Encompassing the latest developments on tire mechanics, this definitive third edition combines theory, guidance, discussion and insight in one comprehensive reference.
In this well-known resource, the author, leading tire model expert Hans Pacejka, explains the relationship between operational variables, vehicle variables and tire modeling, taking you on a journey through the effective modeling of complex tire and vehicle dynamics problems.
- covers everything you need to know about pneumatic tires, and their impact on vehicle performance, including mathematic modeling and its practical application
- contains updated information on new and evolving tire models to ensure you can select the right model for your needs, apply it appropriately and understand its limitations
- was written by the acknowledged world authority on the topic and the name behind the most widely used tire model, Pacejka's 'Magic Formula', which is presented in this book
This book is the only reliable compilation of information on the subject and is the go-to resource for engineers and researchers focusing on tire and vehicle dynamics.
