This technical paper collection is focused on vehicle dynamics and controls using modeling and simulation, and experimental analysis of passenger cars, heavy trucks, and wheeled military vehicles. The papers address active and passive safety systems to mitigate rollover, yaw instability and braking issues; driving simulators and hardware-in-the-loop systems; suspension kinematics and compliance, steering dynamics, advanced active suspension technologies; and tire force and moment mechanics.
The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to provide standardized dimensions for mounting starting motors. (See Figures 1 through 4.) It is recommended that a full register diameter having a minimum depth of 2.54 mm (0.100 in) be provided in the flywheel housing to insure proper control of gear center distance and clearance between pitch diameters. The clearance between the starting motor pilot diameter and the register diameter in the flywheel housing should be 0.03 mm (0.001 in) minimum to 0.25 mm (0.010 in) maximum. Text noted with an asterisk in Figures 1, 2, and 3, should not exceed root radius of pinion in order to provide clearance for the flywheel. The face of the starting motor mounting flange should be relieved at its junction with the pilot diameter to avoid mounting interference with flywheel housing. For backlash allowance between the pinion and ring gear refer to SAE J543. Dimensional units—millimeter (inch)
During the past decade, there has been a steady increase in studies addressing rollover crashes and injuries. Though rollovers are not the most frequent crash type, they are significant with respect to serious injury and interest in rollovers has grown with the introduction of SUVs, vans, and light trucks. A review of Occupant and Vehicle Responses in Rollovers examines relevant conditions for field roll overs, vehicle responses, and occupant kinetics in the vehicle. This book edited by Dr. David C. Viano and Dr. Chantal S. Parenteau includes 62 technical documents covering 15 years of rollover crash safety, including field crash statistics, pre- and rollover dynamics, test procedures and dummy responses.
With production and planning for new electric vehicles gaining momentum worldwide, this book – the third in a series of five volumes on this subject – provides engineers and researchers with perspectives on the most current and innovative developments regarding electric and hybrid-electric vehicle technology, design considerations, and components. This book features 13 SAE technical papers, published from 2008 through 2010, that provide an overview of research on electric vehicle engines and powertrains. Topics include: Hybrid-electric vehicle transmissions and propulsion systems The development of a new 1.8-liter engine for hybrid vehicles Vehicle system control software validation The impact of hybrid-electric powertrains on chassis systems and vehicle dynamics High-torque density motors, and interior permanent magnet synchronous motors
The objective of this document is to enhance the test procedure that is used for ejection mitigation testing per the NHTSA guidelines as mentioned in the FMVSS226 Final Rule document (NHTSA Docket No. NHTSA-2011-0004). The countermeasure for occupant ejection testing is to be tested with an 18kg mass on a guided linear impactor using the featureless headform specifically designed for ejection mitigation testing. SAE does not endorse any particular countermeasure for ejection mitigation testing. However, the document reflects guidelines that should be followed to maintain consistency in the test results. Examples of currently used countermeasures include the Inflatable Curtain airbags and Laminated Glass.
This SAE Information Report describes results of testing of the SAE J1746 ISP-Vehicle Standard for the communication of spatial data references between central sites and mobile vehicles on roads. Testing was performed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and its contractors, resulting in a document from which this Information Report has been extracted. Tests were performed by computer analysis and corroborated by field tests with a mobile vehicle.
This report details continuing work examining the fatigue life durability of a US Army Trailer. This report describes, through example, a process to evaluate and reduce the experimental data needed for a Mechanical Systems Physics-of-Failure analysis. In addition the report describes the process used to validate the computer simulation models.
