Industrial PhD Within Vehicle Integration at Chalmers University of Technology

A PhD scholarship in mechanical engineering is available at Chalmers University of Technology. Potential candidates should apply before November 30, 2018.

CEVT is an innovation center for the future cars of the Geely Group. We develop mobility solutions for a different tomorrow, we occupy some 2000 people and are based in Gothenburg.

Industrial PhD within Vehicle Integration - Future Ride Comfort and NVH

The Vehicle Integration unit at CEVT is responsible for the development of customer unique selling points in terms of fulfilling attribute requirements in a customer profile. Typically, different disciplines like Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH), Energy consumption, Chassis, Ride and handling are continuously evaluated via virtual development tools. These tools are applied in development projects in a gate structure and are the core of CEVT knowhow for fast development.

With the current refinement level of vehicles – Ride Comfort and NVH are becoming increasingly important attributes in the development of new vehicles and platforms. These attributes are also market dependent.

Major change to vehicle usage in the future through electrification is one example, but also when vehicles are running in Autonomous Driving mode. When the vehicles will run partly or completely in Autonomous Driving mode it will also change how the driver and the passengers perceive the Ride Comfort and NVH.

As an industrial PhD, you will be employed by the CEVT Vehicle Integration team and connected to Chalmers University of Technology, Division Design & Human Factors and Division of Applied Acoustics, as a full-time PhD. You will report to the Erik Preihs, CEVT AB, as well as to your main scientific supervisor Anna-Lisa Osvalder, Professor in Human-Machine Systems.

For this Industrial PhD project CEVT wants to cover the two specific technical areas, Ride Comfort and NVH, as they are strongly related regarding how the occupants in the vehicle perceive them and technically in the development process.

As an industrial PhD you will develop core methodology for increasing CEVT knowhow in vehicle development.

The focus in this project is on improving the understanding of how future demands will change the requirements and perception of Ride in combination with the new NVH levels and techniques that need to be developed due to new driving habits and behaviors. The objective is to deepen the knowledge about the opportunities of large-scale simulation models to influence the early design phase as well as making a technology roadmap to further explore opportunities.
