Increased public pressure to improve commercial truck safety and new stopping distance regulations have intensified the need to better understand the factors influencing heavy vehicle braking performance. To assist individuals and their organizations in preparing for these new truck braking standards, this seminar focuses attendees on understanding medium-duty hydraulic brake systems and heavy-duty air brake systems and how both systems' performance can be predicted, maintained and optimized.

Driven by the need for lower emissions, better fuel economy and higher efficiency, hybrid vehicles are appearing in many different configurations on today's roadways. While the powertrain components such as the drive motor, motor controller and cooling system are somewhat familiar to the automotive industry, the battery systems are a relatively unfamiliar aspect. This seminar will introduce participants to the concepts of hybrid vehicles, their missions and the role of batteries in fulfilling those requirements.

While a variety of new engineering methods are becoming available to assist in creating optimal vehicle designs, subjective evaluation of vehicle behavior is still a vital tool to deliver desired braking, handling, and other dynamic response characteristics. In order to better prepare today’s engineer for this task, this course offers twelve modules devoted to key the fundamental principles associated with longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics.

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.

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.

Vehicle functional requirements, diesel emission regulations, and subsystem thermal limits all have a direct impact on the design of a powertrain cooling airflow system. Severe duty cycles, minimal ram air, fouling, and sometimes unconventional package layouts present unique challenges to the designer. This course introduces many airflow integration issues and vehicle-level trade-offs that effect system performance and drive the design. The goal of this course is to introduce engineers and managers to the basic principles of diesel cooling airflow systems for commercial and off-road vehicles.

Hybrids, and to a lesser extent, electric vehicles, have been on the road since 1997. Although just two hybrids were on the market in 2001, there are more than a dozen today, and the market is ramping up quickly, driven by fuel prices and constraints, environmental regulations, and customer demand. The commercial vehicle market is also rapidly embracing hybrid technology. This two-hour webi seminar will highlight the passenger, light-duty, and heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles that are currently in production, offered for sale, or planned for near-term production.

High-voltage, high-current energy storage systems and electrical circuits in many current and future alternative- propulsion powertrains present unique challenges to the automotive industry. Care must be taken to minimize risk to all who come into contact with the vehicle throughout its development and life cycle, including powertrain developers, assembly line workers, service technicians, vehicle occupants, and first responders. Significant risk to life and limb can arise from technical issues surrounding these vehicles.

Although hybrid powertrains have been on the market for little more than a decade, hybridization has quickly become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles will require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Additional market drivers, such as California's greenhouse gas legislation (now adopted or in process in 20 US states and two Canadian provinces) and a possible global agreement on greenhouse gas production at the end of 2009 may help to accelerate the process.

Considerable attention has been given to the design and efficiencies of electric hybrid propulsion systems and energy storage technologies. Although they draw much less attention, hydraulic hybrid propulsion and regenerative braking systems for road vehicles are a cost effective alternative to electric systems and have relevance to important sectors of the passenger and commercial vehicle markets. In this two-day seminar, hydraulic hybrid vehicle systems and their potential will be examined using model based evaluations.

Vehicle functional requirements, emission regulations, and thermal limits all have a direct impact on the design of a powertrain cooling airflow system. Given the expected increase in emission-related heat rejection, suppliers and vehicle manufacturers must work together as partners in the design, selection, and packaging of cooling system components. An understanding and appreciation of airflow integration issues and vehicle-level trade-offs that effect system performance are important to the team effort. The severe duty cycles, minimal ram air, and sometimes unconventional package layouts present unique challenges.

One of the fastest growing automotive fields, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), presents both opportunities and challenges. HEVs are more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly compared to conventional vehicles. Optimizing the power intake in HEVs allows the engine operation to be kept within the range designed for best fuel economy and lowest emission, while the motor/generator system either provides additional power input, or generates electricity using the excessive power from the engine. It also recovers the kinetic energy during braking or coasting.

This course will develop a basic understanding of the fundamentals of operation and explain the current state-of-the-art design of the modern transmission designs. Transmission systems in current production will be used as a practical example throughout the seminar. Two basic product areas of truck and off-highway transmission systems will be reviewed: Planetary Automatic Transmissions, and Power-Shifted Transmissions. The functional requirements of the "current" market and the operational needs of its drivers will drive the course. Course material will be presented in the chronological order in which it was introduced into the marketplace.
