Deep thinking about deep space NASA is mining the rich fields of knowledge and creativity in the minds of university students to improve living and working conditions in space. Rise of the underdogs Problem-plagued effort last year spurs Baja SAE team from VIT University of India to overhaul itself and its car. Materials, data-aq packages among choices touted in Collegiate Cup contest Central Michigan's Baja team, which did some impressive materials analyses, takes home the SAE Mid-Michigan Section's trophy as part of that professional group's Engineers Week activities. Toyota looks for more from college students than high GPA "Those that participate in an SAE related-activity display passion for the automotive industry, and these candidates are ideal for our organization."

Abstract In this study, the method of analyzing the thin-wall crashing box of impact attenuator for student formula is proposed by the means of simulation and validation following Formula Society of Automotive Engineers-SAE rules. The analysis was performed based on computerized simulation software for calculated the absorption capacity of the simple and multiple cell of thin-walled tubes. The effect of thin-wall thickness consisted of 1.2 mm, 1.6 mm and 2.0 mm was also evaluated. The simulation results as energy absorption, crashing force efficiency, and absorbed energy per unit mass were identified among nine patterns. According to the results, the increase of interior cell number and the wall thickness contribute the absorbed energy ability. However, the increment of wall thickness lead to the increase of crashing force magnitude. Regarding the kinetic energy, a 2×2 multiple cell box with the thickness of 2 mm is designated for construction and verify.

North America was the world’s second largest automotive market by sales in 2014 with just over 19.4 million units sold, versus 23 million in China and 18.2 million units in Europe. The North American market and, in particular, the US one which accounts for about 80% of the regional sales, approaches the 19-million unit mark under different underlying fundamentals. Significant chunks of excess capacity have been cut at several automotive plants in North America, leading to the end of unhealthy over-discounting in order to secure line saturation and reduce imbalances in inventories.

The aviation, space, and defense industries rely on the development and manufacture of complex products comprised of multiple systems, subsystems, and components each designed by individual designers (design activities) at various levels within the supply chain. Each design activity controls various aspects of the configuration and specifications related to the product. When a change to design information is requested or required, the change has to be evaluated against the impacts to the higher-level system. Proposed changes to design information that the design activity identifies to be minor and have no effect on their product requirements or specifications have the potential to be concurrently implemented and approved, where authorized to do so. Changes that affect customer mandated requirements or specifications must be approved prior to implementation.

Abstract The Sunswift Solar Car project has been running at UNSW Australia in Sydney for 20 years as of 2015. It is an entirely student-run endeavour which revolves around the design and development of a solar/electric vehicle nominally designed to compete in the World Solar Challenge rally from Darwin to Adelaide every 2 years. The student cohort is drawn from a range of schools, disciplines and backgrounds, and the team has been increasingly successful and high-profile particularly in its second decade. The excellent level of hands-on training that the project provides to students is not rewarded with academic credit yet many of the alumni credit the project with launching their careers and ambitions. The team's world record-breaking latest vehicle, eVe, is the fifth constructed and presents a radical departure from previous cars in that it carries a passenger in a conventional layout and is based around a road-going sports car.

ASEAN light vehicle output increased 6% year on year in January 2015, with 352,928 units produced. Full-year 2015 production is expected to reach 4.25 million units, up 10%. Production in Thailand rose 8.7% y/y in January 2015. Indonesian production contracted slightly in January 2015, down 1%. Nonetheless, production recovered from the weak output in December 2014, thanks to the government announcing lower subsidized fuel prices in mid-January. The growth of automotive production in the ASEAN region has in tandem spurred the growth of an automotive supplier industry. With very few local automotive suppliers that could initially supply the parts and the quality required by international carmakers, international suppliers had to follow suit and supply components locally. This report provides a detailed look at the ASEAN Automotive & Supplier Market, focusing on Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

The intent of this document is to define the methodology for suspect parts inspection using radiological inspection. The purpose of radiology for suspect counterfeit part inspection is to detect deliberate misrepresentation of a part, either at the part distributor or OEM level. Radiological inspection can also potentially detect unintentional damage to the part resulting from improper removal of part from assemblies, which may include, but not limited to, prolonged elevated temperature exposure during desoldering operations or mechanical stresses during removal. Radiological inspection of electronics includes film radiography and filmless radiography such as digital radiography (DR), real time radiography (RTR), and computed tomography (CT). Radiology is an important tool used in part authentication of microelectronic devices. Radiographic analysis is performed on parts to verify that the internal package or die construction is consistent with an exemplar item.

Through the use of ultra-high frequency ultrasound, typically above 10 MHz, Acoustic Microscopy (AM) non-destructively finds and characterizes physical features and latent defects (visualization of interior features in a layer by layer process) — such as material continuity, sub-surface flaws, cracks, voids, delaminations and porosity. AM observed features and defects can be indicators that the components were improperly handled, stored, altered or previously used.

This document describes an evaluation method which measures the effectiveness of a specified test plan used to screen for counterfeit parts. The method includes the determination of the types of defects detected using a specified test plan along with the related counterfeit type coverage. The output of this evaluation will produce the counterfeit defect coverage (CDC), the not-covered defects (NCD), the under-covered defects (UCD), and the counterfeit type coverage (CTC). This information will be supplied to the test laboratory’s customer in both the test report and the Certificate of Quality Conformance. This evaluation method does not address the effectiveness of detecting tampered type devices.
