In the 2013 contest session, it was proposed to store some kinetic energy in the rotor of the generator of a series-parallel hybrid powertrain (Prius Type), with or without a coupled flywheel. 150 KJ, roughly the vehicle kinetic energy at 50 Km/h,
The challenge areas are pertaining to Puncture of tyre in a vehicle, need of wheel balancing by use of carcinogenic material Lead, leakage of air/nitrogen from tyre resulting in low fuel efficiency and local overheating of tyre causing tyre bursts and decrease in tyre life.
Automated Highway System with private cars driven automatically through guided pathway has a clear benefit of offering convenience, reducing door-to-door transit times and better utilization of the transportation system. Also with the precision of automation,
The Radially Asymmetric Dual Arc (RADA) Profile is a novel geometric configuration for the Elastomer of a Torsional Vibration Damper (TVD) that enhances the TVD’s fatigue-life while simultaneously improving the axial and radial run-outs between the two metallic components utilized therein.
