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.
