AVL is the world's largest independent company for development of powertrains (combustion engines, hybrid systems, electric drive) as well as simulation and test systems for passenger cars, trucks and marine engines.
We offer a master thesis:
Modelling and simulation of dynamic behavior of hydraulic elements (e.g. chain tensioner) in combustion engine application
Hydraulic elements play a major role in modern engine timing drives (e.g. hydraulic valve lash adjustment & hydraulic chain tensioner) and can strongly influence the system dynamics. Therefore an accurate model of this elements is essential for the correct prediction of the timing drive behavior in dynamic simulations.
Within this work we offer an insight into the dynamic simulation of modern engines. The goal of the work is to improve the predictability of the dynamic behavior of hydraulic elements. Therefore existing simulation models shall be validated with data from measurements. Based on this, a model adaption/development will lead to improved predictability of the dynamic behavior of this elements.
