About this vacancy
Do you want to have a key role in reducing CO2 emissions of DAF vehicles?
For the Technical Analysis department we are looking for a Technical Analyst Fuel Economy and CO2 simulations. The stringent requirements on CO2 emissions in the coming years will force the truck industry to put a lot of effort in further optimizing conventional vehicle concepts but also focus more and more on alternative powertrain concepts.
You will support the development of new vehicle projects and Advanced Technology projects by means of numerical simulations. The main focus of the development is on improving the powertrain by including and optimizing hybrid/electrification functionality and investigating alternative zero-emission powertrain concepts.
You are responsible for:
- Building and improving vehicle simulations models for a broad range of advanced powertrain concepts, incl. model validation;
- Performing simulations and analyses on fuel economy/energy consumption, CO2 emissions on vehicle and total fleet level and drive ability performance;
- Processing the analyses to conclusions and design recommendations including reporting on technical as well as management level;
- Defining and managing simulation plans on fuel economy & CO2 emissions;
- Aligning the activities and deliverables with Vehicle Definition, Vehicle Testing and Vehicle Engineering departments and in global context with other PACCAR divisions;
- Maintaining the domain knowledge by following the new technologies in the field of fuel economy, CO2 emissions and alternative powertrains;
- Improving the CAE capabilities by introducing and implementing new methods and processes at DAF and other PACCAR divisions;
As Technical Analyst Fuel Economy and CO2 simulations you will report to the Engineering Supervisor Technical Analysis.
This Technical Analysis department consists of a team with 12 specialists, responsible for the numerical verification and validations of new vehicle concepts and vehicle designs within the Product Development division. By means of simulations, new developments on vehicle and system level are evaluated and optimized for different vehicle performance aspects: fuel economy and CO2 emission, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, NVH, vehicle handling, crash safety, durability. These simulations support the design process from the first concept ideas to the final validation and sign-off of the truck design.
