SAE Eye on Engineering: Conti's Smart Backup Camera

2018-11-08
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.

Concepts in Turbocharging for Improved Efficiency and Emissions Reduction

2014-09-22
Legislative requirements to reduce CO2 emissions by 2020 have resulted in significant efforts by car manufacturers to explore various methods of pollution abatement. One of the most effective ways found so far is by shortening the cylinder stroke and downsizing the engine. This new engine then needs to be boosted, or turbocharged, to create the full and original load torque. Turbocharging has been and will continue to be a key component to the new technologies that will make a positive difference in the next-generation engines of years to come. Concepts in Turbocharging for Improved Efficiency and Emissions Reduction explores the many ways that turbocharging will deliver concrete results in meeting the new realities of sustainable, green transportation.

HISTORICAL
J830_199904
This SAE Standard establishes a vocabulary and definitions relating to the components used in fuel injection systems for compression ignition (diesel) engines. Definitions are separated into six sections by topic as follows: Section 3— Fuel Injection Pumps Section 4— Fuel Injectors Section 5— Unit Injectors Section 6— Governors Section 7— Timing Devices Section 8— High Pressure Pipes and Connections NOTE— When the word "fuel" is used in the terms listed it may be omitted providing there can be no misunderstanding.

Optical Imaging Evaluation of Impact Damage Resistance Testing on Exterior Finishes

2011-05-26
CURRENT
J2661_201105
This SAE Recommended Practice covers a procedure for evaluating plastic and multiple-layer coatings exposed to gravelometer testing (as defined in SAE J400) with an optical imaging and analysis system. The intent of the procedure is to detect, count and characterize instances of damage in the coated surface that fracture the top coat layer or penetrate through multiple layers of the coating system. It may be possible to extend this methodology of coating damage evaluation to specimens that have undergone test procedures or exposures that produce similar, discrete damage sites in the coating system. If so applied, evaluation results must be interpreted with respect to the limitations and intent implied by the original evaluation procedure and its associated rating system, if applicable.

Definition for Particle Size

2011-06-01
CURRENT
J391_201106
"Effective particle or domain size" is a phrase used in X-ray diffraction literature to describe the size of the coherent regions within a material which are diffracting. Coherency in this sense means diffracting as a unit. Small particle size causes X-ray line broadening and as such can be measured. It has been shown related to substructure as observed in transmission electron microscopy. Particle size is affected by hardening, cold working, and fatigue; conversely, there is increasing evidence that particle size, per se, affects both static and dynamic strength.

Cleanliness Rating of Steels by the Magnetic Particle Method

2018-01-09
CURRENT
J421_201801
This SAE Recommended Practice provides a rating procedure for the cleanliness rating of steels by the magnetic particle method. The procedure is based on counting the number of indications (frequency) and employs a weighted value to obtain a severity factor. The method outlined is similar to that described in SAE Aerospace Material Specification AMS 2301.

CURRENT
J604_201108
This SAE Recommended Practice is applicable to all types of reciprocating engines including two-stroke cycle and free piston engines, and was prepared to facilitate clear understanding and promote uniformity in nomenclature. Modifying adjectives in some cases were omitted for simplicity. However, it is good practice to use adjectives when they add to clarity and understanding.
