In order to reduce both the weight of vehicles and the damage of occupants in a crash event simultaneously, it is necessary to perform a multi-objective optimization of the automotive energy absorbing components. In this paper, axial impact crushing behavior of the aluminum foam-filled thin-walled tubes are studied by the finite element method using commercial software ABAQUS. Comparison of the present simulation results with the results of the experiments reported in the previous works indicated the validity of the numerical analyses. A meta-model based on the feed-forward artificial neural networks are then obtained for modeling of both the absorbed energy (E) and the peak crushing force (Fmax) with respect to design variables using those data obtained from the finite element modeling. Using such obtained neural network models, a modified multi-objective GA is used for the Pareto-based optimization of the aluminum foam-filled thinwalled tubes considering three conflicting objectives such as energy absorption, weight of structure, and peak crushing force.

Induction motors are the most commonly used in the traction industries and electric vehicles, due to their low primary cost, low maintenance costs, and good performance. Speed identification is needed for the induction motor drives. However, using of speed sensors in the induction motor drives is associated with problems such as, extra cost, reduced reliability, added mounting space, etc.. Therefore, many of the recent researches had been dedicated to sensor less induction motor drives. In the induction motor, the rotor speed is estimated using measured stator voltages and currents of the induction motor, as the sensor less drive. The rotor speed for sensor less induction motor drives can be estimated by various techniques, which is designed with respect to required accuracy and sensitivity against induction motor parameter variation. In this paper, comprehensive review of different induction motor speed estimation techniques for traction applications, their special features and advantages is presented.

This paper introduces a technique that relates the coefficients of the Magic Formula tire model to the physical properties of the tire. For this purpose, the tire model is developed by ABAQUS commercial software. The output of this model for the lateral tire force is validated by available tire information and then used to identify the tire force properties. The Magic Formula coefficients are obtained from the validated model by using nonlinear least square curve fitting and Genetic Algorithm techniques. The loading and physical properties of the tire such as the internal pressure, vertical load and tire rim diameter are changed and tire lateral forces for each case are obtained. These values are then used to fit to the magic formula tire model and the coefficients for each case are derived. Results show the existing relationships between the Magic Formula coefficients and the loading and the physical properties of the tire. In order to investigate the effectiveness of the method, different parameter values are selected and the lateral force for each case are obtained by using the estimated coefficients as well as with the simulation and the results of the two methods are shown to be very close. This proves the effectiveness and the accuracy of the proposed method.

With respect to the limitations of fossil energy resources, different types of electric vehicles (EVs) are developed as suitable alternatives. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery cells play an extremely important role in EVs due to their unique features. But they need a thermal management system (TMS) to maintain their surface temperature uniformity and avoid them from thermal runaways. In the current study a phase change material (PCM) based TMS is introduced and applied to provide a uniform temperature distribution on a Li-ion battery cell surface. This PCM based TMS declines the final maximum temperature difference to (1/5) and (2/3) at 1 C and 2 C discharge rate respectively.

Due to the increasing level of air pollution and the reduction of fossil fuels, the need for new technologies and alternative fuels is felt more than ever. Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are one of these technologies, which have been of great interest to the researchers due to the benefits of non-contamination, high efficiency, fast start-up, and high power density. The proper functioning of the fuel cell requires thermal management and water management within the cells. To this end, in this work, the effect of different parameters on the performance of PEM fuel cell was investigated. The results demonstrated that the performance of the cell increases with increasing the pressure in the low current densities, while in the high current density, performance decreases with increasing the pressure of the cell. Also, the study of the effect of relative humidity shows that increasing the relative humidity of the cathode does not have much effect on the performance of the cell while increasing the relative humidity of the anode improves the performance of the cell.
