The Diesel Combustion and Fuel Modeling Engineer is responsible for investigating, incorporating and developing diesel CFD models and the use of those models to optimize combustion systems.
Model development will focus on the development of methods to efficiently and accurately model part-load operation, oxygenated fuels and LLFC in a diesel engine.
The engineer will use those models to optimize a combustion system to take advantage of the fuel to achieve non-sooting diesel combustion or LLFC.
The engineer will also regularly interface with University researchers and incorporate proposed models from the University as appropriate.
The engineer will need to summarize findings through presentations, quarterly reports, technical reports and publications. The position also requires creativity to identify and file invention disclosures on new intellectual property that enable combustion improvements.
The engineer must also coordinate with single-cylinder engine testing activities, which are integrated into the Diesel Combustion Research team and will participate in the LLFC project.
Working knowledge of internal combustion engines. Understanding of diesel engines. Fundamental understanding of thermodynamics, combustion, fluid flow, and heat transfer. Understanding of CFD models and their use.
