The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International is planning a Commercial Vehicle Braking Systems Seminar. It will be held Aug 22-24, 2005, and Dec 12-14, 2005, at its Troy MI headquarters.

This seminar focuses on medium-duty hydraulic brake systems and heavy-duty air brake systems and how both systems' performance can be predicted, maintained, and optimized. The function and application of the major brake system components will be explained, and attendees will discover how brakes, tires, and roadways interact as a system. Federal braking regulations for both hydraulic and air brake vehicles will also be covered. Participants will receive the text, Commercial Vehicle Braking Systems: Air Brakes, ABS and Beyond, written by the instructor, Leonard Buckman.

The seminar is designed for engineers and technicians involved in design, development, and testing of heavy vehicle brakes. Fleet personnel involved with safety and brake system specification and maintenance, driver-trainers, and truck accident investigators will also find this course of value.

The fee to attend is $1,165 for SAE members; non-members pay $1,265. To register, access www.sae.org/seminarinfo.htm; phone 877-606-7323 (United States and Canada only) or 724-776-4970; or e-mail [email protected].
