This Hydrospace Information Report (HIR) identifies the general environmental considerations for the design, development, evaluation, and testing of advanced surface craft, submersible vehicles, and other marine craft. This HIR provides criteria on the environmental limits within which marine vehicles, related components, and associated equipment should operate satisfactorily and reliably. This HIR is intended for use as a guide for the development of specific environmental requirements to be included in detailed specifications for marine vehicles and associated equipment. Specific requirements are in a state of continual change as our knowledge of the ocean environment increases. The ocean environment varies with location and time. Changes in the ocean environment can occur not only on a seasonal basis but also monthly, weekly, daily, and in some cases even hourly.

This SAE Standard has been adopted to provide a basis for dynamometer determination of gross engine power and torque under reference conditions. It is intended for use primarily by engine manufacturers who supply engines for installation by others in applications where the engine manufacturer may not control the induction and exhaust system design or the speed at which the engine is run.

A widely used material for lightning strike protection of CFRP structures within the aerospace industry is expanded metal foil (EMF). An issue with EMF is micro cracking of the paint, which can result in corrosion of the metal foil and subsequent loss of conductivity. Boeing researchers examined the issues of stress and displacement in the composite structure layup, which contribute to paint cracking caused by aircraft thermal cycling.

The passby noise is the net effect of the noise from the engine, tires, vehicle panels, the fan and the exhaust silencer. Exhaust noise is probably the loudest component of the passby noise in diesel trucks. The passby noise is measured when the vehicle is in transient condition according to the standards. A technique is developed to simulate the transient noise from the exhaust using 1-d simulation software AVL-Boost. It considers thermodynamics of combustion in the engine including the turbocharger, inertia of the engine and the vehicle. The technique helps in optimizing exhaust silencer, acceleration and in-cylinder parameters in transient conditions and the turbocharger fatigue. A 165 kW 6-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engine is simulated. The transient performance of the engine in the vehicle is validated by comparing the predicted results with the observed fuel consumption on road, time to accelerate to 60 km h−1 and the fluctuations in the turbocharger speed. The Linear Acoustics model of the silencer in conjunction with this transient model of the engine is used to predict the insertion loss of the silencer and the vehicle passby noise.

This work describes the development and use of the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) technique to evaluate the dynamic behavior of a torsional vibration rubber damper (TVD) used in a spark ignition internal combustion engine. The TVD was adapted to a test bench designed for this research and the HIL technique was applied considering the simulated dynamic response of the crankshaft. The results of the torsional vibration amplitudes are compared with measured values in a steady-state well identified condition, to experimentally validate the proposed mathematical model and the possibility to use the HIL technique to evaluate dampers and crankshaft behavior in realistic long term tests, where the rubber degradation also affects the dynamic response of the system. Finally, it was concluded that simulated and measured signals presented a good correlation in some engine operational conditions, reaching the objectives of this study.
