In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to win your dream job and be the first in line for a promotion.
This publication begins with a basic introduction to human anatomy and injury terminology and concepts. The book then examines, by body region, the types of injuries which may occur in automotive collisions. Injury scaling is also discussed, including such techniques as the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), Glasgow Coma Scale (GSC), and Injury Priority Rating (IPR). Automotive Safety concludes with a discussion on the regulatory framework and biomechanical basis of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 208 and the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Chapters cover: Terminology Anatomy and Injury Injury Scaling Regulation and Testing. Well-illustrated, the book also includes an appendix that contains various safety laws and regulatory documents which are referred to in the text. An essential reference for all automotive safety professionals and an ideal resource for anyone needing a better understanding of this important topic.
Increasing demands on the output performance, exhaust emissions, and fuel consumption necessitate the development of a new generation of automotive engine functionality. This monograph is written by a long year developmental automotive engineer and offers a wide coverage of automotive engine control and estimation problems and its solutions. It addresses idle speed control, cylinder flow estimation, engine torque and friction estimation, engine misfire and CAM profile switching diagnostics, as well as engine knock detection. The book provides a wide and well structured collection of tools and new techniques useful for automotive engine control and estimation problems such as input estimation, composite adaptation, threshold detection adaptation, real-time algorithms, as well as the very important statistical techniques. It demonstrates the statistical detection of engine problems such as misfire or knock events and how it can be used to build a new generation of robust engine functionality. This book will be useful for practising automotive engineers, black belts working in the automotive industry as well as for lecturers and students since it provides a wide coverage of engine control and estimation problems, detailed and well structured descriptions of useful techniques in automotive applications and future trends and challenges in engine functionality.
