Description of the job
Airbus Safran Launchers (Les Mureaux) is looking for an intern for a 6-months internship.
FLUSEPA is a CFD code initially developed by Airbus Safran Lauchers for aerodynamics and propulsion studies.
It has been widely upgraded during more than 20 years and now provides with unique features in the aerodynamic and propelling flows domains: Unsteady simulations:
· Launcher staging (multi bodies & relative movements),
· Blast wave at lift-off,
· Environments at motor ignition (side loads, re-burning…),
· Very Large Eddy simulations (unsteady turbulence),
· Interstellar probes dynamic stability at reentry,
· Base flow buffeting…
Two-phases flows (missiles ejection, wake flow signature, propelling jets)
Steady aerodynamic flows, from subsonic to hypersonic regimes.
· Aerodynamic coefficients databases
· Distributed and local loadings (stages, fairings, protrusions).
This is the reference tool for Ariane 6 developments.
It is also intensely used in the framework of New Generation Launchers and reusable winged space vehicle projects like ADELINE.
The FLUSEPA code is considered as the keystone of future developments.
Current projects are performed in the framework of cooperations with research laboratories concerning VLES methods with re-burning phenomena, HPC/massive parallelism, automated mesh adaptation and the improvement of numerical schemes.
This internship will start on 1st February 2017 (subject to some flexibility).
