An efficient, durable, and quiet running drivetrain is as essential to customer satisfaction as styling and interior creature comforts. In this e-Seminar, you will be exposed to various methods that can be used to accomplish this goal. Designed to help you visualize both individual components and the entire drivetrain system - without reference to complicated equations - this e-seminar focuses on the terms, functions, nomenclature, operating characteristics and effect on vehicle performance for each of the drivetrain components. Instructor Joseph Palazzolo provides an introduction to the various...

In this e-seminar, Dr. William Mark McVea details the transmission's primary functions - to provide drivability characteristics to the vehicle and adaptive connectivity between the engine and the remainder of the fixed function driveline. The discussion then focuses on the latest transmission systems designed to achieve the most efficient engine operation. Current designs, the components and sub-systems used, their functional modes, how they operate, and the inter-relationships are examined. Automatic control, hydro-mechanic design theory and implementation, mechatronics, toroidal transmission...

In this e-seminar, James Walker, Jr. delves into brake control technology. Starting with the fundamentals of the tire-road interface, this course introduces participants to brake control system mechanization, system sensor needs, and the basic control strategies employed by anti-lock braking systems (ABS), traction control systems (TCS), electronic stability control systems (ESC), and their derivatives. Limiting factors and compromises that must be made in the design and development of brake control systems are covered through a brief review of hydraulic brake system functionality, the friction...

The engine control module (ECM, or on-board computer) is the tool used to control the fuel injection rate, fuel injection timing, ignition timing, rate of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and other functions. The task of "programming" the ECM is much easier for a race engine than for a production engine because the calibration engineer does not need to be concerned about emissions: EGR, keeping the exhaust catalyst "happy", etc. In this e-Seminar, Professor Ron Matthews provides a practical introduction to ECMs, including the uses for the various sensors. He discusses the specific methods used...

In this e-seminar, Dr. William Mark McVea covers the most relevant topics related to internal combustion engines - ranging from the chemistry of combustion to the kinematics of modern internal components. You will gain a practical, thorough approach to the basics of most common designs of internal combustion engines as they apply to the gaseous cycles, thermodynamics and heat transfer to the major components, and the design theories that embody these concepts. The more than ten hour e-seminar is broken into ten modules including insights into two- and four-stroke cycles, principle operational differences...

This e-Seminar presents an introduction to vehicle dynamics from a vehicle system perspective. The theory and applications are associated with the interaction and performance balance between the powertrain, brakes, steering, suspensions and wheel and tire vehicle subsystems. The role that vehicle dynamics can and should play in effective automotive chassis development and the information and technology flow from vehicle system to subsystem to piece- part is integrated into the presentation. Dr. Richard Lundstrom develops and solves governing equations of motion for both steady and transient conditions....
