Solid Model Tolerancing 1-day

Providing you have a basic understanding of Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing practices, this course explains the fundamental definitions, concepts, and methods from the ASME Y14.41 Standard on Digital Product Definition Data Practices. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert and former Chairman of the Y14.41 Committee, Alex Krulikowski, the course focuses on understanding the benefits of a math-based product development process. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems.

Robust Design

2019-07-15
Engineers are taught to create designs that meet customer specifications. When creating these designs, the focus is usually on the nominal values rather than variation. Robustness refers to creating designs that are insensitive to variability in the inputs. Much of the literature on robustness is dedicated to experimental techniques, particularly Taguchi techniques, which advocate using experiments with replications to estimate variation. This course presents mathematical formulas based on derivatives to determine system variation based on input variation and knowledge of the engineering function.

Linear Impactor Calibration Procedure

2016-06-17
CURRENT
J3095_201606
This recommended practice provides a procedure for measuring quantitatively the physical characteristics of linear impactors that are believed to effect impact test accuracy, repeatability, and reproducibility. Suggested values and tolerance are also provided for specific applications of linear impactor testing (i.e. Ejection Mitigation tests, Head form Impact tests, Body Block tests). Two functional groups of linear impactors are considered, those whose function is related primarily to displacement and those related to measuring acceleration or force.

Vision Glossary

CURRENT
J264_200406
The function of uniform terminology is to promote understandable and exact communication in the area of vision. A great deal of effort has been expended to make these definitions suit this purpose. It is recognized that this terminology, like other dictionaries, must be revised periodically to reflect current usage and changing needs. The Driver Vision Subcommittee of the Human Factors Engineering Committee, therefore, solicits suggestions for improvements and additions to be considered in future revisions.

AERODYNAMIC TESTING OF ROAD VEHICLES—TESTING METHODS AND PROCEDURES

1993-01-01
HISTORICAL
J2084_199301
The scope of this SAE Information Report is confined to wind-tunnel testing, although it is recognized that many aspects of the aerodynamic characteristics of road vehicles can be investigated in other test facilities (such as water-tanks) or, especially, on the road. For example, coastdown testing is often used to determine aerodynamic drag (either in isolation or as part of the total resistance), and artificial gust generators are used to investigate the sensitivity of vehicles to cross-wind gusts. Also excluded from the present Report are climatic wind-tunnel tests of road vehicles, which are defined in more detail in Section 3. The Report covers the aerodynamic requirements of a wind-tunnel for automotive testing, together with the facility equipment needed and the requirements affecting the test vehicle or model.

VHDL-AMS Statistical Analysis Packages

2006-10-23
CURRENT
J2748_200610
This document specifies the interface and the behavior of the VHDL-AMS packages for use in modeling statistical behavior. These packages are useful in defining the statistical variation of parameters of electrical, electronic, and mechatronic components and sub-systems. These can then be used with simulation tools to analyze the performance and reliability of systems composed of these components and sub-systems. Providing a standard definition of the package interfaces and their behavior is intended to facilitate the exchange of models between component and system manufacturers and the use of different CAE simulation tools. The SAE statistical package supports the statistical modeling of design parameters subject to tolerances for designs described using the VHDL or VHDL-AMS languages.
