Job description:

What to expect

The successful candidate will be responsible for the structural analysis and development of Chassis Components, Systems and Interfaces.

Working as part of a team of CAE engineers, this role will include
* Detailed Finite Element Analysis of chassis structural components (e.g. Subframes, Knuckles, Suspension Links, Wheels, etc) against defined analysis standards and procedures
* Detailed assessment of chassis interfaces against defined analysis standards and procedures
* Clear reporting of analysis results and recommendations to allow development of parts
* Close interaction with the Component Delivery team and CAD team

Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities

* Support development of Automotive Components/Systems using engineering knowledge and experience combined with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) techniques, to meet chassis performance targets
Run CAE analysis, summarise results and feedback conclusions to colleagues Work with design teams to develop and optimise solutions considering multi-attributes within defined deadlines and time constraintsUtilise product knowledge and awareness of potential design constraints (packaging, manufacturing etc.) to ensure due consideration is given in developing solutionsSupport projects and teams including the feedback of results as required through design / project reviews * Support and present at design reviews with key stakeholders: Centre of Competence component design teams, PAT teams, packaging teams, Programme teams
