Aeroshell Development (CAD & CFD)

The Fifth Mode of Transportation – Tachyon Hyperloop

Combine controlled levitating of a capsule in a near vacuum tube with an electrical propulsion system and you might have a hyperloop in a nutshell. We at Tachyon are certain that revolutionizing the transport sector with high innovation in combination with sustainability is not just possible, but necessary for a bright and exciting future for every one of us. Be a part of a fascinating and groundbreaking mission and help us establish a new highly innovate green-tech sector in Germany and Europe

About this position

We call our vehicle as “Pod”. Final test run of the pod will be in near vacuum environment but there is still atmospheric pressure of 150-200mBar. At high speeds the aeroshell of the pod plays an important role in minimizing the drag. Each season we optimize the current design of the aeroshell and tend to use sustainable material for the aeroshell

Requirements for position

  • Preferably studying Mechanical Engineering, Physics, CES or Computer Science
  • Good understanding of mechanics
  • Ideally previous knowledge of CAD design Aerodynamics and CFD simulation
  • Special interest in aerodynamics
  • Willingness and dedication to the project
  • Living in Aachen

What will be your tasks

  • Development of the simulation-workflow in StarCCM+, NX or solidworks
  • Aerodynamic component design about the complete vehicle concept
  • Collaboration on cross-group tasks (such as testing, manufacturing)
  • Participation in team and group meetings

What do we offer

  • Be a part of the management team in one of the most innovative high-tech projects
  • Opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge in practice and to implementyour own ideas in a motivated and excitingenvironment
  • Surround yourself with a group of extra ordinary students who all want more from their studies
  • Contact with potential employers andestablishment of a network (in industryand research)
  • Pre-start-up experience
