The vehicle-terrain interaction in an off-road environment creates unique challenges for designers of both wheeled and tracked off-road vehicles. Not only should vehicle designers have a working knowledge of the fundamentals of on-road vehicle dynamics, they should also have the specialized knowledge of the vehicle dynamic characteristics found in construction, agriculture, and military off-road vehicles. This one-day seminar concentrates on the basics of off-highway trucks and the differences with their on-highway counterparts.

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.

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.

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.

Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 1:00 pm In the past few decades, product liability law has dramatically changed the manufacturer's outlook in the design and manufacture of product. The concept of safety and reliability has been altered from a purely engineering/manufacturing concept to a legal/manufacturing approach. This new approach requires an understanding of legal concepts as related to the manufacturing and design process. The engineer's role has shifted to include a safety audit analysis to minimize the existence of a product defect and/or to defend the product in a way that is responsive to the legal concerns.

Design reviews are required for ISO 9001:2000 compliance and compatible automotive and aerospace specifications. They are becoming increasingly important in product liability litigation and are accepted as a cost-effective best practice and an effective application of knowledge management, valuable for accelerating the maturity of new products. This seminar describes how formal design reviews can improve products by uncovering potential problems before they are discovered at a later stage of development or application, when the costs of correction are much higher.
