As national priorities have been focused both on reducing fuel consumption and improving air quality, attention has increased on reducing emissions from many types of vehicles, including light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty diesel-powered vehicles. Meeting the recently promulgated (and proposed) emission standards and simultaneously increasing fuel economy will pose especially difficult challenges for diesel-powered vehicles and will require the development of new emission-reduction technologies. In response to a request from the director of OHVT, the National Research Council formed the Committee on Review of DOE's Office of Heavy Vehicle Technologies to conduct a broad, independent review of its research and development (R&D) activities.

Das Bremsenhandbuch ist seit 1936 anerkannter Ratgeber für Fragen rund um das Thema Fahrzeugbremsen. In seiner neuesten Ausgabe erscheint es in der fachlich renommierten Reihe ATZ/MTZ-Fachbuch und wird von Prof. Breuer, TU Darmstadt, und Professor Bill, FHTW Berlin, herausgegeben. Mit diesem Schritt ist auch die inhaltliche Erweiterung des Konzeptes verbunden, das nun den gesamten Bereich aller Fahrzeugbremsen abdeckt für: Pkw, Nutzfahrzeuge, Motorräder, Flugzeuge bis hin zu Rennfahrzeugen. Dabei werden die fahrmechanischen, physikalischen und gesetzlichen Grundlagen genauso dargestellt wie die Grundlagen der Auslegung oder neueste Entwicklungen im Bereich der Mechatronik. Damit ist es das einzige in deutscher Sprache erhältliche Fachbuch, das diesen sicherheitsrelevanten Bereich der Fahrzeugtechnik fachwissenschaftlich fundiert und gleichzeitig praxisorientiert darstellt. Dafür sorgen nicht zuletzt mehr als 40 Autoren aus Hochschulen, Automobil- und -Zulieferindustrie. Die zweite Auflage des ATZ/MTZ-Fachbuchs enthält im Bereich Nutzfahrzeugbremsen ein neues Kapitel über Anhängerbremsen.

Trotz aller Unterstützung durch elektronische Steuerungs- und Regelsysteme kommen Pkw-Fahrwerke der neuesten Generation nicht ohne die konventionellen Fahrwerkelemente aus. Mit Blick auf die Fahrdynamik werden in diesem Band die konventionellen Elemente und deren Zusammenwirken mit mechatronischen Systemen dargestellt. Dabei werden zunächst Grundlagen und Auslegung, danach in besonders praxisnaher Darstellung die Fahrdynamik beschrieben. Es folgen ausführliche Beschreibung und Erläuterung der modernen Komponenten. Ein eigener Abschnitt widmet sich den Achsen und Prozessen für die Achsenentwicklung.

Exposure to noise at home, at work, while traveling, and during leisure activities is a fact of life for all Americans. At times noise can be loud enough to damage hearing, and at lower levels it can disrupt normal living, affect sleep patterns, affect our ability to concentrate at work, interfere with outdoor recreational activities, and, in some cases, interfere with communications and even cause accidents. Clearly, exposure to excessive noise can affect our quality of life. As the population of the United States and, indeed, the world increases and developing countries become more industrialized, problems of noise are likely to become more pervasive and lower the quality of life for everyone. Efforts to manage noise exposures, to design quieter buildings, products, equipment, and transportation vehicles, and to provide a regulatory environment that facilitates adequate, cost-effective, sustainable noise controls require our immediate attention. Technology for a Quieter America looks at the most commonly identified sources of noise, how they are characterized, and efforts that have been made to reduce noise emissions and experiences. The book also reviews the standards and regulations that govern noise levels and the federal, state, and local agencies that regulate noise for the benefit, safety, and wellness of society at large. In addition, it presents the cost-benefit trade-offs between efforts to mitigate noise and the improvements they achieve, information sources available to the public on the dimensions of noise problems and their mitigation, and the need to educate professionals who can deal with these issues. Noise emissions are an issue in industry, in communities, in buildings, and during leisure activities. As such, Technology for a Quieter America will appeal to a wide range of stakeholders: the engineering community; the public; government at the federal, state, and local levels; private industry; labor unions; and nonprofit organizations. Implementation of the recommendations in Technology for a Quieter America will result in reduction of the noise levels to which Americans are exposed and will improve the ability of American industry to compete in world markets paying increasing attention to the noise emissions of products.

The 21st Century Truck Partnership (21CTP), a cooperative research and development partnership formed by four federal agencies with 15 industrial partners, was launched in the year 2000 with high hopes that it would dramatically advance the technologies used in trucks and buses, yielding a cleaner, safer, more efficient generation of vehicles. Review of the 21st Century Truck Partnership critically examines and comments on the overall adequacy and balance of the 21CTP. The book reviews how well the program has accomplished its goals, evaluates progress in the program, and makes recommendations to improve the likelihood of the Partnership meeting its goals. Key recommendations of the book include that the 21CTP should be continued, but the future program should be revised and better balanced. A clearer goal setting strategy should be developed, and the goals should be clearly stated in measurable engineering terms and reviewed periodically so as to be based on the available funds.
