Tire and Vehicle Dynamics
- Hans Pacejka, Professor of Vehicle Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Editor in Chief of the journal Vehicle System Dynamics. Secretary General and President of the International Association for Vehicle System Engineering. Consultant TNO Automotive.
In this new paperback edition of Tyre and Vehicle Dynamics, theory is supported by practical and experimental evidence. Pacejka provides both basic and advanced explanations of the pneumatic tyre and its impact on vehicle dynamic performance. The book shows the way in which tyre models are incorporated in vehicle models and how important tyre influence is on overall vehicle behaviour. Those working in any industry involving equipment with tyres will continue to find this book both extremely relevant and useful.
Mechanical engineers, automotive engineers, vehicle designers, dynamic specialists, tyre engineers in the automotive and other transportation industries including aircraft undercarriage design; Students of automotive engineering at post-graduate/masters level
