The 310/410 Series of 1/8-inch ported, 3- and 4-way, direct-acting solenoid valves are for use in pneumatic applications. Valves of the same series can be mounted in-line or on a mounting base, and 3- or 4-way valves can be combined or stacked and subbase assemblies. The short-stroke balanced poppet design permits rapid cycling, requires no lubrication, and is more tolerant of impurities in the air system, ensuring positive sealing.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
