Lead Simulation Engineer
Are you looking for a creative and stimulating job with enthusiastic and highly skilled colleagues? Would you like to be a key player within transmission analysis? In addition, you will have the possibility to develop the future sustainable transport solutions together with us. We stand in front of challenging demands – where reducing the CO2 emissions is one of the biggest – and are now creating new products, conventional powertrains as well as electrified.
If you want to be a part of this, please join us at Volvo Group!
Transmission Simulation and System Design is a group with 14 engineers, within department Driveline, Powertrain Engineering Sweden. The Sweden organization has the full worldwide product platform responsibility for Heavy Duty Powertrains, and of the installation in European Volvo products. We participate in all stages of the product cycle – from advanced engineering to industrial development and maintenance.
Our group is responsible for transmission analyses within many different areas: FEA, 1D flow, 1D mechanical, CFD, as well as system layout and gear design. We perform simulations to optimize durability, weight, efficiency and noise/vibration to support our HW design teams and in order to bring our customers world-class products.
As a Simulation Engineer you will plan, lead and perform computer aided analysis of transmissions with 1D flow and 3D CFD models. These gearboxes will be installed in conventional and hybrid drivelines, as well as electrified power units. You will support project leaders and design engineers in all project phases with technical solutions. You are involved in concept design and new technologies at Driveline. GT-Suite, StarCCM+ and ANSA will be your main tools.
It is expected that you present and explain your results at meetings as well as in technical reports. You are responsible for method and tool development and will initiate and write Simulation Instructions. You will train and mentor less experienced colleagues within your field.
To be successful in your new role, we believe you have the following skills/experience:
  • Master of Science or higher in Mechanical Engineering with focus on Applied Mechanics or equivalent
  • Previous experience of transmission analysis from product development or research
  • Work experience of 1D flow simulations in the industry, preferably by using GT-Suite
  • Experience from working with CFD and in the tools ANSA / StarCCM+
  • Programming competence in Matlab or Python is a strong merit
  • Fluent in English, written and spoken
We think that you have a genuine technical interest, especially in mechanical systems. You need to be able to work both independently and in cross functional teams. You need to have the ability to explain your results and conclusions in a structured and pedagogical way to your colleagues and stakeholders. As an experienced simulation engineer, you are a natural go-to person.
