Corrosion Engineering and Prevention

The transportation industry, including motor vehicles, aircraft, rail, marine, commercial, off-road and defense vehicles, as well as infrastructures, energy sectors, raw materials, manufacturing, health and food industries all experience significant issues with corrosion which results in billions of dollars of loss each year. Corrosion education and prevention is essential to improve and increase the service life of parts and components which may have a significant impact on the economy of various industries and nations.

Fundamentals of Threaded Fasteners

2019-04-15
Fastener experts believe that upwards of 95% of all fastener failures are the result of either the wrong fastener for the job or improper installation. Whether this shocking figure is accurate or not, it is irrefutable that threaded fasteners are poorly misunderstood by many in both the fastener and user communities. In October 1990 the USS Iwo Jima suffered a catastrophic steam valve accident minutes after leaving port following repairs to its steam plant. In one of the single most deadly events of Operation Desert Storm, ten of the eleven crewmen present in the engine compartment would lose their lives.

Materials Degradation in Mechanical Design Wear, Corrosion, Fatigue and their Interactions

2019-04-09
Materials degradation from environmental conditions is a common factor that will often occur in mechanical equipment used in every type of environment. These processes can frequently materialize in unpredicted and harmful ways, especially when they interact and lead to early component damage or failure. This five-session course will summarize the mechanisms that cause materials and mechanical components to degrade in service through exposure to deleterious mechanical and environmental conditions.

Fuel Systems Material Selection and Compatibility with Alternative Fuels

2019-04-02
This course will introduce the participants to the factors governing fuel-material compatibility and methods to predict and empirically determine compatibility for new alternative fuel chemistries.  By understanding the mechanisms and factors associated with chemically-induced degradation, participants will be able to assess the impact of fuel chemistry to infrastructure components, including those associated with vehicle fuel systems.  This course is unique in that it looks at compatibility from a fuel chemistry perspective, especially new fuel types such as alcohols and other biofuels.

Steel Self-Drilling Tapping Screws

2014-09-09
WIP
J78
This SAE Standard covers the dimensional and general specifications, including performance requirements, for carbon steel self-drilling tapping screws suitable for use in general applications. It is the objective of this document to insure that carbon steel self-drilling tapping screws, by meeting the mechanical and performance requirements specified, shall drill a hole and form or cut mating threads in materials into which they are driven without deforming their own thread and without breaking during assembly. Appendix A is included to provide a recommended technique for measuring the case depth on the screws.

Test Procedures for Evaluating Bolt-Load Retention of Magnesium Alloy

2018-11-02
WIP
USCAR35-1
1.1 A bolt-load retention (BLR) test is a practical test to determine the bolt load of a fastener joint with time and at given temperatures. There are three types of BLR tests described in this standard, namely general-purpose test, design-purpose test, and screening material test. A general-purpose BLR test may be used for screening materials, while a design-purpose BLR test is usually used to verify the BLR behavior of a specific joint. The screening material test is an example of the general-purpose test for typical automotive applications. 1.2 The test procedures provides guidance in the following areas: (a) BLR sample and test fixture, (b) test fastener, washer and nut, (c) bolt-load measurement and data acquisition, (d) heating device, (e) initial loading, (f) baseline test, and (g) instrumentation of strain gages and calibration (see Appendix B).

WIP
J2271
This SAE Parts Standard provides dimensional and quality assurance requirements for 1/4 through 2 in sizes of studs in the following configurations in standard materials used for ship system applications: a. Continuous thread studs in UNRC and 8UNR series. b. Double end studs (clamping type) where both ends are of the same thread length (UNRC or 8UN). Also called bolt-studs. (These are suitable for mating with nuts or the set end may be installed with anaerobic thread locking compound.) c. Double end studs (interference thread type) with the nut end having UNRC or 8UNR series thread and where the tap end has NC 5 HFS interference fit thread forms. Also called a tap end stud. A complete metric companion to this document is provided in SAE J2271M, therefore no metric equivalents are presented. These studs are primarily or use in ship systems and equipment.
