TGDI Technology and Higher Performing Lubricants

Industry experts offer insight into one of the passenger car industry’s most impactful powertrain strategies: turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) technology. The global demand for TGDI engines is increasing as emission regulations become more stringent, consumer expectations for vehicle performance shift, and industry demand for fuel economy grows. In this 60-minute Webinar, experts from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, Honeywell Transportation Systems – Turbo Technologies, Southwest Research Institute, and Lubrizol Additives discuss TGDI technology and advanced lubricants that enable fuel efficiency, performance, and durability. An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.

Accelerate Development of Powertrain ECUs with Virtual Hardware

In conjunction with SAE

Automotive powertrain ECUs are increasingly reliant on complex MCUs/SoCs with multicore architectures, complex programmable timers, such as Generic Timer Module (GTM) and communication protocols that integrate CAN-FD, FlexRay, and Ethernet. Beyond the hardware components, there is also greater reliance on embedded software to achieve the required fuel efficiency/emission standards and the need to satisfy safety standards, such as ISO 26262.

Unlocking the Secrets of Amorphous Metals

What do bulk metallic glasses (BMGs), amorphous metals and liquid metals all have in common? Basically they’re all the same thing – non-crystalline metal alloys that are simultaneously glasses, metals, and liquids. Sounds impossible, doesn’t it? But it’s not. And they possess some incredible properties. Think of them as the shape-shifting superheroes of the materials world.

Advanced Passive Thermal Management Technologies for Power Electronics: Solutions to Reduce Noise, Power Consumption, and Operating Costs

Components housed within power electronic devices continue to shrink in size and increase in power. This trend results in high heat flux components integrated into small packages; driving the need for enhanced thermal management to ensure high performance and long life for the devices. Properly managing the thermal loads within these systems can be challenging; and traditional solutions of larger pumps and fans result in more noise and higher power consumption.

Anti-Friction Coatings: How to Eliminate Noise for the Life of Interior Plastic Components

In conjunction with SAE

Modern passenger cars are equipped with sophisticated measures to avoid propagation of noise from the engine and gearboxes into the passenger compartment, which creates a very comfortable environment for car occupants. On the other hand, this enables “new noises” to become audible – in particular, those generated by the sliding of plastic components made of thermoplastics having poor affinity under the tribological aspect.

The Role of Multi-domain Dynamic Models for Functional Verification in Model-based Systems Engineering

Much has been made of the power of Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) as a formal method for capturing and managing design requirements for complex engineering systems. But what does MBSE really mean for the engineering design organization? Whenever a proponent of MBSE speaks with a mechanical or electrical design engineer on the topic, they are likely speaking different languages. Even the phrase “systems engineering” can have very different meanings!
