The Multibody systems analysis is the established basis for the design and development of vehicle dynamic behavior. Comprehensively bridging the gaps between subjective vehicle assessment, classical vehicle dynamics and computer-based multibody approaches, this book is an essential reference for engineers involved with all aspects of vehicle dynamics--from concept design to system analysis and handling development.
Combining theoretical aspects of vehicle dynamics and the practical applications of multibody systems techniques, the book draws on laboratory studies, test-track work, and finished vehicle applications.
Key features include:
Use of industry-standard MSC.ADAMS virtual prototype software
Practical examples and real-world applications throughout, including work documenting the application of multibody systems in real vehicle development
Consideration of full-vehicle modeling and simulation, interpretation of results and the use of active systems to modify the dynamics of vehicles
A full set of vehicle model schematics, three tire modeling routines, and a complete set of vehicle data is available from the accompanying web site for use in conjunction with the book, allowing readers to build suspension models and full vehicle models of varying complexity
Written for automotive students and practicing engineers, the blend of theory and pragmatism ensures that this book is of real value in this emotive and complex field.
