In addition to gathering the most comprehensive information on automotive engineering technology, editors Hans-Hermann Braess and Ulrich Seiffert focus on balancing theory and practice and ensure they are communicated in a synergistic manner. Because of this desirable balance, more than 40 well-known authorities from the automotive and supplier industries engaged as contributors, and - although this text is based primarily on the writings of German authors - the global nature of the automobile industry ensures that its contents have worldwide applicability.
If you are an engineer or automotive specialist who seeks to expand his or her knowledge, or a technically interested person, student, and non-technical layman who wishes to learn more about the modern automobile and its systems, this handbook is the reliable source for day-to-day advice and information.
