A comprehensive overview of integrated vehicle system dynamics exploring the fundamentals and new and emerging developments

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of vehicle system dynamics and control, particularly in the area of integrated vehicle dynamics control. The book consists of two parts, (1) development of individual vehicle system dynamic model and control methodology; and (2) development of integrated vehicle dynamic model and control methodology. The first part focuses on investigating vehicle system dynamics and control according to the three directions of vehicle motions, including longitudinal, vertical, and lateral. Corresponding individual control systems, e.g. Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Active Suspension, Electric Power Steering System (EPS), are introduced and developed respectively.

Particular attention is paid in the second part of the book to develop integrated vehicle dynamic control system. Integrated vehicle dynamics control system is an advanced system that coordinates all the chassis control systems and components to improve the overall vehicle performance including safety, comfort, and economy. Integrated vehicle dynamics control has been an important research topic in the area of vehicle dynamics and control over the past two decades. The research topic on integrated vehicle dynamics control is investigated comprehensively and intensively in the book through both theoretical analysis and experimental study. In this part, two types of control architectures, i.e. centralized and multi-layer, have been developed and compared to demonstrate their advantages and disadvantages.

Integrated vehicle dynamics control is a hot topic in automotive research; this is one of the few books to address both theory and practice of integrated systems Comprehensively explores the research area of integrated vehicle dynamics and control through both theoretical analysis and experimental study Addresses a full range of vehicle system topics including tyre dynamics, chassis systems, control architecture, 4 wheel steering system and design of control systems using Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) Method
This book provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging introduction to the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering in a distinct and clear manner. The book is intended for a core introductory course in the area of foundations and applications of mechanical engineering, prescribed for the first-year students of all disciplines of engineering. The book develops an intuitive understanding of the basic principles of thermodynamics as well as of the principles governing the conversion of heat into energy. Numerous illustrative examples are provided to fortify these concepts throughout. The book gives the students a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice in the areas of heat engines, steam boilers, internal combustion engines, refrigeration and air conditioning, and to devices such as turbines, pumps and compressors. The book also provides a basic understanding of mechanical design, illustrating the principles through a discussion of devices designed for the transmission of motion and power such as couplings, clutches and brakes. No book on basic mechanical engineering is complete without an introduction to materials science. The text covers the treatment of the common engineering materials, highlighting their properties and applications. Finally, the role of lubrication and lubricants in reducing the wear and tear of parts in mechanical systems, is lucidly explained in the concluding chapter. The text features several fully worked-out examples, a fairly large number of numerical problems with answers, end-of-chapter review questions and multiple choice questions, which all enhance the value of the text to the students. Besides the students studying for an engineering degree, this book is also suitable for study by the students of AMIE and the students of diploma level courses.
The authors of Mechanical Engineering Systems have taken a highly practical approach within this book, bringing the subject to life through a lively text supported by numerous activities and case studies. Little prior knowledge of mathematics is assumed and so key numerical and statistical techniques are introduced through unique Maths in Action features.

A Gear Chronology A Review In his foreword to A Gear Chronology book, author William P. Crosher dedicates his work to “those engineers and organizations that give freely of their time and experience to develop standards and technical conferences that are so crucial to the progress of the gear industry.” In my experience, Crosher demonstrates this same desire to know all he can about his profession, and to contribute to its continued growth and evolution in an ongoing and proactive manner. As complicated and technical as some of the topics he discusses can be, Crosher writes in a manner that is straightforward, accessible, and informative. In other words, he harnesses the same approach utilized by any good teacher in finding a way to engage his audience while at the same time conveying valuable information. He achieves this by providing historical and peripheral material that brings the subject under discussion to life. In chapters devoted to the fundamentals of gearing, definitions of gear elements, materials, and processes such as heat treating, the author builds a solid foundation for later chapters on subjects including spur, helical, and worm gear design, gear manufacturing and inspection, lubrication properties, and failure modes, along with an analysis of those examined. Topics are explored fully and explained clearly, with a wealth of helpful illustrations in support of the text. References and resources are listed at the end of the book, including contact information for associations that can assist in the reader’s continued professional growth. The former director of the National Conference on Power Transmission, as well as former chairman of the American Gear Manufacturers Association’s Marketing Council and Enclosed Drive Committee, Crosher was resident engineer-North America for Thyssen Gear Works, and later at Flender Graffenstaden. He is author of the book Design and Application of the Worm Gear and longtime writer of the “Tooth Tips” column that appears each month in the pages of Gear Solutions magazine, which is published by Media Solutions, Inc. As editor I can attest to the fact that his work generates a high degree of reader response, and that he is both known and respected in the gear-manufacturing industry around the world. It is an honor to be in a position to share his knowledge and expertise with our readers, and to have the opportunity to comment on his latest professional endeavor.

High standards of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance are expected in vehicle design. Refinement is therefore one of the main engineering/design attributes to be addressed when developing new vehicle models and components.

Vehicle noise and vibration refinement provides a review of noise and vibration refinement principles, methods, advanced experimental and modelling techniques and palliative treatments necessary in the process of vehicle design, development and integration in order to meet noise and vibration standards. Case studies from the collective experience of specialists working for major automotive companies are included to form an important reference for engineers practising in the motor industry who seek to overcome the technological challenges faced in developing quieter, more comfortable cars.

The reader will be able to develop an in-depth knowledge of the source and transmission mechanisms of noise and vibration in motor vehicles, and a clear understanding of vehicle refinement issues that directly influence a customer’s purchasing decision.Reviews noise and vibration refinement principles, methods and modelling techniques necessary in vehicle design, development and integration in order to meet noise and vibration standardsOutlines objectives driving development and the significance of vehicle noise and vibration refinement whilst documenting definitions of key terms for use in practiceCase studies demonstrate measurement and modelling in industry and illustrate key testing methods including hand sensing and environmental testing
