Job Description:

Position Overview

The STAR-CCM+ team is seeking a motivated developer to contribute to

the development of the STAR-CCM+ finite element solid stress solver.

Finite element development is a relatively new extension of STAR-CCM+

multi-physics solver family. The traditionally finite volume centric

code is being extended to allow optimal discretizationfor solid

mechanics, computational electromagnetics and complex polymeric fluids.

This means new challenges, frequent enhancement and re-architecture of

established solver components towards efficient finite element support.

The primary goal of the development is to expand the modeling

capabilities and support natively such challenging application as fluid

structure interactions and coupling to the rest of STAR-CCM+ physics



The primary responsibilities include but are not limited to:

* Design and development of component for solid stress finite element

solver including:

- Contact modeling

- Fluid-solid coupling

- Shell and beam modeling

- Efficient linear solvers and preconditioners

* Interaction with other STAR-CCM+ teams

* Work in large, geographically distributed teams

Required Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience

A suitable candidate is expected to have:

* Masters, PhD or equivalent degree in mechanical engineering, applied

math or computer science

* Proven strong C++ development skills

* Experience in large-scale software development

* Demonstrated knowledge of algorithms and techniques used in finite

element simulations

* Good working knowledge of finite element solid stress numerical


* Excellent communication skills

* Experience with modern CPU optimization, vectorization and GPU

programming is a plus
