    • High temperature gas mixing systems
    • Water cooled parts subject to extreme temperatures
    • High temperature furnace systems
  • Perform computational analyses to demonstrate designs meet requirements:
    • Stress analysis to validate sufficient mechanical strength of components and assemblies
    • Thermal analyses to estimate component temperatures and ensure effective heat flow
    • Fluid flow analyses to design of gas flow and mixing systems
  • Analyze data from existing reactor systems to learn about system behavior
  • Performs other duties as needed.

You Are:

  • Organized: Ability to intelligently categorize information in a method that is intuitive to others
