Standard Rainflow File Format

2002-04-30
HISTORICAL
J2623_200204
This SAE Standard provides a definition of a rainflow file format. This type of simple text file would contain all relevant information about the rainflow cycle content of a time history. Included information are Comments, Signal Range, Signal Mean, Number of Cycles, Signal Maximum, Signal Minimum. Rainflow cycle counting has become the most accepted procedure for identifying material fatigue relevant cycles in complex variable amplitude load time histories. The cycle counting methods account for the effects of material plasticity and material memory of prior deformation, and the resulting compressed history information is used by durability analysts to estimate the effects of a given service or test history.

The First Century of the Detroit Auto Show

2000-01-15
This book looks at the first century of the Detroit Auto Show, the largest auto show in the world for many years. From the first show at the Detroit Light Guard Armory in 1899 to the January 1999 show at Cobo Hall, this fascinating book details the show's evolution over 100 years, and how it became the industry's most prominent event. The First Century of the Detroit Auto Show introduces pioneers such as William Metzger, who was instrumental in organizing the first show and played a prominent role in many shows of the early 1900s. Each year's show is covered in a chapter which includes information on the major players of the show, products featured, size, exhibitors, decor, opening ceremonies, admission fares, and entertainment. The book features over 100 historical and nostalgic photos to bring the reader in touch with the culture of the automotive industry and society at the time.

Brake-Stroke Indicator Design Guideline for Cam or Disc Air-Brake Actuators

2012-06-19
HISTORICAL
J1953_201206
This SAE Recommended Practice shall cover mechanical- readjust stroke indicators for actuators with visible exposed pushrods and electrical-readjust stroke indicators for all air-brake actuators. This device shall indicate the foundation brake(s) may require adjustment or service when inspected per vehicle manufacturer's procedures. A measurement shall be made to determine actual stroke measurement for any system not factory calibrated. Stroke indication accuracy of an air-brake actuator can be assured only when all of its components are supplied by the original brake actuator manufacturer.

Survey of Known Protocols

1993-04-01
HISTORICAL
J2056/2_199304
This SAE Information Report is a summary comparison of existing protocols found in manufacturing, automotive, aviation, military, and computer applications which provide background or may be applicable for Class C application. The intent of this report is to present a summary of each protocol, not an evaluation. This is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all applicable protocols. The form for evaluation of a protocol exists in this paper and new protocols can be submitted on this form to the committee for consideration in future revisions of this report. This report contains a table which provides a side-by-side comparison of each protocol considered. The subsequent section provides a more detailed examination of the protocol attributes. Many of the protocols do not specify a method for one or more of the criteria. In these circumstances 'under defined' or 'not specified' will appear under the heading.

Cumulative Damage Analysis for Hydraulic Hose Assemblies

2014-06-04
CURRENT
J1927_201406
This SAE Information Report is intended to provide the hydraulic system analyst with a procedure which will assist in the selection and use of high-pressure wire reinforced hydraulic hose assemblies. Many construction, agricultural, industrial, or commercial equipment systems utilize hydraulic hose assemblies that are subjected to irregular cyclic pressure variations (cannot be approximated by a constant amplitude pressure cycle). This document relates damage done by pressure cycles with the pressure-life performance curve for the hose assembly being evaluated, using a linear damage rule to predict fatigue life similar to that used for predicting metal fatigue life. More detailed information on the subject may be found in SAE Paper No. 880713. The accuracy of cumulative damage calculations is directly related to proper measurement of the service pressure history and pressure-life performance for the hose assembly being evaluated.
