A leaf spring is subjected to vibration due to road profile irregularities, which leads to its fatigue failure. Also, if the natural frequency of the leaf spring matches the excitation frequency of the road profile, resonance occurs and the vibration is transmitted to the upper deck of the vehicle causing damage to fragile goods being transported. Hence, it is important to determine the modal frequencies of the leaf spring. This research work aims to highlight the experimental and computational techniques used to determine the modal frequencies of E-Glass/Epoxy mono composite leaf spring designed for the rear suspension of Tata Ace HD pickup truck. A prototype of E-Glass/Epoxy composite leaf is fabricated using conventional hand lay-up process and subjected to free and forced (harmonic) vibration test using DAQ (Data Acquisition) and DSA (Dynamic Signal Analyzer) system. The fundamental modal frequency obtained from real time test is validated using ANSYS Workbench 14.

Subjects who are well aware of what to judge commonly yield more consistent results in laboratory listening tests. This awareness may be raised by explicit instructions and training. However, too explicit instructions or use of only trained subjects may direct experiment results in an undesired way. An alternative is to give fairly open instructions to untrained subjects, but give the subjects a chance to get familiar with the product and context by, for example, riding a representative car under representative driving conditions before entering the laboratory. In this study, sound quality assessments of interior sounds of cars made by two groups were compared. In one group subjects were exposed to the same driving conditions that were later assessed in a laboratory listening test by taking them on a ride in one of the cars to be assessed, just before entering the laboratory. In the other group subjects made the laboratory assessments without prior car riding.

It is important for vehicle concept planning to estimate fuel economy and the influence of vehicle vibration in advance, on virtual engine specifications and a virtual vehicle frame. In this paper, I will show the power plant model with electrical starter, battery and alternator that can predict transient torque and combustion heat results. Also vibration result with the power plant model connected to vehicle inertia model will be shown. The power plant was 1.3L 4cyl NA. The discussed vehicle was small size and 1300kg. The power plant model was realized by energy based model using VHDL-AMS. Here, VHDL-AMS is modelling language stored in IEC international standard (IEC61691-6) and can realize multi physics on 1D simulation. The modeling language supports electrical, magnetic, thermal, mechanical, fluidic and compressive fluidic domain. The model was created in house by fully VHDL-AMS and validated on ANSYS SIMPLORER.

The intersection is happening. The intersection between the vehicle and the product world is finally happening. And one quick walk on this year’s CES at Las Vegas and NAIAS at Detroit will ascertain the right confluence of the same. Albeit the apparent differences in the lead-time of the development processes, there is a lot to be cross-pollinated between these two not-so-distinct ecosystems. Because fundamental core sits the end user – the human being. And prevalent school of thoughts in both the disciplines are rightfully acknowledging the human centricity needed to plan for and design “objects” and “services” as an seamless offering. Gone are the days to just push metal or cheap plastic artifacts to the consumer, as that definition of consumer itself is changing.

In this talk, we will explore some conceptual use cases of Augmented Reality in manufacturing and other industrial applications, and the technology gaps that currently exist preventing them from turning into a reality. We’ll elaborate on this theme by looking at how current marketing for this technology has led to over-inflated expectations for what exists today, and the effect that is having on its perception outside of the community. To continue we will look at work being done both in industry and academia to address these technology gaps and how we are moving closer to meeting those expectations, and finally we’ll uncover the huge benefits in manufacturing operations once we are successful.

Abstract Pulley thrust control, changes in the trajectory of the belt as it winds around the pulleys, and the amount of friction transmission were focused on in order to reduce transmission loss and increase the transmission efficiency of CVT. In the case of pulley thrust control, making use of the linear relationship between the rotary speed fluctuation transfer characteristic and the torque transmission capacity between the pulleys and the belt, it was possible to reduce the excess safety factor of the torque transmission volume. Due to pulley tilt, the trajectory of the belt displays deviations with the theoretical geometrical winding radius. The structure of the pulleys was modified in order to reduce this deviation and increase transmission efficiency. Optimization of the additives in the CVT fluid increased the coefficient of friction, decreasing pulley thrust and increasing transmission efficiency.

Abstract In response to increasing demands for measures to conserve the global environment and the introduction of more stringent CO2 emissions regulations around the world, the automotive industry is placing greater focus on reducing levels of CO2 through the development of fuel-efficient technologies. With the aim of improving fuel economy, a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) has been developed for 2.0-liter class vehicles. This new CVT features various technologies for improving fuel economy including a coaxial 2-discharge port oil pump system, wider ratio coverage, low-viscosity CVT fluid, and a flex start system. This CVT is also compatible with a stop and start (S&S) system that reduces fuel consumption by shutting off the engine while the vehicle is stopped. In addition, the development of the CVT improves driveability by setting both the driving force and engine speed independently.

