Posting Date:  Nov 4, 2022
Company:  AVL List GmbH

Graz, AT, 8020

Job ID:  25418

AVL is the world’s largest independent company for development, simulation and testing in the automotive industry, and in other sectors. As a global technology leader, AVL provides concepts, solutions and methodologies in the fields of e-mobility, ADAS and autonomous driving, vehicle integration, digitalization, virtualization, Big Data, and much more.

We offer a diploma thesis with the topic of

Thesis Condition Failure Monitoring - Simulation of Testbed Failures

and its Response in Measurement Signal and CFM

Condition Monitoring (CM) is widely used in industry for testing and tracking components as well as whole assembly status over testing time. Condition Failure Monitoring (CFM) is also able to combine measurement data and calculate based on them the failure + failure prediction. This advanced algorithm can detect many kind of failures which are not only occurring separately, they are mostly overlapped in the data and not directly visible. To see the effects of different failures on CFM, single events has to be evaluated and post-processed in the algorithm.





  • Develop a 1D and/or 3D MDS model of a simplified testbed using MBS software
  • Extend MBS model and include detailed representation of certain components for failure modeling
  • Simulate effect of failure in CFM algorithm and define failure limits based on results
  • Literature study




  • Programming skills (Python)
  • Technical understanding of base components
  • Motivation




  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Technical Physics


The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR €2.600,00 before tax.

According to the Austrian Employment of Foreign Nationals Act it is unfortunately not possible to assign graduate work to third-country citizens (Non-EU citizens) who study at a university abroad


AVL is not just about cars. It's about changing the future. Together.
