About this product
- DescriptionThe overall goal of vehicle design is to make a robust and reliable product that meets the demands of the customers and this book treats the topic of analysing and describing customer loads with respect to durability. Guide to Load Analysis for Vehicle and Durability Engineering supplies a variety of methods for load analysis and also explains their proper use in view of the vehicle design process. In Part I, Overview, there are two chapters presenting the scope of the book as well as providing an introduction to the subject. Part II, Methods for Load Analysis, describes useful methods and indicates how and when they should be used. Part III, Load Analysis in view of the Vehicle Design Process, offers strategies for the evaluation of customer loads, in particular characterization of customer populations, which leads to the derivation of design loads, and finally to the verification of systems and components. Key features: Is a comprehensive collection of methods for load analysis, vehicle dynamics and statistics Combines standard load data analysis methods with statistical aspects on deriving test loads from surveys of customer usage Sets the methods used in the framework of system dynamics and response, and derives recommendations for the application of methods in engineering practice Presents a reliability design methodology based on statistical evaluation of component strength and customers loads Includes case studies and illustrative examples that translate the theory into engineering practice Developed in cooperation with six European truck manufacturers (DAF, Daimler, Iveco, MAN, Scania and Volvo) to meet the needs of industry, Guide to Load Analysis for Vehicle and Durability Engineering provides an understanding of the current methods in load analysis and will inspire the incorporation of new techniques in the design and test processes.
- Author BiographyPar Johannesson received his PhD in Mathematical Statistics in 1999 at Lund Institute of Technology, Sweden, with a thesis on statistical load analysis for fatigue. During 2000 and 2001 he had a position as PostDoc at Mathematical Statistics, Chalmers within a joint project with PSA Peugeot Citroen, where he stayed one year at the Division of Automotive Research and Innovations in Paris. From 2002 to 2010 he was an applied researcher at the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research Centre for Industrial Mathematics in Goteborg, and in 2010 he was a guest researcher at Chalmers. He is currently working as a research engineer at SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, mainly within industrial and research projects on statistical methods for load analysis, reliability and fatigue. Michael Speckert received his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Kaiserslautern in 1990. From 1991 to 1993 he worked at TECMATH in the human modelling department on optimization algorithms. From 1993 to 2004 he worked at TECMATH and LMS in the departments for load data analysis and fatigue life estimation in the area of method as well as software development. Since 2004 he works at the department for Dynamics and Durability at Fraunhofer ITWM as an applied researcher. His main working areas are statistical and fatigue oriented load data analysis and multi body simulation techniques.
