Synopsis:

The course 'Vehicle Dynamics' is aimed at gaining a basic understanding about vehicle horizontal and vertical performance. It offers a good balance between fundamentals and practical aspects of vehicle horizontal and vertical performance in relationship to its suspension components including tyres. With this basis, students will learn how to set up equations of motion and derive fundamental mathematical models to understand and experiment the basic phenomena of Vehicle Dynamics.

Requirements:

1) Introduction into the theory of dynamic systems

2) Forces acting between road and wheel

3) Basics of longitudinal dynamics

4) Basics of vertical dynamics

5) Basics of lateral dynamics

6) Wheel- and axle kinematics

7) Modelling of vehicle components: tyres, springs, dampers

8) Criteria of good handling performance

9) Criteria of ride comfort

10) Controlled subsystems of vehicle dynamics: suspension, braking, lateral stability
