Weibull-Log Normal Analysis Workshop

2024-11-19
RMS (Reliability-Maintainability-Safety-Supportability) engineering is emerging as the newest discipline in product development due to new credible, accurate, quantitative methods. Weibull Analysis is foremost among these new tools. New and advanced Weibull techniques are a significant improvement over the original Weibull approach. This workshop, originally developed by Dr. Bob Abernethy, presents special methods developed for these data problems, such as Weibayes, with actual case studies in addition to the latest techniques in SuperSMITH® Weibull for risk forecasts with renewal and optimal component replacement.

Design of Experiments (DOE) for Engineers

2024-10-16
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 identifying proper design dimensions and tolerances, achieving robust designs, generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior, and determining ideal manufacturing settings. This course utilizes hands-on activities to help you learn the criteria for running a DOE, the requirements and pre-work necessary prior to DOE execution, and how to select the appropriate designed experiment type to run.

Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DFM/DFA)

2024-10-14
Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFM+A), pioneered by Boothroyd and Dewhurst, has been used by many companies around the world to develop creative product designs that use optimal manufacturing and assembly processes. Correctly applied, DFM+A analysis leads to significant reductions in production cost, without compromising product time-to-market goals, functionality, quality, serviceability, or other attributes. In this two-day course, you will not only learn the Boothroyd Dewhurst Method, you will actually apply it to your own product design!

System Engineering and Strategic Program Management for the Aviation Industry

2024-08-27
This course is offered in China only and presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese). The course directly addresses improved aircraft system design tools and processes, which, when implemented will significantly contribute to simpler, lower cost and even safer airplanes that meet customer quality demands. Adding value to the high-leveraged area of design (reducing design by involving manufacturing) — which is what this course does — can start to reverse the current trend (overrun and long delay) and help aircraft companies be more profitable.

Simulation of Hydrogen Combustion in Spark Ignition Engines Using a Modified Wiebe Model

2024-07-02
2024-01-3016
Due to its physical and chemical properties, hydrogen is an attractive fuel for internal combustion engines, providing grounds for studies on hydrogen engines. It is common practice to use a mathematical model for basic engine design and an essential part of this is the simulation of the combustion cycle, which is the subject of the work presented here. One of the most widely used models for describing combustion in gasoline and diesel engines is the Wiebe model. However, for cases of hydrogen combustion in DI engines, which are characterized by mixture stratification and in some cases significant incomplete combustion, practically no data can be found in the literature on the application of the Wiebe model. Based on Wiebe's formulas, a mathematical model of hydrogen combustion has been developed. The model allows making computations for both DI and PFI hydrogen engines. The parameters of the Wiebe model were assessed for three different engines in a total of 26 operating modes.

Current and Torque Harmonics Analysis of Triple Three-Phase Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Machines with Arbitrary Phase Shift Based on Model-in-the-Loop

2024-07-02
2024-01-3025
Multiple three-phase machines have become popular in recent due to their reliability, especially in the ship and airplane propulsions. These systems benefit greatly from the robustness and efficiency provided by such machines. However, a notable challenge presented by these machines is the growth of harmonics with an increase in the number of phases, affecting control precision and inducing torque oscillations. The phase shift angles between winding sets are one of the most important causes of harmonics in the stator currents and machine torque. Traditional approaches in the study of triple-three-phase or nine-phase machines mostly focus on specific phase shift, lacking a comprehensive analysis across a range of phase shifts. This paper discusses the current and torque harmonics of triple-three-phase permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSM) with different phase shifts. It aims to analyze and compare the impacts of different phase shifts on harmonic levels.

Enabling the security of global time in software-defined vehicles (SGTS, MACsec)

2024-07-02
2024-01-2978
The global time that is propagated and synchronized in the vehicle E/E architecture is used in safety-critical, security-critical, and time-critical applications (e.g., driver assistance functions, intrusion detection system, vehicle diagnostics, external device authentication during vehicle diagnostics, vehicle-to-grid and so on). The cybersecurity attacks targeting the global time result in false time, accuracy degradation, and denial of service as stated in IETF RFC 7384. These failures reduce the vehicle availability, robustness, and safety of the road user. IEEE 1588 lists four mechanisms (integrated security mechanism, external security mechanism, architectural solution, and monitoring & management) to secure the global time. AUTOSAR defines the architecture and detailed specifications for the integrated security mechanism "Secured Global Time Synchronization (SGTS)" to secure the global time on automotive networks (CAN, FlexRay, Ethernet).
