The Opportunity


We are looking for a Reacting Flows Lead CAE Engineer to join the Powertrain Units ElectroThermal Fluids team. Working as part of a team of simulation engineers using virtual techniques such as CFD for simulating the electro thermal fluid systems within HV Battery units and internal combustion engines . CAE is an integral part of the units product development process and requires robust and repeatable processes to support the digital development phase. The application of such tools is used to assess and optimise design solutions as well as validating the design prior to the hardware release.




  • Undertake virtual verification of the PT units.
  • Apply 1 and or 3d techniques using standardised processes.
  • Provide clear RAG status against engineering questions.
  • Review CAD and feedback ahead of the virtual assessment.
  • Quality assures non geometrical data ahead of the virtual assessments.
  • Recommend and / or demonstrate design solutions to resolve any issues identified.
  • Document status and recommendations.
  • Undertake design optimisation
  • Support and present at design reviews with key stakeholders: component design teams, PAT teams, packaging teams
  • Work effectively with design teams to develop and optimise solutions considering multi-attributes within defined deadlines and time constraints undertaking simulations as required.
  • Have some product knowledge and awareness of potential design constraints (packaging, manufacturing etc.) and ensure due consideration is given in developing solutions.
  • Support the Methods squad develop tools and techniques which enhance capability, improve quality and robustness of virtual models
  • Correlate existing analysis processes against physical data. Identify process short comings and opportunities to improve.
  • Support department prevent reoccurrence process identify CAE failures and undertaking annual projects to resolve.
  • Support methods reviews as appropriate contributing ideas.
  • Support issue resolution and warranty activity as required.
  • Liaise with all internal customers of our business as well as offshore operations where necessary
  • Mentor and train junior and offshore team members
  • Ensure junior / offshore team members are familiar with CAE processes.
  • Support junior / offshore team member issue resolution (process and design verification).




• Working knowledge and experience of Powertrain Electro and Thermal Fluid CAE methodologies

• Previous experience and background in solving complex technical ideas and challenges

• Previous experience of battery / electric drive units and internal combustion component / system level development using CAE to meet defined performance targets

  Previous experience of Reacting flows simulation e.g. Thermal runaway propagation, cell venting and internal combustion component / system level development using CAE to meet defined performance        targets

• Previous experience of delivering engineering or analytical projects

• Competent in the use of the following software and associated pre and post processing packages:



  GT / Amesim

  Matlab Simulink




• Experience in continuous improvements to business processes to support customer service and financial objectives

• Experience in advanced physical measurement techniques e.g. PIV, PLIF, etc…

• Competent in the use of:

  StarCD and Battery Design Studio / Battery Simulation Module

  CATIA, Macro Programming e.g.  Excel, TCL, Perl, Python, etc…

  Dexperience knowledge desirable

  Experience working in AGILE
