical support in the fields of Mechanical Engineering and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The ultimate purpose ofthis project is to evaluate energy savings, system reliability, and return on investment in support of the Data Center Cooling Distribution Efficiency project. The preference is for consideration of candidates in the Troops to Engineers program.
The contractor shall assist the work sponsor in:
- Reviewing, analyzing, and documenting experiments and approaches.
- Configuring, designing, exercising and conducting model configurations andsystem designs.
- Conducting literature searches and reviews, identifying next-set approaches,documenting findings and decision paths.
- Providing written summary and analysis of conference sessions to include drawing relevance to project applications.
- Monthly Status Reports and Bi-Weekly Time Reports shall be in accordance withbasic contract CDRL.
Due to the regulations established by the Department of Defense, only US Citizens may qualify.
