Industrial PhD within Vehicle Integration

The Vehicle Integration unit at CEVT is responsible for the development of customer unique selling points in terms of fulfilling attribute requirements in a customer profile. Typically, different discipline like NVH, Energy consumption, Chassis, Ride and handling is continuously evaluated via virtual development tools. These tools and methods are applied in development projects in a gate structure and is the core of CEVT knowhow for fast development.

As an industrial PhD, you will be employed by the CEVT Vehicle Integration team and connected to Chalmers University of Technology, (division VEAS) as a full-time PhD student to develop core methodology for increasing CEVT knowhow in vehicle development.

The division of Vehicle Engineering and Autonomous Systems (VEAS) focuses on engineering of systems in vehicle and robotic applications. Its strength lies in building knowledge for solving authentic problems with the aim to provide innovative solutions of industrial relevance. Theory, modelling, simulations, and experimental work form cornerstones in all projects.

The focus in this project is on improving the understanding of how unsteady fluid flow simulations can be used together with a vehicle dynamics model to investigate high speed stability. The objective is to deepen the knowledge about the opportunities of large scale simulation models to influence the early-phase design process successfully. The method developed will be validated through physical testing in the wind tunnel and on road.

The first step, towards the licentiate degree, is a two-year project dedicated producing multi discipline evaluation methods involving simulation tools suitable for the task. Your work involves developing and validating a methodology to evaluate and quantify the experience of high speed stability.

Your work will involve detailed studies of aerodynamic forces interacting with vehicle dynamic response models.

You will report to the Erik Preihs, CEVT AB, as well as to your Supervisor Associate Professor, Simone Sebben, Head of Division VEAS at Chalmers University of Technology

Responsibilities and tasks
• Build a multi-disciplinary simulation model taking care of aero stability as well as chassis stability
• Perform physical tests to validate and improve numerical models.
• Develop control strategies to understand how we can develop stability efficiently.
• Fulfill the academic requirements for a licentiate degree as first step and later a dissertation for a technical doctoral degree.
• Deliver reports to the organization giving financial support to this research project.
• At regular intervals, gather a relevant reference group.

Profile and Background
• Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent
• Good knowledge in Fluid Mechanics
• Good knowledge in Vehicle dynamics
• Knowledge and interest in simulation tools
• Fluent in English, both verbally and written.
• Driver’s license.
• Ability to develop & apply solutions to complex problems.
• The candidate must have a genuine interest in vehicles and its dynamics
• Ability to independently initiate and drive tasks in a dynamic work environment
• Interest and awareness of cultural differences and diversity

Meritorious educational qualifications
• Experience of working in aerodynamic wind tunnels
• Experience with experimental measurement equipment
• Relevant working experience at OEM

For the application, we require your CV, a cover letter stating why you are applying for the position, a copy of the diploma and the grades at Master level.
