Master Thesis “Evaluation of methods for the model-based identification of dynamic parameters of freight wagons”

Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH, Graz

VIRTUAL VEHICLE is a leading international R&D center for the automotive and rail industries. The center focuses on advanced virtualization of vehicle development. This linking of numerical simulations and hardware testing leads to a powerful HW-SW system design.

The maintenance process of freight wagons and their components is currently mainly based on fixed inspection intervals. These conservative intervals lead to correspondingly high maintenance costs. The trend towards condition-based maintenance is therefore towards cost optimization. However, this strategy requires continuous knowledge of the relevant conditions of the wagon components in operation. In this thesis, system parameters and component states of a mechanical analogous system of a freight wagon are to be identified using modelbased methods and the methods used are to be evaluated.

Your tasks:

  • Measurement of dynamic state variables on a test bench
  • Modelling of the dynamic system
  • Comparison of different methods of describing and identifying system parameters and component states
  • Creation of a dictionary for different use cases

Your profile:

  • Ongoing technical studies (Physics, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Automotive/Vehicle Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering or similar)
  • Basics in Technical Mechanics, Multi-Body-Dynamics, System Identification
  • Great knowledge of Matlab, Simulink and Python

OFFER

  • Collaboration and contribution in an engaged, dynamic team
  • Interesting work in an international research center
  • Paid Thesis
  • Mentoring programme
  • Professional and personal development opporturnities
  • Diverse sports and health activities
  • Corporate events
