Fatigue life prediction of rubber bushing in vehicle system

1.Response analysis of rubber bushing under random excitation The Monte Carlo method is used to simulate the random excitation spectrum.

2. The fatigue life calculation of rubber bushing under random load can calculate the maximum strain energy density of rubber bushing under different excitation by using the response characteristics of rubber bushing under engine and road excitation obtained previously. The fatigue life of rubber bushing can be calculated under different load conditions. The maximum strain energy density U = 0.5134Nmm2 and the fatigue life N = 771371 were predicted under the excitation of engine speed n = 3000r/min and class B pavement, while U = 0.6893Nmm2, N, = 146774 under the excitation of engine speed n = 3000/min and class D pavement.(Thanks for the help and support of Chongqing Feilong Jiangli Auto Parts technical department.)

3. The test verification of the front sub-frame module is expensive because of the fatigue test of the whole vehicle system. Now the former sub-frame module is the research object, and the calculation results are compared with the test results. The front sub-frame is installed in accordance with its layout in the vehicle, and the six points connected with the body on the sub-frame are restrained. Sinusoidal excitation is carried out at the midpoint of the rear beam, and the maximum frequency which can be reached under the condition of satisfying the amplitude of the force is taken as the test frequency. The amplitude of force is 2.45.2kN. Fatigue failure criteria of rubber bushing: 2mm crack (equivalent to 20% of tensile coefficient).

      In the second quarter, 
      link hidden, please login to view’s electric vehicle sales in the United States again surpassed General Motors, ranking second in the U.S. electric vehicle market sales, and is on track to close the gap with Tesla.

      In the second quarter of this year, Ford sold 23,957 electric vehicles in the United States, a 61% increase from the same period last year, when total electric vehicle sales were 14,843. Meanwhile, Ford’s sales of hybrid vehicles rose 55 percent year over year. However, sales of internal combustion engine cars were down 5 per cent year on year.
      Ford saw double-digit sales growth for several of its electric vehicles. Sales of the Ford F-150 Lightning rose 76.9% to 7,902 units. While new competitors such as the Tesla Cybertruck and the Chevrolet Silverado EV RST have all hit the U.S. market, the Ford F-150 Lightning remained the best-selling electric truck in the U.S. in the first half of the year, with 15,654 units sold.
      Second-quarter sales of the Ford Mustang Mach-E were up 46.5% year-over-year to 12,645 units. In the first half of this year, 22,234 units of the Mustang Mach-E were delivered, the best performance ever. Sales of Ford’s E-Transit electric van continued to climb in the second quarter, rising 95.5 percent to 3,410 units from a year earlier.
      In the first half of 2024, Ford sold a total of 44,189 electric vehicles in the U.S. market, up 72% from 25,709 in the same period last year.
      Ford CEO Jim Farley said the automaker is shifting to smaller, more affordable electric vehicles to close the gap with Tesla and fend off competitors like BYD worldwide. Referring to Americans’ love affair with “larger vehicles,” Farley said smaller electric vehicles are “very important to driving the decarbonisation of American society and the development of electric vehicles.”
      Ford’s surge in electric vehicle sales in the US market is enough for it to continue to overtake General Motors. In the United States, GM delivered 21,930 electric vehicles in the second quarter, compared with 38,355 in the first half of 2024.
      GM is also ramping up production by introducing new models, with electric models such as the Chevrolet Blazer, Equinox and Silverado coming to the U.S. market. While Tesla did not give specific sales figures by region, its second-quarter electric vehicle sales worldwide exceeded expectations, delivering 443,956 electric vehicles and remaining №1 in the U.S. market.
      As competition in the U.S. electric vehicle market intensifies, other competitors, including Hyundai and Kia, also set new EV sales records in the second quarter. Hyundai Motor, for example, set a new sales record with its IONIQ 5 model, which sold 18,728 units in the first half of the year. Meanwhile, sales of Kia’s first three-row electric SUV, the EV9, are also climbing.

      link hidden, please login to view announced it will automate the company’s aftermarket products warehouse in Crossville, Tennessee, scheduled for 2025. The warehouse will be retrofitted with a AutoStore robotic storage and picking system. Encompassing a 22,000-square-foot space, the system will include approximately 24,000 storage locations. The fully automated AutoStore picking solution represents a significant leap forward in SKF’s logistics capabilities, allowing for increased efficiency and precision in order fulfillment, the company said. Innovative Technology and Strategic Consolidation
      The Crossville facility was chosen for this new technology due to its existing role as SKF’s main distribution center in the US. The location offers substantial logistical benefits as a Free Trade Zone (FTZ), according to SKF. Additionally, Crossville already accommodates the SKF Vehicle Aftermarket North America component warehouse and Kitting Center, making it an ideal location to centralize warehousing, kitting, and logistics operations under one roof, the company added.
      Anticipating Enhanced Customer Experience
      The consolidation of storage and the introduction of advanced automation technology at the Crossville warehouse will significantly improve
      link hidden, please login to view operational efficiency. The facility’s 24,000 storage locations will ensure that a wide variety of products are readily available, enabling faster response times and better service for SKF’s customers. SKF Vehicle Aftermarket Global President Philipp Herlein said: “This strategic investment highlights SKF’s commitment to excellence in logistics, ensuring that the company continues to meet the evolving needs of its customers. By improving delivery lead times and optimizing order fulfillment processes, SKF is poised to enhance customer satisfaction and maintain its position as a trusted partner in the industry.”

      link hidden, please login to viewreleased two new suspension bushing tool kits for on-vehicle R&I of single-wrap and double-wrap heavy-duty suspension bushings – Suspension Bushing Kit with Pump and Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit. Both tool kits replace worn-out, rusted and frozen heavy-duty suspension bushings faster and easier without risking heat or other damage by providing a 25-ton capacity, the company said. Each kit saves hours on each job by making quick work of Pivot and D-pin bushing R&I. OTC’s latest suspension bushing tool kits include:
      4247-FR Suspension Bushing Kit with Pump: Includes air/hydraulic pump, 25-ton hydraulic cylinder, hose with couplers, complete puller leg/plates and adapter set for double-wrap leaf springs.
      4254-FR Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit: For use with OTC service sets; 4247, 4275, 4261 or 4263 with 4106A 25-ton ram.
      OTC said each suspension bushing kit features Hendrickson rear suspensions, including Primaax EX, Comfort Air and FCCC V-Ride Pivot and D-Pin suspension bushings, and freightliner rear suspensions, including double and single-wrapped FAS II Airliner rear suspension bushings. Both also include centering adapters to align tool and bushing for clean installation. Both are available through OTC distribution partners and resellers.
