Written for the engineer as well as the race car enthusiast, Race Car Vehicle Dynamics includes much information that is not available in any other vehicle dynamics text. Truly comprehensive in its coverage of the fundamental concepts of vehicle dynamics and their application in a racing environment, this book has become the definitive reference on this topic. Although the primary focus is on the race car, the engineering fundamentals detailed are also applicable to passenger car design and engineering. Authors Bill and Doug Milliken have developed many of the original vehicle dynamics theories and principles covered in this book, including the Moment Method, "g-g" Diagram, pair analysis, lap time simulation, and tyre data normalization. The book also includes contributions from other experts in the field. Chapters cover: The Problem Imposed by Racing Tire Behavior Aerodynamic Fundamentals Vehicle Axis Systems and more.

Most vehicle dynamics are difficult to read, use jargon and waffle on subjects that are not useful to the reader. The book aims to give the reader knowledge around race car set up and the suspension systems used within a motorsport environment. The reader is given useful information and a deep understand behind a race car's adjustable components and parts to set up the vehicle for optimum performance in dry conditions. Subjects explored include the ride height, ground clearance, suspension preload, camber, caster, toe, tracking, wheel alignment, set up sheets, checking readiness to race, handling characteristics of a single seater race car and much more. This book also looks at suspension systems commonly found on race cars (and some rare suspension set ups too!), including, double wishbone (inboard and outboard set ups), MacPherson strut , push and pull rod, monoshock and third damper set ups. Containing useful references for more background reading if desired, this book is your one stop shop on covering race car set-ups and suspension systems on a race car!

This textbook covers handling and performance of both road and race cars. Mathematical models of vehicles are developed always paying attention to state the relevant assumptions and to provide explanations for each step. This innovative approach provides a deep, yet simple, analysis of the dynamics of vehicles. The reader will soon achieve a clear understanding of the subject, which will be of great help both in dealing with the challenges of designing and testing new vehicles and in tackling new research topics. The book deals with several relevant topics in vehicle dynamics that are not discussed elsewhere and this new edition includes thoroughly revised chapters, with new developments, and many worked exercises. Praise for the previous edition: Great book! It has changed drastically our approach on many topics. We are now using part of its theory on a daily basis to constantly improve ride and handling performances. --- Antonino Pizzuto, Head of Chassis Development Group at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center Astonishingly good! Everything is described in a very compelling and complete way. Some parts use a different approach than other books. --- Andrea Quintarelli, Automotive Engineer

'An Introduction to Modern Vehicle Design' provides a thorough introduction to the many aspects of passenger car design in one volume. Starting with basic principles, the author builds up analysis procedures for all major aspects of vehicle and component design. Subjects of current interest to the motor industry, such as failure prevention, designing with modern materials, ergonomics and control systems are covered in detail, and the author concludes with a discussion on the future trends in automobile design. With contributions from both academics lecturing in motor vehicle engineering and those working in the industry, "An Introduction to Modern Vehicle Design" provides students with an excellent overview and background in the design of vehicles before they move on to specialised areas. Filling the niche between the more descriptive low level books and books which focus on specific areas of the design process, this unique volume is essential for all students of automotive engineering. Only book to cover the broad range of topics for automobile design and analysis procedures Each topic written by an expert with many years experience of the automotive industry
