Once reserved for high-end luxury vehicles, electronic brake control systems are now required standard equipment on even the most inexpensive cars and trucks. Today, nearly every new vehicle benefits from the optimized braking, enhanced acceleration, or improved stability that these systems provide. This comprehensive seminar introduces participants to the system-level design considerations, vehicle interface requirements, and inevitable performance compromises that must be addressed when implementing these technologies. The seminar begins by defining the tire-road interface and analyzing fundamental vehicle dynamics. Following an in-depth study of system electronics, hydraulic hardware, and sensor requirements, the participants learn about the control strategies employed by anti-lock brakes (ABS), dynamic rear proportioning (DRP), traction control (TCS), and electronic stability control (ESC) with a heavy emphasis placed on the resulting vehicle dynamics. The seminar concludes with a study of unique applications, a look forward to advanced brake control system integration, and an overview of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 126.

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.

Commercial Vehicles require special technology for braking systems. Whether dealing with air, drum or disc brakes, the issue of high friction coefficiency, material selection and maximum wear life can be the difference in a whether an operator makes or loses money. This session is looking for presentations that can address critical technology advancements and issues of brakes, brake systems and related components for successful application in the CV industry.

SAE Chassis Brake Standards Committee plays the central role in the development of essential consensus-based standards development to meet the needs of manufacture, supplies, buyer, engineer, consumer and others. Each committee develops a full suite of standards that are related to quality, durability, environmental effect and safety. Your involvement with SAE Standards Committees provides industry, companies and individuals with extensive opportunities to participate, and influence the standard.

The session focuses on innovations with foundation brake and apply system components (calipers, rotors, drums, bearings, parking, and actuation). It also addresses integration at all levels (pad to caliper, caliper to corner, corner and actuation to vehicle). Examples of coverage include but are not limited to: component design, performance enhancements, system sizing/configuration, drag reduction, pedal feel, mass reduction, and thermal management by new designs/innovative materials.

This session focuses on brake systems for high performing sports cars and sedans as well as brake systems for power sports vehicles (snowmobiles, ATVs, etc.). It includes the requirements which are applied to this types of vehicles, how they differentiate from standard brake systems, and what are the specific development challenges on component and system level. It also deals with the question of how the focus on performance and safety can be combined with comfort and life time requirements

Hydraulic brake systems, one of the most important safety features on many road vehicles today, must meet manufacturer and customer requirements in addition to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. This course will analyze automotive braking from a system's perspective, emphasizing legal requirements as well as performance expectations such as pedal feel, stopping distance, fade and thermal management. Calculations necessary to predict brake balance and key system sizing variables that contribute to performance will be discussed. Major components of a brake system, including calipers, boosters, master cylinders, drum brakes, and park brakes will be presented in detail highlighting the many design variations. An overview of the chassis control components and operating principles will be presented with an emphasis on ABS, traction control and stability control. This course has been approved by the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR) for 18 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Increased public pressure to improve commercial truck safety and new stopping distance regulations have intensified the need to better understand the factors influencing heavy vehicle braking performance. To assist individuals and their organizations in preparing for these new truck braking standards, this seminar focuses attendees on understanding medium-duty hydraulic brake systems and heavy-duty air brake systems and how both systems' performance can be predicted, maintained and optimized. The function and application of the major brake system components will be explained and attendees will discover how brakes, tires and roadways interact as a system. Federal braking regulations for both hydraulic and air brake vehicles will also be covered. Attendees will receive the text, "Commercial Vehicle Braking Systems: Air Brakes, ABS and Beyond," written by Leonard C. Buckman. This course has been approved by the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR) for 18 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

While a variety of new engineering tools are becoming available to assist in creating optimal vehicle designs, subjective evaluation of vehicle behavior is still a vital tool to ensure desired braking, handling, and other dynamic response characteristics. In order to better prepare today's engineer for this task, this course offers twelve modules devoted to the key fundamental principles associated with longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics. Each focused classroom session is paired with an on-track exercise to immediately reinforce these concepts with a dedicated behind-the-wheel driving session, effectively illustrating these principles in the real world. Note that unlike most driving schools, this course is not designed to train performance drivers. Rather, the exercises on days one and two build the bridge between vehicle dynamics theory and practical application by providing a rich academic underpinning and then reinforcing it with highly focused and relevant driving experiences.
