Engine Performance Simulation Engineer (Pinnacle Engines)

San Carlos, California, USA

Salary: US$80K

Pinnacle Engines, a venture capital backed startup located in San Carlos, California, USA, is seeking talented engineers to join a team that has developed a game-changing engine. We offer competitive pay, great benefits (including free lunch every day!) and relocation for the right candidate. If you want to change the way the world thinks about engines, are looking for the challenge of a lifetime and are not afraid to get your hands dirty, we want to talk to you!

We’re looking for a skilled simulation and analysis engineer to build, calibrate, and validate a 1D/3D engine simulation model (GT Power, Ricard Wave, AVL Boost). This individual will need to calibrate models to match test cell data with sufficient confidence for predictive studies and evaluate/advise on design for thermal management (cooling circuits) using commercial 3D CFD and thermal FEA codes.

Requirements

• BSME or applicable technical degree, advanced degrees preferred
• Several years of experience using predictive engine simulation software and 3D CFD
• Thorough understanding of spark ignited I.C. engine trends including impacts for breathing (ports/cams),
heat transfer, combustion, etc.
• Experience coupling 1D/3D simulations (breathing and convection coefficient mapping)
• Experience with quantifying 2-phase flow and mixture distribution metrics
• Understanding impacts of various combustion (turbulence, mixture distribution) metrics on combustion,
emissions, and efficiency
• Torsional multi-body dynamics simulation a plus (GT Crank, Ricardo Valdyn, AVL Excite, etc)
• Coupling thermal FEA to 1D/3D results from aforementioned simulations a plus
• Capable of working with flexible design constraints
• Ability to communicate well and work proactively in a small, cross-functional team
