  • Title Tandem Cylinder Assembly & Test Cell (.pdf)
    This project featured a synchronous assembly system to assemble and test a Tandem Master Cylinder. The system was designed, built, and installed for a Japanese Tier one supplier in the USA by Advanced Assembly Automation (AAA), a division of Assembly and Test Worldwide (ATW). All phases
  • The Necessity Of A Plateaued Cylinder Wall Finish (.pdf)
    A detailed presentation of several test run engines with performance results of lower blow-by, increased compression, less ring and cylinder wall wear with the Flex-Hone Process. 28 pages.
  • New Test Facility Mimics Rail Car "Humping "
    quot;Humping, " in railroad jargon, means to couple railroad cars together by slamming them into one another at low speed. A 14-wheel rail test car (left) slams into a special barrier at speeds to 15 mph. The system from Control Power-Reliance, Troy, Mich., emulates the humping action of railroad
  • Engine Test for Accelerated Fuel Deposit Formation on Injectors Used in Gasoline Direct Injection Engines (.pdf)
    An accelerated fuel injector deposit formation test was developed to understand fuel deposit formation on fuel injectors for Gasoline Direct injection engines. As part of the test development, both a side mount and a central mount Gasoline Direct injection style 4 cylinder engines were operated
  • Using a nondestructive test to qualify corrosive specialty gas cylinders
    , the wafer surface can become contaminated. The first challenge suppliers of corrosive specialty gases face in improving the reliability of their products is to develop a delivery cylinder that remains nonreactive to the gases over many product fills, yet minimizes cost. Although the steel material used
  • 2002 Audi A4 1.8T CVT
    I wanted to test the continuously variable transmission (CVT) Just in case you can't decipher Audi's code for naming vehicles, the car I tested was an A4 with the 1.8-liter turbocharged engine and continuously variable transmission. It's a great little sedan, and I use the term a little bit loosely
  • Bulk Solids, How To Make a Perfect Mix
    samples for testing each batch of beads. The test consisted of using a Brookfield CT3 Texture Analyzer to compress each cylinder to 50% of its original length while monitoring the force response. The two accompanying graphs show stress-strain force response for five replicate tests of well blended
  • Sorting out the truth about pneumatic standards
    Japanese test methods better predict pneumatic valve performance. SMC follows the latest ISO standards when rating pneumatic valve flow in terms of sonic conductance. Full stroke time of a pneumatic cylinder is inversely proportional to the maximum exhaust flow rate. represents the maximum constant
  • A New Technique for Residual Gas Estimation and Modeling in Engines (.pdf)
    This paper addresses the longstanding problems of residual gas measurement during engine dynamometer testing, and of real-time residual modeling for engine control applications. A new method is described which is simple to apply, requiring only currently standard calibration test cell
  • 2002 Ford Focus ZX5
    New this year, Ford's Focus ZX5 echoes the sportiness of its three-door ZX3, but with a couple more doors. Surprisingly, the ZX5 is the same length, width, and height as the ZX3, but weighs 49 lb more. During the test-drive week, I was under the delusion the ZX5 was larger than its sibling
  • FEA makes manufacturing outcomes more certain
    useful manufacturing information. Isotherms from an Abaqus-based Simulation Advisor on the final shape of a tube and cylinder joined by inertia welding compare well with a test of an inertia-welded part. To get strong and reliable joints when faced with new manufacturing processes, engineers often
