Job description

Your project

Develop a simulation model for anisotropic bushing behaviour

Your mission will be to develop and validate an efficient lumped parameters model for toe correct bushing. These are suspension elements that improve handling performance, but are not easy to implement efficiently in simulation models. You will use virtual and physical testing results to evaluate main toe correction effects; then, you will build up on the capabilities of a high end multibody software to improve simulation of such bushing behaviour.
