This textbook offers a comprehensive treatment of vehicle dynamics using an innovative, compelling approach, suitable for engineering students and professionals alike. Written by an authoritative contributor in the fields of applied mathematics and mechanics, it focuses on the development of vehicle models paying special attention to all the relevant assumptions, and providing explanations for each step. Some classical concepts of vehicle dynamics are revisited and reformulated, making this book also interesting for experienced readers. Using clear definitions, sound mathematics, and worked-out exercises, the book helps readers to truly understand the essence of vehicle dynamics for solving practical problems. With respect to the previous edition, which was the recipient of a 2019 TAA Textbook Excellence Award, this thoroughly revised third edition presents a more extensive and in-depth analysis of braking and handling of race cars.
