Leidos is seeking an Advanced Transport Phenomena Simulations
Engineer with experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics and
Transport Phenomena Modeling. This position is available in Albany,
OR, Morgantown, WV or Pittsburgh, PA.
The research will focus on developing and interpreting advanced
transport phenomena models for carbon capture with state-of-the-art
solvents. The models developed will be in the core of a thematic
effort to revolutionize the design of new generation carbon capture
systems with reduced size and improved performance.
Primary Responsibilities Include:
Developing and deploying high-fidelity state-of-the-art,
multi-phase models to capture the coupled physics and chemical
reactions for carbon capture with solvents.
Contributing to the theoretical understanding of simulation
results emerging from the interplay between heat, mass and momentum
transfer with thermodynamics and reaction kinetics.
Programmatically parameterizing non-trivial structures through
advanced algorithms of differential geometry with the capability of
informing the CFD models through API tools on the structural
Creating an integrated programming framework that can lead to
improved design on a device scale satisfying reduced operating and
capital cost criteria.
Contributing to the efficient transfer of information between
process and CFD modeling platforms.
Calibrating and validating the CFD models against experimental
results using state-of-the-art commercial or open source algorithms
and tools for curve fitting and parametric estimation.
Working with Machine Learning teams to create Reduced Order
Models and Surrogate Models based on the CFD results.
Potentially transferring elements of the above framework to
sorbents and membranes modeling for Carbon Capture.
PhD. in engineering, or equivalent.
Demonstrated experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics and
Transport Phenomena Modeling.
Required Experience in the Following Areas:
Computational-theoretical transport phenomena.
