Req ID:375181 

Leading societies to a low carbon future, Alstom develops and markets mobility solutions that provide the sustainable foundations for the future of transportation. Our product portfolio ranges from high-speed trains, metros, monorail, and trams to integrated systems, customised services, infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions. Joining us means joining a caring, responsible, and innovative company where more than 70,000 people lead the way to greener and smarter mobility, worldwide 

In the context of Product Engineering development, the Vibroacoustic engineer will participate in project/offer development through the application of internal procedures including Vibroacoustic management of projects, standard Vibroacoustic simulation and measurements of Rolling Stock and Components. 

In case of assignment to R&D tasks, he/she will be in charge of the development of methodologies and technologies related to Vibroacoustics of Rolling Stock and Components.


Main responsibilities:

  • To apply the Vibroacoustic Engineering Instructions and guidelines to perform the project/offers tasks
  • To perform the Vibroacoustic analysis of tenders by comparison with referent solutions and previous projects
  • To Prepare the Vibroacoustic specifications and Vibroacoustic Management Plan (VAMP) to be applied in projects
  • To choose the most efficient way to perform the allocation (experimental/numerical), verification and validation during tender and project phase
  • To allocate the different noise sources and train assemblies through the use of AT standard methodologies.
  • To perform standard Vibroacoustics tests, to postprocess the data and report to validate prediction models and type tests. Testing could take place on line, in depots or factories throughout the world; possible destinations are (not a complete list): anywhere in Europe, Middle East, India, South America, USA.
  • To perform standard Vibroacoustic simulations for exterior noise and interior noise using inhouse developed tools
