Engineer Internship – aerodynamic optimization of thrust reverser grilles

Company Details

Safran is an international high-technology group, operating in the aviation (propulsion, equipment and interiors), defense and space markets.

Job description

Within the Technical Department, you join the Integration department. Your main mission will be to study the aerodynamic performance of thrust reverser grilles using a digital simulation tool (CFD). You will thus have to understand the flows through the grid and study the influence of the geometric parameters thereof. You will test different optimization solutions.

In this context, you will have to:

  • Assimilate digital modeling tools (Ansys / Fluent Meshing and Fluent Solver, optimization software)
  • Carry out 2D and 3D CFD modeling of the grid with different blade profiles in order to increase their aerodynamic efficiency.
  • Analyze results and propose better geometries.
  • Perform the comparative analysis of optimization solutions (bench).

Job requirements

  • At BAC + 5 level, you are in the last year of engineering school or in Master 2 fluid mechanics.
  • You have a theoretical base of aerodynamics, turbulence, optimization. You are familiar with ANSYS Fluent software.
  • You are autonomous and show initiative.
