Measuring the effectiveness of your automotive parts cleanliness program

Many of the existing methodologies for automotive part cleanliness testing provide only one key parameter of diagnostic information such as bulk particle weight, particle size or chemical composition. Often one parameter can provide partial insight into the upstream manufacturing process, but typically the results are inconclusive. Unclean or contaminated parts can create field failures. In this webinar we will discuss the current cleanliness standards such as ISO 16232 and VDA 19, and discuss the advantages/disadvantages of current cleanliness testing methods. In addition, Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) with Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) will be introduced for evaluating cleanliness. Primary topics (what the registrant will learn): • Review of current cleanliness standards in automotive • Advantages of current cleanliness testing methods • Disadvantages of current cleanliness testing methods • Success stories using a cleanliness monitoring program

Next Level Fuel Consumption and CO2 Reduction: CAE Driven Strategies for Engine & Driveline Optimization

Stringent regulations on greenhouse gases and fuel economy continue to pressure the auto industry to look at all avenues available for efficiency improvements. To meet these regulations a wide variety of avenues are being explored such as: combustion system efficiency improvements; reduction in engine throttling, parasitic, and idling losses; electrification/hybridization; and advanced transmission architectures. While implementing technologies targeted at fuel economy improvements and greenhouse gas reductions, related customer acceptance criteria such as cost, durability, NVH, and drivability must also be considered. Advanced CAE tools provide for efficient optimization of engines and drivelines to meet the wide array of development requirements. This webcast explores the application of multi-body dynamics simulation techniques via case studies including engine friction reduction, hybrid drivelines, start/stop systems, and driveline NVH. Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the experts during the program’s live Q & A segment.
