Brake Dynamometer Squeal Noise Test Procedure for Regenerative Systems

The SAE J3211 procedure applies to brake squeal evaluation using single-ended inertia dynamometers for friction couples used on vehicles with regenerative braking systems. This RP applies to squeal noise occurrences for on-road passenger cars and light trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of 4536 kg or below. The procedure incorporates aspects related to (a) minimum inertia dynamometer capabilties, (b) fixture requirements and setup, and (c) test sequences with emphasis on brake temperatures, brake pressure profiles, and strategies to represent brake blending.

The Practical Reference Guide for Corrosion of Welds - Causes and Cures

Expert witness and AWS lecturer Ted V. Weber draws upon his lengthy experience as a materials troubleshooter for DuPont to present this succinct introduction to basic corrosion mechanisms. It includes pitting, intergranular corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, erosion, crevice and galvanic corrosion, and selective leaching. Full color digital photos illustrate the costly destruction caused by corrosion in welds. The author offers clear advice on how to avoid and correct corrosion, including alloying for resistance.

Toyota Kata

This game-changing book puts you behind the curtain at Toyota, providing new insight into the legendary automaker's management practices and offering practical guidance for leading and developing people in a way that makes the best use of their brainpower. Drawing on six years of research into Toyota's employee-management routines, Toyota Kata examines and elucidates, for the first time, the company's organizational routines—called kata—that power its success with continuous improvement and adaptation. The book also reaches beyond Toyota to explain issues of human behavior in organizations and provide specific answers to questions such as: • How can we make improvement and adaptation part of everyday work throughout the organization? • How can we develop and utilize the capability of everyone in the organization to repeatedly work toward and achieve new levels of performance?

Technology for Magnesium Castings

The latest casting and processing technologies have raised the importance of magnesium in the transportation industry. As a structural material with low density and a very high strength-to-weight ratio, magnesium can reduce vehicle weight and, in turn, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase fuel economy. This book provides valuable information on: • melt control • process control • casting and solidification • heat treatment • materials selection • various casting processes The 18 chapter authors are world-class scientists, professors and engineers with countless years of industrial and laboratory experience. Each chapter was also reviewed by qualified metallurgists/materials engineers from the metalcasting industry, academia and research laboratories to ensure that only the highest quality information was accepted for publication.

Lectures of the 32nd International Vienna Motor Symposium

Proceedings from the 32nd International Vienna Motor Symposium now available through SAE International. One of the most prestigious conferences on engine development in the industry today, the International Vienna Motor Symposium, now in its 32nd year, gathers world renowned experts to discuss the current and future state of motor technology. According to Dr. Hans Peter Lenz, president of the Austrian Society of Automotive Engineers, who opened this year’s conference, markets are now in a better position to understand how internal combustion engines and electrified powertrains can actually complement each other. Presenters offered their input and experience in the development of new technologies enabling higher levels of fuel efficiency and power, longer range and a cleaner way for the mobility industry to move forward. The proceedings, available in two volumes and a CD, contain all the technical papers given during the meeting, both in English and in German.
