Advanced GD&T Competencies: Profile of a Surface Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
While the topic of profile is covered in a basic Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, those discussions often ignore the variations allowed with these symbols that enable them to be used in complex ways. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of the profile tolerances in GD&T and uncover the nuances of these two symbols. Since profile of a surface is arguably the most powerful GD&T symbol, its full potential will be explored. It can be used to control size, form, orientation, and location and its relationship to datums can be varied.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Composite Positioning Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
While the basics of position are covered in a standard Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, and sometimes a lone example of composite position is given, those discussions often overlook the variations allowed that enable more accurate control based on part function. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of “double-decker” position controls in GD&T. There are two distinct types: composite position (one symbol) and two single-segment position controls (two symbols). These are commonly used to locate patterns of features (bolt circles, etc.), but they are rarely taught in any depth.

Performance and Use of Polymer Plan Bearings in Transmission Design Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
As part of a broad transmission design philosophy, the understanding and application of tribological systems is critical. The number of interacting surfaces within a modern automotive transmission continues to increase, while the demands on the system continue to press the limits of traditional technologies. The understanding of each surface interaction within the greater system becomes increasingly important as each component is asked to do more to benefit the overall system. This short course will present the tribological performance of polymeric plain bearings as related to transmission applications.

FEA Beyond Basics: Thermal Analysis Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a powerful and well recognized tool used in the analysis of heat transfer problems. However, FEA can only analyze solid bodies and, by necessity thermal analysis with FEA is limited to conductive heat transfer. The other two types of heat transfer: convection and radiation must by approximated by boundary conditions. Modeling all three mechanisms of heat transfer without arbitrary assumption requires a combined use of FEA and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

ISO 14001:2015 Overview

Anytime
ISO 14001:2015 is an environmental management standard (EMS) developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The ISO 14001 standard is generic and can be used for any organization, whether it provides physical products or services. The requirements must be carefully interpreted to make sense within a particular organization. Developing mobility products and the environmental impact of this activity is not like producing food products or offering consulting services; yet the ISO 14001 standard, because it is business and management oriented can be applied to any activity.

Vibration Analysis Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used by engineers as a design tool in new product development since the early 1990"s. Until recently, most FEA applications have been limited to static analysis due to the cost and complexity of advanced types of analyses. Progress in the commercial FEA software and in computing hardware has now made it practical to use advanced types as an everyday design tool of design engineers. In addition, competitive pressures and quality requirements demand a more in-depth understanding of product behavior under real life loading conditions.

Introduction to Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM) is a methodology focused on change management and continuous improvement. It centers on early prevention and engineering knowledge, eliminating time spent debating ranking systems, waiting for lead engineers to document and list their concerns, identifying what types of concerns are open for discussion and resolution, and brainstorming without any actionable closure. This course will explain all phases of the DRBFM methodology and provide details on how to accomplish the specific steps.

Risk Management Throughout the Automotive Development Process Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Jon Quigley discusses the importance of this seminar. Automotive projects continue to grow in complexity. Studies provide a glimpse into the attributes of product development projects that have a high likelihood of failure. Knowing these attributes, the approach to the project can be structured to reduce the risks. For example, the scope of the project may already place the project at risk. Understanding the risks associated with the scope enables you to either reconsider the scope or work out strategies that will eliminate or at least mitigate the risks.

FEA Beyond Basics: Nonlinear Analysis Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been an indispensable tool for design simulation for several decades but this wide spread use has been limited to simple types of analyses. Relatively recently, more advanced analyses have given easy-to-use interfaces enabling design engineers to simulate problems formerly reserved for analysts. FEA Beyond Basics targets the FEA users who wish to explore those advanced analysis capabilities. It will demonstrate how to move past the ubiquitous linear structural analysis and solve structural nonlinear problems characterized by nonlinear material, large displacements, buckling or nonlinear connectors.
