Siemens Power Generation,
Siemens Power Generation, Inc. is looking for engineering
students to spend the summer semester working in an integrated
product team environment developing gas turbine components,
auxiliary systems, and supporting technologies.
Specific areas of focus include:
Mechanical Design and Analysis
Material Science (metallurgy, ceramics,
Advanced Gas Turbines operate at very high
temperatures and extremely aggressive environments.
Consequently, the Hot Section Turbine components use High-Temperature Coatings (HTC) as a means of protection. The
performance and life of these components depends very strongly
on the properties of the Advanced HTCs. The generation,
documentation, analyses and storage of these HTC properties are
of critical importance to GT Design and Operation. Additionally,
given the high potential return on investment in the area of HTC
Development and Implementation, this is one of the most exciting
and funded area in the field of Materials Development for
Advanced Gas Turbines.
Siemens Power Generation, Inc. is thus looking for motivated
individuals with strong analytical & organization skills, to
work with Coatings Engineers in the GT Materials Engineering
Department and develop effective ways to incorporate Coatings
Property Data into our Database Management System called MVISION.
Modeling of the effects of changes in fuel
composition and combustor geometry for catalytic and non
catalytic combustion systems. Running small scale experiments on
prototype designs at Casselberry Labs.
Siemens Power Generation, Inc. standard computational tools (Pro
Engineer , Ansys, CFX) is an asset.
