About this book

Introduction

This textbook is appropriate for senior undergraduate and first year graduate students in mechanical and automotive engineering. The contents in this book are presented at a theoretical-practical level. It explains vehicle dynamics concepts in detail, concentrating on their practical use. Related theorems and formal proofs are provided, as are real-life applications. Students, researchers and practicing engineers alike will appreciate the user-friendly presentation of a wealth of topics, most notably steering, handling, ride, and related components.

This book also:

Illustrates all key concepts with examples

Includes exercises for each chapter

Covers front, rear, and four wheel steering systems, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of different steering schemes

Includes an emphasis on design throughout the text, which provides a practical, hands-on approach
