I'm looking for an engineer (mechanical / automotive) who can help me complete designing an intake manifold for a car. The task entails the following:
1. Transient flow analysis of the manifold using SolidWorks Flow Simulation via time and pressure drop parameters like this:

As mentioned in the video, an intake-valve-pressure-drop timing sequence for a specific RPM value must be created based on engine specifications for this simulation to be accurate. I will provide Engine specs and RPM, so the engineer will need to calculate the pressure drop curves as a function of time for this RPM (revolutions per minute) value.
2. Finding this Intake Manifold's optimum end-tank shape that promotes most even-flow distribution to all runners (runners are pipes that feed air to the cylinders) and highest air velocity through each runner is the goal. Using a true 3-D Computational Fluid Dynamics software with an optimization function that can find the optimal end tank shape within the space limitations is ideal.
There are space constraints, so the overall intake plenum shape is provided as a SolidWorks file. It's just the end tank shape that needs to be optimized. I imagine experience with software like Star CCM and Waves Engine Simulation will make this job easier. Lastly, the engineer must explain how the above 2 criteria were solved so I can do the same test for different RPM values. Can you help me complete this task?

I am M.Sc. in mechanical engineering and i have done something similar in near past, specialist in fluid dynamics, I can send some samples of my work. Cheers.
Sound's intresting. I did project like this In COSMOSFloWorks in my magister work. It's almost the same. Optimization - I could do it and show simulation result to approve optimum shape of manifold.
Dedicated in providing a professional, cost-effective and reliable computer aided design, draughting and visualization service to the Manufacture, Design, and Creative Industries
I am a mechanical engineer with a lot of experience in CAD and fluid dynamics and have experience of international projects in France and Denmark.
I'm a mechanical engineer, I've used floworks to analyze different objects including a golf ball and an airfoil. I have the the Solidworks skills and knowledge of fluids to test different manifold designs.
