Corvid Technologies is seeking qualified candidates for an internship working with our Structural Mechanics Applications Group. The Structural Mechanics Applications Group supports a variety of government programs investigating dynamic phenomena including hypervelocity penetration, reactive material physics, material characterization, and weapon system evaluation. The group leverages its proprietary solver, Velodyne, which is a predictive multi-physics hydro-structural solver involving shock physics to understand and predict what happens to matter (gas, liquid, or solid) under extreme loading conditions, and involves structural mechanics to analyze the behavior of solid structures when exposed to applied mechanical loads.

Examples of desired backgrounds: Knowledge of structural dynamics and mechanics, numerical methods, and finite element analysis; working knowledge of CAD and numerical grid generation techniques and applications; physics, mechanical engineering, or material science with computer modeling and simulation interests.

About Corvid: Corvid is a small business that provides technology-based solutions to a diverse customer base ranging from the Missile Defense Agency to NASCAR. We are a group of over 100 engineers and scientists, about 2/3rds with master’s degrees or Ph.D.’s, that provide end-to-end solutions including concept development, design and optimization, prototype build, test, and manufacture. We leverage the predictive capability of our high-fidelity computational physics solvers, indigenous massively parallel supercomputer system, prototyping plant, and ballistics and mechanics lab to investigate a variety of highrate physics phenomena. The results are complex engineering solutions for a variety of applications; aircraft, ballistic missile defense, motorsports, armor development, biological systems, and missile and warhead design and development. These results are achieved with optimal design and cost efficiency due to the predictive capability of Corvid’s tools and our in-house, end-to-end integrated approach, which differentiates Corvid from the market.
