Seeking Master’s Student Research Engineer to Build GUI for IGA Meshing

By February 2, 2021 April 20th, 2021 News, SC2 jobs

YB Numerics Inc. is seeking to hire a research engineer to work on the development of a meshing tool and GUI to support general-purpose volumetric mesh generation for Isogeometric Analysis (IGA).

 

IGA is a novel computational modeling approach that makes use of smooth spline functions commonly employed in Computer-Aided Design and Computer Graphics to carry out Finite Element Analysis in solid and fluid mechanics, coupled fluid-structure interaction (FSI), and other areas.

 

The ideal candidate would be someone pursuing their MS degree in Computational Science and Engineering or Computer Science. The engagement can be from 20 hours/week all the way to full-time employment. The candidate may work remotely, relocation to the Providence area is not required. The candidate may also use some products of this work to contribute to his/her MS thesis if desired.

 

Duties:
The research engineer will mainly work on the implementation of a GUI for generating volume meshes for IGA using the multiblock Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS) technology. The research engineer will also help generate NURBS meshes and carry out computational analyses of solid and fluid mechanics applications using the meshes produced by the meshing tool. The research engineer will interact with the YB Numerics and Rice University team members and their collaborators on the GUI development, NURBS meshing, and numerical simulations.

 

Required Qualifications:
– Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Mechanical, Civil or Aerospace (or related)
Engineering
– Experience with Qt GUI programming (Qt OpenGL and WebGL)
– Experience with team programming environments (GitHub/GitLab, CMake, Docker)
– Must be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident

 

Desired Qualifications:
– Master’s degree
– Good knowledge of geometric modeling
– Good knowledge of numerical methods
– Knowledge of fluid and solid mechanics
– Experience with Fortran 90 programming
– Experience with high-performance computing (MPI, OpenMP)
