We are looking for candidates with experience in prototype vehicle development, knowledge of suspension systems and component characteristics, and a well-grounded understanding of vehicle dynamics principles.
You should be proficient in the use of Adams MBD software to build and modify sub-system and assembly models.
The purpose of these roles is to conduct the 'Load cascade' process to estimate individual component loads based on RLD using a virtual test rig, so an understanding of RLD acquisition methods and data would, therefore be useful.

Undertake modelling and analysis activities using MSC.Adams software to support component and vehicle design and development
Build and analyse MSC.Adams vehicle, subsystem and test rig models
* Undertake and report the assessment of vehicle dynamics attributes

Use of MSC.Adams (including "Adams Car") in an automotive consultancy or manufacturer
* Good understanding of vehicle dynamics attributes
* Experience of applying MSC.Adams to K&C attributes of vehicles
* Use of Adams to correlate models to test results
* Use of Adams to optimise vehicle attributes

For these roles, a high level of organisation is required to manage the test data provided and to apply and assess the information correctly. You will conduct correlation of predicted accelerations and displacements against measured data prior to the release of component time histories for durability analysis.
Effective communication skills will be required to liaise directly with members of the RLD team and external project partners to share data.
