Road Vehicle Dynamics: Fundamentals and Modeling

Road Vehicle Dynamics: Fundamentals and Modeling

Written for undergraduate and graduate students, Road Vehicle Dynamics: Fundamentals and Modeling derives vehicle dynamics fundamentals from simple models and presents case studies with MATLAB to develop modeling skills. The book begins with an introduction and overview of units and quantities, terminology and definitions, multibody dynamics, and equations of motion. It then discusses the road, highlighting both deterministic and stochastic road models; tire handling including contact calculation, longitudinal and lateral forces, vertical axis torques, and measurement and modeling techniques.

MATLAB is used to solve examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
