As information and entertainment to and from the vehicle (Telematics) become more prolific it is critical to increase our understanding of how the driver understands and uses Telematics functions. Equally critical is how those functions impact the driver. The papers in this technical paper collection will address these issues.
This technical paper collection focuses on cybersecurity for cyber-physical vehicle systems. Topics include: design, development and implementation of security-critical cyber-physical vehicle systems, cybersecurity design, development, and implementation strategies, analysis methodologies, process and life-cycle management, comparisons of system safety and cybersecurity, etc. Application areas include: security-critical automotive systems as well as other security-critical ground vehicle and aviation systems.
This technical paper collection focuses on the general topic of combustion engine gaseous emissions (regulated and non-regulated). This includes well-to-wheels CO2 production for alternative technologies, fuel economy and all greenhouse gas emission research. It also includes hydrocarbon species and specific NOx species production over aftertreatment devices as a result of changes in fuel specification and the inclusion of bio-derived components and consideration of secondary emissions production (slip) as a result of aftertreatment.
Thistechnical paper collection includes papers on the full array of transmission and driveline related components. Here we dig deeper into the design and development of transmission and driveline sub-systems and individual components by examining the design iterations, development details and other facets of the actual hardware.
Vehicle diagnostics deals with the development, delivery and execution of diagnostic procedures for vehicle systems. This technical paper collection will explore new technologies, processes and trends in the area of vehicle diagnostics.
This technical paper collection focuses on technologyes related to modeling and analysis, quality assurance, as well as utilization for rapid prototyping, robost tolerance designs, structural crash performance of a compact car through CAD, accurate analytical solutions of resilience for high-modulus elastic-plastic material, testing, transfer path analysis, NVH, vehicle development, wheel input forces and brake design.
This technical paper collection will cover conceptual, modeling and experimental studies relating to advanced turbochargers/superchargers and advanced boosting systems to achieve increased power density, better fuel economy, and reduced emissions.
This technical paper collection covers papers describing experiments and test data, simulation results focused on applications, fuel/additive effects, combustion control, and mode change. Papers with an emphasis on the modeling aspects of combustion are also included.
This technical paper collection focuses on current developments in the fields of vehicle fire science, statistics, risks, assessment and mitigation. Papers addressing vehicle design, live-fire tests and fire investigation issues applicable to traditional, electric and alternatively fueled vehicles are included.
This technical paper collection includes papers related to welding and joining of similar or dissimilar materials of plastics, composites, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and conventional and advanced high strength steels. Papers related to friction stir (spot) welding, ultrasonic welding, resistance welding, arc welding, laser welding, brazing or soldering, riveting and bolting, and adhesive joining, strength, fracture and fatigue of welds, joints and fasteners are covered.
This technical paper collection contains papers describing experiments and test data, simulation results focused on applications, fuel/additive effects, and RCCI (reactivity-controlled compression ignition).
This technical paper collection covers the complete particulate filter system. There are papers covering the DOC aging as well as the effect of high sulfur fuel on the DOC. A couple of papers study the effect of ash accumulation and two papers cover a novel new asymmetric cell design and modeling of this new design. Finally we have a paper on gasoline particulate filters.
