This book describes the development of a new analytical, full-vehicle model with nine degrees of freedom, which uses the new modified skyhook strategy (SKDT) to control the full-vehicle vibration problem. The book addresses the incorporation of road bank angle to create a zero steady-state torque requirement when designing the direct tilt control and the dynamic model of the full car model. It also highlights the potential of the SKDT suspension system to improve cornering performance and paves the way for future work on the vehicle’s integrated chassis control system. Active tilting technology to improve vehicle cornering is the focus of numerous ongoing research projects, but these don’t consider the effect of road bank angle in the control system design or in the dynamic model of the tilting standard passenger vehicles. The non-incorporation of road bank angle creates a non-zero steady state torque requirement.

Through appendices and diagrams, Car Suspension and Handling, Fourth Edition, outlines the purpose and history of vehicle suspension systems, while defining the basic parameters of suspension geometry. In addition, the book delves into human sensitivity to vibration and offers data on durability, tyre background information, steering calculations and suspension calculations. While always recognizing that there are differences in suspension requirements for different classes of vehicles and in various markets of the world for a given vehicle, this book focuses on the suspension and handling of cars or automobiles, as opposed to those characteristics of other types of road vehicles. Engineers in the automotive industry who are involved with handling analysis and design, students seeking more thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and potential problem areas, and university/college libraries.

Racecar drivers have the ability to operate a vehicle at its friction limit without losing control. If autonomous vehicles or driver assistance systems had similar capabilities, many fatal accidents could be avoided. To advance this goal, an autonomous racing controller is designed to gain insights into vehicle control at the friction limits. Adjustable shock absorbers are becoming popular in drag racing. You can adjust their damping characteristics to suit varying tracks and/or track conditions to eliminate wheel hop and tire shake. That leads to improved reaction times. The best adjustable shocks are the ones that offer both compression and extension adjustment. These are better known as double-adjustable shocks. To better understand how double-adjustable shocks can help you win more races, let's take a look at how compression and extension affect a suspension. The main takeaway you got from the book was that to set up a winning suspension in your car, you need to go do your own research and work.

A step-by-step guide to DIY air suspension for your road car. Manufacturers like Mercedes, Tesla, Audi and Cadillac choose air suspension because they can achieve the highest quality in ride and handling, but until now, there hasn’t been a book that shows you how to get the best from aftermarket air suspension for your road car. This book covers both theory and practice – from the technical advantages of air suspension through to detailed coverage of the development, installation and tuning of a custom air suspension system. It looks at wiring and plumbing, covers a brilliant new low cost electronic air suspension controller, and even shows how to source low-cost components from cars originally sold with air suspension. Want to buy an air suspension kit off the shelf? That’s covered as well, with the six key questions to ask before buying. Written by a prolific hands-on modifier, who has designed and fitted air suspension to his own car, this book is a practical, easy-to-follow guide. Whether you’re after the best ride and handling, or simply like being able to raise or lower your car at the turn of a knob, this book will show you how to do it.

This book is an introduction to the elementary technology of automobile suspensions. Inevitably steering geometry must be included in the text, since the dynamic steering behaviour, road-holding and cornering behaviour are all influenced by the suspension design. Steering mechanisms and steering components are not covered in this book. This is not a mathematical treatise, but only a fool or a genius would attempt to design a motor vehicle without mathematics. The mathematics used in this book should present no problem to a first-year university student. SI units have been used in general, but for the benefit of those not familiar with them we have included in brackets, in many cases, the equivalent values in Imperial units. Many engineers regard the Pascal as an impractical unit of pressure. The author has therefore expressed pressures in bars (1 bar = 105Pa). A deviation from SI units is the use of degrees and minutes, instead of radians, to express camber, castor, roll angles, etc. This is still common practice in the motor industry. No attempt has been made to make any stress calculations on suspension components. The automobile engineering student will have access to other textbooks on such subjects as strength of materials and theory of structures.
