SESSIONS

Corrosion Prevention

The SAE ABA Body Engineering and SAE ACAP committee is

please to present a short group of papers focused on automotive

corrosion. Topics include stone chipping effects on auto

underbody, nano composite coatings, evaluation of coatings in

Hawaii, film formation on Magnesium alloys due to corrosion, new

environment-friendly surface pretreatment, update on the aluminum

closure project, and a breakdown/explanation on a new automotive

corrosion test specification. Speakers from universities, local

industry as well as international companies will be included. This

half day session is sure to provide interesting and detailed material.

Organizers:

Matthew P. McGreer, Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC; Kevin

A. Smith, Auto Technology Co.

Innovations in Steel Sheet Products and

Processing

This session highlights some of the latest developments in

sheet steel alloy development, high strength steel processing,

and application-specific property optimization. Included are:

lightweight alternatives to monolithic steels; advanced high

strength steels (AHSS); and innovative uses of stamped steel

components in automotive applications.

Organizers:

Brandon Hance, Timken; John G. Speer, Colorado School of Mines;

Benda Yan, Mittal Steel USA Inc.

Load Simulation and Analysis in

Automotive Engineering: (Part 2 of 8)

Multibody Dynamics System Modeling and

Applications

Focusing on the comparison of the simulation results between rigid

and flexible modeling approaches, flexible body modes selection,

mount loads predictions for vehicle body, frame/sub-frame, leafspring,

exhaust system, driveline, powertrain, the comparison of

the modeling techniques between vehicle dynamics simulation

and durability loads simulation, optimal development process

considering vehicle dynamics and durability loads, data processing

and analysis techniques, loads sensitivity analyses for various

model parameters, DOE and optimal design techniques for loads

minimization, prediction of manufacturing tolerance effects on

loads, robust design methods, etc.

Corp.; Peijun Xu, Xiaobo Yang, Chrysler LLC; Joshua Guo, Ford

Motor Co.; Joseph A. Schudt, General Motors Corp.

Modeling, Testing and Design of

Materials for Dummies and Structures

for Crash Safety Applications (Part 2 of 2)

This session will discuss recent developments in material models

and tests, seat and occupant system models, and dummies for

impact analysis.

Organizers:

Arbor; Tau Tyan, Ford Motor Co.

Nanotechnology for Automotive

Applications (Part 2 of 3) - Nanostructured

Materials and Coatings

The nanotechnology provides the automotive industry with

tremendous space for innovations and mammoth opportunities for

new and emerging markets. The automotive industry will benefit

from nanotechnology by getting improved fuel efficiencies and new

alternative energy sources, reducing in vehicle weight, enhancing

material strength, appearance and functions, increasing the degree

of comfort and flexibility and so on. Almost all the automobile

components can be improved by nanotechnology. This session

presents the latest in automotive applications of nanotechnology

that would pave the road for the future automotive technologies.

Organizers:

Jagjit Nanda, Ford Motor Co.; Gholdm-Abbas Nazri, GM R&D

Center; Minjuan Zhang, Toyota Technical Center USA Inc.

Welding and Joining and Fastening (Part 2

of 2)

This session will address modeling and testing of methods of

welding on a variety of materials and applications.

Organizers:

Sheng-Dong Liu, Generalety LLC; Jwo Pan, Univ. of Michigan-Ann

Arbor; Tau Tyan, Ford Motor Co.

Load Simulation and Analysis in

Automotive Engineering: (Part 3 of 8) Vehicle

Ride Comfort Analysis and Simulation

Focusing on the analysis and enhancement of vehicle ride comfort,

modeling, simulation, testing, evaluation and optimization of sitting

driver and passengers, seat, suspension and whole vehicle, the

effect of beaming, shaking, impact harshness, brake judder and

any other phenomena on ride comfort of driver and passengers,

goods damage, etc.
