Aerothermal / Thermo Fluid
Aerothermal Engineering covers the broad process of design, from the initial idea through to product testing. The designers on this team use the latest computer aided design technology to create state-of-the-art engine equipment. It involves analysing data and calculating performance, and then repeating the process many times over in an effort to make improvements.
Thermo-Fluid Engineers analyse the ways in which air, fuel and oil serve the engine, as well as how heat is transferred between them. The work, which involves a variety of tools ranging from simple preliminary hand calculations to complex computer-based analysis using state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics, is critical in our ability to optimise engine system design.
