Vehicle/Tire/Road Dynamics: Handling, Ride, and NVH presents the connection between NVH and conventional vehicle dynamics where both tire and road play a key role. In this book, there is a chapter for handling dynamics that provides an introduction to ride dynamics and a chapter for ride dynamics that provides an introduction to NVH, presenting better coherence and synergy between these major areas of vehicle/tire dynamics. Accompanying the fundamental theories, case studies are given to facilitate comprehension. In addition to the experimental implementations, the state-of-the-art approaches to simulating vehicle/tire dynamics are presented from the viewpoint of both industry and academia.
This new book bridges the gap for experts in tire or pavement NVH (also tire-pavement interaction noise) and those who are experts in vehicle dynamics. Conventional vehicle dynamics (e.g., handling/braking/cornering) is focused on low-frequency performance while NVH (noise/vibration/harshness) is focused on high-frequency performance. There is also another area called "ride" (comfort/stability) which focuses on mid-frequency.
