Hybrid powertrains have been on the market for more than a decade and have become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. More than a million hybrids are sold globally per year, primarily in Japan and the US. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles may require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Hybrids are also starting to make inroads into markets in Europe, and have recently been introduced to Chinese and Indian markets, among others. Basic information on hybrids is scattered among information...

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. An overnight assignment...

Through the years there has been a significant and increasing volume of fraudulent and counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain. Left undetected, these parts can pose significant performance, reliability, and safety risks. In response to these threats, the SAE AS6081 Counterfeit Electronic Parts Avoidance – Distributors standard was developed to provide uniform requirements, practices, and methods to mitigate the risk of electronics distributors purchasing and supplying these counterfeit electronic parts throughout the aerospace supply chain. This two-day seminar will begin...

Advanced materials are essential for boosting the fuel economy of modern automobiles while maintaining safety and performance. The next generation of lightweight materials-including steels, aluminum, magnesium and carbon fiber composites-could reduce vehicle weight substantially while maintaining safety and performance. Policy implications will also be discussed for recycling and light-weighting versus safety. Advanced materials also increase efficiency by enabling engine components to withstand the high pressures and temperatures of high-efficiency combustion regimes. Replacing the expensive materials used in electric motors and other drivetrain components with advanced materials is an important way to reduce the cost of electric-drive vehicles. Materials technologies figure prominently in increasing efficiency and reducing emissions across light- and heavy-duty vehicles and for many propulsion technologies.

Regulatory requirements, including the RFS, Tier 3 emissions standards, California’s LCFS program and CAFE standards are creating incentives to adjust gasoline formulations to enable cleaner, more efficient, and less carbon-intensive vehicles for the future. At the same time, fuel producers must contend with changing feedstocks and attempt to balance product slates in a global marketplace. The emergence of new sources, including natural gas and light, tight oil and increased use of biofuels have also impacted fuel production and the related petrochemical sector. It’s a changing world; will gasoline formulations change in the years ahead? This session will explore issues surrounding the future of gasoline formulation as fuel producers respond to global fuel utilization pressures, changing feedstock properties, regulatory guidance, and consumer expectations.
