R134a Refrigerant Charge Determination Test Method

2018-09-11
CURRENT
J3023_201809
The purpose of this document is to establish guidelines for determining the critical R134a refrigerant charge for off-road, self-propelled work machines as defined in SAE J1116 and Agricultural Tractors as defined in ANSI/ASAE S390. It will develop a minimum to maximum refrigerant charge range in which the HVAC system can maintain proper operation. Operating conditions and characteristics of the equipment will influence the optimum charge. Since these conditions and characteristics vary greatly from one application to another, careful consideration should be taken to determine the optimum R134a refrigerant charge for the HVAC system.

Scrap Tires

1998-03-20
Scrap Tires: Disposal and Reuse details the historical, technological, and economic issues related to the scrap tire industry, and the manner in which the scrap tire problem is addressed. The ultimate solution will be hastened by progress in the establishment of profitable commercial enterprises and markets to utilize scrap tires for their inherent intrinsic value. Scrap Tires provides advice on how scrap tires can be used for fuels, sealants, rubber mats, playground surfaces, equestrian arenas, wastewater treatment plant composts, golf courses, and more. Written from a business perspective, Scrap Tires focuses on the economics of tire recycling, providing valuable advice to individuals or companies. In addition to an exploration of markets, the book describes how tires are chopped, the machinery used in chopping tires, the grinding process, and the engineering properties of tire chips.

CURRENT
J2669_200601
This SAE Definition Document contains historic voltage regulation methods and test requirements that have not been previously published. The purpose of this document is to recommend a set of definitions and practices for use on current and future 12 V vehicle electric power regulation and control systems in internal combustion engine road vehicles. This document is not intended to include nor exclude regulators used in higher voltage vehicle electrical systems. The term “generator” rather than “alternator” will be used even though these terms may be used interchangeably in practice.

HANDLING AND DISPENSING OF MOTOR VEHICLE BRAKE FLUID—SAE J76 MAR85

1985-03-01
CURRENT
J76_198503
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended to provide basic recommendations to aid in the development and use of safe and efficient practices for all operations involving the handling and dispensing of brake fluids. The quality of brake fluid is important for the safe and efficient use of motor vehicles traveling on public highways. The latest SAE Standard which conforms to legal requirements applies to any brake fluid installed in the braking system of any motor vehicle. This SAE Recommended Practice is not intended as a documentation of current commercial practices employed in the handling and dispensing of brake fluid, but it is intended as a guide toward recommended practices, based upon technical knowledge, that will require the cooperation and assistance of industry and government to implement effectively.

Brake Hydraulic Component Flow Rate Measurement for High Differential Pressure (>5 bar)

2017-05-18
CURRENT
J3052_201705
This recommended practice provides a method, test set-up, and test conditions for brake hydraulic component flow rate measurement for high differential pressure (>5 bar) flow conditions. It is intended for hydraulic brake components which affect the brake fluid flow characteristics in a hydraulic brake circuit, that are part of a circuit for which the flow characteristics are important to system operation, and that are exposed to high operating pressure differentials (in the 5 to 100 bar range). Typical applications may include measurement of flow through chassis controls valve bodies, orifices in the brake system such as in flow bolts, junction blocks, and master cylinders, and through brake pipe configurations.

MANUAL CONTROLS FOR MATURE DRIVERS

1997-10-01
CURRENT
J2119_199710
Since little data exists to provide appropriate values for control parameters that would be appropriate for mature drivers, the following recommendations are of a general nature. However, they are based upon the current understanding of the aging processes that characterize mature drivers. Notwithstanding the lack of an extensive amount of data in this field, the dissemination of this SAE Information Report is considered to be appropriate and timely in light of the large increase in the number of mature drivers on the public roads, and because of the need to at least initiate efforts toward developing an information report covering this issue. It is realized that there may be cases where specific recommendations may conflict with vehicle packaging and/or operational requirements. Deviation from the recommendations may be necessary and permissible to achieve the best overall system performance.
