About this Textbook

The Automotive Chassis is the result of two decades of experience: On the one hand from the experience of teaching courses such as Vehicle Mechanics, Vehicle System Design, Chassis Design to engineering students; on the other hand from the design practice of vehicle and chassis components in a large automotive company.

This work is addressed primarily to students of automotive engineering and secondarily to all technicians and designers working in this field. It is also addressed to all enthusiasts who are looking for a technical guide.

The text is subdivided in two volumes. The first one deals with the automotive chassis componenst, such as

· a structure, usually a ladder framework, able to carry all the remaining components of the vehicle;

· the suspensions for the mechanical linkage of wheels with the framework;

· the wheels and their tires;

· the steering system for changing wheel angles according to vehicle path;

· the brake system for reducing speed or stopping the vehicle;

· the transmission for applying engine torque to the driving wheels.

The second volume deals with the automotive chassis as a system, studying how it influences vehicle performance and dealing in detail with mathematical models useful for the design and analysis of the vehicle.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This comprehensive work on the automotive chassis covers a wide range of topics at a high level--both mathematically and in terms of the state-of-the-art in engineering. The first volume treats wheels, suspensions, steering, brakes, and transmissions. … Genta’s extensive teaching experience at the Politecnico di Torino in Italy combined with Morello’s experience as director of vehicle engineering at Fiat allow them to write authoritatively on this topic. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional automotive and mechanical engineering collections." (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 46 (11), July, 2009)
