The student should be able to synthesize a reasonable solution to a given design problem, analyze the proposed solution, and judge its suitability. In order to achieve this, the objectives are: 1. To introduce the important aspects of tires and their effects on vehicle performance [1, 3, 5, 10] 2. To introduce steady state stability and control aspects of vehicle handling [1, 3, 5, 10]
