The heat rejection rates and skin temperatures of a liquid cooled exhaust manifold on a Ford 2011 3.5L TiGTDI engine are determined experimentally using an external cooling circuit, which is capable of controlling the manifold coolant inlet temperature, outlet pressure, and flow rate. The manifold is equipped with a jacket that surrounds the collector region and is cooled with an aqueous solution of ethylene glycol-based antifreeze to reduce skin temperatures. Results were obtained by sweeping the manifold coolant flow rate from 2.0 to 0.2 gpm for a total of 12 engine operating points of increasing brake power up to 220 hp. The nominal inlet temperature and outlet pressure were 85 degC and 13 psig, respectively. Data were collected under steady conditions and time averaged. For the majority of operating conditions, the manifold heat rejection rate is shown to be relatively insensitive to changes in manifold coolant flow rate.

To satisfy the demand for assembly automation, flexible response to diversification of models and production volume changes, the concept of an “Innovative Automation Cell” was thought up as an innovative assembly production system, which can be used in place of conventional conveyor lines—a mode of production in use since the Industrial Revolution. This report describes the “Innovative Automation Cell” concept that can realize more than double production efficiency compared with manual assembly, and outlines of the core technologies. Development results and future issues are also discussed.

In this paper we discuss the benefit of using free format parameters to weld a specific advanced steel weld stack using free format Resistance Spot Welding parameters, and evaluate the benefit and capability of achieving this type of stack without the need for new, higher capacity equipment. New plant and plant renovation investment costs can add significant burden to the final cost of the Body In White (BIW). Advanced high strength steels (AHSS) can require higher clamp force guns and longer welding times, which may require additional capital investment for new welding guns and robots. Free Format parameters have the ability to modify the heat input rate and optimize nugget growth. The testing shows how the nugget initiation is modified with differing parameters. Also, these parameters impact the weld lobe and the fatigue life of the individual weld points.

Magnesium alloys have low weldability, thus self-piercing rivet (SPR) joint is one of options for joining them. This research investigates the fatigue performance of SPR for magnesium alloys including AZ31, AM30, and AM60. Lap-shear and coach peel specimens for these alloys are fabricated and tested for understanding fatigue performance of the joint. Structural stress – life (S-N) curves are developed with the test results. This approach is validated with simple structural specimens that include three or two joints in each specimen. It is also intensively studied to identify the proper representation of the joint in finite element models.

Pressure and temperature levels within a modern internal combustion engine cylinder have been pushing at the limits of traditional materials and design. These operative conditions are due to the stringent emission and fuel economy standards that are forcing automotive engineers to develop engines with much higher power density ratios. In this scenario, downsized, turbocharged engines are an important technology to meet the future demands on transport efficiency. It is well known that within downsized turbocharged gasoline engines, thermal management becomes a vital issue for durability and combustion stability. In order to contribute to the understanding of engine thermal management, a conjugate heat transfer analysis of a downsized gasoline piston engine has been performed. The intent was to study the design possibilities afforded by the use of the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) additive manufacturing process.

Failure mode and fatigue behavior of dissimilar laser welds in lap-shear specimens of low carbon steel (LC) and high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel sheets was investigated. Micrographs show that the failure modes of laser welds under quasi-static and cyclic loading conditions were quite different. Under quasi-static loading conditions, the upper sheet was separated at the base metal region. Under low-cycle loading conditions, the weld failure appeared to be initiated from the pre-existing crack tips and then failed by the ductile fracture through the upper right (LC) sheet. Under high-cycle loading conditions, the weld failure appeared to be initiated from the left pre-existing crack tip and then failed by the kinked fatigue crack propagating through the lower left sheets (HSLA). In general, the fatigue lives are longer for the specimens failed through the HSLA steel sheets than those failed through the LC steel sheets.

In this paper, mode I and mode II stress intensity factor solutions for gas metal arc welds in single lap-shear specimens are investigated by the analytical stress intensity factor solutions and by finite element analyses. Finite element analyses were carried out in order to obtain the computational stress intensity factor solutions for both realistic and idealized weld geometries. The computational results indicate that the stress intensity factor solutions for the realistic welds are lower than the analytical solutions for the idealized weld geometry. The computational results can be used for the estimation of fatigue lives in a fatigue crack growth model under mixed mode loading conditions for gas metal arc welds.

Vaporizing Foil Actuators (VFA) are based on the phenomenon of rapid vaporization of thin metallic foils and wires caused by passage of a capacitor bank-driven current, on the order of 100 kAmps. The burst of the conductor is accompanied with a high-pressure pulse which, as in the case of VFA, can be used for working metal at high strain rates. VFA have been applied toward a variety of impulse-based metal working operations such as collision welding, embossing, shearing, dynamic powder consolidation, shape calibration, and closed-die forming. While other applications are discussed briefly, this paper focuses on the use of VFA for collision welding of dissimilar metals, in particular, aluminum and steel. Aluminum alloy 6061 sheets of 1mm thickness were launched to velocities in excess of 800 m/s with input electrical energy of 8 kJ into 0.0762mm thick, dog-bone shaped aluminum foil actuators.

High joint strength of resistance spot welds is necessary for high rigidity and reliability of car body using ultra high strength steel (UHSS) sheets with tensile strength over 980MPa. We developed “pulsed current pattern” consisting the combination of short cool time and short-time high-current post-heating. This new process can achieve high cross tension strength (CTS) with sufficient tensile shear strength (TSS) in shorter welding time than conventional temper pattern. This paper presents the heating pattern and the effect on the joint strength by pulsed current pattern. Finite element analysis (FEA) for post-heating patterns was conducted using SORPAS. Temperature dependent material properties of 1180MPa grade steel were taken into account. FEA shows that the short-time high-current post-heating leads to rapid heating in nugget and heat affected zone (HAZ) compared to conventional temper pattern consisting long-time low-current post-heating.

In the automotive world, thermal expansion and gravity on assembly processes in manufacturing often account for unexpected variation. Issues related to the effects of these forces can cause not just assembly issues, but can also be the cause of non-conformance and warranty problems later in the product life cycle. Using 3d CAD models, engineers can now take advantage of advances in simulation to predict the effect of both thermal forces and gravity on their assembly and processes before production. By designing out these influences through a combination of tooling, process and tolerance changes, manufacturers can reduce the costs stemming from these common issues. This whitepaper delves into the process of simulating the effect of both these forces on automotive structures using real life examples and models based on customer experiences.

With the many model variations produced on the same production line because of increasing power train options, fuel efficiency targets, performance and customer demands we saw limitations with our existing suspension mount equipment. Layout options were limited due to guided shifts and transfers. Large supporting frame work took up valuable floor space. Model wheelbase sizes and suspension pallets were limited to the model requirements of the original equipment. We needed an adaptable system to install the engine/front suspension assemblies and the rear suspension assemblies. We found a solution by utilizing the capabilities of 6-axis industrial robots to make the core components of the equipment simpler; many of the functions of a traditional machine can now be accomplished by the robot. We were able to vary install position to optimize handling characteristics and accommodate the model-to-model varieties on the same production line.

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are now commonly used in automotive body structural applications. The high strength of this grade classification is attractive to help reduce mass in the automotive body through reduction in thickness. Strength also supports improvements in safety requirements so that mass increases are minimized. In some specific grades of AHSS, energy absorption is possible in addition to the high strength. This course will review the definition and properties of AHSS and cover several common applications in automotive body structures.
