Structural Suspension

Main Task

The structural suspension connects the unsprung mass to the chassi through links, springs, dampers hubs and uprights. The design of the links is highly related to car performance out of a vehicle dynamics perspective, hence you will be working close with vehicle dynamics. The job includes a lot of CAD and FEA.

Your Profile

You should have a solid knowledge in structural and solid mechanics and preferably an understanding of how a car suspension works, though not a requirement. You need to be comfortable in CAD and Matlab. You should also have great communication skills in order to create a well designed suspension system.
