Multibody Dynamics Simulation w/ Rivian Automotive LLC (Plymouth, MI):

Duties:  Develop comprehensive low-level subsystem models in Adams and high-level vehicle models in CarMaker to investigate suspension characteristics and overall driving dynamics. Evaluate chassis architectural decisions using simulation models and vehicle dynamics knowledge, with respect to the following areas: Handling; Steering; Acceleration; Braking; and Ride comfort. Improve model fidelity by correlating simulation results to experimental data. Check dynamic clearances between chassis and body components throughout travel and loading scenarios, taking into consideration bushing rates and suspension component compliances. Utilize Multi-Body Dynamics model to output component loads to the CAE team for use in durability simulations. Develop tool sets and automation scripts in Python or Matlab to improve various aspects of the virtual chassis development process. Schedule and support kinematics and compliance tests, tire characterizations and vehicle mass and inertia measurements, and use this data to further the development of Rivian’s chassis systems. Iterate with and provide feedback to bushing, damper, anti-roll bar and spring suppliers. Manage and add to the Chassis Definition Sheet which informs the rest of the company and the supply base of the chassis specifics. Cross-functionally communicate and interact with design, strategy, sourcing, other engineering systems, and the rest of the development team.

 Requirements: Requires a Master’s degree in Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field.  Requires 4 years of related experience, which must include some experience in the following: Vehicle dynamics simulation tools; Modeling, analysis and optimization of different suspension topologies; Interpreting suspension and tire test data for simulation models; Vehicle dynamics target setting on component and system-levels based on program requirements and benchmarking; Scripting or toolset development in Python or Matlab
