Finite Element Stress Software Developer

Job Description

Finite Element Solid Stress Developer

The STAR-CCM+ team is seeking a motivated developer to contribute to the development of the STAR-CCM+ finite element solid stress solver. Finite element development is a relatively new extension of STAR-CCM+multi-physics solver family. The traditionally finite volume centric code is being extended to allow optimal discretization for solid mechanics, computational electromagnetics and complex polymeric fluids. This means new challenges, frequent enhancement and re-architecture of established solver components towards efficient finite element support.

The primary goal of the development is to expand the modeling capabilities and support natively such challenging application as fluid structure interactions and coupling to the rest of STAR-CCM+ physics models.


The primary responsibilities include but are not limited to:

·       Design and development of component for solid stress finite element solver including

o   Contact modeling

o   Fluid-solid coupling

o   Shell modeling

o   Efficient linear solvers and preconditioners

·       Interaction with other STAR-CCM+ teams

·       Work in large, geographically distributed teams

Required Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience

·       Masters, PhD or equivalent degree in mechanical engineering, applied

math or computer science

·       Excellent communication skills

·       Good working knowledge of finite element solid stress numerical

·       methods (2 years working in finite element domain – master’s or Ph.D.

thesis included)

·       Solid C++ development skills (2 years practical C++ development

·       experience)

Preferred Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience

·       Experience participating in large-scale software development project

·       (2 years)

·       Practical experience developing industrial C++ code (2 years)

·       Good knowledge of algorithms and techniques used in finite element


·       Experience with modern CPU optimization, vectorization, shared and

distributed memory parallelization and GPU programming
