ECCM 2016 - Proceeding of the 17th European Conference on Composite Materials | Year: 2016

Many currently available concepts for high-loaded tension and compression rods made of fibre composite are often only suitable for production in a large series under certain conditions, while remaining compliant with requirements inherent to commercial vehicles. The following investigation shows the entire development of a trailing link concept in carbon fibre reinforced plastic/aluminium differential construction for the rear axle of a MAN TGX long-haul transport vehicle. Design aspects with regard to cost-effective production as well as the design by means of classical laminate theory and FE simulation are described in detail. One of the most significant challenges that transpired from the study was the load transfer between the fibre-plastic composite rod and the bearing element made of aluminium, in which production tolerances have a significant effect. The proposed solution constitutes a clamping connection with tolerance equalisation and adaptability across components in order to make the component usable even for other applications. In addition, the geometry of the composite component allows for continuous production and therefore high profitability. Comparison with current standard production trailing links shows a considerable weight saving. Functional integration of the rubber bushing offers further potential for lightweight construction. © 2016, European Conference on Composite Materials, ECCM. All rights reserved.

CIRP Annals - Manufacturing Technology | Year: 2017

During every kind of sheet metal manufacturing process, thermoelectric voltages and currents result from a temperature rise between tool and sheet metal. Their influence on the process and tool wear behavior has been investigated insufficiently so far. Therefore, Seebeck coefficients, representing thermoelectric properties, have been determined for several materials. The correlation between different Seebeck coefficients of tool, respectively, sheet materials and arising thermoelectric currents are exemplarily shown by an instantaneous measurement during blanking. An adequate material selection with regard to thermoelectric properties reduced adhesive wear to 22%. The obtained results improve the fundamental understanding of wear causing interactions. © 2017.

A temperature rise occurs in the sheet metal and tool parts due to the dissipation of a large part of plastic work during blanking. The resulting temperature in the shearing zone has various impacts on the process. The correlation between the temperature rise and sheet metal behaviour under varying process parameters is investigated. Causal associations can be shown by in-situ measurements of the dynamic temperature development at the cutting edge of the punch and analyses of the sheet metal behaviour. The presented results provide essential knowledge for further experimental, analytical and numerical blanking investigations. © 2015 CIRP.

Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics) | Year: 2016

[Context & motivation] Requirements for automotive software systems are predominately documented in natural language and often serve as a basis for the following development process. Therefore, requirements artifact quality is important. Requirements often contain references to specific states of a system, which we call modes (e.g., “While the system is running,...”). [Problem] However, these references are often implicit and therefore, we suspect them as possible source for misunderstandings and ambiguities. [Principal idea] In this paper, we explore the relation between quality defects of natural language requirements and the description of modes within them. For this purpose, we investigate review findings of industrial requirements specifications and assess howmany findings contain issues addressing a mode and which defect types are most affected by mode-related findings. [Contribution] Our preliminary results showthat 46% of all considered review findings contain issues addressing a mode. Defect types in which modes played a major role were completeness and unambiguity. Based on these results, we argue that explicitly specifying modes prior to requirements formulation may increase the artifact quality of natural language requirements specifications. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.

In today's business environment many enterprises react to changing conditions by implementing a Lean Production System (LPS). Although the basics knowledge about the LPS is available, a powerful and holistic Continuous Improvement Process (CIP) during the Daily Operations is not given in many cases. As a solution the MAN Truck & Bus AG implemented Transformation-Waves as a powerful and holistic addition to the established CIP-concept. The paper describes the state of the art for CIP-concepts as well as the Transformation-Waves in detail. It is validated that they are a very helpful brick for a sustainable vitalization and evolution of the Lean Production System. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

SAE Technical Papers | Year: 2015

A Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) system for Electronic Control Units (ECU) of electro-pneumatic brake systems is presented. The HiL system runs a real-time capable vehicle model comprising of both the vehicle dynamics and the electro-pneumatic brake system. The dynamic behaviour of the vehicle can be simulated either by a real-time multi-body vehicle model or by a simpler system dynamic (double-track) model. To assess the quality of the system dynamic vehicle model, it is compared to a multi-body vehicle model which was validated with comprehensive experimental results. Discrepancies can be seen for highly unsteady manoeuvres. Reasons for these discrepancies caused by the modelling topology of the system dynamic vehicle model are given. In order to simulate the electro-pneumatic brake system, a real-time model has been developed and validated. The different topologies of brake systems can be assembled from components and integrated into the vehicle model. The model of the brake system determines the transient response of brake torques at the wheels as a result of the electrical signals given by the ECU. The HiL system allows the simulation of anti-lock braking manoeuvres as well as manoeuvres that feature interventions of the Electronic Stability Control system (ESC). Using this developed approach, it is possible to estimate the consumption of air during an anti-lock braking manoeuvre or to assess the performance of the ESC during various manoeuvres. In the future, the presented system can support the homologation process of ESC by adjusting the parameters of the system in advance or by a virtual homologation of some of the numerous vehicle variants. © Copyright 2015 SAE International.


Eindhoven, Netherlands - HERE, the Open Location Platform company, today announced that it will serve as the primary location intelligence provider for RIO, the upcoming cloud-based digital platform for the transportation industry from Volkswagen Truck and Bus. Through its location platform, HERE will provide RIO users with highly accurate maps and a rich set of location services like real-time traffic, geocoding and routing for trucks. Additional platform functionalities will also enable users to address specific transportation needs. These include knowing when a moving asset enters or leaves a defined geographic area ("geofencing"); calculating an accurate estimate of trip costs by taking into account various vehicle profiles and toll systems across geographic areas; and creating the optimal sequence of waypoints based on time or distance traveled, factoring in specific delivery timeslots at individual drop-off locations. "We have selected HERE for its accurate global map database, rich feature set, and right level of flexibility, which allows for easy implementation. HERE enables us to go to market faster and they provide continued excellent support," said Frank Tinschert, VP Telematics and Digital Solutions at MAN Truck and Bus AG.
