SAE International Issues 13 New Technical Standards for Aerospace, Automotive and Commercial Vehicle Industries in Month of October

SAE International’s standards development teams issued 13 new technical documents and revised or reaffirmed another 80 in the month of October.

The newly issued documents in October covered a variety of technical subject areas, including:

Compounds Potentially Found in Aircraft Engine Bleed Air, Environmental Degradation of Composite Materials, Guidelines for the Use and Installation of Bonded Cable Harness Supports, Aluminum Alloys, Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Performance Requirements for V2V Safety Awareness, Characterization of On-Board Vehicular Hydrogen Sensors, and Sound Level Determination for Snowmobiles under Typical Trail Operating Conditions.

To date, SAE International has issued 90 new technical documents since January 1; 859 documents have been revised or reaffirmed.

Technical standards set expectations for safety, reliability, and quality while helping companies reduce their costs, increase productivity, and advance new technologies. SAE International’s standards repository totals nearly 35,000 documents – of which 11,000 are active and 24,000 historical dating back to the early 1900s.

SAE International has 700 standards development technical committees and 17,000 technical professional volunteers from countries around the world.  They serve every aspect of industry from vehicle design and integration to build, manufacture, operate, and maintain; and they address critical issues on everything from fuel to weather conditions, materials to electronics, engine power to energy mandates.
