About this book
The most forms of racing, cornering speed is the key to winning. On the street, precise and predictable handling is the key to high performance driving. However, the art and science of engineering a chassis can be difficult to comprehend, let alone apply. But in HPBooks' Chassis Engineering, chassis expert Herb Adams clearly explains the complex principles of suspension geometry and chassis design in terms the novice can easily understand and apply to any project. Hundreds of photos and illustrations offer the information on what it takes to design, build and tune the ultimate chassis for maximum cornering power, both on and off the track. Sections include - Tire Characteristics; - Weight Distribution; - Roll Angle & Roll Force; - Bushings, Springs & Shocks; - Front Suspension Design & Building; - Rear Suspension Design & Building; - Frame Design & Building; - Aerodynamic Downforce; - Vehicle Testing & Tuning. 'Chassis Engineering' gives you the inside edge on how to apply the principles of suspension and chassis design for any application. Go ahead - enhance the cornering performance of your sports car. Set-up you Modified for circle tracks. Tune your vintage or road-racer for more cornering speed. You can even learn to set-up a Winston Cup car for the high banks of Daytona! Chassis Engineering is a must-have reference for novices and professionals alike.
The book acts as an introduction to the engineering design of the automobile's fundamental mechanical systems.
About this book
This comprehensive overview of chassis technology presents an up-to-date picture for vehicle construction and design engineers in education and industry. The book acts as an introduction to the engineering design of the automobile's fundamental mechanical systems. Clear text and first class diagrams are used to relate basic engineering principles to the particular requirements of the chassis. In addition, the 2nd edition of 'The Automotive Chassis' has a new author team and has been completely updated to include new technology in total vehicle and suspension design, including platform concept and four-wheel drive technology.
The aim of the book is to be a reference book in automotive technology, as far as automotive chassis (i.e. everything that is inside a vehicle except the engine and the body) is concerned.
About this book
The aim of the book is to be a reference book in automotive technology, as far as automotive chassis (i.e. everything that is inside a vehicle except the engine and the body) is concerned. The book is a result of a decade of work heavily sponsored by the FIAT group (who supplied material, together with other automotive companies, and sponsored the work). The first volume deals with the design of automotive components and the second volume treats the various aspects of the design of a vehicle as a system.
