Elliott Company seeks an Engineer IV – Compressor Aerodynamics to work at our Jeannette, PA, office.


Create, develop and improve state-of-the-art industrial compressor designs using a hierarchy of modern aero-thermodynamic design methods (1-D to 3-D, unsteady flow models), including advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation software and turbomachinery rig test measurement and data analysis techniques. Will also manage and execute the aerodynamic design/validation portion of Product Development projects, continuously sustain design, simulation and test best practices, and play a significant role in advancing our compressor technology base.


Must have a master's degree (or foreign equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering with an emphasis on turbomachinery aerodynamics plus three (3) years of experience in a position involving aerodynamic design, analysis and rig-testing.


Must also have any experience with: (i) aerodynamics, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics; (ii) aerodynamic design and analysis of turbomachinery components, a part of which must be related to centrifugal compressor design; (iii) using a 3D CFD simulation software (CFX or similar); (iv) integrating and using optimization software with CAD (computer aided design) and CFD software for turbomachinery design; (v) using 1-D meanline and multiple-streamline performance prediction loss models; (vi) using a CAD software (Creo or similar parametric geometry modeling software); (vii) conducting experimental studies to review aerodynamic performance and troubleshoot various aerodynamic issues; (viii) applying complex analytical tools (1D, 2D, 3D aerodynamic analysis programs) to resolve performance problems; and (ix) providing technical direction and expertise in assignments.
