Example text

Total change in vehicle velocity during the crash, for example, can be used to estimate the maximum occupant injury potential. This information is needed early in a crash, to determine severity and appropriate deployment. Due to the filtering effect of the vehicle structure during a crash event, the total delta velocity may not always be established early enough with a single point sensor. To support the crash severity algorithm in the SDM, an accelerometer-based sensor located in the crush-zone of the,car could be used.

With vehicle demands for greater electrical outputs the demands on alternators has increased. Alternator manufacturers are developing water cooled alternators which have higher outputs and are less noisy than their air cooled predecessors, the authors point out. 2 litre HSDI engine is shown in Figure 15. The air conditioning compressor is mounted at the front of the engine with its clutch being driven directly from the crankshaft. A belt from the crankshaft SOHC - Finger DOHC-Direct Attack OHV - Pushrod/Rocker DOHC - Finger POWERTRAIN/CHASSIS SYSTEMS pulley would drive a water cooled alternator, also front-mounted.

In terms of upper legform impact, for a car with bonnet leading edge height of about 700 mm the depth of crush required would be 110 mm for a typical 100 mm bumper lead. At 900 mm bonnet leading edge height the crush depth requirement increases to 210 mm under the specified impact loading. The limit on bending moment also means that the contact force on the impactor must not be concentrated at one point, requiring generously contoured front ends. Usually the existing heavy outer bonnet reinforcing frame should be weakened and moved slightly backwards so as to allow easier deformation of the leading edge.
