The Company:
Our Client is a world leading Automotive OEM which is responsible for some of the most iconic 4x4's & Sports Cars produced. Due to the huge demand for current models and substantial investment in future projects there is a requirement for more resources across the business in engineering & manufacturing on a contract basis.

The Role:
Development of CAE/virtual techniques across company product development testing areas. The role involves the application of CAE toolsets to determine strength, stiffness, and fatigue performance of test rig components and assemblies. Additionally, the role involves the development of new techniques to more closely align the virtual (CAE) and physical testing environments. Example of projects include development of techniques to derive virtual road load data using multibody simulation tools, virtual proving ground events and physical multi-axis test rigs.

Additional Information :

Positions are predominantly based from Gaydon, although infrequent travel to Whitley may be required.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
- Experience of the following tools sets ideally applied within an automotive environment, to assess strength, stiffness and fatigue: Abaqus, hyperworks, Catia V5 CAE.
- Knowledge of multibody simulation tools, including SimPack and the use of multiaxis tyre models (FTyre) Good knowledge of stress/strain and fatigue theory
- Minimum five years experience working in a CAE environment, ideally within the automotive sector (chassis or body).
- Currently working on projects carrying out linear and non linear CAE projects to define component strengths, stiffnesses and fatigue performance and/or carrying out Multibody simulations to determine system performance/ load predictions

Desirable Skills / Qualifications:
- Knowledge of methods of mapping physical proving ground events to create virtual surfaces for use within a CAE environment
- Knowledge of MSC ADAMS
- Knowledge and application of Ncode fatigue software
- Knowledge of methods of creating virtual Road Load Data
- Knowledge/experience of mapping physical proving events to create virtual/synthetic equivalents
- Ideally degree qualified in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline
- Formal training in CAE tools highlighted above
