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. Students will learn the mechanics of side crashes and how vehicle structures, restraint systems, and interiors affect occupant safety. Students will also be exposed to system, subsystem and component level CAE and testing tools used in the simulation of side impacts. Accident crash statistics, biomechanics, government regulations and public domain frontal safety tests will also be covered.

The choice of brake friction materials varies per application, but each must have the appropriate coefficient of friction and be able to disperse large amounts of heat without adversely effecting braking performance. This seminar will provide an introduction to brake lining raw materials and formulation, manufacturing, quality control and testing. The course covers the critical elements that must be reviewed before arriving at a lining selection decision. Different classes of friction material and their use will be defined.

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. This will include the product specifications during the infancy stage of development on the government side and continue through the various technical development stages required for the full production launch of various military vehicle platforms, including wheeled and tracked vehicles. This course will give those who are entering the military tactical vehicle market, or those who want to effectively move commercial products into the DoD market the foundation to do so.

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. Emphasized in the course are the practical and theoretical aspects of off-highway trucks as it relates to various components and subsystems, including tires, steering system, and suspensions. The course will also highlight how various components and subsystems dynamically interact with each other, and how their collective interaction is manifested in the overall vehicle dynamics. This seminar presents the specialized aspects of off-highway truck dynamics and assumes participants already have an understanding of heavy truck dynamics, either as presented through the SAE Fundamentals of Heavy Truck Dynamics seminar or experience gained through on-the-job training.

Designing more efficient and robust emission control components and exhaust systems results in more efficient performance, reduced backpressure and fuel penalty, and higher conversion efficiency. This course will help you to understand the motion of exhaust flow in both gasoline and diesel emission control components including flow-through and wall-flow devices such as catalytic converters, NOx adsorbers, diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters as well as flow through the overall exhaust system. Discussions will also cover: flow recirculation in inlet cones, flow maldistribution and its effect on conversion efficiency in flow throughs, non-uniform particulate deposit in diesel filters, and roots of non-uniformity in flow distribution due to exhaust system design such as bends.

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem-solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include identifying proper design dimensions and tolerances, achieving robust designs, generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior, and determining ideal manufacturing settings. This seminar utilizes hands-on activities to help you learn the criteria for running a DOE, the requirements and pre-work necessary prior to DOE execution, and how to select the appropriate designed experiment type to run. You will experience setting up, running, and analyzing the results of simple-to-intermediate complexity, Full Factorial, Partial Factorial, and Response Surface experiments utilizing manual methods as well as a hands-on computer tool that facilitates experimental design and data analysis. You will also receive an overview of Robust DOE, including the Taguchi DOE Method.

As diesel emissions regulations have become more and more stringent, diesel particulate filters (DPF) have become possibly the most important and complex diesel aftertreatment device. This seminar covers many DPF-related topics using fundamentals from various branches of applied sciences such as porous media, filtration and materials sciences and will provide the student with both a theoretical as well as an applications-oriented approach to enhance the design and reliability of aftertreatment platforms. Structure, geometry, composition, performance, applications and optimizations of DPFs are some of the main topics covered in this advanced level seminar. Computer simulation techniques for analysis and optimization of DPF performance are also demonstrated.

Although many have an idea of what the term “driver distraction” means, there is no common definition within the research community. Additionally, there are many studies that have investigated the topic, but with varying and sometimes conflicting results. What should be made of these discrepancies? This four-hour webinar will provide an overview of driver distraction (predominantly electronic devices): the problem; how to define it; the current state of research and how to critically evaluate that research to make informed decisions; and the effectiveness of state laws and fleet policies to reduce it. The conclusion of the course will summarize strategies, techniques, and technologies that have been shown to be effective in reducing distracted driving from electronic devices.

Engines can and do experience failures in the field in a variety of equipment, vehicles, and applications. On occasion, a single vehicle type or equipment family will even experience multiple engine failures leading to the inevitable need to determine what the most likely cause of one or all of those failures was. This comprehensive seminar introduces participants to the methods and techniques used to determine the most likely cause of an individual engine or group of engine failures in the field. The seminar begins with a review of engine design architecture and operating cycles, integration of the engine into the vehicle itself, and finally customer duty cycles and operating environments. Special emphasis is placed on the number and type of subsystems that not only exist within the engine (diesel and gasoline) but are used to integrate the engine into the overall vehicle package. Following this review, participants learn about failure types, investigation techniques, inspection methods, and how to analyze the available evidence using their own knowledge of engine and vehicle operating characteristics to determine the most likely cause of an engine(s) failure.
