The car - once everybody's dream and a key status symbol in most countries and cultures - has been extensively questioned in the last decades and in the last few years particularly. Urbanization, traffic congestion, pollution problems, heavy reliance on scarce oil supplies, safety issues and ever-growing competition, have all provided significant business challenges for the automotive industry. Many car manufacturers have had to fundamentally rethink their design, brand and marketing strategies to thrive in a savvy, consumer-led culture, and markets that are becoming increasingly restrictive in size and opportunity.

WIP
AS7492
The Counterfeit and Substandard Battery Risk Mitigation sub-committee, G21B, is proposed with the goal of addressing the significant risk presented by counterfeit and substandard batteries. A standard similar to the SAE AS6171 Anti-counterfeit standard will provide inspection methods and risk mitigation strategies, to help mitigate the risk for the Aerospace and Defense industries, to the benefit of all.

Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Netlist Assurance Test Methods

2016-02-15
WIP
AS6171/16
Netlist Assurance Test Methods exist to assess microcircuit designs for maliciously added, removed, or modified functions detrimental to system operation. In the context of the Microcircuit fabrication design process, these methods will be used to analyze a computer aided design (CAD) representation of the microcircuit. The Netlist Assurance Test Methods discover vulnerabilities, undisclosed functions (e.g. "kill switch", paths to leak passwords, or triggers of malicious activity) and changes from the original specifications of the devices. These methods are intended to be used with standard verification methods that the implemented design has remained unchanged through the many transformations in the design flow.

TECHNIQUES FOR SUSPECT/COUNTERFEIT EEE PARTS DETECTION BY RADIATED ELECTROMAGNETIC EMISSION (REME) ANALYSIS TEST METHODS

2016-05-16
WIP
AS6171/14
The intent of this document is to define the methodology for suspect/counterfeit parts inspection using REME Analysis. The purpose of REME Analysis for suspect counterfeit part inspection is to detect misrepresentation or tampering of a part. REME Analysis can also potentially detect unintentional damage to the part resulting from improper removal of the part from assemblies, exposure to electrostatic discharge, exposure to radiation outside of acceptable limits (ionizing or high-power electromagnetic), or degradation. Improper removal of part from assemblies may include, but is not limited to, prolonged elevated temperature exposure during desoldering operations or mechanical stresses during removal. Degradation may include, but is not limited to, prolonged burn-in/testing, exposure to out-of-specification environmental conditions, or use outside of expected electrical tolerances.

AS6171 TECHNIQUES FOR SUSPECT/COUNTERFEIT EEE PART PACKAGING DETECTION BY VARIOUS TEST METHODS

AS6171/15
Non-conformance and now Suspect counterfeit packaging represents a hazard to electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive devices or components through cross contamination during transport and storage while generating high voltage discharges to ESD sensitive devices during in shipping, the inspection process, handling and manufacturing. Several aerospace related issues involve long-term storage supplier non-conformance with antistatic foams, antistatic bubble, antistatic pink poly, vacuum formed antistatic polymers, Type I moisture barrier bags and Type III static shielding bags have posed issues. The late John Kolyer, Ph.D. (Boeing, Ret.) and Ray Gompf, P.E., Ph.D. (NASA-KSC, Ret.) were advocates in the utilization of a formalized physical testing material qualification process. Today, however, prime contractors and CMs rely heavily upon a visual inspection process for ESD packaging materials.

Recycling Potential of Polymers

1996-04-01

In order to reduce the volume of waste in general and of shredder waste from the disposal of scrap cars, the German Federal Government has prepared a draft regulation, which will be implemented unless the automotive industry and the distributors of imported cars take action on their own to achieve these objectives. The regulation provides that the car manufacturers are fully responsible for the environmentally controlled disposal of scrap cars. The return of scrap cars to the work industry must be free of change for the last owner. A nation-wide network for the return of scrap cars must be implemented by end of 1993. To reduce the amount of shredder waste the automotive industry is expected to practice recycling on non-metallic materials. Facilities required for thermal treatment of residues, which cannot be recycled, are to be installed on account of the originator, i.e. the automotive industry.

The Prediction of Shrinkage and Warpage in Plastics Injection Molded Auto Parts

1996-04-01
91A088
The article emphasizes the effect of flow on dimensional stability, mechanical properties and surface finish, and the close coupling of dimensional stability and mechanical properties. Warpage is the result of the balance between the structural stiffness of the part and the stress pattern resulting in variation in shrinkage due to area shrinkage, orientation, and thermal effects. The practical solution to warpage depends on the use of software to isolate the basic causes of warping which then leads to a logical solution procedure.

A Driving Simulator Using Microprocessors

1988-03-01

An inexpensive driving simulation system with sufficient fidelity has been developed. The system produces motion cues of four degrees of freedom, visual and auditory cues, and control feel on the steering wheel. This paper describes the features of this newly developed system and gives examples that demonstrate its effectiveness. The motion cues provided in this system are yaw, heave, and lateral and fore/aft accelerations. The lateral and fore/aft accelerations are simulated by tilting the simulator compartment. A computer-processed road image is given through a CRT monitor. The restoring torque of the steering wheel is produced by an electrical servosystem via a coil spring. Cruising sound is given in order to improve speed perception. Since the system uses digital computers, the vehicle characteristics are altered easily by merely rewriting the software. This enables us to simulate special vehicle dynamics such as front & rear wheel steering.

Predictable and unpredictable forces will change the direction of the charge-air systems industry. The driver of diesel engine development will be the stringent emissions regulations of the 1990s. The drivers in the gasoline engine market will be improved fuel economy, performance, durability and emissions. Forces will also influence the charge-air marketplace, including changes in emission standards, national fiscal policies, political issues, fuel prices, alternate fuels and consumer tastes. The world community mandate for engines that are clean, quiet, durable and fuel efficient will be satisfied, increasingly, by first-tier component suppliers developing integrated systems solutions.

Use of Statistical Energy Analysis Method to Predict Sound Transmission Loss of Sound Barrier Assemblies

1999-05-17
1999-01-1707
Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) method is used to predict Sound Transmission Loss (STL) of sound barrier assemblies (SBA) commonly used in automotive dashmat design. Tests are performed for dashmat plaques with and without design features, and SEA equations have been used for predicting transmission loss with acceptable accuracy below the interception (cavity resonance) frequency. For frequency range higher than interception point, the SEA software used overestimates STL. For dashmat tests with design features, test results and SEA predictions are generally agreeable.

Practical Applications of SEA CAE Analysis in Vehicle Sound Package Development

1999-05-17
1999-01-1702
Vehicle sound package serves two basic functions: general acoustic insulation and local problem treatment. The former is often done at the up-front phase of the vehicle development process, and the latter at the downstream phase when representative prototype hardware becomes available and specific noise problems are identified. This paper examines the goals and key tasks of practical SEA CAE applications in the two phases of the sound package development process. Topics on CAE model requirement, typical analysis applications, and ways to improve the effectiveness of SEA applications to compliment hardware testing are discussed.
