In order to become expert or get command on any subject or work, one need to know the basic terminologies under the particular work as when we have our terminologies cleared and well defined, we can create approved terms which would be useable universally across an organization.
A common problem of terminology work is that it is considered less important by most of the people as well as poor understood by many students. But if we are the students of a particular course such as Automobile Engineering, then we should know all the basic terms related with it. Most of the automobile students do not have any idea of what the terminologies are all about or some are searching the particular term on the internet for sufficient explanation.
So it will be good for an upcoming automobile engineering student to know all the basic terms related to this field.
Here are some basic terminologies under automobile engineering which will be very helpful to an engineering aspirant.
- Active safety features: It refers to the feature that can interact with or controlled by the driver such as brakes, anti-lock braking system, manual seat belts and traction control.
- Aftermarket parts: These parts are made by the company other than the original equipment manufacturer as well as they can be used for replacing or repairing the autos. These parts are normally less expensive in comparison to the quality parts.
- Air bags: It is the gas-inflated cushion which can be employed at the time of impact as well as it can be designed in order to protect the upper body of the persons from making the direct contact with the vehicle’s interior component such as the steering column or dashboard rear seat along with side air bags etc.
- Air filtrations system: It is the system which can clean and smog, pollen, exhaust as well as odors out of the air. It can clean both interior circulated airs as well as that is coming from the outside.
- Anti-lock brake systems: It is the system that has been designed in order to preserve the ability of the driver for steering a car at the time of an emergency braking situation unlike conventional brakes that lock and steering control is lost.
- Automatic safety features: They are those features which are not under the control of the driver instead they can act in response to the programmed circumstances such as air bags and automatic seat harnesses.
- Backfire or Backfiring: When the fuel which has not been burnt seeps into the exhaust system as well as is ignited and causing a small explosion.
- Carburetor: It is the fuel system component which can supply the proper mixture of fuel as well as air to the engine. This part of the engine can adjust their air and fuel mixture within an engine in order to meet the different operating conditions such as heat or altitude.
