This work serves as a reference concerning the automotive chassis, i.e. everything that is inside a vehicle except the engine and the body. It is the result of a decade of work mostly done 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.
Covers all aspects of the subject
Covers both theoretical and the practical aspects
Deals with updated points like numerical modelling and virtual prototyping
Contains a large number of illustrations showing the design of actual components and systems, from many different manufacturers, together with worked numerical examples
