The rate of fatalities in vehicle-to-pedestrian crashes is high with respect to the frequency of occurrence. In recent years, a pedestrian safety system, which consists of a pop-up hood and a pedestrian airbag, was developed to reduce pedestrian injuries. However, the effects of the system and a...
In this article, a power management scheme for a plug-in power-split hybrid electric vehicle is designed on the basis of the model predictive control concept of charge depletion plus charge sustenance strategy and the blended-mode strategy. The commands of model predictive control are applied to...
The effect of spray–flat-wall interaction on the diesel combustion characteristics in a constant-volume vessel was investigated. A flat wall was fixed perpendicular to the nozzle hole axis. Three injection pressures of 100 MPa, 150 MPa and 200 MPa and a single nozzle hole with a diameter of...
In the current work the yawing and side-slip motion of a two-mass vehicle is studied. The vehicle is divided into an upper rigid mass and a lower rigid mass pivoted on one another on a vertical axis through the centre of mass. The vehicle body constitutes the upper rigid body, and the suspension...
A rear-end collision is one of the most frequent accidents occurring on roadways. In this paper, a model-based longitudinal collision avoidance algorithm is developed for heavy commercial road vehicles to avoid rear-end collisions. This paper focuses on the inclusion of the dynamics of the...
In this study, a motor torque control algorithm for improving the stability of an in-wheel electric vehicle is proposed. The longitudinal and normal forces acting on the tyre were estimated with the wheel speed, the vehicle acceleration and the motor torque, and a road friction coefficient...
This study describes the effects of the fuel injection angle and the multiple-injection strategies on the combustion, the emissions and the performance characteristics in a common-rail diesel engine. To conduct this investigation, a single-cylinder diesel engine with four valves was used, and...
Traffic fatalities and injuries continue to demand the attention of researchers and governments across the world as they remain significant factors in public health and safety. Enhanced legislature, together with vehicle and roadway technology, has helped to reduce the impact of traffic crashes...
A study was conducted to investigate the microstructure and the mechanical properties of dissimilar resistance spot welds between steel sheets of DP600 and DP1000 using different welding currents for automotive applications. Microstructural characterization, microhardness tests and tensile shear...
This paper presents how injector nozzle distributions and the combustion chamber geometry affect the emission characteristics of diesel engines. The number of nozzle holes was increased from seven to 12 by a using double-row nozzle distribution to enhance the air–fuel mixing and the spatial...
