Internal Liquid/Gas Flow Manager

East Hartford, CT
Business Unit Pratt & Whitney Job ID 57881BR Date posted 12/13/2017 City East Hartford State Connecticut

The Mechanical Systems, Externals and Nacelles (MSEN) Module Center is looking for a Manager for an internal flow modeling team. This newly created team will have responsibility of modeling internal flows of air, oil and air-oil mixtures using state of the art CFD based tools, and will also create reduced-order models from those analyses for use in other areas of the MSEN design and analysis activities.

Responsibilities will include identification and hiring of additional talent for the team to meet staffing needs, development of standard engineering analysis processes using these tools, and integration of the internal flow discipline into the design process for MSEN, focusing primarily on bearing compartments and oil system behavior. Working to identify development needs for tools, methods and research with the United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) will also be required.

A candidate must have experience in two-phase liquid/gas, non-reacting flows. Experience with high speed flows is a plus. Experience with existing CFD platforms such as Star-CCM and Fluent is required. Fluent is the current tool of preference. Some experience with integration between 3D and 1D system modeling would be preferential, experience with heat transfer between liquid-gas flows and hardware would be beneficial.

Daily responsibilities for the manager would be to plan and coordinate execution of tasks with MSEN's program customers, potentially working across all engine programs at Pratt & Whitney. Working with other disciplines including hardware design, structural analysis, component analysis for bearings, gears and seals, and other engine modules such as the compressor, combustor and turbine will be expected.

Strong communication skills and leadership experience are required.
