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.

Design and development of a modern steering system influences vehicle response to steering wheel input, driver effort, comfort, safety and fuel economy. In this interactive seminar participants will analyze the steering system from the road wheel to the steering wheel. Day one will begin with a deep dive into the anatomy and architecture of the lower steering system (wheel end, suspension geometry, linkages and steering gear), its effect on vehicle response and how forces and moments at the contact patch are converted to a torque at the pinion.

One of the most important safety critical components on cars, trucks, and aircraft is the pneumatic tire. Vehicle tires primarily control stopping distances on wet and dry roads or runways and strongly influence over-steer/under-steer behavior in handling maneuvers of cars and trucks. The inflated tire-wheel assembly also acts as a pressure vessel that releases a large amount of energy when catastrophically deflated. The tire can also serve as a fulcrum, both directly and indirectly, in contributing to vehicle rollover. This seminar covers these facets of tire safety phenomena.

The principal functions of the pneumatic tire are to generate driving, braking, and cornering forces while safely carrying the vehicle load and providing adequate levels of ride comfort. This seminar explains how tire forces and moments are generated under different operating and service conditions and, in turn, demonstrates how these forces and moments influence various vehicle responses such as braking, handling, ride, and high-speed performance. The content focuses on the fundamentals of tire behavior in automobiles, trucks, and farm tractors, but also includes experimental and empirical results, when necessary.

Designing a brake system requires the ability to balance a multitude of parameters against the required tradeoffs of system weight, system cost, and system performance. Understanding the basic fundamentals of how each brake component attribute contributes to the overall Force vs Deceleration behavior of the vehicle is critical to the design and release of a safe, legal and optimized system for today’s vehicles. Brake balance also is a contributing factor to other chassis control and safety systems, such as regenerative braking, ABS, and electronic brake distribution (EBD).

Air suspension systems been used specially in buses and trucks since the 1950s. Now a days these systems are used as a standard fitment and widely used to improve the ride comfort, handling stability and also serves as a medium for better cargo protection, with its feasibility of adjusting height and spring pressure according to the driving conditions and loading scenario as per driver's intent. These system are very well developed for Trucks and buses and have feasibility for adapting for wide range of configuration of suspension system and axle. At same time development of air suspension system for different category of vehicle other than this such as SUV or pickup trucks is not accelerated to extent expected. This work describe realistic approach for development of air suspension for pickup category of vehicle which takes into consideration integrated approach of on road testing and virtual MBD tools.

A 4 wheeled vehicle with X-split brake configuration, in hydraulic circuit failed condition will have a behavior of induced sway due to braking force variation in the front and rear. This paper proposes a novel approach & methodology to predict the effect of brake force distribution variation on the vehicle swaying behavior during circuit failed braking condition. This Study will quantify vehicle sway, caused due to imbalance in brake force distribution during a circuit failed braking event on X Split configuration vehicles. It briefly discusses on a case study about most feasible solution to reduce the vehicle sway by altering the brake force distribution in circuit failed condition alone, without having any change in brake force distribution during service brake condition. It also provides a positive correlation & confirmation through actual vehicle testing.
