Current Openings

Obermeyer Hydro is currently accepting applications for the following positions:

Computational Fluid Dynamics Analyst

  • Create, analyze, and optimize new hydroturbine designs for specific installations using ANSYS CFX and Bladegen software, as well as physical model testing.
  • Build and utilize analytical models for open channel flow, including the calculation of spillway discharge coefficients, spillway gate air demand, and the characterization of flow around piers and abutments, including CFD modelling of transient wave loading of affected structures.
  • Create and utilize analytical models for water hammer in turbine penstocks and dam outlet tunnels using 1D CFD code such as WHAMO and 3D code such as ANSYS CFX.
  • Provide component-level and/or system-level design recommendations to responsible engineers based on interpretation of analysis results.
  • Retrieve and modify Solidworks CAD models of hydroturbine components and pneumatically operated water control gates to support the development of CFD models.
  • Enhance current standard analysis practices and/or tools to improve prediction fidelity and/or execution speed.
  • Participate in product design and development teams and regularly present analysis results to engineering peers and management.
  • Document analysis objectives, results, conclusions, and assumptions using a standard report template.
  • Cooperatively work with test engineers to enhance laboratory procedures to support the development of first-time capable analysis techniques.
  • Stay abreast of new technology and competitive products.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS: This position requires an individual with a minimum of a U.S. Master’s degree or the equivalent in Mechanical Engineering or a related field of study and at least 1 year of experience with incompressible computational fluid dynamics analysis of cavitation-constrained rotating machinery and compressible flow.

Possible background check and drug screening required if working on federal projects. All employees must follow Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace policy that includes random drug testing.
