Vehicle Dynamics for Passenger Cars and Light Trucks
This e-Seminar presents an introduction to vehicle dynamics from a vehicle system perspective. The theory and applications are associated with the interaction and performance balance between the powertrain, brakes, steering, suspensions and wheel and tire vehicle subsystems. The role that vehicle dynamics can and should play in effective automotive chassis development and the information and technology flow from vehicle system to subsystem to piece-part is integrated into the presentation. Dr. Richard Lundstrom develops and solves governing equations of motion for both steady and transient conditions.
