What will you do?
As a Lead Analyst – Thermal Management, you will be responsible to lead and conduct predictive 1D simulations in thermal management area using current and develop new methods to improve the accuracy of virtual simulations with reference to physical test results.
  • As a 1D simulation analyst you would closely interact with Thermal management system architects to analyze various system architecture proposals and support in defining/set the system with inclusion of performance data from project engineers &/ component owners.
  • Expected to develop, static and dynamic system models with continual improvement in simulation accuracy with reference to 3D CFD &/ physical test results with close collaboration with our system architects, 3D sim. Analysts, component and test engineers.
  • Support system architects to define/set the component level performance requirements in early phase of projects and also enable our colleagues to share recommendation while selecting the concept of component w.r.t thermal performance.
  • Support system architects in analyzing the system performance at various stages of project with various inputs and contribute in finalizing the efficient thermal system.
  • Support system responsible and architects in definition of test method and share your inputs in finalizing the list of parameters to record in physical test by test engineers that could help maximize the accuracy of simulation with test result correlation.
  • Contribute with component and system engineers to define and verify the actions agreed related to virtual simulation in FMEA, to reduce the probability occurrence
  • Establish a Strong Network with Global Counterparts and Cross functions.
  • Contribute to global 1D simulation network in defining the simulation roadmap and knowledge management of learnings for re-use.
  • Take full responsibility and independently deliver the planned tasks as well as guide our junior analysts within our Thermal Management Simulation, Integration & Testing
  • Develop the strategy to integrate Data, machine learning in the models
Your role will strengthen our Global Thermal Management Sub-Stream and contribute to Volvo GTT vision within this technology area.

Relevant Experience
  • Hands on experience of GT-Suite 1D simulation software specially in thermal management applications
  • Hands on experience with MATLAB Simulink to analyze dynamic thermal systems
  • Advanced knowledge of heat transfer, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics
  • Knowledge of the product development life cycle and change management activities for maintenance are required for this role
  • Leading tasks independently, good planning and monitoring skills
  • Should have experience in leading small teams
  • Experience in 3D CFD, Hotspot simulations is a merit
  • Experience in energy management calculations in thermal systems is a merit
  • Experience in PYTHON and its integration to software is a merit
  • Experience in future technologies (e-MOB, Fuel Cell, automation) in 1D/3D simulations is a plus
  • Working experience in testing of vehicle thermal management area is a plus
  • A team player, high on energy and is interested in working with global sites.
  • Innovative and creative mindset to recommend engineering solutions
  • Willingness to learn and develop your own skills and abilities
  • Good in compiling and presenting information verbally and in writing
Applicants shall have BE /ME in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent with more than 8 years of industrial experience
