Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics provides a foundation of engineering principles + analytical methods to explain the performance of an automotive vehicle, with chapters focusing on acceleration + braking performance; aerodynamics + rolling resistance; ride; tires; steady-state cornering; suspensions; steering systems; and rollover.
Vehicle systems dynamics is the study of the motion of rubber-tired ground vehicles. Dynamic vehicle responses result from the tire, gravitational and aerodynamic forces that a vehicle is subjected to.
