This web seminar will provide an introduction to the characteristics of sound waves, human perception of sound, sound and vibration measurements, measurement facilities, and various noise sources and noise control principles. It will include an overview of sound pressure, power, intensity, decibels, and frequencies. Practical examples will be used to familiarize participants with the acoustic fundamentals for solving noise and vibration problems and the associated solution principles.
Providing you have an understanding of tolerance stacks, this course teaches an introduction to statistical tolerance stacks, a crucial skill in today"s competitive workplace. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, the course includes a brief overview of several terms used in statistical stacks. It explains four methods for applying statistics to tolerance stacks and covers precautions about when and how to use statistics in stacks. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with stacks that allow the student to practice applying statistical methods.
Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 12:30 pm In today"s highly competitive and liability minded environment, Design Reviews (DR) are a must for all major mobility industries such as Automotive, DOD, Aerospace, Agriculture, Recreation, Marine and Rail. While Design Reviews are becoming increasingly important in product liability litigation, they also serve as an effective way to transfer organizational best practices for specific concerns and issues.
This seminar is suggested for product or process experts who have a need to utilize more detailed information concerning Design of Experiments analysis. It primarily addresses the subject of ANOVA, analysis of variance, which is a statistically based, objective decision-making tool. This is an advanced seminar that covers the fundamentals required to analyze orthogonal experiments, interpret, and recommend further action based on the analysis. Emphasis is placed on the analysis phase of the DOE process.
The session is associated with engine and vehicle simulation tasks and their related measurements. Simulation and measurement methodology as well as the simulation and measurement application on development tasks will find a place within the session
All aspects of small engine related noise and vibration are covered in this session including: generation, experimental techniques, measurement, numerical analysis, NVH materials, source identification, NVH quality and novel solutions.
The session includes research papers focused on CHP applications and technologies up to an electrical output of 50 kW (combustion technologies like spark ignition and diesel engines, Stirling power units, micro turbines, ORC, fuel cells, etc.) fueled by natural gas, light oil gas, biogas, rape oil, RME and other alternative fuels.
This session contains manuscripts focused on two-stroke engines. Topics such as emissions, performance, and efficiency will be explored. Advanced combustion control, direct fuel injection, simulation models and experimental results will be presented.
Functional safety, defined as absence of unacceptable risk due to the hazards caused by mal-function in the systems is becoming a key factor in the development of vehicles and equipment and can pose a safety hazard. This increase in functional safety issues has raised the need for the automotive industry to develop its own functional safety standard. This session will highlight the approach of ISO 26262 may influence the safety level of related functions specific to small engine applications.
This session focuses on hardware not associated with the engine and drivetrain that supports the purpose of the vehicle such as suspensions, lighting, dampers, marine hulls, steering, vehicle frame, and heating and cooling systems.
