Now hiring: Fluid Flow Expert

December 08, 2021

Coolbrook is currently looking to hire a Fluid Flow Expert to help us continue to pioneer our technology.

Coolbrook is a Finnish-Dutch technology company on a mission to cut at least 25% of the world’s industrial CO2 emissions by electrifying traditionally fossil-fuel-heavy industrial processes. Using space science and turbomachinery and mechanical and chemical engineering, our revolutionary rotating machinery technology is able to reach heats up to 1700℃ in a completely electric process. Our Roto Dynamic Heater (RDH) and Roto Dynamic Reactor (RDR) are being used to electrify industrial sectors that until now have been considered almost impossible to electrify, including the steel, cement and chemical industries.

Together with governments, industry pioneers and the world’s top experts, we can use this technology to solve one of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced. Will you join us?

Coolbrook is currently looking to hire a Fluid Flow Expert to help us continue to pioneer our technology.

Your main duties in this role will be:

  • Developing models of fluid flow and heat transfer in turbomachines and combining them with chemical kinetics, process, and mechanical models.
  • Gas-dynamic design of turbomachines: gas duct design, blades design.
  • Calculation and simulation of gas and liquid flow parameters, as well as thermal parameters in designed turbomachines in collaboration with design engineers.
  • Analysis of experimental gas-dynamic and heat transfer data, regression analysis and models tuning with experimental data.

To fill this position, we would like you to have:

  • Master’s degree or equivalent in the field of fluid flows or closely relevant fields. A Doctor of Science / PhD Degree is optimal.
  • 3+ Years of work experience in modelling and analysis of fluid flows.
  • Good knowledge of fluid flow theory.
  • Good knowledge of heat transfer in fluids and solids.
  • Good knowledge of modelling approaches to the fluid flow problems.
  • Strong ability to solve fluid flow problems using theoretical, empirical, and numerical modelling approaches.
  • Good skills in data analysis and regression analysis.
  • Good knowledge of turbulence models and their applicability ranges: K-E, K-O, SST, LES
  • Solid knowledge and proven experience of work with the following simulation software packages: CFX, FLUENT, TurboGrid, OpenFOAM
  • Good knowledge of 3D modelling software: SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, DesignModeller, SpaceClaim
  • Good knowledge of meshing approaches for numerical simulation tasks and their impact on final results.
  • Good knowledge of data processing software/languages: Matlab/Octave, Simulink, Scilab, Python.
  • Ability to think ‘out of the box’.
  • Ability to work in a multidisciplinary field including fluid flow, chemistry, and mechanical engineering.
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge of supersonic turbulent gas flows desired.
  • Solid knowledge and practical experience of turbomachinery gas-dynamics and blades design desired.
  • Good knowledge of programming languages like Fortran, C++ is a plus.

About Coolbrook

Coolbrook Ltd. is a Finnish-Dutch engineering company on a mission to create a cleaner, more sustainable and profitable way to produce Olefins, the main component in the petrochemical industry and the production of plastics, chemical products, packaging and more. Coolbrook’s Rotor Dynamic Reactor (RDR) is a revolutionary technology that combines space science, turbomachinery and chemical engineering to replace the current inefficient and polluting steam cracking methods used to make Olefins with a radically cleaner and more effective alternative. Backed by a growing number of governments, petrochemical producers and environmental regulators, Coolbrook’s RDR technology is set to become the new global standard in Olefins production.
