What is Vehicle dynamics: Definition and 28 Discussions
For motorized vehicles, such as automobiles, aircraft, and watercraft, vehicle dynamics is the study of vehicle motion, e.g., how a vehicle's forward movement changes in response to driver inputs, propulsion system outputs, ambient conditions, air/surface/water conditions, etc.
Vehicle dynamics is a part of engineering primarily based on classical mechanics.
I understand what is moment of inertia is, flywheel with more mass at the edge has more inertia than flywheel that has mass closer to center.

Hello all, I wanted to know what would happen if I put a jack hammer system on the unsprung part of the suspension, I posted this on the engineering forum but couldn't get a complete answer.

Hi, I’m making a vehicle simulator and I’m not entirely sure if my inertia calculations are right or are completely wrong. What I currently have now is something like this:
1. Engine:
engine_Out_Inertia = engine_Inertia; this should contain the inertia of the engine and all of it’s auxiliaries...
I was modeling the dynamics of a vehicle for a project, and started doubting about the way of applying physics in this particular case.
The thing is, I know the torque in the wheels from the torque the electric motor I designed do provide, multiplied by the gearbox ratio. I also know the...
I have run into a problem when trying to model a simplified vehicle that has three degrees of freedom – roll, vertical and lateral motions. It is represented by a single mass with two links that model the suspension behaviour. The links connect the tyre-to-ground contact points (tc) to the body...
Summary:: I have to show to my university class an innovative feasible project. It's about new generation Highways, based on the Inductrack model. There are a lot of questions that I have to ask to know if it's a feasible project, so if there is someone patient that have time to answer all my...
Hello all,
I have written a VDM for my Masters thesis, unfortunately, since I am from a discipline other than mechanical engineering I don't have access to reliable validation material or a way to produce it (moreover, we don't have an actual vehicle testing lab/area at the U that I know of)...
I'm having issues in the application of tire forces while deriving a multi-body model of a motorcycle via Lagrange.
In particular, I considered several bodies that are: swingarm, main frame,
front upper fork, front lower fork and wheels.
I suppose the wheels to have zero slippage, then...
I'm struggling to understand something basic here. If I have a just a wheel, with mass 10kg, and radius 0.25m, and I specify that the CG is accelerating linearly at 1ms-2, how do I calculate the force needed to do this? Using F = ma gives 10N, but using this value for torque calculation on the...
The graph is relationship between longitudinal force and slip ratio under the conditions of 0 longitudinal acceleration and flat road(0 angle of inclination). Which line represent FWD or RWD? Does FWD or RWD have higher maximum slip ratio?
Hi,
I am a beginner in terms of mechanics and am an electrical engineer so I apologize in advance for asking what may be trivial questions. I am attempting to create a prototype design for an electric vehicle (truck) in which I am mimicking the Telsa drive train configuration but I am stumped...

CG is 1.25 m behind front axle and 0.5 m above ground level.
Wheel base is 2.8 m.
Effective rolling radius of wheel = 30 cm
Coefficient of aerodynamic drag =...
Im starting to learn about vehicle dynamics by watching video lectures here , and also reading the books by Gillepsie and Jazar. I´ve got a fundamental question about the FBD of the vehicle.

Hi,
I'm trying to implement an auto track guidance system for ground vehicles (Eg Tractors), I'm using Matlab and Simulink. I'm at a point where I can calculate heading errors. I'm not too sure how to calculate the lateral errors. Also, I need help in designing the controller. I'm using...
Assume that a motorcycle of mass m has two wheels that are equidistant from its centre i.e the force on each wheel is m*g/2.
If the motorcycle accelerates forward, will the two forces on each wheel (measured instantaneously) remain the same? If not, how can one mathematically describe the...
Hi,
I'm doing a study about tire dynamics and have some question that I can't get answers to.
The first images shows the forces balances. Since we have no turqe the force has to balance ant the extensence of the T_r is obvious...
Dear all,
I just found your forum and read quite a few threads on suspension design and vehicle dynamics. I have been working in this area for decades and created some excel based tools that might be of interest to some of you. I might give some comment here and there :-).

Hello everybody,
I am looking for some help from Native english speakers (or otherwise extremely good speakers), for a bulletproof grammar review for a research paper.
The paper is about education and automotive engineering, so context is important and so the reason I post it here.

Hi friends,
Presently I am in my 1st semester of my Masters and have taken course on Basic controls and Modeling, I don't have any course on Vehicle dynamics offered in our University.
So can you please give sources and videos where I can get basic dynamics of vehicles so that I can apply the...
I'm a CS student interested in learning vehicle dynamics to program a simulator (like iRacing for example). I know this is a difficult task but I am willing to take the long road. So I am asking here, what math and physics subjects should I go through to make this happen? I guess it's probably...
A vehicle's engine produces 100 hp at 4773 rpm. If the wheel radius is 12 inches, the final drive ratio is 3 and the transmission ratio is 3.00, calculate the tractive force at the wheel, in steady state.
Centripetal force, enertia, friction, velocity, and mass; these are the forces I've collected that I need to manipulate to simulate vehicle dynamics. I'm playing around in Adobe Flash working on a vehicle rig for a simple game for self education's sake.
Now I don't know anything about...
