Job Description

Thermofluid Systems Engineer – LibertyWorks
Indianapolis, IN

The Thermofluid Systems Engineer is responsible for design and analysis of gas turbine air, oil, fuel, and thermal management systems along with component through whole engine thermal analysis. The role supports the entire product lifecycle from concept generation and evaluation to in-service support.

At Rolls-Royce, we pioneer the power that matters to our customers, to society and to the planet.

To ensure we continue to be pioneers of our industry, Rolls-Royce has a team of over 16,500 engineers around the globe.

We recruit engineers at all levels and in a range of disciplines. And while we encourage specialisation, we also offer freedom to cross-specialise and develop skills across a number of different areas.

Key Accountabilities:

  • Perform detailed fluid flow analyses of gas turbine engine systems, subsystems, and components using 1-D network analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) analyses in support of fluid flow and heat transfer understanding
  • Perform heat transfer analyses of gas turbine engine subsystems and components including engine surface heat rejection and hot surface ignition risk analysis
  • Prepare and deliver analysis results in formal and informal design reviews
  • Apply systems engineering concepts to define whole engine fluid systems and support resolution of system-level issues. This will include working together with other engineers in Thermofluids, Engine Performance, Controls, Installations, Turbines, Compressors, Combustion, and Power Transmission Systems
  • Support engine development testing through analysis or on-site test by planning, monitoring, inspection of instrumented hardware (pre and post-test), data reduction, and model validation
  • Contribute to your team by defining and completing technical work packages to meet customer requirements, evaluating technologies, implementing systems engineering approaches, assisting junior engineers, and identifying and/or developing new and better approaches to the thermofluid system processes and guides
