Simulation Study on the Thin-walled Tube Structure of a Vehicle Simulator Crash Testing Equipment
A kind of crash energy absorption structure adopted by vehicle simulator crash testing equipment based on mechanical energy
storage was studied. Dynamic explicit finite element simulation was achieved for thin-walled tube structure under different conditions of
section shape, thickness and inducement groove style. Crash energy absorption property of the structure was obtained. After optimization,
a reasonable structure was given which can meet current vehicle crash regulation. And the optimized structure can be adopted in vehicle
simulator, which can increase the practicability of the testing
thin-walled tube structure, crash energy absorption, deceleration, finite element simulation
A Comprehensive Method of Fault Detection and Isolation Based On Testability Modeling Data
Testability modeling is a commonly used method in
testability design and analysis of system. A dependency matrix will be
obtained from testability modeling, and we will give a quantitative
evaluation about fault detection and isolation.
Based on the dependency matrix, we can obtain the diagnosis tree.
The tree provides the procedures of the fault detection and isolation.
But the dependency matrix usually includes built-in test (BIT) and
manual test in fact. BIT runs the test automatically and is not limited
by the procedures. The method above cannot give a more efficient
diagnosis and use the advantages of the BIT.
A Comprehensive method of fault detection and isolation is
proposed. This method combines the advantages of the BIT and
Manual test by splitting the matrix. The result of the case study shows
that the method is effective.
