Liquid Atomization, Sprays, and Fuel Injection

Liquid fuel atomization and spray formation is the heart of the majority of stationary and mobile power generation machines that we rely on. This seminar focuses on the process of liquid atomization and spray formation and how it relates to fuel injection systems and emission of pollutants in modern engines. The seminar begins with background coverage of terminology, the purposes of liquid atomization and spray formation, and different designs of atomizers and nozzles employed in various industries.

Powertrain Selection for Fuel Economy and Acceleration Performance

Developing vehicles that achieve optimum fuel economy and acceleration performance is critical to the success of any automotive company, yet many practicing engineers have not received formal training on the broad range of factors which influence vehicle performance. This seminar provides this fundamental understanding through the development of mathematical models that describe the relevant physics and through the hands-on application of automotive test equipment. Attendees will also be introduced to software used to predict vehicle performance.

Automotive Heat Transfer

Heat transfer affects the performance, emissions and durability of the engine as well as the design, packaging, material choice and fatigue life of vehicle components. This course covers the broad range of heat transfer considerations that arise during the design and development of the engine and the vehicle with a primary focus on computational models and experimental validation covering the flow of heat from its origin in the engine cylinders and its transfer via multiple paths through engine components.

Fuel Systems Material Selection and Compatibility with Alternative Fuels

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.

Fuel Cells for Transportation

This is a three-day course which provides a comprehensive and up to date introduction to fuel cells for use in automotive engineering applications. It is intended for engineers and particularly engineering managers who want to jump‐start their understanding of this emerging technology and to enable them to engage in its development. Following a brief description of fuel cells and how they work, how they integrate and add value, and how hydrogen is produced, stored and distributed, the course will provide the status of the technology from fundamentals through to practical implementation.

Motor Fuel Technology, Performance, Testing, and Specifications

Fuel composition has had to change with the advent of more stringent emission regulations. Reformulated gasoline (RFG), for example, is vastly different from gasoline of even ten years ago. Tightening regulations on diesel emissions will dramatically change both diesel fuel and engine design. This three-day seminar will review the fundamentals of motor fuels, combustion and motor power generation. The primary content of the course provides a basic introduction to the technology, performance, evaluation, and specifications of current gasoline, diesel, and turbine fuels.

The Basics of Internal Combustion Engines

2020-11-16
In your profession, an educated understanding of internal combustion engines is required, not optional. This two-day technology survey seminar covers the most relevant topics - ranging from the chemistry of combustion to the kinematics of internal components of the modern internal combustion engine - for maximum comprehension. Attendees will gain a practical, hands-on approach to the basics of the most common designs of internal combustion engines, as they apply to the gaseous cycles, thermodynamics and heat transfer to the major components, and the design theories that embody these concepts.

Ambient Temperature Fixed Orifice Fueling

2016-11-21
WIP
J2601/4
SAE J#### establishes the protocol and process limits for hydrogen fueling of light duty vehicles when the fuel delivery temperature is not pre-cooled, so called “ambient fueling” designated by Table 1 of SAE J2601-2014. These process limits (including the fuel delivery temperature, the maximum fuel flow rate, the rate of pressure increase and the ending pressure) are affected by factors such as ambient temperature, fuel delivery temperature and initial pressure in the vehicle’s compressed hydrogen storage system. SAE J#### establishes standard fueling protocols based on a series of design cases representing fueling system engineering categories. These categories are intended to provide performance targets which allow decreasing fueling times relative to the most simple design case. Similar to the table and formula based approaches of SAE J2601-2014, this approach establishes a minimum performance criteria leaving open options for innovation to decrease fueling times.

Application Guideline for Use of Hydrogen Quality Specification

2014-04-15
WIP
J2719/1
The purpose of this TIR is to provide guidance for minimizing test requirements based on SAE J2719 while still ensuring fuel quality at hydrogen fueling stations for PEM fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and ICEVs (to the extent that has been determined). This document is intended to be used by both industry and regulators for routine (or periodic) monitoring of filling station performance.

Techniques for measuring the properties of lithium and lithium-ion battery anode active materials.

2017-10-18
WIP
J3159
This SAE RP provides a set of test methods and practices for the characterization of the properties of lithium battery anode active materials. Lithium battery anode active materials can be grouped in one of the following categories: lithium intercalation materials (including graphite, Li4Ti5O12); lithium alloying materials (including Sn, Si compounds/composites); lithium deposition materials (lithium metal). For the purposes of this document, material properties will be examined for particulate anode active materials (graphite, Li4TiO5, Sn compounds, Si compounds) and for metallic films (lithium metal). It is not within the scope of this document to establish criteria for the test results, as this is usually established between the vendor and customer It is not within the scope of this document to examine the electrochemical properties of anode materials since these are influenced by electrode design.
