SAE Manual for Incorporating Pneumatic Springs in Vehicle Suspension Designs

1994-09-01
The extensive and increasing use of pneumatic springs in automotive applications has made it appropriate that this manual be prepared to assist the engineer and the designer in understanding the basic principles and uses of pneumatic springs. This manual provides descriptions of the principles involved in pneumatic spring function along with details of the various configurations of pneumatic spring devices and the unique characteristics of each. Pneumatic spring types have been defined correlating with SAE J511 in the SAE (Oct. 1970) handbook regarding pneumatic spring terminology. Background information tracing the evolution of pneumatic springs has been included, as well as some specific examples of design calculations to serve as a guideline for the designer.

Manual on Design and Manufacture of Coned Disk Springs (Belleville Springs) and Spring Washers

1988-12-01
This manual is the latest edition in the group of spring manuals currently under the review of the SAE Spring Committee. The preceding SAE manuals on coned disk springs were published in 1950 (First edition), and 1955 (Second Edition). Developments during the past 30 years necessitated a complete revision. In addition to updating the treatment of coned Disk springs, material on other spring washers, not directly related to the coned Disk Spring, has been added. In accordance with current sAE practice, customary units have been replaced by metric SI units throughout this manual; for a conversion table see the Appendix.

A Systems Approach to Engine Cooling Design

1999-11-15
This paper is divided into two parts: part 1 - systems engineering fundamentals and part 2 - engine cooling design from a systems engineering perspective. In part 1, we explain how the task of designing a complex system can be made easier by the application of systems engineering principles. (This part is self contained and may be of general interest to those who have no special interest in engine cooling). Systems engineering provides three key benefits: 1. It facilitates communication; requirements define the problem, they allow team members to see their own work in context, key information is standardized and made easier to visualize and verify, an "audit trail" is maintained ensuring that important information is documented, and human memory is no longer relied on for important decisions; 2.

Counterfeit Electronic Parts: Supply Chains at Risk (DVD)

2015-04-15
"Spotlight on Design" features video interviews and case study segments, focusing on the latest technology breakthroughs. Viewers are virtually taken to labs and research centers to learn how design engineers are enhancing product performance/reliability, reducing cost, improving quality, safety or environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance. Just how prevalent is the problem of counterfeit electronic parts? What are the consequences of using sub-par components in safety or mission critical systems? The Federal Aviation Administration estimates that 2% of the 26 million airline parts installed each year are counterfeit, accounting for more than 520,000 units, maybe more.

Safety and Reliability in Cooperating Unmanned Aerial Systems

2010-01-01
This book provides a comprehensive overview of recent advances in the analysis and design of health management systems for cooperating unmanned aerial vehicles. Such systems rely upon monitoring and fault adaptation schemes. Motivation for their study comes from the fact that, despite the use of fault-tolerant control software and hardware embedded onboard air vehicles, overall fleet performance may still be degraded after the occurrence of anomalous events such as systems faults and failures. Cooperative health management (CHM) systems seek to provide adaptation to the presence of faults by capitalizing on the availability of interconnected computing, sensing and actuation resources. This monograph complements the proposed CHM concepts by means of case studies and application examples. It presents fundamental principles and results encompassing optimization, systems theory, information theory, dynamics, modeling and simulation.

Vehicle-Bridge Interaction Dynamics

2004-01-01
The commercial operation of the bullet train in 1964 in Japan marked the beginning of a new era for high-speed railways. Because of the huge amount of kinetic energy carried at high speeds, a train may interact significantly with the bridge and even resonate with it under certain circumstances. This book is unique in that it is devoted entirely to the interaction between the supporting bridges and moving trains, the so-called vehicle-bridge interaction (VBI). It provides an up-to-date coverage of research conducted on various aspects of the VBI problems. Using the series of VBI elements derived, the authors study a number of frontier problems, including the impact response of bridges with elastic bearings, the dynamic response of curved beam to moving centrifugal forces, the stability and derailment of trains moving over bridges shaken by earthquakes, the impact response of two trains crossing on a bridge, the steady-state response of trains moving over elevated bridges, and so on.

Heat Treatment of Gears: A Practical Guide for Engineers

2000-12-01
Increased demand for gears to transmit more power through smaller, lighter, quieter, and more reliable packages that must operate over a wide range of service conditions, has made the design and manufacture of gears much more complex. Gears manufactured from certain steels are found to meet these demands, and become especially effective when heat treated and finish machined for high geometric accuracy. However, distortion of the gear after heat treatment offers the gear engineer a challenging opportunity not only in ensuring a high quality product but also in controlling manufacturing costs. Heat Treatment of Gears is designed to provide the gear design engineer with a better understanding of heat treatment and its effects on gear quality and performance, especially as these considerations are critical to ensuring that the gears perform satisfactorily under anticipated service conditions.
