Considering the limitation of the existing method of engine controller's development, a method to establish a virtual test system of engine controller was proposed. Firstly, a virtual engine controller was developed in ETAS INTECRIO environment and a vehicle system was developed in Matlab/Simulink environment, they composed a closed loop system. Then the system was validated by compared the simulation results of the virtual test system with the vehicle test results and the hardware-in-the-loop simulation results. The comparison results show that the system established by this method could satisfy the test requirement in the early controller development stage. This system has the advantage of higher convenience and lower cost and can significantly improve the efficiency of the engine controller development. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

The cost of the development of airbag controller is very expensive for that generally required dozens of vehicles or sled tests to get ignition curve. To resolve this problem, this paper proposed an experimental method based on airbag controller works to simulate acceleration curves the pre-30 ms of crash by impacting tackle with a pendulum, and developed the related apparatus. A finite element model was established and verified by relevant experimental results. A theory of dual trapezoidal curve was introduced to simplify automotive impact acceleration curves based on the difference of crash acceleration every time. A new developing airbag controller was verified by simulating the simplified acceleration. Test results show that the maximum error between the value of airbag ignition obtained by the method and the value of the actual ignition is less than 10%, which proves that the method can be used for the development and design of the airbag controller. ©, 2015, Editorial Department of Journal of Chang'an University (Natural Science Edition).

In the present study, the extrusion process for the AZ31B magnesium alloy was simulated using a DEFORM-3D software package to establish a database in order to provide input data for artificial neural networks (ANN). The network model was trained by taking extrusion ratio, ram speed, shape complexity and ram displacement as the input variables and the extrusion load and exit temperature as the output parameters. The data from FEM simulations were submitted for ANN as a training file and then ANN built were used to predict the target parameters. The ANN predicted results were found to be in agreement with the FEM simulated and experimental measured ones. © (2010) Trans Tech Publications.

The present case study addressed a practical problem of wall thickness attenuation during extrusion to produce a complex thin-walled hollow magnesium profile. A HyperWorks FEM software package was employed to aid in identifying the causes for the wall thickness attenuation. Recommendations were made to adjust the interspacing between the mandrels and the height of the welding chamber. The modified dies yielded much improved results in terms of velocity and hydrostatic pressure uniformity. The wall thickness of the extrudate predicted using FEM simulation was very close to experimental measurements. The case study demonstrated the feasibility of using FEM simulation as a useful tool to solve industrial problems encountered in the production of complex profiles. © (2010) Trans Tech Publications.

Using MBD and dynamic isolog tree data framework an implementation method of 3D drawings was proposed to provide quality data sources for the tolerance optimization allocation process of NC machine tool. A tolerance analysis model was constructed based on the Jacobi spinor method, and sensitivity analysis for each link of tolerance chain was carried out. Under the conditions of the design requirements and with the principles of minimum cost, the optimal allocation of tolerance in each link was obtained. With grinding head of gantry rail grinder as example, 3D drawings of its components were set up, and the tolerance optimization allocation was completed in the system. The feasibility of tolerance optimization allocation method based on 3D drawings was verified. ©, 2014, China Mechanical Engineering Magazine Office. All right reserved.

The external flow field around the ideal body was simulated with the method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Some aerodynamic parameters were obtained. On the basis of analysis, the external flow field was simulated with different turbulent models, with the result being compared with that of the wind tunnel test. The analysis of the wake shows differences between turbulent models and Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) test. The results indicate that standard k-ε turbulent model could give reasonable prediction for drag, at the same time v2f turbulent model has higher calculation precision for vehicle external flow field.

A newly developed four-wheel-rhombus-arranged mobility system for lunar rover was presented. To improve the climbing-capability, the independent active swing arms were integrated with the passive rotary link structure in the mobility system. In order to investigate the climbing-capability, the mechanical judging criterions were put forward based on quasi-static analysis method of the mobility system. The climbing capability of the mobility system was analyzed using the criterions. Due to the adjustment of the swing arms, the influences of swing arms on the climbing-capability were studied. Furthermore, the climbing capability was optimized based on the genetic algorithm method. The results indicate that the climbing capability can be greatly improved in the severe environment.

A passenger car is severely damaged in car-to-truck underride accident which threatens the lives in the passenger car seriously. The objective of the study is to develop an energy-dissipating rear underride protection device (RUPD) for diminishing the hazard imposed on the passenger car and the occupants. The new RUPD which has energy-dissipating structure is designed. It is modeled in virtual environment together with a moving barrier (MB) and a contrastive common RUPD. Finite element simulation is performed for comparative analysis on the performance of the two RUPDs in LS-DYNA. In the virtual test, the MB crashes into the two RUPDs respectively according to the national standard GB11567.2-2001. The conditions of 54km/h crash speed and offset collision form are added to the virtual test for further test. The results show that under the national standard condition, the new RUPD dissipates 77% of the total crash energy and the MB's acceleration peak in the test of the new RUPD is 22.8g, which is 40% lower than that in the test of the common one. In the extension virtual tests, the new RUPD performs effectively in buffering, energy dissipating and underride protecting. © 2013 IEEE.
