Description of the job

Airbus Helicopters (Marignane) is looking for an intern for a 6-month internship.

Optimising a rotary wing air vehicle is complex and requires that multiple criteria be taken into account before a technical solution and a response to the customer's needs can be proposed.
Pre-sizing is a key stage that directs the future product by means of multiple iterations (rapid convergence loops). To do this, complex methods (such as calculation by blade item) are not adapted to the requirement for speed. Airbus Helicopters has therefore developed its own method using experience acquired from a large range of products.
In the context of this development, you will develop a predictive calculation model for the main rotor polar in order to introduce it into the pre-project model. This theoretical model must be representative of the blade's aerodynamic behaviour for the entire flight context.

This internship will start on 27st February 2017 (subject to some flexibility).
