This part of SAE J551 specifies on-board transmitter simulation test methods and procedures for testing passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The electromagnetic disturbances considered in this part of SAE J551 are limited to continuous narrow band electromagnetic fields. SAE J551/1 specifies general, definitions, practical use, and basic principles of the test procedure.
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to rigid bumper or rigid structure points and flexible components of passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles, and light trucks. This document is intended as a guide toward standard practice and is subject to change to keep pace with experience and technical advances.
Every year in the U.S., about 300 people die, and 15 thousand vehicles suffer accidents, while backing up. In this episode of SAE Eye on Engineering, Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Brooke looks at Continental's new intelligent backup camera that's small in size but huge in capability. SAE Eye on Engineering also airs Monday mornings on WJR 760 AM Detroit's Paul W. Smith Show.
This document describes the collection of IUMPR data required by the Heavy Duty On-Board Diagnostic regulation 13 CCR 1971.1 (l)(2.3.3), using SAE J1939-defined messages incorporated in a suite of software functions.
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Industrial Lubricants Committee has developed a number of industrial, non-production lubricant performance specifications. The purpose of these voluntary SAE specifications is to: a. Define minimum performance requirements for industrial lubricants. b. Provide lubricant suppliers with performance targets for a minimum number of key industrial lubricants. Improve the availability of these lubricants to member companies. Provide a plant oriented, user friendly, classification system using common test standards and properties.
In "Simulation Tools for Engine Design" engineers from Ricardo Software discuss the use of simulation software in new powertrain development. Another engineer, this time from General Motors, talks about how simulation tools helped them solve the challenge of fuel flow reversion while designing the new turbocharged Cadillac V6 engine. This episode highlights: • The challenge of simulating complex and combined systems in one vehicle • An example of how a library of components in a software package can be chosen to form a specific system and analyzed • How computational fluid dynamics simulation tools were used to help redesign a new planum
