Training / Education Classroom Seminars
This seminar is designed to provide gear novices with a general understanding of gear nomenclature, geometry, and arrangements. Starting with the basic definition of gears, conjugate motion and the "Laws of Gearing", you will gain a solid understanding of gearing and the fundamentals of rotary motion transfer through gear-trains. Gear classifications, tooth forms and geometry, and very high-level application considerations, manufacturing processes, and inspection techniques will be covered. Attendees will receive a copy of the book, Gear Design Simplified, by Franklin D. Jones & Henry H. Ryffel.

An efficient, robust, and quiet running drivetrain is as essential to customer satisfaction as styling and interior creature comforts. In this seminar, you will be exposed to various methods that can be used to accomplish this goal. Designed to help you visualize both individual components and the entire drivetrain system - without reference to complicated equations - this seminar focuses on the terms, functions, nomenclature, operating characteristics and effect on vehicle performance for each of the drivetrain components.

Starting with a look at the transmission's primary function -- to couple the engine to the driveline and provide torque ratios between the two -- this updated and expanded seminar covers the latest transmission systems designed to achieve the most efficient engine operation. Current designs, the components and sub-systems used, their functional modes, how they operate, and the inter-relationships will be discussed. A manual transmission display will be used to explain ratios and how they function within the driveline.

Managing uncertainty - no one knows what the future holds. Despite our best efforts to prepare for the unknown, the future often plays out in unexpected ways. The success of an organization often comes down to its ability to anticipate change; Ford's in house futurist will share tips on how to expect the unexpected.

The yaw moment control systems are adopted in order to enhance the handling and to prevent the vehicle unstable behaviour. They can be substantially divided in three sub-categories: systems based on differential braking, systems based on the controlled torque distribution, and steer by wire systems. With reference to the torque distribution systems, they are substantially characterized by limited slip differentials able to generate an internal locking torque that allows to differentiate the output torque and to generate a corrective yaw moment on the vehicle. This paper deals with a new automotive controllable differential for the control of the yaw moment of the vehicle. Software simulations are presented in order to evaluate the benefits reachable by means of the proposed device. The device is based on the employment of magnetorheological fluid, whose magnetization allows to generate the locking torque and, consequently, the improving yaw moment.

A vehicle gearbox serves for torque and speed conversion with help of rotating elements. Therefor the gearbox experiences periodic excitation forces with a fundamental frequency following the rotation frequency. These excitation forces give rise to corresponding periodic response signals, i.e. signals having content at the fundamental (rotational) frequency and its harmonics. Order analysis is an analysis technique which is used to extract these harmonic orders from the response signals. This article intends to use the order tracking analysis for gearbox fault diagnosis under variable speed conditions to compare between healthy and faulty cases by using order extraction. Finally, determine maximum Root Mean Square (RMS) as severity index.

This seminar is presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese). Developing environmentally cleaner and more fuel efficient vehicles is transforming the automotive industry worldwide, particularly in China with its emphasis on new energy vehicles. There are many engineering challenges that must be addressed in designing effective new energy vehicles. The technical knowledge required to understand and make the right decisions with regard to powertrain architecture, powertrain controls, and energy management strategies is critical to success in this market.

Hybrid powertrains have been on the market for more than a decade and have become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. More than a million hybrids are sold globally per year, primarily in Japan and the US. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles may require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Hybrids are also starting to make inroads into markets in Europe, and have recently been introduced to Chinese and Indian markets, among others. Basic information on hybrids is scattered among information sources, and is often difficult to synthesize.
