  4. 4. Simulation driven design of timber bolster in fibre composite

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner; KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Marcus Ribbenstedt; Nick Salvati; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The primary objective of this thesis is to investigate a simulation and optimisation based methodology using fibre composite materials to lower the weight of timber bolsters. The timber bolsters secure the timber from falling off the truck during loading and transport. READ MORE

  5. 5. An Alternative Variable Valve Timing System for Heavy Duty Vehicles

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik; Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Mikael Eriksson; Daniel Olovsson; [2016]
    Keywords : Variable; Valve Timing; VVT; Cam phaser; Heavy Duty; Scania; Commercial Vehicles; GT-SUITE; Dynamic; On off valve; Product Development; Machine Element;

    Abstract : The ability to control engine valve timing has the potential to alter the engine performance over the entire operating range. The outcome of valve timing technology enables the possibility to increase efficiency, lowering emissions, increase engine torque, etc. One of the simplest ways to obtain a variable valve timing is to use cam phasers.
