  • Failure analysis of leaf spring suspension system for heavy load truck
           vehicle
    • Authors: M. Nataraj, S. Thillikkani
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: The failure of leaf spring suspension system used in heavy load truck vehicle TATA LPT 1613TCIC model was investigated in the research reported in this paper. In order to analyse the variations in the chemical composition, micro-structural analysis along with material specification has been performed. The failed leaf spring fractured part was analysed by using a visual inspection technique and scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis. Based on the fractography study, it was inferred that the failure of the fractured part was due to the cyclic load. This load lead to fatigue growth on leaf spring of the model truck vehicle. Then finite element analysis of leaf spring was carried out to find out the root cause of the leaf spring suspension system. The failure parameters were also optimised for the truck vehicle during safe operation on the road. The fatigue life of the proposed leaf spring has increased in comparison with the existing model lifecycles.

  • Automotive industry application of aluminium-based hybrid metal matrix
           composite
    • Authors: P. Ramesh, M. Nataraj
      Pages: 18 - 32
      Abstract: Monolithic materials cannot fulfil the demands for the advanced industrial requirements. Therefore, composite materials which possess the combined properties of different constituents are developed. In this experimental work, Al 6061 was used as matrix and Al<SUB align="right">2O<SUB align="right">3, SiC and E glass short fibres were used as the reinforcement material. The composite specimen is fabricated through stir casting by varying the weight percentage of reinforcements and matrix materials. The investigation concluded that the load and sliding speed are expanded to improve the wear rate, and developing the sliding distance the wear rate is decreased. The different compositions of the materials are tested by using Pin on Disc apparatus to find the wear rate. From the experimental results the least wear rate is obtained in the composition (C<SUB align="right">4) of 70% wt of Al 6061, 15% wt of Al<SUB align="right">2O<SUB align="right">3, 9% wt of SiC and 6% wt of E glass short fibre.

  • Design and implementation of 31 level asymmetrical cascaded MLI with DC-DC
           flyback converter for photovoltaic system using P&O technique for electric
           traction application
    • Authors: J. Gowri Shankar, J. Belwin Edward
      Pages: 33 - 64
      Abstract: This paper proposes a design and implementation of 31-Level MLI (Multi-Level Inverter) which is supplied from a single solar panel with multioutput flyback converter for transformer-less railway traction drive. The multioutput flyback converter provides isolation for the circuit and also produces four different supply voltages based on the transformer turns ratio. In asymmetrical MLI the DC source magnitudes are unequal and it is designed with binary form of voltage such as 15Vdc, 30Vdc, 60Vdc and 120Vdc. In this proposed technique, we are using a single solar panel and single fly back converter, from this four DC output voltages are obtained in the ratio of 1 : 2 : 4 : 8. Our proposed technique requires fewer switches, i.e., seven switches for more levels, i.e., 31 levels, and it also gives less total harmonic distortion (THD). The results are verified in MATLAB, PROTEUS and realtime system using TMS320F2802 and ATMEGA328.

  • Test research on the adhesive and tractive performance of a wheeled
           tractor
    • Authors: Zhen Zhu, Long Chen, Changgao Xia, Yingfeng Cai
      Pages: 65 - 82
      Abstract: In order to improve the adhesive and tractive performance of a wheeled tractor, the test schemes for the research on the influencing factors of adhesive and tractive performance are designed.The maximum tyre driving force has a linear relation with the vertical load on wheel axis, the tyre deformation displacement increases with increasing tyre driving force. The tyre adhesive performance can be improved with the increase of vertical load and the decrease of tyre pressure, the adhesive and tractive performance on the asphalt road is superior to that on the soil road. Plough resistance, resistance torque and slip coefficient increase with plough depth. When plough depth increases, vibration amplitude decreases, and vibration frequency basically remains unchanged. When slip coefficient is less than 0.05, the drawbar pull is proportional to slip coefficient; when slip coefficient is greater than 0.05, the drawbar pull remains nearly constant.

  • Research on application of artificial intelligence model in automobile
           machinery control system
    • Authors: Zhen Zhu, Long Chen, Changgao Xia, Yingfeng Cai
      Pages: 83 - 96
      Abstract: To improve the kinematics and ride comfort of the vehicle suspension system, this paper combines the ADAMS software with the artificial intelligence optimisation algorithm to simulate and optimise the suspension system of a certain type of off-road vehicle. The front suspension of a 1/2 virtual prototype model is established in ADAMS/view, and the kinematics analysis of the prototype model is made. In order to improve the kinematics characteristics of the front suspension, the genetic algorithm and the immune algorithm are used to optimise the positioning parameters of the front suspension based on the kinematics analysis of the suspension. The dynamic model of the whole vehicle is established in ADAMS/view, and the vehicle ride comfort is simulated and calculated.

  • Response surface methodology based on polyamide incorporated with
           biolubricant for optimisation of operating parameters in heavy vehicles
    • Authors: J. Narendran, T. Karthikeyan
      Pages: 97 - 125
      Abstract: In this paper, the coefficient of friction (COF) and wear of pure and filled polyamide incorporated with and without bio lubrication prediction models based on response surface methodology (RSM) are exhibited in heavy vehicles. A special purpose vehicle is a motor vehicle or trailer, other than an agricultural vehicle or a tow truck, built for a purpose other than carrying goods, or a concrete pump or fire truck (both of which carry water). Examples of a special purpose vehicle include a mobile crane, a concrete pump, drill rig or fire truck. The models were developed based on three-level design of experiments conducted on pure polyamide such as Polyamide6, Polyamide66 and filled polyamide like Polyamide66 filled with glass fibre 30 and Polyamide66 filled with molybdenum disulfide, considering with load, speed and sliding distance as process parameters. Numerical models of second order RSM clearly show that the prediction capabilities of response surface methodology models are more desirable. This implementation identifies the insignificant main factors and contact factors or insignificant quadratic expressions in the model and in this manner can diminish the complexity of the problem.

