Keywords-Coolant,Ventilation Research and/or Engineering Questions/Objective: Number of Occupants is the major parameter when we consider Air Conditioning System. The number of person who stays in the room may vary in the same way the person who travels in the automobile also vary throughout the distance. This is more prevalent in transportation system like bus, train and where lot of people will travel together and where dropping station in the vehicle is too frequent.In this type,operating A.C has to be varied Methodology: . Instead the number count in the vehicle will be monitored from time to time. Based on the number of count, the cabin has to be cooled or heated and accordingly corresponding power has to be drawn by the compressor from the engine. This human count can be detected based on the number of CO2 sensor located in the cabin. the amount of fresh air that should be added to a cabin can be controlled by a carbon dioxide level transmitter.

In the present work, it is aimed at developing an integrated approach for combustor modeling involving rapid prototyping and water tunnel testing to assess the cold flow numerical simulations; the physical model will be subjected to cold flow visualization and parametric studies and CFD analysis to demonstrate its capability for undergoing rigorous cold flow testing. A straight through annular combustors is chosen for the present study because of it has low pressure drop, less weight and used widely in modern day aviation engines. Numerical Analysis has been performed using ANSYS-FLUENT. Three dimensional RANS equations are solved using k-ɛ model for the Reynolds numbers ranging from 0.64 x 105-1.5 x 105 based on the annulus diameter. Post processing the results is done in terms of jet penetration, formation of recirculation zone, effective mixing, flow split and pressure drop for different cases.

The fatigue testing machine mostly used for industrial or laboratory applications are limited to performing single fatigue tests with high leading cost. In the present paper the experimental setup of the traditional fatigue testing machine is integrated with torsional test, to experimentally study the effect of fluctuating stresses on the material under service. In contradiction to earlier machines, the machine herein developed provides uniform bending and twisting moment distribution along the length of the test specimen. The machine performs fatigue test and torsional test, which provides the extreme force needed to understand the properties and behavior of materials. The machine consists of an electric motor to provide the required torque and two circular arms with adjustable chucks to fit test samples of various sizes. The machine provides computerized data for failed samples with data pertaining to each sample.

Lithium ion batteries are the most promising candidates for electric and hybrid electric vehicles, owe to their ability to store higher electrical energy. As a matter of fact, in automotive applications, these batteries undergo frequent and fast charge and discharge processes, which are associated to internal heat generation, which in turns causes temperature increase. Thermal management is therefore crucial to keep temperature in an appropriate level for safe operation and battery wear prevention. In a recent work authors have already demonstrated the capabilities of a coupled lattice Boltzmann-Finite Volume Method to deal with thermal transient of a three dimensional air-cooled Li-ion battery at different discharging rates and Reynolds numbers. Here, in order to improve discharge thermal capabilities and reduce temperature levels of the battery itself, a layer of porous medium is placed in contact with the battery so to replace a continuum solid aluminum layer.

High Voltage Vehicle Safety Systems and PPE

2019-09-26
High voltage vehicle safety is a primary concern for every technician or engineer involved in developing, diagnosing or repairing hybrid or electric vehicles. Engineers/technicians working in this field should complete safety training before they interface with hybrid, plug-in or electric vehicles.

This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of die forgings, hand forgings, rolled rings, and forging stock. These products have been used typically for aircraft structural members requiring moderately high strength. Certain design and processing procedures may cause these forgings and rolled rings to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
