Metal Additive Manufacturing Simulation Intern
Cambridge, MA
Job Description Job Description

The Bosch Research and Technology Center in Cambridge, MA is looking for outstanding students in engineering to work on simulation of metal additive manufacturing.

Modelling of melt pool dynamics in metal additive manufacturing is possible, yet time consuming, for a single combination of processing parameters. Process optimization requires comparative investigations and hence process mapping on a higher level of abstraction. The goal of the project is to create a meta-model that allows the investigation of the whole accessible parameter space in terms of the primary process parameters.

  • Be trained on the functionality and the modification options of the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model.
  • Set up and apply material configurations to a given model. Compare high resolution simulations to an existing short timeframe simulation.
  • Evaluate simulation results and provide sensitivity analysis on the influence of primary process on the results.
  • Pattern the space in-between the high-resolution data-points by applying the short timeframe solution.
  • Parallel to calculation times: provide scouting of multiphase flow options for additive manufacturing (Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Direct Metal Depostion (DMD), Electron Beam Melting (EBM)) and related fields (e.g. welding) in terms of software solutions, model adaptions and influencing factors neglected to date.
  • Produce report on findings.


  • Experience in CFD
  • Experience in 3D CAD Modeling
  • Knowledgeable in Thermo- and Fluid- Dynamics
  • Additive Manufacturing experience desired
  • Excellent Communication skills
  • Currently pursuing MS or PhD
  • Field of Education: Mechanical Engineering, Material Science, Computer Science or closely related field with focus on additive manufacturing
