Description / Abstract:

1. Scope--Historically SAE has been concerned with nomenclature as an integral part of the standards development process. Guidelines for automotive nomenclature were written in 1916, were last revised in 1941, and were included in the SAE Handbook until 1962. The present diversity of groups working on nomenclature in the various ground vehicle committees led to the organization of the Nomenclature Advisory Committee under SAE Automotive Council.

1.1 Objective--The objective of the Committee is to promote understandable and precise communication relating to the engineering aspects of on-highway vehicles, their components, their design, and their evaluation. In order to reach this objective, the Committee is primarily concerned with the definition or redefinition of needed terms considering (a) current usage, (b) changing needs, and (c) the interactive use of a particular term by various SAE Committees, government agencies, and other national and international organizations. In order to facilitate and encourage the use of generally accepted terminology by SAE committees and other organizations, the Nomenclature Advisory Committee plans to prepare and maintain a glossary of terms appearing in SAE technical reports.
