Automotive Body Structures Fundamentals

Emphasis is on vehicle design, engineering, materials and manufac-turing for BIW configurations for strength, stiffness, NVH, energy absorption, crashworthiness – structure, sensors and restraints; advanced technologies for active intervention and accident avoid-ance; current vehicle design for crashworthiness – “passive” safety. For light-weight structure design emphasis on - All Aluminum Vehicle (AIV), Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) and subsystems – Closures.

Who should attend:

Product, Design, Materials, Manufacturing Engineers, and Managers. This course would be particularly beneficial to all entry level automotive engineers and has been designed to provide an overview of fundamentals of automotive body structures and would also serve as a refresher course for experienced engineers and managers.

Prerequisites:

Undergraduate/Graduate degrees in mathematics, physics, and engineering and/or equivalent experience in the automotive engineering fields.

Attendees Receive:

All attendees will receive lecture materials and homework worksheets. Breakfasts, coffee breaks and lunches will be provided.

Certification/Recognition:

Global Automotive Management Council would offer certificate to the attendees who successfully complete all course requirements. All successful candidates will be recognized at a special dinner ceremony.

Fundamentals and Advances in Gasoline Direct Injection Engines

The quest for an even more efficient, smarter, and environmentally-cleaner liquid-fueled spark-ignited (SI) reciprocating engine continues and in this effort the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI)  SI engines have an important and special place on the road.  It is estimated that in 2018 nearly half of all new cars and light duty trucks have GDI engines and the forecast suggests an increase to about 65% in five years. Hence,  a firm understanding of the fundamentals, advances, and issues determining the future trends in research and product development is an important prerequisite for success and competitive advantage in application and continued improvement of this technology.  This course is designed to provide foundational understanding of the direct injection strategy, both from the homogeneous and stratified combustion perspectives, and offer a synopsis of advances in the field. The emphasis  here is on mixture preparation, combustion, and emission of pollutants from the engine.

Who should attend:

Product, Design, Materials, Manufacturing Engineers, and Managers. This course would be particularly beneficial to all entry level automotive engineers and has been designed to provide an overview of fundamentals of automotive powertrain structures and would also serve as a refresher course for experienced engineers and managers.

Prerequisites:

Undergraduate/Graduate degrees in mathematics, physics, and engineering and/or equivalent experience in the automotive engineering fields.

Attendees Receive:

All attendees will receive lecture materials and homework worksheets. Breakfasts, coffee breaks and lunches will be provided.

Certification/Recognition:

Global Automotive Management Council would offer certificate to the attendees who successfully complete all course requirements. All successful candidates will be recognized at a special dinner ceremony.
