FEM – Motor & Drivetrain

Main Task

The drivetrain system transfers torque from the motor to the wheels. You will be responsible for drivetrain component design and it’s integration to suspension and frame. As responsible for FEM Motor & Drivetrain your task is also to aid the different subsystems in their FEM-analysis as well as being responsible for fine tuning the design of the Motor & Drivetrain. Since no major changes of the Motor & Drivetrain are planned for LFS24 that includes finding alternative manufacturing methods and materials.

Your Profile

You should have an interest in computational mechanics and be comfortable in CAD. It is beneficial to have basic knowledge in transmissions and FEM-methodology as well. Previous experience in Ansys is also beneficial, but also not a requirement. You should also have great communication skills in order to create a well designed and integrated drivetrain system.
