Over deze vacature

As a CFD Engineer you are responsible for specifying and delivering high level solutions for complex mechatronic systems and modules. The goal is to enable functional integration of gasflow architecture in our systems. Your challenge will be to integrate (new) functionalities against cost effective engineering solutions.


Your main tasks are related to the development process, this includes:

  • Feasibility phase; study the Customer Requirements Specifications (CRS) and investigate the feasibility of flow (and also thermal) concepts
  • Definition Phase; come up with Description of System Design Requirements and Specifications (SDS).
  • System Design Phase; generation of system design concepts
  • Come up with well-considered choices, validated against system requirements. Review designs (e.g. via FMEA) with internal and external customers
  • Perform detailed thermal/flow and/or CFD analysis and define measurement setup for function verification
  • System Verification; verification of design and chosen concepts on the specified and agreed requirements
  • Contribute to system roadmaps on flow aspects
  • Participate in further development of needed critical (gas) Flow & Temperature control competences
