Tyre And Vehicle Dynamics / Edition 2 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Elsevier Science & Technology Books
Hans Pacejka is the acknowledged world authority on tyre mechanics, and most vehicle manufacturers use Pacejka’s ‘Magic Formula’ in their vehicle dynamics simulations.
Tyre and Vehicle Dynamics provides a complete reference on the mechanical behaviour of pneumatic tyres and their impact on vehicle performance. The comprehensive scope of the book includes developing an understanding of mathematical models of tyre behaviour, the incorporation of these models into vehicle models, and presenting an applied understanding of how the tyre influences vehicle behaviour. The book is supported by practical experimental observations and exercises.
Pacejka’s tyre model is the subject of continued development, particularly in extending its validity range to modelling higher frequencies and short wavelength obstacles and testing, which are covered in new chapters in this second edition.
• The definitive book on tyre mechanics, indispensable for any engineer working in vehicle system dynamics
• Detailed coverage of Pacejka’s ‘Magic Formula’ tyre model and both basic and advanced tyre modelling and simulation
• Accompanied by TredSim, a Matlab program for the calculation of steady-state force and moment response to slip
Written for practicing and student engineers, this book will be extremely useful and relevant for all automotive engineers and readers in any industry involving equipment with tyres.
Hans Pacejka is Professor Emeritus at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
