I'm in need of a seasoned Mechanical Engineer with specific expertise in heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamic cycle analysis to assist in the development of a revolutionary solar thermal engine patent prototype. Key Requirements: - Conducting in-depth thermodynamic cycle analysis for the solar thermal engine. - Designing the engine layout and key components to optimize its performance. - Understanding and managing the behaviors of steam vapor and condensate. - Proficiency in analyzing fluid flow, power, and pressure drop. - Knowledge of steam hammer and heat pipe behavior for this application. - Experience with developing engines within the 1-5 kW power output range is essential. Ideal Skills: - Proficiency in CAD software, such as SolidWorks. - Experience with thermal/flow simulation software, like ANSYS or COMSOL. - Knowledge of material science and heat-resistant materials. - Experience working on patent prototypes is a plus. Scope: First 10 hours: - Review existing design and analysis - Conduct initial thermodynamic analysis, heat transfer, and 3kW power calculations - Identify key components and materials Second 10 hours: - Create preliminary design of the engine layout (drawings or sketches) - Develop preliminary design/placement of key components (e.g., pipe, valves, evaporator, condenser) Deliverables: First 10 hours: - Design Report (5-10 pages): - Overview of the design concept - Thermodynamic cycle analysis (calculations and spreadsheet; Excel/OpenOffice Calc) - Heat transfer calculations and assumptions (calculations and spreadsheet; Excel/OpenOffice Calc) - Fluid flow, power, and pressure drop (calculations) - Summary of Findings (1-2 pages) Second 10 hours: -CAD Drawings (2D or 3D): - Engine layout design - Key component designs (e.g., evaporator, condenser, piston) -Design Summary (2-3 pages): - Overview of the preliminary design - Materials selection and justification - List of components and materials - Identification of key components and materials - Preliminary selection of materials and suppliers - Next Steps and Recommendations: - Identification of critical design decisions and next steps - Recommendations for prototyping This is a challenging and groundbreaking project, so I'm looking for an engineer with a strong track record in these areas. If you believe you have the experience and skills to contribute to this project, please reach out.
