It is a well-known fact that the number of women in science, engineering and business fields is growing, yet men continue to outnumber women, especially at the upper levels of these professions. Many women appear to encounter a series of challenges at early or midcareer stages that contribute to them leaving their careers prematurely due to feelings of isolation, an unsupportive work environment, extreme work schedules, and unclear rules about advancement and success.

Embedded hardware is everywhere you look today from your vehicle’s infotainment system to refrigerator to medical devices and everything else in-between. With so much exposure one would think that such devices are secure against attack; however, sadly for a large number of devices this is not the case. For proof, just look no further than your local news reports. They are full of reports on devices being hacked into. So, as engineers, how do we go about first identifying and mitigating (or capitalizing) the potential security vulnerabilities within these devices?
In this session, research and development of small engine technology, including two-stroke cycle, will be covered. Topics include combustion, scavenging, emissions, fuel systems, control, and NVH.

Electric and hybrid vehicles are becoming more visible on today's roadways and the automotive companies are working hard to make these vehicles as transparent as possible to enhance consumer acceptance. The battery system forms a key part of any of these vehicles and is probably the least understood. With practically no moving parts the battery systems show no visible or audible warning of any latent dangers. This seminar will introduce participants to the risks encountered in handling high voltage battery systems and their component parts.

Tough times require searching for things that we can change and making them better. But so often problems are solved with 'band-aids' and not root cause solutions. This approach is getting too expensive and at best only helps companies tread water. To combat these issues and adopt a fresh approach, teams can use the methods and tools of Root Cause Problem Solving to first view problems as opportunities for improvement, identify root causes and implement solutions to prevent recurrence. Benefits include improved quality and customer satisfaction, reduced operation costs, and greater employee knowledge of work processes.

Providing you have a basic understanding of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing fundamentals, this course teaches the significant revisions, additions, and deletions prescribed in the new ASME Y14.5-2009 Standard. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, the course offers an in-depth explanation of new features in the 2009 standard and compares them to the 1994 Standard. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems, and a set of comprehensive comparison charts that highlight itemized changes in the standard are included in the workshop price.
Topics of interest include historical perspectives of Powered Lift Aviation Systems relevant to Short, Extremely Short, and Vertical Takeoff (STOL, ESTOL, VTOL) fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. Histories of both “successful” and “unsuccessful” concepts that provided experience, lessons learned, and pushed the state-of-the-art in a way that significantly advanced the safety, efficiency, reliability and affordability of Powered Lift flight are appropriate for this session.

Wheel-loaders’ sub-systems like engine, driveline, hydraulics, cooling and mechanism are becoming increasingly more integrated and complex. This is mostly caused increased demand of energy efficiency, electronic controls and performance requirements from competitors and customers. In order to understand the complex sub-system interactions it requires engineers to use a common simulation platform which captures the multi-domain nature of a wheel-loader. Engineers from different sub-system groups can use such model to validate the full system requirements. Wheel-loader sub-system are multi-domain (controls, mechanism, hydraulics, thermal etc.) in nature. This paper describes the process of the development of a Multi-domain simulation of a wheel-loader. Working hydraulics, kinematics of working tool, driveline, engine and cooling system are modelled in LMS Amesim. Contacts between boom/bucket and bucket/ground are defined to constrain the movement of the bucket and boom.

The existing head cover is having external oil and blow by separation unit, which is not only costlier but also complex and leads to increase the overall height of engine which was difficult to integrate in new variants of vehicles. Existing head cover sealing system was also not foolproof and with slight variation in part dimensions, there were high chances of leakage. A new head cover has been designed with internal baffle type oil and blow by separation system to ensure efficient separation and proper packaging of the system in new varients.The new system has been finalized after 26 DOEs of different wire mesh sizes and different baffle plate size and positions. The final system has two bowl shaped separation unit with wire mesh with two cup type oil separation passages and one baffle plate for separating blow by. The system works on condensation and gravity method. The blow by is guided through a well-defined passage integrated in aluminum cylinder head cover itself.

Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 1:00 pm 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.

The cost of going from point A to point B is really all about how efficiently we convert stored energy into the motion desired to move us to the desired end point in a given amount of time and within the constraints of infrastructure. While it may be theoretically possible to use a rocket powered car to go from New York to Los Angeles, it is not practical to consider doing so given the available infrastructure. Several constraints will bound this discussion. First, the desired travel distance is approximately 4,000nm within 1 business day (~8 hours). Second, this distance may be either over land or water. Third, existing infrastructure is assumed without significant changes. And fourth, the individual cost of the trip shall not exceed 75% of the cost of a comparable trip today (that is, a 25% cost reduction is required). While mature (e.g.
