  • 6. Physics-Based Models, Sensitivity Analysis, and Optimization of Automotive Batteries (2014-01-1865)

    The analysis of nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery performance is very important for automotive researchers and manufacturers. The performance of a battery can be described as a direct consequence of various chemical and physical phenomena taking place inside the container. In this paper, a physics-based model of a Ni-MH battery will be presented. To analyze its performance, the efficiency of the battery is chosen as the performance measure, which is defined as the ratio of the energy output from the battery and the energy input to the battery while charging.Parametric sensitivity analysis will be used to generate sensitivity information for the state variables of the model. The generated information will be used to showcase how sensitivity information can be used to identify unique model behavior and how it can be used to optimize the capacity of the battery. The results will be validated using a finite difference formulation.

  • Advanced Circuit Simulation using Multisim Workbench

    Multisim is now the de facto standard for circuit simulation. It is a SPICE- based circuit simulator which combines analog, discrete-time, and mixed-mode circuits. In addition, it is the only simulator which incorporates microcontroller simulation in the same environment. It also includes a tool for printed circuit board design. Advanced Circuit Simulation Using Multisim Workbench is a companion book to Circuit Analysis Using Multisim, published by Morgan & Claypool in 2011. This new book covers advanced analyses and the creation of models and subcircuits. It also includes coverage of transmission lines, the special elements which are used to connect components in PCBs and integrated circuits. Finally, it includes a description of Ultiboard, the tool for PCB creation from a circuit description in Multisim. Both books completely cover most of the important features available for a successful circuit simulation with Multisim.

  • Fundamentals of Engineering Economics and Decision Analysis

    The authors cover two general topics: basic engineering economics and risk analysis in this text. Within the topic of engineering economics are discussions on the time value of money and interest relationships. These interest relationships are used to define certain project criteria that are used by engineers and project managers to select the best economic choice among several alternatives. Projects examined will include both income- and service-producing investments. The effects of escalation, inflation, and taxes on the economic analysis of alternatives are discussed. Risk analysis incorporates the concepts of probability and statistics in the evaluation of alternatives. This allows management to determine the probability of success or failure of the project. Two types of sensitivity analyses are presented. The first is referred to as the range approach while the second uses probabilistic concepts to determine a measure of the risk involved. The authors have designed the text to assist individuals to prepare to successfully complete the economics portions of the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. Table of Contents: Introduction / Interest and the Time Value of Money / Project Evaluation Methods / Service Producing Investments / Income Producing Investments / Determination of Project Cash Flow / Financial Leverage / Basic Statistics and Probability / Sensitivity Analysis

  • Implementation of Head Injury Criteria in Bicycle-Car Accidents

    Several head injury criteria, some of which are generally accepted whereas others are newly proposed, are implemented and applied to multibody accident simulations of typical bicycle-car accidents. The main goal is to establish the importance of car - and bicycle speed and relative car-bicycle trajectory for accident reconstruction studies. For this purpose, Madymo® cyclist and car models are used in a parametric sensitivity analysis study. Head injury criteria include the HIC, maximum change in rotational velocity of the head and peak rotational head acceleration. Injury parameters are investigated for 30 different cases of frontal and sideways collisions. For cyclist speeds ranging from 10 to 30 km/h and car speeds from 20 to 50 km/h, HIC values range from 200 up to 2500. Maximum change in head rotational velocity ranges from 20 to 60 rad/s and peak rotational acceleration from 4500 to 22000 rad/s². In general, sideways impacts lead to higher values for all head injury criteria. The influence of car speed on the head injury criteria values is larger in the sideways collision cases when compared to the frontal case. On the contrary, cyclist speed has a larger influence in the frontal case. It is concluded that car speed is the most critical factor and traffic expert input is needed to calculate car speed at time of impact based on objective information. Next to car speed, the relative car-bicycle position needs to be established iteratively by matching modelled impact positions with those reported in medical files, eyewitness reports, police- and traffic expert reports.


    The evaluation process can be denoted as professional if the evaluated systems have substantial complexity and require professional domain expertise to specify the structure and parameters of Logic Scoring of Preference (LSP) evaluation criteria. Elementary attribute criteria generate attribute suitability scores for all attributes of an evaluated object. The chapter focuses on strategic decision, techniques, and tools that are necessary in the process of professional development of complex LSP criteria and their aggregation structures. Two basic processes that are used for tuning and justification of complex criteria are sensitivity analysis and tradeoff analysis. The chapter presents basic design rules for logic aggregation structures used in LSP criteria. It also presents the optimum pricing problem where the cost/suitability analysis is performed from both the buyer's and seller's standpoint. The chapter provides a short summary of existing software, and an outline of the LSP method. The LSP software technology is designed to support different categories of users.

  • Design of a Winston Cup Chassis for Torsional Stiffness (983053)

    Race teams are interested in understanding the influence of the various structural members on the torsional stiffness of a NASCAR Winston Cup race car chassis. In this work we identify the sensitivity of individual structural members on the torsional stiffness of a baseline chassis. A high sensitivity value indicates a strong influence on the torsional stiffness of the overall chassis. Results from the sensitivity analysis are used as a guide to modify the baseline chassis with the goal of increased torsional stiffness with minimum increase in weight and low center-of-gravity placement. The torsional stiffness of the chassis with various combinations of added members in the front clip area, engine bay, roof area, front window and the area behind the roll cage was predicted using finite element analysis. Torsional stiffness increases and weight from several competing chassis designs are reported. Twist angle and the rate of change in twist angle under torsion is calculated at several locations along the frame. With strategic placement of structural members to a baseline chassis, the torsional stiffness can be more than tripled with only a 40 lb increase in weight.

  • Practical Considerations and Design Examples

    This chapter aims to bridge the gap between theory and practical realization of microwave filters and multiplexing networks. It provides examples that cover system considerations and tradeoffs in the development of specifications for filter networks. The chapter addresses the constraints imposed by the operating environment, technology limitations, and manufacturing tolerances. These constraints are captured by invoking the concept of equivalent linear frequency drift (ELFD). The chapter also provides examples that deal with filter design and synthesis techniques. It describes simple examples to help understand the design methodology of the two most widely used multiplexers, the circulator‐coupled configuration and the manifold coupled design. The chapter explains examples related to high‐power requirements for filters and multiplexers in space and terrestrial environment. It concludes with an overview of electromagnetic (EM)‐based tolerance and sensitivity analysis in filter design.
