Motion Technologies is one of four ITT Value Centers focused on the Transportation industry. The Motion Technologies Value Center generates over $862M in revenues and is made up of three businesses.

Position Summary:

As an Analysis Engineer within our NVH R&D Engineering team, you will play a critical role in the development of a next generation modeling software interface that can we used internally and by our customers to reduce testing iterations to find NVH solutions on brake systems. You will be an innovative and skilled problem solver, using all analytical tools available to you. You will be both technically innovative as an individual, and as an active member in a diverse and challenging cross-functional team environment.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for creating, analyzing and optimizing a new state-of-the-art finite element (FE) model using Abaqus software to advance us to the next level beyond our competition

  • Perform advanced brake NVH simulations with Abaqus to create a software interface to perform modeling on brake systems focusing on the brake shim contribution to reducing brake noise.

  • Develop novel methodologies to enable fast and accurate solutions if current analytical tools are insufficient or do not exist

  • Use correlated simulations and work closely with cross-functional engineering teams to reduce time to NVH solutions.

The above is intended to describe the general content of, and the requirements for, the performance of this position.
