Description: The second edition of a bestseller, this book applies basic dynamics concepts to vehicle dynamics and stability. It covers a wide range of vehicles - autos and other ground vehicles, railroad locomotives and cars, and aerospace vehicles. The author presents and develops mathematical models with numerous worked examples and careful explanations brought in to explain and demonstrate the equations of motion; and applied engineering situations to show practical applications. It includeschapter problems and a Solutions Manual is available to qualified adopting professors. Bond graph methods are covered in an appendix.
