1) Introduction

2) Tire Road Interaction

3) Vertical Dynamics

4) Longitudinal Dynamics

5) Lateral Dynamics

6) Driving Behavior of Single Vehicles

The short course is based on the textbook 

"Road Vehicle Dynamics - Fundamentals and Modeling, CRC Press 2012".

It begins with an overview of units and quantities, terminology and definitions.

Then,  the tire road interaction is described on the basis of an easy-to-use tire model.

The main part of the short course focuses on the fundamentals in vehicle dynamics in vertical, longitudinal, and lateral directions using simple model approaches to examine the effects of the suspension forces and the suspension kinematics.

The short course concludes with typical results of standard driving maneuvers.
