Professional Development Opportunities at Brake 2018

Introduction to Brake Control Systems: ABS, TCS, and ESC
Instructor: James Walker Jr.
October 11-12, 2018 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.)
Once reserved for high-end luxury vehicles, electronic brake control systems are now required standard equipment on even the most inexpensive cars and trucks. Today, every new vehicle benefits from the optimized braking, enhanced acceleration, and improved stability that these systems provide. This comprehensive seminar introduces participants to the system-level design considerations, vehicle interface requirements, and inevitable performance compromises that must be addressed when implementing these technologies.
The seminar begins by defining the tire-road interface and analyzing fundamental vehicle dynamics.

ADAS Application: Automatic Emergency Braking
Instructor: Eldon Leaphart
October 17, 2018 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m)
Active Safety, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are now being introduced to the marketplace as they serve as key enablers for anticipated autonomous driving systems. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is one ADAS application which is either in the marketplace presently or under development as nearly all automakers have pledged to offer this technology by the year 2022. This one-day course is designed to provide an overview of the typical ADAS AEB system from multiple perspectives. A technical overview of the development cycle processes specific to AEB, including system level requirements and design architecture will be presented as well as design considerations for AEB from a functional safety (ISO‐26262) perspective. A general overview of algorithm concepts for the various AEB subsystems will be demonstrated followed by a review of AEB system test and validation methods. Finally, discussion is facilitated toward understanding customer perception and acceptance of AEB at present. The participant should obtain a fundamental understanding of design principles and functional composition for a typical AEB system.

Brake Friction Materials: Testing, Quality and Selection
Instructor: Mohammad Vakili
October 18, 2018 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.)
The choice of brake friction materials varies per application, but each must have the appropriate coefficient of friction and be able to disperse large amounts of heat without adversely effecting braking performance. This seminar will provide an introduction to brake lining raw materials and formulation, manufacturing, quality control and testing. The course covers the critical elements that must be reviewed before arriving at a lining selection decision. Different classes of friction material and their use will be defined.

 

Introduction to Brake Noise, Vibration, and Harshness
Instructor: Eric Denys
October 18, 2018 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.)
Brake Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) is recognized as one of the major problems currently faced by the automotive manufacturers and their suppliers, with customers warranty claims of more than $100 million per year for each manufacturer. With increasing consumer braking performance expectations, automotive OEM"s and suppliers need the ability to predict potential problems and identify solutions during the design phase before millions of dollars have been spent in design, prototyping, and manufacturing tooling. This seminar provides an introduction to brake NVH, including a concise summary of the various brake NVH problems, current lab and vehicle measurement techniques and SAE global standards which are utilized to characterize the noise correctly in order to get the best option/solutions quickly. The information provided will serve as an excellent foundation for understanding and characterizing brake NVH issues and is an excellent primer to the SAE Seminar ID# C0831 - Brake Noise Problem Resolution, also taught by instructor Eric Denys.

Brake Noise Problem Resolution
Instructor: Eric Denys
October 19, 2018 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.)
Brake noise is one of the highest ranked complaints of car owners. Grunts, groans, squeaks, and squeals are common descriptions of the annoying problem which brake engineers spend many hours trying to resolve. Consumer expectations and the high cost of warranty repairs are pushing the optimization of brake NVH performance. This course will provide you with an overview of the various damping mechanisms and tools for analyzing and reducing brake noise. A significant component of this course is the inclusion of case studies which will demonstrate how brake noise squeal issues have been successfully resolved.
