This book attempts to find a middle ground by balancing engineering principles and equations of use to every automotive engineer with practical explanations of the mechanics involved, so that those without a formal engineering degree can still comprehend and use most of the principles discussed. Either as an introductory text or a practical professional overview, this book is an ideal reference.

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. Truly comprehensive in its coverage of the fundamental concepts of vehicle dynamics and their application in a racing environment, this book has become the definitive reference on this topic. Although the primary focus is on the race car, the engineering fundamentals detailed are also applicable to passenger car design and engineering. 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, lap time simulation, and tyre data normalization. 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 and more.

For years, engineers have turned to Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles as their 'bible' on this field. The fourth edition continues this tradition. Much of the material has been substantially revised, and new chapters on wind noise and motorcycles have been added. Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles thoroughly covers the fundamental principles that influence vehicle performance, handling, safety and comfort.

An excellent introduction to the topic for the novice or student and a useful refresher and reference for the expert, the book focuses on:

  • The fundamentals of fluid dynamics as related to vehicle aerodynamics
  • Specific experimental results
  • Design strategies, showing how existing individual results can be applied to specific problems
  • Development techniques, as related to different types of wind tunnels, on-road tests and numerical methods.

The aerodynamics of passenger cars, commercial vehicles, sports and race cars, and motorcycles are dealt with in detail. Related fields that are influenced by aerodynamics are also covered, including the effects of aerodynamics on fuel economy, directional stability, engine cooling, and passenger comfort.

Contents include:

  • Introduction to Automobile Aerodynamics (including a section on its history)
  • Some Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics
  • Performance of Cars and Light Trucks
  • Aerodynamics Drag of Passenger Cars
  • Directional Stability
  • Function, Safety, and Comfort
  • Wind Noise
  • High-Performance Vehicles
  • Commercial Vehicles
  • Motorcycles
  • Engine Cooling
  • Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning of Passenger Cars
  • Wind Tunnels
  • Measurement and Test Techniques
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics

Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles is an indispensable book for vehicle engineers, designers, researchers, and those working in government regulatory agencies. It is also an excellent introduction for students, and an insightful look for the enthusiast at why vehicles behave as they do. The book covers aerodynamic principles of: Passenger cars; Commercial vehicles; Sports and race car; Motorcycles. By reading this book, vehicle engineers and designers will be able to: Apply general rules to solve your own design problems; Develop test techniques and design strategies to maximise aerodynamic effectiveness. Car enthusiasts will gain an understanding of: Why vehicles behave as they do; The factors affecting vehicle performance, handling, safety, and comfort. Students will learn: The fundamentals of aerodynamics and its application in the 'real-world' of vehicle design; How to apply specific experimental results as general rules to solve design problems./P
