Master Thesis Multibodysimulation – Development of a cutting force model (m/f/d)
What's the role?
We are looking as of October for a highly motivated student (m/f/d), who has a profound knowledge and is passionate about simulation. You are enrolled in a master’s course and you want to apply your theoretical knowledge in mechanics and manufacturing technology on a real application. Then this master thesis is just right for you!
Who is Hilti?
We develop, manufacture and sell cutting-edge products, technology, software and services for the global construction industry. Hilti stands for innovation, quality and direct customer relationships.
From the construction, simulation and design of the products, to the production of our own prototypes, to system testing and certification of our power tools - our innovation comes from our own research and development laboratories.
With 30,000 employees in more than 120 countries, we're a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow in your career.
What does the role involve?
During your thesis you are part of the simulation team and you will help on the further development of our simulation models. The goal of the thesis is the further development of a cutting force model, which is implemented in a multibodysimulation model. The cutting force model describes the cutting process with its’ dynamics and considers the influences of the cut materials and the cutting geometry of the used insert. You will validate the cutting force model by measurement data. After the first validation you will implement the model in a multibodysimulation model of a power tool as a submodel. Based on additional measurement data you will validate the full power tool model together with the implemented cutting force model. In the end you will perform parameter studies to analyse the influence of the system parameters on the dynamics of the full power tool model.
What do we offer?
We offer you a unique place to work, in which you are part of a creative and interdisciplinary team. At Hilti, you get everything you need to develop and succeed during your studies.
In addition, we offer you innovative Benefits, such as fitness and health offers.
Integrity, courage, teamwork and commitment are essential for Hilti – both today and tomorrow. We are proud to say that we not only talk about our values, but also live them every day.
Why should you apply?
You have profound knowledge and are passionate about simulation topics! You also have first experience with modelling as well as in the field of analysing and interpreting simulation results and you want to apply your theoretical knowledge in mechanics on a real application.
What you need is:
- Enrolled in a master’s study for mechanical engineering or a comparable course
- Knowledge in the field of mechanics
- Basic knowledge in the fields of manufacturing technology and vibration technology advantageous
- Programming skills in Matlab, C/C++ or comparable program
- Structured and independent way of working
- Team orientation and strong communication skills
During your job interview you will spend some time with us and get to know our company. Thus you will get a feeling for the job and our corporate culture.
Hilti stands for equal opportunities. We are looking forward to receiving applications from severely disabled persons and similarly disabled persons.
