About this course

Course Summary

In this course of Vehicle Dynamics, we illuminate the longitudinal, lateral  and vertical dynamic aspects of vehicles. Clear and brief: Acceleration and braking, the cornering of an ATV and the elements involved when an ATV drives on a bumpy or rough Terrain. In Detail: After an introduction, we will look at driving resistances and slip, explain the demand of power and limits of an ATV, then clarify the needs for a clutch and gears and look at the rear and front weights during acceleration and braking. After that will start with a simple single-track model and then describe the slip angle of a wheel. The slip angle results in cornering forces, which are essential for understanding lateral dynamics. After that, we will look at the dependency between longitudinal and lateral forces using Kamm’s circle and Krempel’s diagram. Then we will investigate steady state cornering, stability and the influence of different weight distributions between inner and outer side wheels of the ATV. At last will start with a survey of suspensions and springs and dampers. After this, we will explain the description of rough streets and give an introduction to Fourier integrals. Next, we will take a closer look at vertical models. In the last fundamental part of the course, we will describe the conflict between driving safety and comfort. The course will be finished with Dynamic simulation of automotive parts like suspension, Chassis, Brakes, Hub, Upright, Arms, Steering through various analysis softwares e.g. ADAMS CAR, Lotus.
