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.

The next-generation of more electric aircraft (MEA) will rely heavily on multiple generators and energy storage to service a mix of constant power and resistive loads. This increase in system complexity, coupled with strict physical and performance requirements, necessitates the need for model-based system engineering (MBSE). As such, the validation of the component models is critical for the development process of MBSE. While it is not uncommon to develop/test component models with uncertainty studies combined with educated assumptions for the model parameters, the experimental hardware tests provide an important and effective means to validate the component models and quantify the variability of the model parameters. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Intelligent Power program has procured numerous 40 kVA, 400 Hz, brushless synchronous generators at various stages of their life cycle.

This paper proposes an integrated system’s approach towards design of some aero-engine subsystems - seals, bearing chamber, generator and power system. In a conventional design approach, the design of the overall system is typically broken-down into subsystems. Therefore, the focus is not on the mutual interaction between different components or subsystems, resulting in a lack of characterisation of the overall system performance at the design phase. A systems design approach adopts a much broader outlook, focusing on the overall optimization of the system performance. One of the principal contributors in the performance of an aircraft is the aero-engine. In particular, for a More Electric Aircraft, any abrupt changes to the electrical load from the power system can have an effect on the shaft dynamics, which in turn can affect the performance of air seals.

This paper presents an overview of a project called “Modelling and Simulation Tools for Systems Integration on Aircraft (MISSION)”. This is a collaborative project being developed under the European Union Clean Sky 2 Program, a public-private partnership bringing together aeronautics industrial leaders and public research organizations based in Europe. The provision of integrated modelling, simulation, and optimization tools to effectively support all stages of aircraft design remains a critical challenge in the aerospace industry. In particular the high level of system integration that is characteristic of new aircraft designs is dramatically increasing the complexity of both design and verification. Simultaneously, the multiphysics interactions between structural, electrical, thermal, and hydraulic components have become more significant as the systems become increasingly interconnected.

Aluminum metal matrix composite brake rotors with a selective ceramic function reinforcement gradient (FRG) have been developed for automotive applications. This paper will highlight the design, manufacturing, and testing of the rotors. Weight saving of an aluminum composite rotor in comparison to an industry standard cast iron rotor is 50-60%. With this material change comes design considerations to manage rotor temperature, rotor surface integrity, and friction. Manufacturing methods to meet these design constraints were needed to develop a viable high performance aluminum composite rotor. High pressure squeeze casting with soluble coring techniques were developed to incorporate the selective FRG MMC rotors. Dynamometer testing was performed, concentrating on brake friction and temperature to evaluate the macro and micro interfaces in the rotors.

Project Management for Automotive Engineers: A Field Guide was developed to help automotive engineers be better project managers as automotive projects involve suppliers dispersed across the globe, and can often span multiple years. Project scope change is common, and so too are the budget constraints and tight deadlines. This book is an excellent guide on how to manage continuous change. As project management in this particular industry is intrinsically linked to product development, the chapters focus on the project management aspects that are significant during the various stages of a product development cycle, including business case evaluation, process development cycle, test phases, production ramp up at the plant and at the Tier 1 supplier level, and how to work within a matrix-structured organization. The principles of value projects and how to revive failing projects are discussed.

Connected vehicles are increasingly seen as a target for cybersecurity attacks. A key differentiator for the automotive industry is the use of cyber-physical systems, where a successful cybersecurity attack can affect physical entities. Often involving embedded electronics and real time control, these systems require different solutions in addition to established IT security principles and reactive responses to threats. Cybersecurity needs to be designed and built into cyber-physical systems throughout the development lifecycle to provide defense in depth.

Additive manufacturing (AM) for space exploration has become a growing opportunity as long-range space missions evolve. In partnership with the National Space Grant Foundation and NASA, students from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee participated in the 2014-15 X-Hab Academic Innovation Challenge, with participants tasked with developing new AM solutions that would be recyclable with minimal loss in mechanical properties. The teams investigated materials, characterization, testing, modeling, and tool development, including the ability to employ reusable carbon-fiber tension ties. The tools developed show that it is possible to employ thermoplastic polymer materials fabricated using AM together with reusable and flexible high-performance carbon-fiber-based composite ties. The AM-printed part is completely recyclable. The carbon-fiber composite ties are repurposed into new structural configurations without loss in properties.

Program Managers have considered the subject of effectiveness quantification from three diverse points of view. The first viewpoint, in conjunction with the system effectiveness analyst, is to quantify everything and to consider everything quantifiable into a figure of merit. The result is a numerical decision aid that usually has some undesirable attributes such as oversimplification, non-sensitivity to critical parameters, hidden calculations, and difficulty in exercise of the model. This technique is characterized by mathematical models, computer programs, and attempted optimizations. The second viewpoint, in conjunction with the controller, is to consider the effectiveness as specified and concentrate on cost reduction, This has a danger of formulating all technical problems in terms of cost or economic considerations. This technique is characterized by closely controlled work packages.
