Research and Markets: Vehicle Handling Dynamics - Combining Classical Vehicle Dynamics with Electronic Controls

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zpjrjv/vehicle_handling) has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new book "Vehicle Handling Dynamics" to their offering.

This is the first book to combine classical vehicle dynamics with electronic control. The equation-based presentation of the theory behind vehicle dynamics enables readers to develop a thorough understanding of the key attribute to both a vehicle's driveability and its active safety. Supported by MATLAB tools, the key areas that affect vehicle dynamics are explored including tire mechanics, the steering system, vehicle roll, traction and braking, 4WS and vehicle dynamics, vehicle dynamics by vehicle and human control, and controllabiliy.

As a professional reference volume, this book is an essential addition to the resources available to anyone working in vehicle design and development. Written by a leading authority in the field (who himself has considerable practical experience), the book has a unique blend of theory and practice that will be of immense value in this applications based field.

Get a thorough understand of why vehicles respond they way they do with a complete treatment of vehicle dynamics from theory to application
