Job Description

Master Thesis: Multi-Disciplinary Optimization with focus on the aeromechanics design of an industrial last stage turbine blade

Join us on our journey into the future #FutureMakers#Siemens

Be part of an open and dynamic workplace where professional and personal development is high on the agenda. By making sustainable energy solutions more cost effective, developing new technologies for the future's smart industry and electrifying passenger and freight transport, we make reality of our vision of a sustainable world.

We are now offering an interesting Master Thesis project at Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB in Finspång, Sweden.


Whole Engine Department
We are 14 persons who are responsible for rotor and blade dynamics as well as secondary air systems in our gas turbines (Power output: 15-57 MW). Our main working tasks are development of existing and future engines. We also give support to other departments such as manufacturing, sales, commissioning and service.

The challenge

  • Multi-disciplinary optimization (MDO) has been playing an ever more important role in achieving a well-rounded design during both the early and mature design phases.
  • This MSc thesis project aims at applying Siemens in-house optimization tool (e.g. Siemens HEEDS) to the aeromechanical design of an industrial last stage turbine blade taking into consideration the aerodynamics, structural dynamics, mechanical/dynamic integrity and with a key focus on the aeroelastic stabilities.
  • The proposed work is to be performed within 20 weeks and includes the application and improvement of the MDO processes, parametrization of geometry using NX with the support from design engineers, (automatic) mesh generation, modal analysis (preferably NX Nastran or Abaqus), stress evaluations and 3D CFD aeroelastic calculations employing both commercial (Star-CCM+) and in-house tools.
  • Extraction of the design knowledge from the MDO results will also be essential.

Who are you?

  • You are a Master Thesis student within relevant areas.
  • Previous experience with FEA and CFD analyses, programming skills and/or measurements are an advantage.
  • We prefer that the work is started in January/February 2019 and is finished in the spring or summer.
