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.

The SAE Chassis Brake Standards Committee plays a central role in the establishment of essential consensus-based industry standards. Each committee develops a full suite of standards that are related to quality, durability, environmental effects, and safety. The development or revision of SAE Standards need to incorporate the global perspective as a key success factor. This panel presentation and discussion will provide a direct insight into recent developments and activities from the SAE Chassis Brake Standards Committees. Additionally, the panel will include different regions and Standard Development Organizations including Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Latin America. The panel will provide an excellent platform to detect opportunities for integration and harmonization among SDOs from around the world.

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...

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. Engineering fundamentals...
