48-Volt Developments

Development of higher-voltage electrical systems in vehicles has been slowly progressing over the past few decades. However, tightening vehicle efficiency and emissions regulations and increasing demand for onboard electrical power means that higher voltages, in the form of supplemental 48 V subsystems, may soon be nearing production as the most cost-effective way to meet regulations. The displacement of high-wattage loads to more efficient 48 V networks is expected to be the next step in the development of a new generation of mild hybrid vehicles. In addition to improved fuel economy and reduced emissions, 48 V systems could potentially save costs on new electrical features and help better address the emerging needs of future drivers. Challenges to 48 V system implementation remain, leading to discussions by experts from leading car makers and suppliers on the need for an international 48 V standard. Initial steps toward a proposed standard have already been taken.

A Systems Approach to Engine Cooling Design

This paper is divided into two parts: part 1 - systems engineering fundamentals and part 2 - engine cooling design from a systems engineering perspective. In part 1, we explain how the task of designing a complex system can be made easier by the application of systems engineering principles. (This part is self contained and may be of general interest to those who have no special interest in engine cooling). Systems engineering provides three key benefits: 1. It facilitates communication; requirements define the problem, they allow team members to see their own work in context, key information is standardized and made easier to visualize and verify, an "audit trail" is maintained ensuring that important information is documented, and human memory is no longer relied on for important decisions; 2.

Additive Manufacturing of Aerospace Composite Structures: Fabrication and Reliability

Additive Manufacturing of Aerospace Composite Structures: Fabrication and Reliability introduces the reader to the current state of technologies involved in processing and design of polymer-reinforced fiber composites using additive manufacturing's automated fiber placement methods, through ten seminal SAE International papers. Currently, the material layup strategy in terms of process selection and manufacturability is usually not prioritized in the design phase. Engineers do not have a good way to see how their design choices can affect the manufacturing process beyond their initial structural-level considerations. The result is typically a large amount of experimental testing necessary to qualify the materials and structures typified in the classical building-block approach. Such an environment makes mistakes difficult to solve and, should redesign be required, obtaining reliable information is hard to piece together.
