Aircraft accident and incident investigations should be supported by all engineering disciplines and departments involved with design, manufacturing, certification, and field operations. For individuals called upon to serve as advisors or technical representatives to official aircraft accident investigation (AAI) teams, an understanding of aircraft accident investigation and reconstruction methodology and processes is critical to success in this supportive role. This two-day seminar will begin with the basic requirements for conducting proper accident investigations, including investigative philosophies and procedures.

This seminar is designed to provide gear novices with a general understanding of gear nomenclature, geometry, and arrangements. Starting with the basic definition of gears, conjugate motion and the "Laws of Gearing", you will gain a solid understanding of gearing and the fundamentals of rotary motion transfer through gear-trains. Gear classifications, tooth forms and geometry, and very high-level application considerations, manufacturing processes, and inspection techniques will be covered. Attendees will receive a copy of the book, Gear Design Simplified, by Franklin D. Jones & Henry H. Ryffel.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an enabling technology that has been widely adopted in the retail industry. The powers of RFID are acknowledged by many, but a lack of understanding of the technology, its limitations, and how to select the right plan for its target installation has slowed efforts to migrate the technology into the aerospace, space, and transportation industries. While RFID is not a new technology, the rate at which it has been integrated into the aerospace industry has been slow due to unique considerations regarding qualification, regulations, and safety. New Department of Defense (DoD) policies requiring an integrated materiel supply chain process that fully supports military operational requirements will further advance the use of RFID technologies.

The rapidly evolving demand for cost reductions and shrinking budgets makes the application and use of automated processes within the aerospace and space industries a necessity. While some view aerospace automation as the solution to reducing costs, others view automation technologies and processes as something that should be avoided when possible. Misunderstandings and assumptions about these complex systems can result in the improper selection and application of these systems, often leading to undesirable interactions with other elements of the assembly process and potentially, project failure.

The challenges associated with using composites as a replacement for aluminum reside primarily in the complex manufacturing processes and technologies for fabricating composite parts. The high cost of composites material and its manufacturing complexity have been inhibitors to the wide transfer of this technology to the non-aerospace market. The search for solutions to high manufacturing costs and efficient manufacturing processes have resulted in intense research by government, aerospace industry companies, and space agencies worldwide. This one day seminar will introduce participants to composites technologies that have applications beyond aerospace, including such markets as trucks, automobiles, and wind turbines.

Rapid advances have been made in the range of available designs and operational parameters as well as in the fundamental understanding of compact heat exchangers (CHEs). Since the majority of modern heat exchangers used for heating and cooling systems for vehicular applications are CHEs, keeping up to date with these advances is essential. This seminar will help you understand and be able to apply comprehensive information about the intricacies of CHE design, performance, operating problems and state-of-the-art-technology for car and truck applications.

Side impact crashes account for approximately twenty-six percent of all motor vehicle fatal crashes, second only to frontal crashes, according to a report by the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA). While car companies and suppliers continue to develop new technologies that make vehicles safer, NHTSA rolled out updated safety regulations (FMVSS 214) based on new research studies, making vehicle safety design more and more complex. This seminar is designed to familiarize participants with the engineering principles behind vehicle and restraint designs for occupant safety.

Note: Attendees of the Professional Development Seminar that is being held in conjunction with the SAE 2014 On-Board Diagnostics Symposium are able to attend the Symposium at a 10% discount (which is over and above any member level discount). If interested, please contact our Customer Service department at +1.877.606.7323 (U.S. and Canada only) or +1.724.776.4970 (outside U.S. and Canada) to register for this special event daily rate. On-board diagnostics, required by governmental regulations, provide a means for reducing harmful pollutants into the environment. Since being mandated in 1996, the regulations have continued to evolve and require engineers to design systems that meet strict guidelines.

The Controller Area Network has become the standard of choice for most automotive manufacturers. Approved for use as an ISO and EPA diagnostic network, its usage continues to grow. This seminar covers the theory and use of the CAN protocol, and its applications in the automotive industry. Details on how the CAN protocol and other standards (J2411, J2284, J1939, ISO 11898, etc.) complement each other will be presented. Attendees will learn about CAN application layers; the latest J1939, J2284, J2411, and IDB standards, regulations, and implementation requirements; and details of device hardware and software interfaces.

Understanding the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) requirements, processes, and product development lifecycle allows for more effective new product engineering and development within the DoD marketplace. In addition, understanding how industry can apply currently available commercial vehicle technologies as a platform to meet current and future DoD needs may become an important factor in reducing costs and conforming to DoD budget constraints. The overall objective of this two day seminar is to establish a working knowledge of the military tactical vehicle product development process. The instructor will provide attendees an in-depth explanation of the DoD product development lifecycle.

Improved understanding and control of ignition and thereby combustion are critical in dealing with the problems of pollutants formation, engine performance, and fuel economy. This seminar will provide you with basic knowledge and recent advances in combustion-initiation (ignition) issues to more intelligently evaluate and harness their potentials. Thermodynamic and fluid mechanical properties of the unburned charge near the spark plug and at the time of ignition strongly affect the quality of the combustion and therefore the emission of the pollutants from the engine. Furthermore, a weak ignition limits engine performance and drivability.
