SAE International Releases Three New On-Demand Courses – Design, Internal Combustion Engines and Brake Controls are the Topics

SAE International announces three new on-demand professional development courses. The new offerings bring the total of on-demand courses available from SAE to 120.

The three new on-demand courses include:
 
  • Introduction to Design of Experiments (DOE) for Engineers (PD530932ON) – Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include, but are not limited to, identifying root causes to quality or production problems, identifying optimized design and process settings, achieving robust designs, and generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior.

    This introductory on-demand course provides an example scenario to give learners the opportunity to discover situations that may warrant a designed experiment. As the scenario is developed, the audience learns the DOE process steps and the definition of relevant terms. The topics covered include the benefits of conducting a DOE, DOE history, and the goals of different types of DOEs. Finally, examples of several success stories are provided to demonstrate the broad range of situations that have benefited from experimentation.

  • Basics of Internal Combustion Engines (PD730944) –This course covers the most relevant topics for maximum comprehension, from the chemistry of combustion to the kinematics of internal components of the modern internal combustion engine. Gain a practical, thorough approach to the basics of the most common designs of internal combustion engines as they apply to the gaseous cycles, thermodynamics, and heat transfer to the major components, including the design theories that embody these concepts.
 
This 10-hour course is comprised of 12 modules that include the instructor’s insights and industry experience working with internal combustion engine design and application. The modules cover various topics including two- and four-stroke cycles, principle operational differences of various fuels, timing and working relationships among internal components, limitations to current designs, and the evaluation of new designs.

  • Introduction to Brake Controls: ABS, TCS, and ESC (PD730501) – 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, nearly every new vehicle benefits from the optimized braking, enhanced acceleration, or improved stability that these systems provide. This comprehensive course introduces the system-level design considerations, vehicle interface requirements, and inevitable performance compromises that must be addressed when implementing these technologies.
 
The course begins by defining the tire-road interface and analyzing fundamental vehicle dynamics. Following an in-depth study of system electronics, hydraulic hardware, and sensor requirements, participants learn about the control strategies employed by anti-lock brakes (ABS), dynamic rear proportioning (DRP), traction control (TCS), and electronic stability control (ESC) with heavy emphasis placed on the resulting vehicle dynamics. The course concludes with a study of unique applications, a look forward to advanced brake control system integration, and an overview of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 126.
