Leidos is a Fortune 500™ company aimed at embracing and solving some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Through science and technology, Leidos makes the world safer, healthier and more efficient.
Our Civil Group offers an array of exciting career opportunities for the best IT, energy, logistics and engineering professionals.
Leidos is seeking an Advanced Transport Phenomena Simulations Engineer with experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Transport Phenomena Modeling to join our Workforce Development team in Pittsburgh, PA.
The research will focus on developing and interpreting advanced transport phenomena models for carbon capture with state-of-the-art solvents. The models developed will be in the core of a thematic effort to revolutionize the design of new generation carbon capture systems with reduced size and improved performance.
Primary Responsibilities Include:
Developing and deploying high-fidelity state-of-the-art, multi-phase models to capture the coupled physics and chemical reactions for carbon capture with solvents.
Contributing to the theoretical understanding of simulation results emerging from the interplay between heat, mass and momentum transfer with thermodynamics and reaction kinetics.
Programmatically parameterizing non-trivial structures through advanced algorithms of differential geometry with the capability of informing the CFD models through API tools on the structural changes.
Creating an integrated programming framework that can lead to improved design on a device scale satisfying reduced operating and capital cost criteria.
Contributing to the efficient transfer of information between process and CFD modeling platforms.
Calibrating and validating the CFD models against experimental results using state-of-the-art commercial or open source algorithms and tools for curve fitting and parametric estimation.
Working with Machine Learning teams to create Reduced Order Models and Surrogate Models based on the CFD results.
Potentially transferring elements of the above framework to sorbents and membranes modeling for Carbon Capture.
Demonstrated experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Transport Phenomena Modeling.
Required Experience in the Following Areas:
Computational-theoretical transport phenomena.
Multi-phase flow modeling: Level set/Phase Field Methodso Numerical Methods for PDEs and Optimization.
Comsol Multiphysics/equivalent software-Chemical Engineering, CFD and Heat transfer modules.
Programming skills in Matlab-Simulink, Python, Julia, Fortran, C, C++o High Performance Computing.
Designing in CAD software.
Experience in carbon capture technologies.
