Some 10 years since being out of production (some might say even nearly 15 years if one considers the demise of the plane’s originator), the Dornier 328, known for its ability to function on “unimproved runways” and “being easy to maintain in third-world countries,” is going back into production under at least the partial guidance of Sierra Nevada Corp., with a 628 on the radar.
Developed in coordination with the Volvo Group, the D5 and D8 engines feature a newly designed platform with a larger displacement compared to previous versions. The new engines offer improved an engine block stiffness and higher torque at low speed.
A new dual input, dual output valve controller from Axiomatic is operational up to 125°C (257°F) and suitable for installation under the hood of mobile equipment, agricultural and heavy-duty industrial machines.
The AUTOSAR standard is all about improving embedded electronic systems in vehicles, but did you know that it also promotes the early testing of software code? The early testing and validation of embedded software reduces the number of ECU prototypes and additional test systems needed down the road, and it benefits the whole development process.
For the design process of the class of aircraft known as an efficient supersonic air vehicle, particular attention must be paid to the propulsion system design as a whole, including installation effects integrated into a vehicle performance model.
