An Introduction to Modern Vehicle Design starts from basic principles and builds up analysis procedures for all major aspects of vehicle and component design. Subjects of current interest to the motor industry - such as failure prevention, designing with modern material, ergonomics, and control systems - are covered in detail, with a final chapter discussing future trends in automotive design.
Extensive use of illustrations, examples, and case studies provides the reader with a thorough understanding of design issues and analysis methods.
