Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 1:00 pm In the past few decades, product liability law has dramatically changed the manufacturer's outlook in the design and manufacture of product. The concept of safety and reliability has been altered from a purely engineering/manufacturing concept to a legal/manufacturing approach. This new approach requires an understanding of legal concepts as related to the manufacturing and design process. The engineer's role has shifted to include a safety audit analysis to minimize the existence of a product defect and/or to defend the product in a way that is responsive to the legal concerns.

Electric drives are found in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, as well as battery electric vehicles. More than two million hybrid vehicles worldwide utilize electric drive components, and battery technology has matured enough to enable major manufacturers to develop light-duty and commercial electric vehicles for mass production and sale beginning in 2010-2012. It is also likely that many conventional vehicles will incorporate some form of idle-stop or stop-start system comprised of a low-output electric drive, as an integral part of efforts to meet U.S. CAFE fuel economy standards and EU CO2 emission requirements.

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem-solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include, but are not limited to, identifying root causes to quality or production problems, identifying optimized design and process settings, achieving robust designs, and generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior.

Tough times require searching for things that we can change and making them better. But so often problems are solved with 'band-aids' and not root cause solutions. This approach is getting too expensive and at best only helps companies tread water. To combat these issues and adopt a fresh approach, teams can use the methods and tools of Root Cause Problem Solving to first view problems as opportunities for improvement, identify root causes and implement solutions to prevent recurrence. Benefits include improved quality and customer satisfaction, reduced operation costs, and greater employee knowledge of work processes.

Data acquisition is required throughout the product's life cycle - in prototype performance evaluation, reliability/durability testing, duty-cycle analysis, end of line testing, and service and aftermarket product areas. Both lab and on-road testing are needed for components, sub-systems and entire vehicles. As in-vehicle networks become increasingly more sophisticated in terms of the number of controllers, the speed at which they communicate, and the number of parameters available, they are a virtual goldmine for the test engineer.

All gasoline powered vehicles and equipment create exhaust and evaporative and refueling emissions. Unlike exhaust emissions, which occur only when the engine is operating, evaporative emissions (evap emissions) occur all the time. Controlling evap emissions to PZEV levels is as challenging as controlling exhaust emissions. It becomes even more important in the case of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and extended range electric vehicles (EREV) which generate evaporative fuel vapors, but have no place to burn/consume the vapors when the engine does not operate for extended periods of time.

One of the most important safety critical components on cars, trucks, and aircraft is the pneumatic tire. Vehicle tires primarily control stopping distances on wet and dry roads or runways and strongly influence over-steer/under-steer behavior in handling maneuvers of cars and trucks. The inflated tire-wheel assembly also acts as a pressure vessel that releases a large amount of energy when catastrophically deflated. The tire can also serve as a fulcrum, both directly and indirectly, in contributing to vehicle rollover. This seminar covers these facets of tire safety phenomena.

Hybrid powertrains have been on the market for more than a decade and have become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. More than a million hybrids are sold globally per year, primarily in Japan and the US. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles may require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Hybrids are also starting to make inroads into markets in Europe, and have recently been introduced to Chinese and Indian markets, among others. Basic information on hybrids is scattered among information sources, and is often difficult to synthesize.
