Simulating cab noise and vibration
Researchers at kubota and Doshisha University have established a
prediction method for the engine-idling state using statistical
Manufacturing cost estimating
Caterpillar's ACT Group uses Micro Estimating Systems'
computer-aided estimating program to increase efficiency and
decrease operating costs in powder-metal part manufacturing.
In search of greener pastures
Agricultural OEMs are looking at the total life cycle to develop
more environmentally conscious products and processes.
Emissions and lubrication
More stringent diesel emissions legislation is placing an increased
burden on engine lubricant in the form of soot loading.
Operator station innovations
Off-highway engineers work hard to provide comfort, ease of
operation, and reliability to users. As an added challenge, they
must design for operators who can spend an entire day working hard
in their cab.
Major developments in internet-based technologies are profoundly
changing the engineering/design process, revolutionizing the way
OEMs and suppliers do business, and speeding the industry's
FEA simulation of an electrohydraulic
Researchers from the Milwaukee School of Engineering provide an
accurate model of a typical magentic actuator
Predicting injury in forklift upsets
Researchers from the Biomechanics Institute present test results
that demonstrate operators can prevent ejection and injury from a
forklift if they are lap-belted and have either a winged seat or
Making virtual vehicle design a reality
A new virtual design approach for commercial vehicle concepts
allows for purposeful design and integration of new concepts and
technologies on the component level in an existing product
portfolio, while not neglecting the need for standardization and
