Plastic - any class of synthetically-produced organic compounds capable of being molded and hardened into a specific shape or form. This course is designed to offer a basic understanding of plastics and plastic processing. Using plastics can be simple, but there is much more behind producing high performance plastic parts. This seminar will walk you through the molding process, provide a comprehensive look at the variables in the manufacturing mix, and review characteristics of typical automotive plastics such as PP, PVC, ABS, and more.

Today's transportation industries are facing multi-disciplinary challenges. The product design and development process challenges often contradict each other, for example cost, weight, quality and performance. A central challenge is the need for cost and mass reduction to compete in the global market, while continuing to meet all new and existing requirements for quality and performance. Accelerated Concept to Product (ACP) Process is a performance-driven, holistic, product design development method intended to create a balance between structure and strength, synchronizing the individual facets of the product development process.

Dimensional Variation Analysis (DVA) is a decision-making methodology for tolerance analysis, and is employed to evaluate assembly variations and identify problems in manufacturing assembly processes at early stages of design. In this study, the impact of component tolerances on manufacturing and assembly process variations is presented on a case study. The case study includes the alignment analysis between crankshaft and input shaft for clutch systems. The impact of component tolerances on axial alignment measurements in regard to these applications is discussed. The study shows that when combined with effective tolerance combinations, Variation Simulation Analysis (VSA) facilitate operational visibility; thus improve quality, reduce manufacturing cost, and enable reduction of production release time. The case study presents the impact of component tolerances at two levels: 1. Pre-Design, 2. Optimized Design

The diesel exhaust aftertreatment using injection, such as urea – SCR and lean NOx trap systems, could effectively reduce the emission NOx level, and has been commonly used in various industrial applications. The performance of the injector is crucial for successfully utilizing this type of technology, and simulation tools are playing an important role in virtual design, which could evaluate performance and optimize the design. The virtual test methodology using CFD that is able to capture the fluid dynamics of injector internal nozzle flow has been developed to sever for this purpose to quantify the water or urea dosing rate of the test injector, and the computational results were validated with the test data measured in the Tenneco Injector Flow Lab. Later, the capability of the virtual test methodology was extended to quantify the spray angle of the test injector with test fluid of water or urea.

The use of composites in aircraft structure has been increasing and has reached a point with the 787 where 50% of the plane by weight is composites. Although the use of composites enables less part count and fewer fastener holes, there are still fastener holes, especially where composite structure is attached to metallic structure. This, along with the desire to keep the cost of manufacturing low means that ways of drilling this structure efficiently and effectively are required. This paper looks at the challenges one faces when drilling composite and composite-metal structure and then reviews the strategies developed over the years to effectively deal with those challenges.

As noise abatement becomes an increasingly important issue in the commercial aviation industry, aircraft companies have found it necessary to decrease the DB levels of their aircraft by using sound absorption technology (acoustic panels) on their engine nacelles. Acoustic panels are being used on the intake cowling, thrust reverse system, and other places on the engine nacelle where noise abatement technology could help lower the DB level of a commercial aircraft during takeoff and landing. Fabrication of acoustic panels is somewhat difficult as these parts require thousands of close tolerance spaced holes that allow sound to be absorbed by the sandwich panel. This presentation will discuss acoustic panel technology, an evaluation process that was conducted to select a manufacturing process for acoustic panels, noted scalability of the process across multiple configurations, and performance enhancements that have been undertaken over the course of multiple programs
