Description of the job

Are you looking for a final year project? Would you like to discover the work in the field of Aircraft Ground Development? Then apply now! We look forward to you joining us at the Hydro mechanical Systems department.

Location: Manching
Start: Summer 2019
Duration: 6 months

Airbus is facing new challenges and demands in the scope of digitalization. In order to remain a competitive player in the global aircraft market, conventional methods and processes of systems engineering need to be reconsidered aiming to reduce development time and subsequently increase productivity. The use of enhanced simulation/analysis tools is one of the key elements in this context.
The Hydro mechanical Systems department of Airbus Defence and Space in Manching currently assesses different ground control concepts for future aircraft, focusing on steering and braking. For system and equipment design, it is essential to understand the interaction between the involved control elements and the dynamic behaviour of the aircraft.
The scope of this master thesis is to develop a ground control logic in MATLAB Simulink, including command allocation to brakes, nose wheel steering and rudder.

Tasks & accountabilities

Your exciting topic:
- Familiarization with existing A/C ground dynamics model
- Specification of directional and deceleration control requirements
- Development of directional and deceleration control logic including command allocation to brakes, nose wheel steering and rudder
- Validation of the control logic
- Documentation and presentation

This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.

Required skills

You offer:
- Enrolled student (m/f/d) within Aerospace/mechanical engineering or similar
- Good knowledge of classical mechanics
- Good knowledge of control theory
- Knowledge of software modelling (MATLAB/Simulink)
- General PC knowledge (Windows, MS Office)
- English: fluent level
- Good teamwork and communication skills
- Capable of working independently
