Scania genomgår nu en transformation från att vara en leverantör av lastbilar, bussar och motorer till en leverantör av kompletta och hållbara transportlösningar.
Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions.
In order to ensure that continuous improvements are achieved and that waste is eliminated during the development of new products, extensive digital and physical testing is performed. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and correlation with physical testing of chassis components is an integral part of Scania’s product development.
A Master’s Thesis completed at Scania is an excellent way of experiencing and contributing to a dynamic research and development organisation whilst establishing a broad professional network.Background
Bolts are one of the most common fastening elements on a truck. The durability and robustness of bolts are therefore essential for the operation and safety of the vehicle and the community. Numerous simulation methods exist to evaluate the durability of bolts. However, there are cases where the predictions from simulations do not fully align with the results from test.Aim:
To investigate, identify and document, in the form of a Master’s Thesis written in English, the shortcomings and potential improvements to the existing simulation methods used to evaluate bolted joints.Assignment:Correlate simulation results with physical test data
- Investigate the sensitivity of the simulation results to a number of parameters with the aim to improve the correlation
- Identify and investigate possible improvements to the simulation methods
Master of Engineering or Science student with an interest in structural and dynamic FEA analysis.
