Main Task

Your task is to design the aerodynamic devices which include the front and rear wing, sidewings and underbody. The task involves creating designs, calculating and evaluating the forces acting on the vehicle and the aerodynamic balance. Your main development tools will be computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in the software Star CCM+ and modelling in Solidworks. The mounts of the components and the manufacturing of the final design will also be your responsibility.

Your Profile

You have an interest and basic knowledge of aerodynamics and/or fluid dynamics. You are proficient in the use of analytical methods and want to work with CFD. Any experience in aerodynamics, composites or CFD is meriting.
