Duties and Responsibilities:
Derive safety targets and Develop crash load path for front, side and rear structures balancing all applicable Global Safety Requirements for specific areas of responsibility (i.e. Frontal impact & Side Impact - FMVSS/ECE/EURONCAP/USNCAP etc.,)
Perform advanced CAE simulations to evaluate and enhance full vehicle crashworthiness performance in conjunction with occupant safety.
Establish processes in creating virtual models – mesh generation, cae subsystem organization, compatible independent include structure creation and templates for efficient post processing.
Develop and apply advanced safety/crash methodologies and analysis techniques to drive innovation into product development.
·Support subsystem level & full vehicle crash tests in line with standard protocols and best practices required to generate CAE prediction models.
Perform post-crash test analysis, correlate CAE to test results, improve the accuracy in CAE models thereby improving the model predictability.
Develop appropriate highly predictable failure models of materials and Joints to enable good correlations with physical tests.
Conduct optimization studies by utilizing optimization CAE tools, including DOE/ DFSS techniques on vehicle designs to meet performance requirements with the constraints of mass and cost.
Perform analyses for feasibility for manufacturing, assembly and service processes.
Provide input in the creation of component specification, component DFMEA, and other technical design documents where analysis plays a pivotal role.
Produce concise management summaries and report-outs that meet the needs of management system functions.
Generate all safety targets that will form part of the agreed program targets, with both internal and external resources.
Responsible for development of all passive safety systems, BIW, Interiors & Exteriors drawing from a considerable depth of all safety load cases, from both a legislative & consumer test point of view, Including frontal, side, rear crashes.
