Fluid Dynamics Analyst

Fluid dynamics analysts typically come from a physics or engineering background and use their training to model and analyse the behaviour (i.e. movement and flow) of fluids and gases. This knowledge is applied in forming solutions to design problems, often using highly advanced modelling software which allows the testing of hypotheses and manipulation of variables such as velocity and temperature. Industries which require this type of analysis include:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Power and other resources
  • Marine
  • Chemical and materials processing

Fluid dynamics analysis is a highly specialised niche field in which employment is competitive. Though the principles of physics and engineering are the foundations of this area broad industry knowledge, practical industrial experience and aptitude for software operation and development is highly regarded.
