The design of automotive suspension does not only aim at increasing dynamic performances, but also improving the handling of vehicles. Handling derives from the sensations transmitted by the vehicle to the user on the adherence conditions, in combination with the degree of sensitivity of the controls regarding the lateral response. Improved handling refines the driver’s attunement to the car, making the prediction of dynamic reactions easier and allowing for greater confidence in reaching the limit. This volume offers a detailed guide to understanding the functioning of suspensions and the related elastokinematic study. This focuses on controlling the lateral dynamic behaviour of the vehicle, intended both as absolute performance and driving feeling.
The text has a scientific approach and requires an adequate technical background for a full understanding of the subject discussed. However, many of the topics covered are accompanied by practical considerations that do not require extensive mathematical knowledge. The illustrations are purposely very simple and schematic, because they are oriented more towards the learning of physical phenomena than the detailed representation of the elements involved.
