Methodology of Interactive Design and Study Using Driving Simulator

Driving simulator is a key component of automotive interactive design, which can provide objective data to support both the effectiveness of design and user experience. On the other hand, driving simulator and the design of its experiments are major challenges, as improper experiment design will lead to consequences such as failure in identifying designing errors of the interactive design itself.

Aircraft Virtual Flight Testing and Certification in Off-nominal Multifactorial Situations

The behavior of a 'pilot-automaton-aircraft-operating environment' system (the System) in off-nominal situations with multiple risks can be unpredictably dangerous. Most multifactorial flight scenarios (corner cases) are considered as theoretically improbable. Such anomalies do nonetheless occur in operations and can lead to inconceivable accidents - 'black swan' events.

Global Mobility Database

1999-05-01
Thank you for your interest in the Global Mobility Database. This demo provides a representative sample of SAE¿s collection of mobility data. It demonstrates the search engine features and functions and includes a data set of more than 900 document summaries with bibliographic information, including abstracts. This subset contains examples of references for technical papers, standards, journal and magazine articles, specifications, regulations, and research reports, and represents all areas of mobility engineering for land, sea, air, and space. You will be asked to login to the SAE Website before accessing the demo. This will require you to register as a new user if you do not already have an SAE Website account.

Manager--Waste Management Programs Europe

1996-04-01
91A125
As one of the major materials suppliers to the automotive industry, Du Pont is playing an active role in helping that industry to provide solutions for effectively managing automotive waste. This is both good corporate environmentalism and sound business sense. Rightly, our partners in the industry-the car manufacturers and the components suppliers-expect us to work with them on tackling this issue. We are prepared to provide an active contribution. And, as I shall demonstrate, we are-all of us-making a vigorous effort in this area.

Simulors, An Innovative Tool for Molds Development

1996-04-01
91A117
Mold designers and foundrymen spend a lot of time in developing molds without knowing exactly the phenomena which take place inside. Simulor, which has been used in an industrial environment for two years, offers the solution to make foundrymen understand what happens during the filling of the mold and the solidification of the part. Based on navier-stokes and heat transfer equations, simulor provides speed distribution and metal front evolution in the cavity and thermal map in the mold and the part. Some examples with different metals (cast iron, aluminum alloy) cast with various processes (sand or die casting, low pressure or gravity casting) will be given. This new tool will given foundrymen the opportunity to test the mold before having it machined and will also allow reduction in development delays.

Particulate Reinforced Aluminum Matrix Composites Obtained By Indirect Squeeze-Casting

1996-04-01
91A115
Indirect squeeze casting technology is one of the most attractive fabrication techniques of near net shape components constituted by aluminum matrix composite (AMC) materials. AMCs reinforced with both continuous and discontinuous ceramic elements have been mainly produced by infiltration of porous preforms. Nevertheless, a further promising production route offered by this technique is given by the possibility to employ ingots of pre-reinforced aluminum alloys containing ceramic particles (silicon carbide or alumina); ingots are remelted and, under suitable operative conditions, high quality composite castings of simple and complex shape are produced by squeeze casting. The present paper describes the results of an extensive experimental work carried out by Alures-Centro Tecnico Porcessi on a pilot plant scale employing a vertical squeeze casting machine with a clamping force of 315 tons.

Manufacture of Automotive Components By Semi-Liquid Forming Process

1996-04-01
91A113
Semi-liquid forming process, applied to pressure die-casting, permits to obtain low cost components with high qualitative characteristics and adequate mechanical performances. The technology is based on the employment of material with globular microstructure (flow-cast alloys) obtained subjecting a metal alloy at the time of solidification to an elevated shear rate. Such microstructure permits the accomplishment of conventional forming processes at temperatures in solidification range. The particular fluid-dynamic properties of the semi-liquid slurry and the lower injection temperature allow to obtain casting with improved soundness, without need of impregnation, and to extend die life. The present work describes the Weber (Magneti Marelli) activity of the process industrialization and some applications for the manufacture of automotive components.