  • Study on vehicle driving state and parameters estimation based on triple
           cubature Kalman filter
    • Authors: Gang Li, Dong-sheng Fan, Ye Wang, Rui-chun Xie
      Pages: 126 - 144
      Abstract: For the problem of vehicle driving state and parameters estimation in the process of vehicle driving, the vehicle state and parameters estimation algorithms are studied based on the triple cubature Kalman filter. The nonlinear three degrees of freedom model with Dugoff tyre model is established. The vehicle driving state estimator, road adhesion coefficient estimator and vehicle parameters estimator are designed based on the theory of triple cubature Kalman filter. To estimate the driving state and parameters accurately, the three estimators connect to each other in the process of the estimation and form a closed-loop feedback in real time. The estimation algorithms are verified based on the driving simulator. The serpentine docking road conditions with changing speed are selected to verify the estimation algorithms based on the driving simulator in-loop simulation test. The experiments' results show that the vehicle driving state and parameters are estimated accurately by the estimation algorithms.

  • RMF based target position estimation and collision probability forecasting
           technique in freeway junctions
    • Authors: Sathiya Pappan, P. Anandhakumar
      Pages: 145 - 163
      Abstract: Collision between vehicles and pedestrians leads to brutal loss of life and assets on Indian roads. Accidents happen due to individual's negligence and misjudgement of the speed of vehicles at freeway junctions. In this paper, a novel feature extraction technique is used for estimating the target position and to update the trajectory information. A vision-based technique is incorporated to acquire the target information that is a simple and cost-effective method to examine the target's current position. Moreover, a distribution-based evaluation method is introduced to calculate the degree of conflict and avoid crashes by alerting the target. The experimental results of the proposed technique reveal an improved performance of 9% in detection rate for public datasets over the existing Gaussian mixture model (GMM) method. The proposed probabilistic collision avoidance system could be implemented on highways to reduce the accidents to a greater extent.

  • A high strength and wear resisting AA5083 alloy for armoured vehicle
           applications: structure property correlation
    • Authors: T. Venugopal, P. Chandramohan
      Pages: 164 - 179
      Abstract: An alloy with high strength is constantly desired without increasing the weight to enhance the performance of armoured vehicles. In this study, an ultra-fine grain (UFG) structured AA-5083 aluminium alloy, developed using equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) under route RA, is employed to study its microstructural evolution and mechanical behaviour. The ECAPed AA-5083 alloy exhibits considerable microstructural refinement, and its influence is corroborated with the hardness, compression and wear behaviour of the base alloy. A significant grain size reduction is observed in both extrusion and transverse direction of processed AA-5083 alloy compared with base alloy. The ECAPed AA-5083 alloy exhibits higher compressive strength and hardness values than its base alloy. The wear studies have been performed using Taguchi L9 orthogonal array, to understand the influence of grain size on the wear behaviour and a superior wear resistance was found in the extrusion direction of ECAPed AA-5083 alloy.

  • Influence of shock absorber damping rates on the fatigue of anti-roll bars
           of a commercial vehicle
    • Authors: Arthur Larocca, Mina Youssef, Anne Gadbois, Dragos Zamfir, Pablo Kubo
      Pages: 180 - 201
      Abstract: Within the framework of an integrated product development, the main objective of this study is to assess the influence of shock absorber damping rates on the fatigue of anti-roll bars of a commercial vehicle. In this regard, force and displacement data have been collected in a durability test track with an instrumented bus on curb weight (CW) and gross axle weight rating (GAWR). Based on the theory of fatigue damage accumulation, the durability of each anti-roll bar of a bus (front and rear suspension) was assessed for three different shock absorber damping rates. Statistical significance between different shock absorbers has been identified for both bars on both loading conditions. The results pointed out that, in some cases, a softer damper could reduce by almost half the fatigue life of an anti-roll bar when compared to the same bar with stiffer dampers.

  • Dynamic modelling of a railway wheelset based on Kane's method
    • Authors: Arthur Larocca, Mina Youssef, Anne Gadbois, Dragos Zamfir, Pablo Kubo
      Pages: 202 - 226
      Abstract: This study applies Kane's method to generate the equations of motion for a railway wheelset moving on a tangent track at a constant speed. Since the wheel and rail close contact conditions are used to obtain two nonholonomic constraint equations, the lateral vibration of the wheelset can be proven as a nonholonomic system possessing two degrees of freedom. Moreover, using Kane's approach to derive the linearised equations, we can take advantage of bypassing the full nonlinear equations and getting two equations with dynamic decoupling. When the set of equations in this work is compared with those in the literature, we found that two gyroscopic effect terms exist and yaw gravitational stiffness disappears, so that the critical speeds calculated in this work are always lower than those in the literature for the same numerical cases. At last, the contact conditions along with the creepages between wheels and rails can be directly expressed in terms of generalised speeds by using Kane's method. It shows that Kane's method focuses on motions rather than on configurations.

  • Integrated application of network traffic and intelligent driver models in
           
    • Authors: Tamás Péter, Ferenc Szauter, Zoltán Rózsás, István Lakatos
      Pages: 227 - 245
      Abstract: The aim of the research is to develop a laboratory model-based diagnostic procedure that performs tests of the motion processes of autonomous electric vehicles in a particular city, on a transport network or track. The test consists of a laboratory based generation of the corresponding speed and steering angle signals, being in accordance with real driving and traffic conditions, which are also used in the test procedure. The procedure takes into account the real trajectory tracking process as well (Péter and Lakatos, 2017).
