Aerospace Engineer (Hypersonic Aerodynamics)

Destinus SA
Date de publication


Job Description: The company is developing hypersonic vehicles for commercial transportation applications. We need engineers with hypersonic experience to support the design, analysis, and test of hypersonic vehicles. Work will focus on hypersonic aerodynamics, aeroheating, and non-linear aerodynamics at subsonic and supersonic speeds. The successful candidate should be able to use computational fluid dynamics modeling and simulation to generate aerodynamic and aeroheating loads for subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic vehicles.

Required Experience Level:
- The candidate would be expected to be able to perform CFD and signatures analysis with minimal supervision.
- The candidate should also grasp the big picture and make decisions about vehicle design with minimal supervision.
- The candidate should have 5+ years of experience or a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering (or similar) and 2-3 years of experience.

- Experience with subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic computational fluid dynamic models with software such as Cart3D, Kestrel, FUN3D, US3D, or equivalent is required.
- Knowledge of turbulence modeling and chemical equilibrium and non-equilibrium modeling is required.
- Experience with block-structured and unstructured gridding with software such as Pointwise or equivalent is required.
- Experience with differing levels of modeling fidelity (low, medium, high) and material response modeling (thermal, ablation, erosion, etc.) is desired.

Engineering Skills:
- Numerical gridding (Pointwise or similar)
- Scripting to enable numerical codes to communicate and to run in a batch fashion (Python, Matlab preferred)
- Computational fluid dynamics for subsonic/supersonic/hypersonic flows (Kestrel, FUN3D, or similar)
- Thermal response simulation (temperature, ablation, and erosion response)
- Post-processing CFD data
- Operating on supercomputing clusters

- Requires a B.S. in Aerospace, Mechanical, or similar discipline and 5+ years of experience in CFD or a Ph.D. with 2-3+ years of experience.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