Abstract A new CVT that is lighter in weight and more highly efficient than the previous CVT for use in compact vehicles has been developed and used in the 2014 model year FIT. The allowable torque capacity was expanded to that of the 1.8-L engine class, making this CVT usable in a greater number of vehicle models. The ratio coverage was also expanded and the transfer efficiency was increased to enhance fuel economy and drivability. Integration of hydraulic control system functional parts and reduction in the number of case component parts were carried out as structural modifications. Pulley side pressures were also reduced by the use of new CVT fluid so that the pulley could be made more compact and lighter in weight. Enhancements were made in CVT shift control, providing more acceleration considered from the driver's acceleration demand and more linearity between vehicle speed and engine speed than in previous models.

Abstract Toyota Boshoku developed two completely new components for the fuel cell vehicle (FCV), Mirai. These are the fuel cell (FC) Separator, and Stack manifold. The separators are made from stamped metal plates. The anode and cathode separators sandwich the MEA(Membrane Electrode Assembly) between them. It has flow paths for the hydrogen, air and FC coolant. The Anode Separator has hydrogen flow paths on one side, and cooling liquid flow paths on the other side. The pitch used in the flow paths is very fine and it improves both the uniformity of the gas flow and of the surface pressure on the MEA. Therefore, it has contributes to improve the electric power generation performance. The FC Stack manifold is a component that attaches to the end of one side of the FC stack. It is a component that integrates end plate and pipes. The end plate is a portion of the FC stack which holds the fastening load of stack and is made of cast aluminum casting alloy.

Abstract Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) has been developing fuel cell (FC) technology since 1992, and finally “MIRAI” was launched in 15th Dec. 2014. An important step was achieved with the release of the “FCHV-adv” in 2008. It established major improvements in efficiency, driving range, durability, and cold start capability. However, enhancing performance and further reductions in size and cost are required to facilitate the commercial widespread adoption of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs). TMC met these challenges by developing the world's first FC stack without a humidifying system. This was achieved by the development of an innovative cell flow field structure and membrane electrode assembly (MEA), enabling a compact and high-performance FC stack. Other cost reduction measures incorporated by the FC stack include reducing the amount of platinum in the catalyst by two-thirds and adopting a carbon nano-coating for the separator surface treatment.

Abstract The analysis and decision making on design, behavior and use of a prototype electric vehicle is the main focus has been pursued in this paper. It was modeled a prototype electric vehicle, called Gorila EV, as from the software tool Adams/Car. The dimensional parameters needed to create the model were obtained by measurements, calculations and approximations. Subsequently, it was determined a route to be travelled by the vehicle and proceeded to simulation of the vehicle on that route. Different modifications in the model were performed to compare their results with the original model through simulation in Adams/Car. These changes ranged from a simple change in the mass of the chassis until a change in the type of vehicle traction. After made the changes and simulations, it carried out the analysis of the most remarkable results. These results were studied subsystem by subsystem, beginning with the wheels, to suspensions and engine until vehicle chassis.

Abstract The paper discusses the benefits of a four stroke engine having one intake and one exhaust rotary valve. The rotary valve has a speed of rotation half the crankshaft and defines an open passage that may permit up to extremely sharp opening or closing and very large gas exchange areas. This design also permits central direct injection and ignition by spark or jets. The dual rotary valve design is applied to a naturally aspirated V-four engine of 1000cc displacement, gasoline, methane or hydrogen fuelled with central direct injection and spark ignition. The engine is modeled by using a 1D engine & gas dynamics simulation software package to assess the potentials of the solution. The novelty in the proposed dual rotary valve system is the combustion chamber of good shape and high compression ratio with central direct injector and spark plug or jet ignition, coupled to the large gas exchange areas of the rotary system.

Abstract Simulation based design optimization has become the common practice in automotive product development. Increasing computer models are developed to simulate various dynamic systems. Before applying these models for product development, model validation needs to be conducted to assess their validity. In model validation, for the purpose of obtaining results successfully, it is vital to select or develop appropriate metrics for specific applications. For dynamic systems, one of the key obstacles of model validation is that most of the responses are functional, such as time history curves. This calls for the development of a metric that can evaluate the differences in terms of phase shift, magnitude and shape, which requires information from both time and frequency domain. And by representing time histories in frequency domain, more intuitive information can be obtained, such as magnitude-frequency and phase-frequency characteristics.

Abstract This paper presents an overview of a four-year project focused on development of an integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) toolset for third generation advanced high-strength steels (3GAHSS). Following a brief look at ICME as an emerging discipline within the Materials Genome Initiative, technical tasks in the ICME project will be discussed. Specific aims of the individual tasks are multi-scale, microstructure-based material model development using state-of-the-art computational and experimental techniques, forming, toolset assembly, design optimization, integration and technical cost modeling. The integrated approach is initially illustrated using a 980MPa grade transformation induced plasticity (TRIP) steel, subject to a two-step quenching and partitioning (Q&P) heat treatment, as an example.
