Course Contents
This course concentrates on main technical principles and aspects of vehicle construction and its subsystems. The course also provides fundamental knowledge on vehicle motion, correlated vehicle dynamics and vehicle-road interaction. This course discusses standard testing procedures to evaluate vehicle motion. Writing proficiency is required.
Study Goals
The student is able to apply dynamics methods and knowledge on vehicle specific problems. More specifically, the student must be able to:
1. describe principles of vehicle motion, correlated vehicle dynamics and vehicle-road interaction;
2. formulate fundamental equations of vehicle motion for aforementioned concepts;
3. implement the equations in the study of the specific vehicle subsystems;
4. perform standard testing procedures to evaluate vehicle motion via simulation.
Education Method
Lectures (4 hours per week), design assignments
Computer Use
MatLab/Simulink is used for analysis and simulation for homework assignments and group project
Literature and Study Materials
Lecture slides: Vehicle Dynamics A on the blackboard
