Summary and Info
Tire and Vehicle Dynamics provides a complete reference on the mechanical behavior of pneumatic tires and their impact on vehicle performance. The comprehensive scope of the book includes developing an understanding of mathematical models of tire behavior, the incorporation of these models into vehicle models, and presenting an applied understanding of how the tire influences vehicle behavior. The book is supported by practical experimental observations and exercises. Pacejka's tire model is the subject of continued development, particularly in extending its validity range to modeling higher frequencies and short wavelength obstacles and testing, which are covered in new chapters in this second edition.
