About this title The first book providing comprehensive coverage of vehicle dynamics in a single volume, Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics provides a foundation of engineering principles and analytical methods to explain the performance of an automotive vehicle, with chapters focusing on: acceleration performance; braking performance; aerodynamics and rolling resistance; ride; tires; steady-state cornering; suspensions; steering systems; and rollover. Acceleration, braking, turning, and ride are among the most fundamental properties of a motor vehicle. To understand the vehicle as a system, it is necessary to acquire a knowledge of all these modes. Motion is the common denominator of all these modes; thus, the study of this field is denoted as vehicle dynamics. Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics introduces the basic mechanics governing vehicle performance, and familiarizes the reader with analytical methods and terminology. This book attempts to find a middle ground by balancing engineering principles and equations of use to every automotive engineer with practical explanations of the mechanics involved, so that those without a formal engineering degree can still comprehend and use most of the principles discussed.

View Demo Clips Vehicle design always involves conflicting goals. The powertrain that gives best acceleration is not likely to be the most fuel-efficient. This course addresses the motor vehicle as a system. This will allow you to predict performance of a given design early in the design process, identify the conflicts in designing for optimal performance in different modes, and set directions for design changes that will improve performance of a given mode.
This on-demand course featuring vehicle dynamics expert and best-selling author, Thomas D. Gillespie, provides a broad overview of vehicle performance, including engineering analyses and formulas that will allow you to calculate useful performance metrics.
While the course is approximately 17 hours in length, the estimated time to completion, including knowledge checks and the learning assessment, is 18 hours.
Is this On Demand Course for You? The course will be beneficial to anyone interested in automotive performance, including professional engineers who need to understand the vehicle as a system, have technical interest in vehicle performance, or are involved in the design and development of automotive vehicles.
The course could also be valuable to technologists working to achieve a high level of vehicle performance and managers responsible for vehicle design, development, and testing. Have colleagues who need this course? See Special Offers to the right. Related Topics.
