Simulation Engineering Manager-FEA expert Jobs in Sarasota – Florida – USA at Marvel Consultants

Title: Simulation Engineering Manager-FEA expert

Company: Marvel Consultants

Location: Sarasota – Florida – USA

Type: Full Time

Category: Engineering, Airport/Airline

The Simulation Engineer Manager will accelerate our implementation of finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and dynamic systems modeling (DSM) for design validations and performance predictions. This role will be responsible for leading a cultural shift to vetting designs with simulation before cutting parts, performing, and reporting on analysis of product designs, providing insight on whether a proposed design will meet the desired specifications.

There will be a focus on identifying and closing gaps in our simulation capabilities to improve accuracy while reducing development and simulation time. In addition, this role will be responsible for managing and growing an international team of simulation engineers. They will provide technical direction on best practices and skills development for the simulation team. The role will also work with customers to develop high fidelity models of valves and systems for use in their own simulations, while protecting the critical IP of our products.
