One of the hardest-fought battles in developing a new vehicle is the battle against noise, vibration and harshness, or NVH. Honda attacked NVH on all fronts. In this episode of SAE Eye on Engineering, Editor-In-Chief Lindsay Brooke looks at Honda's 2018 Odyssey minivan. SAE Eye on Engineering also airs Monday mornings on WJR 760 AM Detroit's Paul W. Smith Show. Access archived episodes of SAE Eye on Engineering.
We asked past AeroTech attendees to describe AeroTech in just one word. Their answers may surprise you! Tune in to find out just what AeroTech means to them, and discover what it could mean to you.
The worldwide drive to improved energy efficiency for engine systems is being supported by several engine R&D programs at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI). This research includes large programs in major-market engine categories, such as heavy-duty, non-road, and light-duty; and includes diesel, gasoline, and alternative fuel aspects. This presentation describes several key diesel engine programs being pursued under the SwRI Clean High Efficiency Diesel Engine consortium (CHEDE-VI), whose goal is to demonstrate future diesel technology exceeding 50% brake thermal efficiency. Additionally, SwRI?s High Efficiency Dilute Gasoline Engines consortium (HEDGE-II), is reviewed, where advanced technology for ultra-high efficiency gasoline engines is being demonstrated. The HEDGE-II program is built upon dilute gasoline engine research, where brake thermal efficiencies in excess of 42% are being obtained for engines applicable to the light-duty market.
