NVH researcher

Job Description

Test and simulation solutions for tire NVH


We are looking for a researcher to join the Simcenter Engineering Services RTD team in Leuven, Belgium, for a duration of 24 months. You will carry out research studies as defined in different tasks of a project focused on noise vibration and harshness (NVH) characterization of tires, under supervision of the RTD manager.

Concretely, your work will aim at the exploration of techniques for identification of structural vibration behavior of rolling tires and the resultant transfer of noise to the vehicle. This will involve assessment of advanced measurement techniques and test set-up design with the goal of developing an effective workflow for experimental tire characterization. CAE simulation models will also be developed in parallel to generate hybrid test-CAE solutions.

Company background

The Simulation and Test Solutions (STS) segment of Siemens Software is responsible for the Simcenter portfolio. This portfolio includes a complete suite for test-based engineering, an integrated 3D simulation and analysis platform and a multi-disciplinary system performance simulation platform, complemented by Simcenter Engineering Services. Engineering Services supports customers throughout the product development cycle with its unique combination of engineering skills, development experience and process know-how, for key performance attributes of the vehicle, such as noise and vibration, ride and handling, durability, etc. The Simcenter Engineering Services RTD team develops methodologies and applications to answer future customer needs.
