Internship available in FEA of Elastomers

An internship position is available in the area of Finite Element Analysis of Elastomers in the Simulation and Modeling Group at Schlumberger, Sugar Land, TX.

The objective of the internship is to analyze and optimize the design of a downhole tool used for oil and gas drilling operations. The objective of the first phase is to develop a coupled thermomechanical model for elastomers in ABAQUS or COMSOL to capture the temperature increase in the elastomer components of the tool due to the viscoelastic and frictional heat dissipated. In the second phase of the project, the thermomechanical model will participate in a coupled Fluid-Solid Interaction (FSI) model, providing appropriate boundary conditions to the flow. In parallel, the candidate is expected to optimize the design of the elastomeric components to maximize life and performance.

We are looking for extremely high-energy, self-motivated Ph.D. candidates with exceptional problem-solving, communication, leadership and interpersonal skills who are seeking challenges to solve technical problems. If you have any of the academic qualifications listed below, submit an application to join our team of international experts in the Simulation & Modeling Group located in Sugar Land, TX. Please send your cover letter and resume via email to me at



This internship position is now closed. Thanks for the interest of all those who applied.
