THE AUTOMOTIVE CHASSIS, 2ND ED
Written for component and system engineers, this text provides an overview of chassis technology, from the requirements and design of tires through axle kinematics to steering, springing, and damper systems. Reimpell (formerly, automotive engineering, U. of Applied Science Cologne), Stoll (an engineer), and Betzler (chassis/simulation technology, University of Applied Science Cologne) explain the principles of vehicle and suspension design, the platform concept, four-wheel drive technology, suspension design, and the standards of ISO 8855 and SAE J 670. The first English translation appeared in 1995, published by Arnold and SAE; the second edition appeared in 2000, published by Elsevier's Butterworth at a much higher price. This SAE reprint of 2002 restores a decent price. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
