Simulation Analysis Engineer


For an intetessting assignment at one of our customers we are now looking for a Simulation Analysis Engineer.

Special expertise needed:

The role has a central function in the organization, performing simulation and analysis work for all of the technical divisions within ESS. The area of expertise should be wide, enabling the candidate to take on tasks in a range of different fields of physics. The main focus of analysis work is within structural and fluid mechanics using FEM/CFD. Competences within the following areas of analysis are credited:

  • Structural strength Static and dynamic simulations
  • Fluid dynamics using CFD
  • Thermal calculations and thermodynamics
  • Seismic and vibrations
  • Pipe and support calculations

Our main tool for CFD and FEM simulations is ANSYS, and the main tool for pipe calculations is ROHR2. The ability to use both of these tools are highly credited.

Some process simulations are also performed by the Analysis section, with the use of DYMOLA (Modelica language). Good knowledge of process systems and the ability to use this tool is credited.

Since the customer is a research facility where advanced physics is being conducted, a basic understanding of the fields of more theoretical physics, such as atomic and nuclear physics, quantum mechanics or electro magnetics is also credited. The environments that are being simulated is often subjected to extreme conditions, such as cryogenic temperatures, chocked flows and/or radiation.

The candidate will also focus in the following tasks:

  • Performing dimensional and verifying
  • Review designs and calculations performed by the customer and external collaborators.
  • Other related engineering

Project /design activities are planned and lead by work unit leaders and lead design engineers, representing different project teams.

Tools and hardware needed:

The consultant will bring own laptop & phone

The customer will provide licenses to CAD and Engineering tools required for the assignment.

Required education background and professional experience:

  • Education in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Physics or equivalent; Sc. or similar.
  • At least 5 years of experience working from industry or scientific projects.
  • Very good experience of using
  • Good knowledge in relevant design codes, norms and standards; RCC-MRx; and foremost

Experience of working in an international environment is essential.

Position is full time at ESS office in Lund.
