The automotive chassis : engineering principles

    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.


    Written for component and system engineers, this text provides an overview of chassis technology, from the requirements and design of tires through axle kinematics to steering, springing, and damper systems. Reimpell (formerly, automotive engineering, U. of Applied Science Cologne), Stoll (an engineer), and Betzler (chassis/simulation technology, University of Applied Science Cologne) explain the principles of vehicle and suspension design, the platform concept, four-wheel drive technology, suspension design, and the standards of ISO 8855 and SAE J 670. The first English translation appeared in 1995, published by Arnold and SAE; the second edition appeared in 2000, published by Elsevier's Butterworth at a much higher price.
