About the job

Development of a new oil pan for heavy duty truck engines

Background
The oil pan on heavy duty truck engines is mounted at an exposed position underneath the engine block. Trucks driving in harsh environments can easily damage the skid plate and oil pan, which can lead to oil leakage and therefore truck downtime.

Objective
The task is to develop a durable oil pan for trucks driving in rough terrain.

Methods
Perform a pre study to evaluate how to design the oil pan to be durable when driving in rough terrain. This can be done using litterateur, interview or benchmarking. Generate and evaluate concepts of how the oil pan can be designed. Investigate material selection and manufacturing processes.

Deliverables
A report including:

- Benchmark study
- A proposal for redesign of the oil pan
