Siemens is seeking to recruit a highly qualified and motivated finite
element analysis (FEA) engineer to join its Development Support team.
In particular, the engineer will demonstrate experiences using finite
element methods to model electromagnetic systems. This position will
report to the Senior Manager, Development Support.
Development Support provide high level support that helps ensure the
transfer of technical knowledge and expertise between Product
Development and the rest of the company.
Development Support engineers are required to work closely with
software developers as new versions of STAR-CCM+ are developed to help
ensure new features of the code are well understood. In particular,
emphasis is given to demonstrating the use of newly implemented
software features and their functionalities. In addition, verifying
new features behave as their designs intend.
Development Support engineers liaise with teams worldwide to provide
advanced technical solutions that help ensure end user issues are
answered and fixed in a prompt manner and software products are used
correctly, to their maximum potential.
The FEA engineer will have a high-level understanding of finite element
analysis for computer aided engineering and simulation. The FEA
engineer will demonstrate experiences using finite element analysis to
model real-world engineering applications. In particular, emphasis is
given to electromagnetics for e-mobility applications and electric
machines. Application areas also include, but are not limited to,
solid mechanics for structural analyses, and viscoelastic/non-Newtonian
fluid flows for chemical processing. Additionally, the FEA engineer
will have a keen interest in understanding; heat transfer and fluid
flows for fluid-structure interactions; design optimisations, and cosimulation.
Other Responsibilities Will Include:
* Making sure newly implemented STAR-CCM+, FEA code developments are
well understood. Emphasis is given to demonstrating their industrial
application and functionalities throughout the development and release
