Vehicle Dynamics : Theory and Application, Hardback Book

Vehicle Dynamics : Theory and Application Hardback


This intermediate textbook is appropriate for students in vehicle dynamics courses, in their last year of undergraduate study or their first year of graduate study.

It is also appropriate for mechanical engineers, automotive engineers, and researchers in the area of vehicle dynamics for continuing education or as a reference.

It addresses fundamental and advanced topics, and a basic knowledge of kinematics and dynamics, as well as numerical methods, is expected.The contents are kept at a theoretical-practical level, with a strong emphasis on application.

This third edition has been reduced by 25%, to allow for coverage over one semester, as opposed to the previous edition that needed two semesters for coverage.

The textbook is composed of four parts:Vehicle Motion: covers tire dynamics, forward vehicle dynamics, and driveline dynamicsVehicle Kinematics: covers applied kinematics, applied mechanisms, steering dynamics, and suspension mechanismsVehicle Dynamics: covers applied dynamics, vehicle planar dynamics, and vehicle roll dynamicsVehicle Vibration: covers applied vibrations, vehicle vibrations, and suspension optimizationVehicle dynamics concepts are covered in detail, with a concentration on their practical uses.

Also provided are related theorems and formal proofs, along with case examples.

Readers appreciate the user-friendly presentation of the science and engineering of the mechanical aspects of vehicles, and learn how to analyze and optimize vehicles' handling and ride dynamics.
