A thesis project at Scania is an excellent way of making contacts for your future working life. Many of our current employees started their career with a thesis project.

Scania works continuously to develop intake, chassis, cab and engine components which enables Scania to remain a premium brand. As simulation-driven development grows, so does also the need for improved and reliable methods to obtain high simulation quality and quicker iterations.

Everyday work within product development and optimization is today mainly carried out by using steady state CFD simulation methods; the aim of this thesis work is to investigate the possibility of using time-dependent simulations instead. This will provide a better understanding of several issues related to exhaust after treatment systems. The expected outcome of this thesis work is to evaluate whether or not steady state simulations are a good way to approximate long-time transient phenomena, and to provide a feasible alternative way to model them.

Preferred experiences:
  • Masters student in mechanical engineering, or similar.
  • Flow mechanics
  • Star-CCM+ or other CFD codes

Number of students: 1
Start date: January 2020

Estimated time needed: 20 weeks

Contact persons and supervisors:

Giacomo Vavassori, Supervisor, 08-553 80 605

Enclose CV, personal letter and school-leaving certificate.

Selection will be done continuously.
