Gasket materials are utilized for various different types of high temperature testing to prevent leaking at bolted joints. In particular, the automotive test services field uses flanged-gasket bolted exhaust joints to provide a convenient method for installation & removal of exhaust components like catalytic converters for aging, performance testing, etc. Recent improvements in the catalyst aging methods require flanged-gasket joints that can withstand exhaust temperatures as high as 1200°C. Gasket materials previously used in these applications like the graphite based gasket materials have exhibited physical breakdowns, severe leakage, and general thermal failures under these extreme temperatures. In order to prevent these leaks, metal-reinforced gasket materials in a number of configurations were introduced to these extreme temperature environments to evaluate their robustness to these temperatures.

An approach using dynamic emulation of mechanical loads for testing and validation of the vehicles' Transmission will be presented in the paper. In order to reduce costs and shorten new vehicle development cycle time, vehicle simulation on the driveline test bench is an attractive alternative at the development phase to reduce the quantity of proto vehicles. This test method moves the test site from the road to the bench without the need for real chassis parts. Dynamic emulation of mechanical loads is a Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) procedure, which can be used as a supplement of the conventional simulations in testing of the operation of algorithms without the need for the prototypes. The combustion engine is replaced by a electric drive dynamometer, which replicates the torque and speed signature of an actual engine, The road load sistance of the vehicle on a real test road is accurately simulated on Load dynamometer by corrected road load forces.

This article is related to application of pre-chamber ignition device in heavy duty natural gas engine which, as previously shown by the authors, is capable of extending lean limit of operation and hence achieve better operating efficiency and reduce emissions. The effect of pre-chamber volume and nozzle diameter has been studied while operating with fuel rich combustion in the pre-chamber. The two parameters varied are the ratio of pre-chamber volume to engine’s clearance volume and the ratio of total area of connecting nozzle to the pre-chamber volume. Each parameter is varied in 3 steps hence forming a 3 by 3 test matrix. The experiments are performed on a single cylinder 2L engine fitted with a custom made pre-chamber which is capable of spark ignition, fuel injection and pressure measurement.

Honda developed the right and left independent toe-angle control system (first-generation P-AWS) in the Acura RLX in 2013 and announced it as the first in the world. As indicated in a previous paper, “Independent Left and Right Rear Toe Control System,” with this system Honda has realized an excellent balance between the fun of handling that is at the driver’s will (INOMAMA) and driving performance with a sense of stability. This first-generation P-AWS is designed to be optimal to the vehicle specifications (suspension axial force, steering gear ratio, etc.) of the Acura RLX. Honda is due to widely adapt P-AWS to other models from now on. Following this, we developed the next-generation P-AWS system (second-generation P-AWS) in order to reconcile system performance and low cost wherever possible, in order to be adaptable for all ACURA models.

 When evaluating the wear properties of slide bearings for car engines, it is common to conduct long-term physical tests using a bearing tester for screening according to the revolution speed of the shaft, supply oil temperature and bearing pressure in the actual use of engines. The loading waveform applied depends on the capability of the tester that is loaded, and it is often difficult to apply a loading waveform equivalent to that of actual engines. To design an engine that is more compact or lighter, it is necessary to reduce the dimensions of slide bearings and the distance between bearings. This requires loading tests on a newly-designed engine by applying a loading waveform equivalent to that of actual engines to slide bearings and their vicinity before conducting a firing test. We conducted an engine firing test by attaching thin-film sensors to the slide bearing part of the engine and measured the actual load distribution.

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.

Windshield wipers and washers are essential for safety driving of motor vehicles and expected to steadily provide a good field of vision under various weather and environment conditions. However, there is a concern that washers are likely to be affected by several factors such as fast air flow at high speed driving and high washer fluid viscosity at low temperature, which may result in unsatisfactory distribution of washer fluid onto windshields. As another example, particularly-high cleaning performance is required while vehicles are running on a winter road with mud and salt. Conversely, if these concerns are resolved, washers can contribute more to vehicle safety. Thus, we have developed a washer nozzle with a self-oscillating flow passage focusing on distributing appropriate amount of washer fluid.

Generation of discretization with prescribed element sizes are adapted to the geometry. From Rules of thumb, for a complicated geometry it is important to select the reasonable element order, shapes and size for accurate results. In order to that, this paper describes the influence of elemental algorithm of the catalytic converter mounting brackets. Brackets are main source of mounting of various systems mainly intake and exhaust in the engine .In exhaust hot end system, bracket designs play a vital role because it has to withstand heavy structural vibrations without isolation combined with thermal loads. Bracket design and stiffness determines the whole Catalytic converter system's rigidity. So, here discretization of converter brackets by linear and parabolic elements is studied with different elements types and compared.

This paper describes about recycled polyethylene terephthalate(R-PET) material for canopy strip part in automotive application. This recycled PET is a compounded material which is made out of used PET bottles and it is compounded with glass fibre to meet the product functional requirements. Canopy strip is a structural exterior part which requires better mechanical and thermal properties. The major function of this part is to act like a structural frame to hold the canopy sheet which is present at the both sides of the vehicle. Generally, PET bottles are use and throw product. PET is inert and takes an extremely long time to degrade so the empty bottles would also take an enormous amount of space in landfills which will directly affect rain water percolation. This compounded material is one of the sustainable solution for the environment where the waste bottles get converted to useful automotive parts.
