1. Gao, Pingping. Vehicle Safety Design Methods to Comply with Emerging International Standards.

Degree: MA, Mechanical, Automotive, and Materials Engineering, 2012, National Library of Canada

This research focuses on the development of a design methodology for vehicle safety design to comply with the different side impact crash regulations that are used around the world. The main differences of each side impact tests and potential influences on vehicle design were identified. Door intrusion velocity, door trim component stiffness and seat airbag were selected as three design variables. Sled test finite element models based on the Heidelberg buck sled test set-up were developed to investigate the sensitivity of three design factors to the occupant injury in both moving deformable barrier test and oblique pole test load conditions. Occupant injury response variations were assessed at different levels of the design factors. From the simulation results, for moving deformable barrier test, there is a balance between limiting the thorax injury and abdominal injury. For the Oblique pole test, the simulation results show that the padding system development may be more effective than the vehicle structure enhancement. Design guidelines that would enable vehicles to comply with different side impact tests were extracted based on the simulation results. Advisors/Committee Members: William Altenhof, Peter Frise.

2. WEI, WEI. Complexity management of vehicle wiring harnesses: An optimized model to analyse trade-offs between product and manufacturing costs.

Degree: MA, Mechanical, Automotive, and Materials Engineering, 2012, National Library of Canada

The large number of vehicle wiring harness variants during the design phase generates considerable complexity, which needs to be managed at the production level. The wiring harness design is usually optimized at the product level to minimize product costs. Issues related to the manufacturing processes are not considered. The aim of this research is to develop a cost model which includes product and manufacturing costs to define an optimum level between product variant complexity and material costs (with the focus on wiring harness complexity). The cost model consists of two parts, (i) the product cost and (ii) the manufacturing cost. Unlike product cost, which is relatively easy to obtain, the methodology for evaluating the manufacturing cost requires an in-depth analysis, which is done in this research. The trade-off cost model is first applied to a case study based on real production data to evaluate the potential benefits. Then, a MATLAB simulation is developed to simulate a new scenario for managing wiring harness complexity. The results showed that cost savings can be achieved by applying a trade-off strategy between the product cost and manufacturing cost dynamically according to the forecast data. The limitation of this research is using fixed manufacturing costs in the case study and the MATLAB simulation. For practical applications, the manufacturing cost should be a function of number of individual part numbers in the plant. The concepts and methodology developed in this research could be used not only on automotive wiring harnesses, but also on parts and materials which are expensive and have many variants that need to be managed during production. Advisors/Committee Members: Jill Urbanic, Peter Frise.

3. Baldizzone, Stefano. Performance and Fuel Economy Analysis of a Mild Hybrid Vehicle Equipped with Belt Starter Generator.

Degree: MA, Mechanical, Automotive, and Materials Engineering, 2012, National Library of Canada

This thesis focused on the study of a hybrid electric vehicle equipped with a belt starter generator, or BSG. With this system, the conventional starter and the alternator are replaced by one electric machine only, capable of cranking the engine, charging the batteries and supplying the on-board electric loads. These characteristics allow the introduction of new functionalities, including engine stop-start, regenerative braking, and electric assist. The purposes of the research were two: the assessment of the stop-start performance and the evaluation of the fuel consumption reduction that can be achieved with this system compared to a conventional vehicle. Simulink models of the powertrain were used to obtain the results, which were validated against experimental data from a start cart and a real proof-of-concept vehicle. The results illustrated the critical factors affecting the stop-start performance, and demonstrated that remarkable fuel savings can be obtained with the BSG, especially for city driving. Advisors/Committee Members: Peter Frise, Narayan Kar.
