Fluid Systems Designer

Company Details

Job Description

ABL’s Fluid Systems Designers bring all the vehicle’s fluid systems together with a streamlined network of tubes and manifolds.

Fluid System Designers work closely with Propulsion Engineers and Component Engineers to bring system schematics to life. They take delight in creating a system layout that balances the mechanical requirements of each part and the complexity of the resulting fluid lines. Good Fluid Systems Designers are organized, methodical, and have exceptional spatial awareness.

Responsibilities

  • Determine fluid line sizes, thickness, materials, and interfaces
  • Convert system schematics to flushed out 3D models in CAD, considering manufacturing, integration, and operational constraints
  • Design and analyze fluid manifolds and component support structures
  • Performed combined loads analysis to determine interface loads
  • Quantify system restrictions
  • Develop production methodology and support initial builds

Basic Qualifications

  • B.S. in any engineering discipline from an accredited university One of the following experience bases:- ‍2+ years of industry experience in a production, integration & test, or design role
  • Collegiate internship or co-op, hands-on extracurricular projects, or similar engineering activity

Preferred Skills and Experience

  • CAD and FEA systems
  • Familiarity with fluid system design elements, including: piping, tubing, flexible elements, flanges, fittings
  • Firm understanding of tubing manufacturing methods, including: bending, flaring, and welding
  • Operation of fluid systems at elevated pressures and extreme temperatures
  • Strong understanding of compressible/incompressible flow and thermodynamics
  • Technical writing and communication including manufacturing plans and design reviews

What We Look For

  1. Critical thinking: ABL engineers understand the “why” behind all design decisions, operational events and test outcomes.
  2. Ability to deal with ambiguity: there is no roadmap and ABL engineers must be comfortable defining their own pathway to an objective.
  3. End-to-end ownership: projects are delivered fully complete and ready for flight; there is no one to pick up the slack of partially complete work.
