Hollis, Room A232, phone: 410-6319, e-mail: [email protected] Lectures: MW: 12:55 p.m. - 1:45 p.m., Room A105 W: 2:00 p.m. - 2:50 p.m., Room B114 Office Hours: See Dr. Hollis Home page, http://www.eng.fsu.edu/~hollis Test: Monday, October 3 Final: Friday, December 16, 7:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Catalog Description Prerequisites: EML3014C, EML3018C This is an introductory course in vehicle design concentrating primarily on vehicle dynamics. In particular it examines the primary features of vehicle design that relate to performance: suspension, steering, chassis, and tires. It uses the latest in industry standard software to examine the various design parameters influencing vehicle performance and handling.

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]
