Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Truly comprehensive in its coverage of the fundamental concepts of vehicle dynamics and their application in a racing environment. Race Car Vehicle Dynamics is expected to become the definitive reference on this topic. Although the book's primary focus is the race car, the engineering fundamentals it details are also applicable to passenger car design and engineering. 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. 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, and lap time simulation. 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 Simplified Steady-State Stability and Control Steady-State Pair Analysis Force-Moment Analysis 'g-g' Diagram Race Car Design Testing and Development Chassis Set-Up Historical Note on Vehicle Dynamics Development Tire Data Treatment Applied Aerodynamics Ride and Roll Rates Suspension Geometry Wheel Loads Steering Systems Driving and Braking Suspension Springs Dampers (Shock Absorbers) Compliances.
