Reducing the weight of a vehicle in racing can substantially improve the vehicle dynamics and general performance capabilities. More specifically, the reduction of the unsprung corner weight can provide noticeable performance gains in handling and responsiveness, leading to a quicker, more agile car due to a lower yawing moment of inertia. Unsprung weight reduction also improves the car’s ability to maintain contact between the tires and the road surface for a more consistent grip. In this project we identified the loads that act on the wheel rims according to the data collected from the sensors in the car’s ...


Balancing Trade-Offs In One-Stage Production With Processing Time Uncertainty, Jingjing You 2021 University of Kentucky

Balancing Trade-Offs In One-Stage Production With Processing Time Uncertainty, Jingjing You

Theses and Dissertations--Mechanical Engineering

Stochastic production scheduling faces three challenges, first the inconsistencies among key performance indicators (KPIs), second the trade-offs between the expected return and the risk for a portfolio of KPIs, and third the uncertainty in processing times. Based on two inconsistent KPIs of total completion time (TCT) and variance of completion times (VCT), we propose our trade-off balancing (ToB) heuristic for one-stage production scheduling. Through comprehensive case studies, we show that our ToB heuristic with preference =0.0:0.1:1.0 efficiently and effectively addresses the three challenges. Moreover, our trade-off balancing scheme can be generalized to balance a number ...

Mechanics Of The Solid-State Bonding Under Severe Thermomechanical Processes, Xue Wang 2020 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Mechanics Of The Solid-State Bonding Under Severe Thermomechanical Processes, Xue Wang

Doctoral Dissertations

Friction stir welding (FSW) has found increased applications in automotive and aerospace industries due to its advantages of solid-state bonding, no fusion and melting, and versatility in various working conditions and material combinations. The extent and quality of the solid-state bonding between workpieces in FSW is the ultimate outcome of their industrial applications. However, the relationship among processing parameters, material properties, and bonding extent and fidelity remains largely empirical, primarily because of the lack of the mechanistic understanding of (1) tool-workpiece frictional behavior, and (2) bonding formation and evolution.

In this dissertation, to study the underlying mechanism of tool-workpiece frictional ...


Vibration Behavior In Modulated Tool Path (Mtp) Turning, Ryan William Copenhaver 2020 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Vibration Behavior In Modulated Tool Path (Mtp) Turning, Ryan William Copenhaver

Doctoral Dissertations

This project studies the process dynamics and surface finish effects of modulated tool path (MTP) turning. In MTP turning, a small amplitude (typically less than 0.5 mm), low frequency oscillation (typically less than 10 Hz) is superimposed on the feed motion by the machine controller to intentionally segment the traditionally long, continuous chips. The basic science to be examined is the vibration behavior of this special case of interrupted cutting, which is not turning because the chip formation is intentionally discontinuous and is not milling because the time-dependent chip geometry is defined by the oscillatory feed motion, not the ...
