About this book

Ground Vehicle Dynamics is devoted to the mathematical modelling and dynamical analysis of ground vehicle systems composed of the vehicle body, the guidance and suspension devices and the corresponding guideway. Automobiles on uneven roads and railways on flexible tracks are prominent representatives of ground vehicle systems. All these different kinds of systems are treated in a common way by means of analytical dynamics and control theory. In addition to a detailed modelling of vehicles as multibody systems, the contact theory for rolling wheels and the modelling of guideways by finite element systems as well as stochastic processes are presented. As a particular result of this integrated approach the state equations of the global systems are obtained including the complete interactions between the subsystems considered as independent modules. The fundamentals of vehicle dynamics for longitudinal, lateral and vertical motions and vibrations of automobiles and railways are discussed in detail.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book deals with the dynamic behaviour of ground vehicles, such as automotive passenger cars, but also addresses railway vehicles and magnetically levitated trains. … this book is a very useful companion for an advanced course on automotive vehicle dynamics … . the mathematical depth and provided examples are adequate for postgraduate courses as an additional reference material, or for providing the foundations necessary to find practical solutions and design new vehicles.” (Diego Ledezma-Ramirez, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 19 (2), 2014)

“It is written for students of applied mechanics, system theory, mechanical engineering, and automotive engineering. It also aims to illustrate to engineers joining or working with vehicle companies, or their suppliers, advanced methods that are the basis of software tools widely used in the automotive industry today.” (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 31, February, 2011)
