  • Conduct transient analysis of powertrain systems using MBD tools such as ADAMS, Transmission Builder to analyze various NVH error states using both rigid body and flexible body methods.
  • Develop new NVH CAE methods for powertrain systems and components to support and resolve issues like whine, clunk and low speed torque shudder
  • Present powertrain CAE results to powertrain NVH test/development and design teams.
  • Report powertrain CAE results to management for program analytical assessments against targets required for design sign-off.
