Job description

Description
Picanol’s weaving machines are pushing the technical boundaries in many domains. To this end, computer aided simulation tools are essential if we are to obtain improved and better performing products. This is because they enable us to understand and improve the behavior and performance of the machine. Work in this research field aims at creating digital models of (parts of) the weaving machine to perform various forms of analysis and optimization. These simulations are often validated by measurements.


Your task
You will perform simulations in a specific domain of interest (thermal, mechanical, flow, etc.) to obtain a better understanding of problems or opportunities of the loom. You will perform or assist in measurements in order to validate digital models or to understand phenomena that cannot be modeled in an accurate manner.
