This SAE Recommended Practice specifies the performance test procedures and requirements of a plastic reservoir assembly suitable for use on a hydraulic brake master cylinder (reference SAE J1153). Intended usage is for on-road vehicles using brake fluid conforming to fMVSS-116 (DOT 3), and SAE J1703 specifications. This document includes the cap.cover and diaphragm as integral parts of the reservoir assembly. The fluid level sensor (FLS) is also included as an integral part of the assembly. However, additional FLS standards and/or requirements are applicable and necessary which are not covered in this document. This document is intended to provide a recommended practice and minimum performance requirements of current established designs on those reservoir assemblies generally used by individual manufacturers which have demonstrated satisfactory field performance. This document is applicable to new reservoir assemblies for commercial or aftermarket production.
The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to establish guidelines for the automatic transmission and hydraulic systems engineer to design rectangular cross section seals for rotating and static grooved shaft applications. Also included are property comparisons of polymeric materials suitable for these applications. Historically, material covered in this document is not intended to include aluminum contact applications.
This standard will be an updated version of SAEJ548/1. It is intended to specify the design requirements and dimensions for spark plugs and their cylinder head mounting. This standard will cover automotive, light duty non-automotive and small engine spark plugs. It does not include aircraft and large industrial engine type spark plugs..
Since the torque converter and fluid coupling are commonly used components of automatic transmissions in industry, the SAE appointed a committee to standardize terminology, test procedure, data recording, design symbols, and so forth, in this field. The following committee recommendations will facilitate a clear understanding for engineering discussions, comparisons, and the preparation of technical papers. The recommended usages represent the predominant practice or the acceptable practice. Where agreement is not complete, alternates have been included for clarification. EXAMPLE: Two systems of blade angle designations are described. Consequently when a blade angle is specified, the system should be designated. This SAE Recommended Practice deals only with the physical parts and dimensions and does not attempt to standardize the design considerations, such as the actual fluid flow angle resulting from the physical blade shape.
The following schematic diagrams exemplify the SAE recommended method of illustrating automotive transmission arrangements. They were developed to standardize industry practice and facilitate a clear understanding of the functional interrelations of the gearing, clutches, hydrodynamic drive unit, and other transmission components. Two variations of diagrams are used: Transmission in neutral and in gear. For illustrative purposes, some typical transmissions are shown.
This document covers the general physical, electrical, functional, testing, and performance requirements for a mechanized (hands free) conductive power transfer system primarily for transit buses using an overhead coupler capable of, but not limited to, transferring DC power. It defines a conductive power transfer method including the curbside electrical contact interface, the vehicle connection interface, the electrical characteristics of the DC supply and the communication system. It also covers the functional and dimensional requirements for the vehicle connection interface and supply equipment interface.
This SAE Information Report details some of the equipment and procedures used to measure critical characteristics of automatic transmission fluid (ATF) used in current automatic transmissions. It is intended to assist those concerned with the design of transmission components, and with the selection and marketing of automatic transmission fluids for the use in passenger car and light-duty truck automatic transmissions. The information contained herein will be helpful in understanding the terms related to properties, designations, and service applications of automatic transmission fluids.
Develop a test procedure to measure the simulated sag/creep of fuel tanks for gasoline hybrid vehicles where the tank pressure is controlled in a range from -150 to +380 mbar by a Fuel Tank Isolation Valve (FTIV) that represents 15 year and 150,000 mile lifetime.
This SAE RP provides a set of test methods and practices for the characterization of the properties of Li-battery cathode active material. It is not within the scope of this document to establish criteria for the test results, as these are usually established between the vendor and customer. It is not within the scope of this document to examine the rheological properties of the cathode material in slurry since such properties are influenced by the conductive additive and the solid loading, which are determined through discussion between the manufacturer and user. It is not within the scope of this document to examine the electrochemical properties of cathode materials since these are influenced by electrode design. The committee considers that it is impossible to establish an electrode design that would be appropriate for all cathode active materials.
This SAE Recommended Practice covers power transfer units (PTUs) used in passenger car and light truck applications. PTUs may be of the chain, geared, single- or multi-axis type and may incorporate a disconnect system that is manually or electronically shifted, although other configurations are possible. The operating points (speeds, temperatures, etc.) were chosen to mirror those of the United States Environmental Protection Agency Vehicle Chassis Dynamometer Driving Schedules (DDS).
This SAE Standard identifies the material and dimensional requirements for component connector tubes and related items for use in fluid power components. Connector tubes are also identified as quills, ferrules or transfer tubes. Connector tubes are used to connect fluid passages within a component or to connect one component to another; for example, connecting control valves to subplates. Related items include plugs, undrilled connector tubes and connector tubes for internal check valves and restrictors.
This SAE Recommended Practice defines a procedure, which will aid in assessing the contaminant sensitivity of hydraulic valves. The approach taken defines a test procedure with flexibility for testing valves in a wide range of contamination levels. The user of this procedure must establish the contamination levels for testing. Three levels are suggested which should cover the range for most valve applications. This procedure does not establish the contaminant sensitivity requirements for any valve. The user of this procedure needs to be aware of the system contamination level that the valve will operate in and select test contamination levels significantly higher than the operating level to assess the suitability of the valve. The test procedure permits a valve to be tested without disassembly and therefore permits protection of proprietary design information. This procedure assesses the contamination sensitivity of valves by contaminant lock.
This specification sheet establishes requirements for a low collapse pressure configuration filter element of a specific configuration with a minimum filtration ratio of 75 for particles larger than ? μm when designed and tested in accordance with SAE J2321 and this specification sheet. Note: The efficiency and dirt capacity have not yet been determined..
