CURRENT
J2691_201804
This SAE standard establishes the minimum construction and performance requirements for a 15 Pole Connector Between Towing Vehicles and Trailers, for trucks, trailers, and dollies in conjunction with SAE J2742. The connector accommodates both power and ISO 11992-1 signal circuits along with dual ground wires to accommodate grounding requirements within the constraints of the SAE J2691 terminal capacity.

Dynamic Cleat Test with Perpendicular and Inclined Cleats

2013-09-05
CURRENT
J2730_201309
This SAE Recommended Practice describes a test method for measuring the forces and moments generated at a high frequency response spindle when a rolling tire impacts a cleat. The cleat is configured either with its crest perpendicular, 90°, to the path of the tire or optionally with its crest inclined at an angle to the path of the tire. The carriage to which the spindle is attached is rigidly constrained in position during each test condition so as to provide a good approximation to fixed loaded radius operation. The method discussed in this document provides impact force and moment time histories essentially free from variations due to tire non-uniformities. The method applies to any size tire so long as the equipment is properly scaled to conduct the measurements for the intended test tire. The data are suitable for use in determining parameters for road load models and for comparative evaluations of the measured properties in research and development.

Sound Level for Passenger Cars and Light Trucks

1976-11-01
HISTORICAL
J986B_197611
This SAE Standard establishes the test procedure, environment, and instrumentation for determining the exterior sound level for passenger cars, multipurpose vehicles, and light trucks having a gross vehicle mass rating of 4540 kg or less. The test procedure is characterized by having fixed initial conditions, i.e., an as-specified initial vehicle speed and gear selection at a fixed start point on the test site. Full-throttle acceleration and closed-throttle deceleration of the vehicle are included in this procedure. Sound levels determined in accordance with this document are dependent on the performance capability of the test vehicle, as influenced by power-to-mass ratio and overall powertrain gear ratio.

Dynamic Simulation Sled Testing

2013-10-29
CURRENT
J2481_201310
Dynamic simulation sled testing can represent various automotive collision conditions. Acceleration 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.

CURRENT
J398_201211
This recommended practice provides a method for establishing the rated or advertised fuel capacity for a vehicle utilizing liquid fuel at atmospheric pressure. It applies to passenger cars, multi-purpose passenger vehicles and light duty trucks (10 000 lb (4536 kg) maximum GVW), (Ref. SAE J1100). It also includes a standardized procedure for creating a full tank when another test requires that condition as a starting point. It is intended as a guide toward standard practice and is subject to change to keep pace with experience and technical advances.

Clearance Envelopes for Six-Bolt, Eight-Bolt, and Rear Truck Transmission Mounted Power Takeoffs

2000-09-07
HISTORICAL
J772_200009
The purpose of this document is to provide dimensions of clearance envelopes for various types of six-bolt regular-duty, eight-bolt heavy-duty, and side- and rear-mounted truck transmission power takeoffs. These envelopes are applicable to the clearance required immediately adjacent to the power takeoff openings on truck transmissions. Clearance envelopes are provided for the purpose of documenting current practice. It must be recognized that many current designs do not provide these clearances in all orientations and variations. New transmission and power takeoff designs should attempt to adhere to these envelopes where practical, but they should not be construed to be design restrictive; ultimately, the actual power takeoff clearance must be established for each application. In order to provide realistic envelope sizes, there are seven basic ÒtypesÓ of side-mounted P.T.O. envelopes and rear-mounted envelopes as shown in Table 1.
