Abstract Life-cycle assessments (LCAs) conducted, to date, of the end-of-life phase of vehicles rely significantly on assumed values and extrapolations within models. The end phase of vehicles, however, has become all the more important as a consequence of increasing regulatory requirements on materials recovery, tightening disposal restrictions, and the rapid introduction of new materials and electronics, all potentially impacting a vehicle's efficacy for achieving greater levels of sustainability. This article presents and discusses selected research results of a comprehensive gate-to-gate life-cycle-inventory (LCI) of end-of-life vehicle (ELV) dismantling and shredding processes, constructed through a comprehensive and detailed case study, and argues that managing and implementing creative dismantling practices can improve significantly the recovery of both reusable and recyclable materials from end-of-life vehicles. Although the amount of parts and materials recovered and directed for reuse, remanufacturing or recycling may be as much as 11.6% by weight of the ELVs entering a dismantling process [1], greater rates of reuse and/or recycling may be achieved by the strategic management of the ELVs entering the dismantling process according to age.

Abstract Nowadays the challenge in design of auxiliary devices for automotive small engines is focused on packaging reduction and on the increase of the performance. These requirements are in contrast to each other and in order to fulfil the project specifications, new and more refined design tools and procedures need to be developed. This paper presents a calculation loop developed by Pierburg Pump Technology Italy S.p.A. (PPT). It supports the design of a variable displacement oil pump component for engine applications. The work is focused on the fatigue life evaluation of a joint, which transmits the drive torque from the engine to the oil pump. The aim of the procedure is to calculate the onset of the surface fatigue phenomenon in the hexagonal joint which drives the oil pump, taking into account the axes misalignment and the flat-to-flat clearance. The study has involved several matters, experimental measures, CFD, MBA and FEM analyses. A calculation procedure has been set up in order to consider all the necessary loads applied on the joint.

ARP5316D
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) addresses the general requirements for data recording procedures, packaging, and storing of elastomeric seals and seal assemblies which include an elastomeric element prior to the seal being assembled into hardware components. It applies specifically to those elastomeric seals and seal assemblies packaged shortly after manufacture. The storage period prior to installation of the elastomeric seals and seal assemblies into hardware components is commonly referred to as shelf life. The information contained in this ARP is intended to be utilized by those organizations who do not have specific requirements or recommendations already in place for the control of elastomeric seals and seal assemblies. This ARP can be specified in control, storage, and procurement documents. However, when the requirements of this document are in conflict with the customer's requirements or specifications, the requirements of the customer's detailed specification shall govern.

This Aerospace Information Report provides general information to aircraft designers and engineers, regarding LOX, its properties, its storage and its conversion to gas. Much useful information is included herein for aircraft designers regarding important design considerations for a safe and effective installation to an aircraft. The associated ground support equipment needed to support operations of LOX equipped aircraft is also discussed. It is important to realize that LOX equipped aircraft cannot be supported unless this support infrastructure is also available. A significant part of this document will address the specific advantages, disadvantages and precautions relating to LOX systems. These are important issues that must be considered in deciding which oxygen system to install to the aircraft. Also, many commercial and military aircraft use aeromedical LOX equipment that is mostly portable equipment. Aeromedical LOX equipment is not addressed herein as it is beyond the scope of this document.

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers scarf-cut polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) retainers (backup rings) for use in glands in accordance with AS4716. They are for use in hydraulic and pneumatic system components as anti-extrusion devices in conjunction with O-rings, packings and other elastomeric seals for static and dynamic applications. Because of the construction of groove dimensions, backup rings specific to rod applications are designated "R" ~ Rod (Female), backup rings specific to piston applications are designated "P" - Piston (Male). Piston and rod types of virgin pigmented PTFE are also identified by color code which also distinguishes parts to this standard from those made from virgin PTFE to other standards. Backup rings specified herein have been designed for a temperature range of -65 to 275 °F (-54 to 135 °C) and a nominal operating pressure of 3000 psi (20.7 MPa) for code 09 material (AMS 3678/9). Alternate materials to AMS 3678 are offered for more arduous operating conditions.

AS6235A
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies standardized gland design criteria and dimensions for static face seals for internal pressure and external pressure applications for aerospace hydraulic and pneumatic applications using the same size range as AS4716 and AS5857 where applicable. Some small diameter sizes are excluded because they are not practical. The glands have been specifically designed for applications using AS568 size elastomeric O-rings with related Class 2 tolerances at nominal system operating pressures up to 3000 psi (20 680 kPa) utilizing no anti-extrusion (backup) rings. While the gland dimensions herein have been designed for pressures up to 3000 psi (20 680 kPa) these glands may be used for higher pressures, but extra precautions need to be taken and testing should be performed to ensure to ensure integrity of performance. This specification covers the basic design criteria and recommendations for use with standard size elastomeric O-rings, however, these glands are also suitable for use with other elastomeric and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) based seal geometries.

ARP5312
The recommended test method applies to hydraulic actuators that are components of commercial and military aircraft control systems. This recommended practice establishes guidelines for comparison testing and reporting the effectiveness of rod scrapers only against dry dust and ingression of ISO standardized test dust into the fluid and should not be construed as a qualification process for rod scrapers since the macro contaminants which are not being tested here can affect scraper performance. To fully evaluate rod scraper effectiveness, the subject actuator design and its full operating environment needs to be evaluated.
