Serves as a company expert in the design and analysis of fluid systems and related components. Extensive knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of fluid mechanics is required.
Ideal candidate will have extensive experience and knowledge of all aspects of fluid modeling and analysis, including steady-state and transient flow analysis in laminar and turbulent flow regimes of compressible and incompressible fluids (e.g. air, water, compressed air, hydraulic fluids and steam).
The candidate will have a working knowledge of flow through system components (e.g. turbines, propellers, pumps, heat exchangers, fans and filters). Knowledge and capability should allow for component specific analysis, as well as overall systems assessments.
They also must have a working knowledge of ship performance and the impact that design/modifications have on performance.
Candidates should have a thorough knowledge of the capabilities and limitations of single and multiphase flow resolution of complex or unique issues. They will support R\u0026D programs and recommend technological application initiatives to accomplish long-range objectives for their engineering discipline.
Candidates will be expected to devote a significant portion of their time providing guidance and oversight for unique/complex problems across all engineering programs. Develop advanced technological ideas and guide their development into the production environment. Resolution of these issues may require laboratory or shipboard testing. Research and develop advance new applications resulting in new products/business opportunities for the company.
Candidates will participate in identifying and developing individuals who could serve as successors to this position. They will act as a consultant to other engineers in resolving fluid flow issues and mentor junior engineers within the same discipline.
Candidates should be familiar with established standards such as the Naval Shipboard Piping Structural Design Manual, Piping Design Basis PDB-46, ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and Nuclear Regulatory Commission Regulations.
An advanced degree in Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering and a valid Professional Engineer's license is preferred.
Researches, plans, designs and develops mechanical products and systems such as instruments, controls, robots, engines, machines and mechanical, thermal hydraulic or heat transfer systems for production, transmission, measurement, and use of energy. Applies research to the planning, design, development, and testing of mechanical and/or electromechanical systems, instruments, controls, engines, and/or machines.
