This SAE Standard was developed to provide a method for indicating the direction of engine rotation and numbering of engine cylinders. The document is intended for use in designing new engines to eliminate the differences which presently exist in industry.
This document describes the CAD model data of legs and back hardware available from SAE for the HPM-1 three-dimensional H-point machine. The elements of the CAD model include the feet, lower and thighs as well as headroom probe and t-bar. Also included are datum points and lines, and calibration references. The intended purpose for this information is to provide a CAD reference for design and benchmarking as well as a calibration reference for the physical HPM-1 audits. The content and format of the data files that are available are also described. The actual CAD model files are included with this product and are provided in the following formats: CATIA v4 (without parametrics), CATIA v5 (without parametrics), IGES, and STEP.
This SAE Recommended Practice establishes a uniform procedure for the level road test of the brake systems of new light-duty trucks and new multipurpose passenger vehicles1 up to and including 2700 kg (6000 lb) GVW and all classes of new passenger cars.
This SAE Standard presents the standard sizes, important dimensions, specialized measurement techniques and tolerances for split type bushings. Both SI and inch sizes are shown; their dimensions are not exact equivalents. New designs shall use SI units. Unless specifically stated as +/-, all tolerances are total.
The CAESAR (Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource) research project was a landmark study that has brought us the most current data on civilian body measurements. This final report details the methodology of the study and the data gathering process. It gives detailed explanation on the survey instruments used, how the study was conducted and who was included to achieve a valid demographic sampling. The product provides a wealth of information on this large scale and statistically valid research project.
Dynamic simulation sled testing can represent various automotive collision conditions. Deceleration conditions during sled testing are readily reproducible and can be tuned to simulate collision events that occur during vehicle impacts with a fixed barrier or vehicle. Sled tests are conducted on automotive vehicle bodies or other structures to obtain valuable information. This information can be used to evaluate the dynamic performance of, but not limited to, vehicle restraint systems, vehicle seating systems and body closure systems. The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to establish sufficient standardization of dynamic simulation sled testing methods so that results of similar tests conducted at different facilities can be compared. The dynamic simulation sled test device may be one of several types, which include an acceleration sled (Hyge) or a deceleration sled where the deceleration pulse is controlled.
