Instron offers the AVE 2 second-generation advanced video extensometer, using patented measurement technology in an accurate noncontacting strain measurement device that conforms to rigorous testing standards. The fully integrated device adapts to the normal fluctuations of environmental conditions and can be adapted to any testing machine that uses a ±10 V analog input. Designed to reduce errors from thermal and lighting variations common in most labs, the AVE 2 uses a real-time 490-Hz data rate while achieving 1 µm accuracy. The versatility allows for testing under multiple environmental conditions and can be used for advanced strain measurement with digital image correlation. The AVE 2 measures both modulus and strain-to-failure of most materials including plastics, metals, composites, textiles, films, and bio-materials.

Christopher Grundler, the Director of OTAQ for the U.S. EPA, answered questions about Phase 2 rule-making for heavy trucks, global harmonization of emissions regulations, and his outlook for a new national NOx standard. Grundler will be the featured speaker on opening day of the SAE 2017 Government/Industry Meeting taking place January 25-27 in Washington D.C.
Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
With the new SCALEXIO LabBox, dSPACE offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop tests.
The accuracy of an NO gas sensor (the primary component of NOx) can be compromised when exposed to ambient temperatures above 86°F (30°C) and significantly more so above 104°F (40°C).
