Internship / CFD on propellers (m/f)
Airbus Safran Launchers Les Mureaux
Created by Airbus Group and Safran, Airbus Safran Launchers is a 50/50 joint venture bringing together the expertise and assets of both groups in terms of civil and military space launchers.
Its industrial and technological heritage, linked to the passion which drives the men and women of Airbus Safran Launchers, is what has enabled it to become the current world leader in space access.
Through clever operations at all levels, Airbus Safran Launchers offers innovative and competitive solutions to its customers, in order to bring the European space industry to its highest level and thereby guarantee independent access to space.
Airbus Group is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2015, the Group - comprising Airbus, Airbus Defence and Space and Airbus Helicopters - generated revenues of € 64.5 billion and employed a workforce of around 136,600.
Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other's expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary - on the ground, in the sky and in space.
Description of the job
Airbus Safran Launchers (Les Mureaux) is looking for an intern (m/f) for a 6-month internship.
FLUSEPA is a three-dimensional computation code developed by the Airbus Safran Launchers Fluid Mechanics department and adapted to the simulation of complex flows (unsteady, compressible, turbulent, reactive, multiphasic, etc.) around bodies in relative motion.
It covers a very wide range of fields in physics, from internal aerodynamics (study of the nozzle and thruster operation, jet effect modelling, etc.), to external aerodynamics (launcher "classical" aerodynamics).
One of its originalities comes from its meshing overlap conservative technique which is used to simulate the flows around several bodies in relative motion without amplitude limits or constraint relating to the kinematics of the various objects.
The aim of your internship will be to implement the "actuator disk" methodology with FLUSEPA, thus making it possible to simulate rotary machinery (simulation of the propellers of a turboprop for example)
This internship will start on 1st February 2017 (subject to some flexibility).
