About this book

Vehicle dynamics and road dynamics are usually considered to be two largely independent subjects. In vehicle dynamics, road surface roughness is generally regarded as random excitation of the vehicle, while in road dynamics, the vehicle is generally regarded as a moving load acting on the pavement. This book suggests a new research concept to integrate the vehicle and the road system with the help of a tire model, and establishes a cross-subject research framework dubbed vehicle-pavement coupled system dynamics. In this context, the dynamics of the vehicle, road and the vehicle-road coupled system are investigated by means of theoretical analysis, numerical simulations and field tests.
This book will be a valuable resource for university professors, graduate students and engineers majoring in automotive design, mechanical engineering, highway engineering and other related areas.

About the authors

Dr. Shaopu Yang received his Ph.D. from Tianjin University in 1991. He currently serves as a professor and deputy president at Shijiazhuang Tiedao University. He is also a committee member of IFToMM. He is a leading scientist of the National Basic Research Program of China (973 Project).  He was in charge of more than 30 projects including three key projects for the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and has published over 150 journal and conference papers.  He received the National Science and Technology Award in 2003. His research was funded by the National Outstanding Young Scientist Fund of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He is also winner of the Science and Technology Award of Hebei Province for three times (2005, 2009, 2013).

Dr. Liqun Chen is the Chang Jiang Chair Professor at Shanghai University. His research was rewarded by the National Outstanding Young Scientist Fund of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He has co-authored 5 books, namely Mechanics of Vibrations (1998, 2000, 2011), Nonlinear Dynamics (2000), Nonlinear Vibrations (2001, 2003), Theoretical Mechanics (2006, 2014), and Chaos in Attitude Dynamics of Spacecraft (in English) (2013). He has published over 100 papers in international journals in the fields of nonlinear dynamics and vibration of continua.

Dr. Shaohua Li is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at ShijiaZhuang Tiedao University. She received M.S. (2003) from STDU and Ph.D. (2009) degree from Beijing Jiaotong University. Since 2003, she has been working on the research of vehicle dynamics and control and has published 25 journal papers. As principal investigator, she has fulfilled 5 projects and is still fulfilling 2 projects, including “The National Natural Science Foundation of China: Nonlinear dynamics of heavy-duty vehicles under complex conditions” and “Project Supported by New Century Talent Foundation of Ministry of Education, China: Modeling, simulation and control of the driver-vehicle-road system”.  Her research was funded by the Hebei Outstanding Young Scientist Fund of the Natural Science Foundation of Hebei.
