A leading and authoritative text for advancing ground vehicle mobility

Theory of Ground Vehicles, Fifth Edition presents updated and expanded coverage of the critical factors  affecting the performance, handling, and ride essential to the  development and design of road and off-road vehicles. 

Replacing  internal combustion engines with zero-emission powerplants in ground  vehicles to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions for curbing climate  change has received worldwide attention by both the vehicle industry and  governmental agencies. To enhance safety, traffic flow, and operating  efficiency of road transport, automated driving systems have been under  active development. With growing interest in the exploration of the  Moon, Mars, and beyond, research in terramechanics for guiding the  development of extraterrestrial rovers has been intensified. In this new  edition, these and other topics of interest in the field of ground  vehicle technology are explored, and technical data are updated. New  features of this edition include: 

  • Expanded coverage of the fundamentals of electric drives, hybrid electric drives, and fuel cell technology
  • Introduction to the classification and operating principles of the automated driving system and cooperative driving automation
  • Applications of terramechanics to guiding the development of extraterrestrial rovers
  • Elaboration on the approach to achieving the optimal operating efficiency of all-wheel drive off-road vehicles
  • Introduction to updated ISO Standards for evaluating vehicle ride

 An updated and comprehensive text and reference for both the educational and professional communities, Theory of Ground Vehicles, Fifth Edition will prove invaluable to aspiring and practicing engineers seeking to  solve real-world road and off-road vehicle mobility problems.
