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.

Accelerated Exposure of Automotive Exterior Materials Using a Controlled Irradiance Water-Cooled Xenon Arc Apparatus

2008-01-11
CURRENT
J1960_200801
This test method specifies the operating procedures for a controlled irradiance, water-cooled xenon arc apparatus used for the accelerated exposure of various automotive exterior materials. This standard is limited to the models of xenon arc test apparatus specified in the Section on Apparatus. All other models of xenon arc test apparatus must use SAE J2527 to perform the test conditions specified in SAE J1960. SAE J2527 is the performance standard based on the test parameters of SAE J1960. Use of xenon arc test apparatus to perform SAE J2527 must be agreed upon by contractual parties.

WET OR DRY PAVEMENT PASSENGER CAR TIRE PEAK AND LOCKED WHEEL BRAKING TRACTION

1969-03-01
HISTORICAL
J345_196903
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the best known techniques for evaluating peak and locked wheel braking traction. It covers an important phase of tire braking traction, namely, the wet or dry pavement straight ahead conditions. However, this is but a small portion of the whole field of tire traction. As test procedures are established for other phases of this complex study, additional supplementary procedures will be written. A discussion of this entire subject is contained in Appendix B to this recommended practice.

AUTOMOTIVE METALLURGICAL JOINING

1970-10-01
HISTORICAL
J836_197010
This report is an abbreviated summary of metallurgical joining by welding, brazing, and soldering. It is generally intended to reflect current usage in the automotive industry; however, it does include some of the more recently developed processes. More comprehensive coverage of materials, processing details, and equipment required may be found in the Welding Handbook, Soldering Manual, and other publications of the American Welding Society and the American Society for Testing and Materials. AWS Automotive Welding Committee publications on Recommended Practices are particularly recommended for the design or product engineer. This report is not intended to cover mechanical joining such as rivets or screw fasteners, or chemical joining processes such as adhesive joining.

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.

MAGNESIUM CASTING ALLOYS

1989-01-01
HISTORICAL
J465_198901
This document has not changed other than to put it into the new SAE Technical Standards Board Format This SAE Standard covers the most commonly used magnesium alloys suitable for casting by the various commercial processes. The chemical composition limits and minimum mechanical properties are shown. Over the years, magnesium alloys have been identified by many numbering systems, as shown in Table 1. Presently, SAE is recommending the use of the use of the UNS numbering system to identify those materials. Other equally important characteristics such as surface finish and dimensional tolerances are not covered in this standard.

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.

HISTORICAL
J647_196701
The following schematic diagrams exemplify the SAE recommended method of illustrating automotive transmission arrangements. They were developed to standardize industry practice and facilitate a clear understanding of the functional interrelations of the gearing, clutches, hydrodynamic drive unit, and other transmission components. Two variations of diagrams are used: Transmission in neutral and in gear. For illustrative purposes, some typical transmissions are shown.
