    • The history and future of two-stroke engines
      While supporters of two-stroke engines emphasize their advantages, naysayers have for years been predicting the death of the little engine that could.
    • Active suspension systems
      Engineers from Birrana have designed a load-sensing system for mining trucks and haulers that reduces torsional, vibration, and shock loads on a vehicle's structure.
    • CFD simulations inside hydraulic valves
      Engineers from HUSCO studied the forces induced by oil flow on hydraulic valve actuators with the aim of minimizing their effects.
    • Electronic control for transmissions
      A third-generation transmission electronic control system developed by Allison primarily for mobile equipment applications will be phased into all of its off-highway transmissions.
