We offer no apologies for making this important... book our choice for the second time around. Widely welcomed, its content is already beingput to good use by many race car engineers... Today, anyone who wishes to make a career by understanding the automobile and its vagaries should start here. And anyone who wishes to appear to understand it should have this book on his or her desk--in the same way that Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time is essential!"
--Race Car Engineering
"...even if you're not historically inclined, the book's theoretical and technical sections (its vast majority) make for a definitive work on chassis dynamics, meaning that if you are an armchair John Barnhard (or are John Barnhard), you might want to box a dozen or so of your Porsche or Bugatti books and make some room on the bookshelf for Race Car Vehicle Dynamics."
--Kim Reynolds, Road & Track
"No other source provides such complete answers to why racing cars behave as they do. Very highly recommended."
- Vintage Motorsport
"An impressive... blend of analytical understanding and hard won practical experience from both passenger and race car design."
--Automotive Engineer (published by IMechE)
"On the macro level RCVD deals with general principles of vehicle dynamics but on the micro level was specifically geared towards racing; it synthesizes fundamental theory and practical application. Any race team that doesn’t have a copy of this well written book is not winning as much as they could!"
--Sabu Advani, SpeedReaders.info
Truly comprehensive in its coverage of the fundamental concepts of vehicle dynamics and their application in a racing environment. Race Car Vehicle Dynamics is expected to become the definitive reference on this topic. Although the book's primary focus is the race car, the engineering fundamentals it details are also applicable to passenger car design and engineering. Written for the engineer as well as the race car enthusiast, Race Car Vehicle Dynamics includes much information that is not available in any other vehicle dynamics text. Authors Bill and Doug Milliken have developed many of the original vehicle dynamics theories and principles covered in this book, including the Moment Method, 'g-g' Diagram, pair analysis, and lap time simulation. The book also includes contributions from other experts in the field. Chapters cover: The Problem Imposed by Racing Tire Behavior Aerodynamic Fundamentals Vehicle Axis Systems Simplified Steady-State Stability and Control Steady-State Pair Analysis Force-Moment Analysis 'g-g' Diagram Race Car Design Testing and Development Chassis Set-Up Historical Note on Vehicle Dynamics Development Tire Data Treatment Applied Aerodynamics Ride and Roll Rates Suspension Geometry Wheel Loads Steering Systems Driving and Braking Suspension Springs Dampers (Shock Absorbers) Compliances. The book also includes an extensive listing of references and a list of symbols, conveniently located on the inside front and back covers for ease of use. Well illustrated with over 450 figures and tables.See all Product description
