"This book covers one and a quarter century of the automobile, conceived as a cultural history of its technology, aimed at engineering students and all those who wish to have a concise introduction into the basics of automotive technology and its long-term development. Its approach is systemic and includes the behavior of drivers, producers, nonusers, victims, and other "stakeholders" as well as the discourse around mobility. Nowadays, students of innovation prefer the term co-evolution, emphasizing the parallel and mutually dependent development of technology and society. This acknowledges the importance of contingency and of the impact of the past upon the present, the very reason why The Evolution of Automotive Technology: A Handbook looks at car technology from a long-term perspective. Often we will conclude that the innovation was in the (re)arrangement of existing technologies. Since its beginnings, car manufacturers have brought a total of 1 billion automobiles to the market. We are currently witnessing an explosion toward the second billion. Looking back, we can see this history evolve through five distinctive phases: Emergence (1880-1917), Persistence (1917-1940), Exuberance (1945-1973), Doom (1973-2000), Confusion (2001-present). The Evolution of Automotive Technology: A Handbook helps us understand how these phases impacted society and, in turn, shows us how car technology was influenced by car users themselves."--

Initially, the only electric loads encountered in an automobile were for lighting and the starter motor. Today, demands on performance, safety, emissions, comfort, convenience, entertainment, and communications have seen the working-in of seemingly innumerable advanced electronic devices. Consequently, vehicle electric systems require larger capacities and more complex configurations to deal with these demands. Covering applications in conventional, hybrid-electric, and electric vehicles, the Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives provides a comprehensive reference for automotive electrical systems. This authoritative handbook features contributions from an outstanding international panel of experts from industry and academia, highlighting existing and emerging technologies. Divided into five parts, the Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives offers an overview of automotive power systems, discusses semiconductor devices, sensors, and other components, explains different power electronic converters, examines electric machines and associated drives, and details various advanced electrical loads as well as battery technology for automobile applications. As we seek to answer the call for safer, more efficient, and lower-emission vehicles from regulators and consumer insistence on better performance, comfort, and entertainment, the technologies outlined in this book are vital for engineering advanced vehicles that will satisfy these criteria.

Handbook of Automotive Design Analysis examines promising approaches to automotive design analysis. The discussions are organized based on the major “technological divisions of motor vehicles: the transmission gearbox and drive line; steering and suspension; and the automobile structure. This handbook is comprised of three chapters; the first of which deals with transmission gearboxes and drive lines. This chapter describes manual-shift gearbox design, synchromesh mechanisms, hydrokinetic automatic gearboxes, drive-line main assemblies, and drive-line losses. The next chapter is about vehicle suspensions and optimum handling performance, with emphasis on two categories of handling of vehicles: steady-state turning (or cornering) and the transient state. The behavior of the steering system, ride parameters, and the design and installation of spring elements are discussed. The third and final chapter focuses on the application of structural design analysis to the automotive structure. After explaining the fundamentals of structural theory in car body design, this book presents the analysis of commercial vehicle body and chassis. Throughout the book, maximum use is made of line-drawings and concise textural presentation to provide the working designer with an easy assimilable account of automotive design analysis. This book will be useful to young automotive engineers and newcomers in automotive design.

This book arose from a need for an automotive engineering textbook that included analysis as well as descriptions of the hardware. Specifically, several courses in systems engineering use the automobile as the basis. Additionally, many universities are now involved in collegiate design competitions such as the SAE Mini Baja and Formula SAE competitions. This book should be helpful to such teams as an introductory text and as a source for further references. Given the broad scope of this topic, not every aspect of automotive engineering could be covered while keeping the text to a reasonable and affordable size. This book was written for engineering students from varied backgrounds to include mechanical, aeronautical, electrical and astronomical engineering. Thus, certain topics that would be a review for mechanical engineering students may be an introduction to electrical engineers, and vice versa. Furthermore, because the book is aimed at students, it sometimes has been necessary to give only outline or simplified explanations. In such cases, numerous references have been made to sources of other information. Practicing engineers should also find this book useful when they need an overview of the subject, or when they are working on particular aspects of automotive engineering that are new to them.

A Clear Outline of Current Methods for Designing and Implementing Automotive Systems Highlighting requirements, technologies, and business models, the Automotive Embedded Systems Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of existing and future automotive electronic systems. It presents state-of-the-art methodological and technical solutions in the areas of in-vehicle architectures, multipartner development processes, software engineering methods, embedded communications, and safety and dependability assessment. Divided into four parts, the book begins with an introduction to the design constraints of automotive-embedded systems. It also examines AUTOSAR as the emerging de facto standard and looks at how key technologies, such as sensors and wireless networks, will facilitate the conception of partially and fully autonomous vehicles. The next section focuses on networks and protocols, including CAN, LIN, FlexRay, and TTCAN. The third part explores the design processes of electronic embedded systems, along with new design methodologies, such as the virtual platform. The final section presents validation and verification techniques relating to safety issues. Providing domain-specific solutions to various technical challenges, this handbook serves as a reliable, complete, and well-documented source of information on automotive embedded systems.

This handbook dicussess tyre-road contact forces generated by heavy vehicles covering their influence on road surface and bridge response and damage, as well as ways of regulating and improving vehicles so as to minimize road damage.;The main incentive for understanding vehicle-road interaction is the possibility of reducing the road damage caused by heavy vehicles and the very high associated costs. This may be achieved by highway authorities, through improved design and construction of roads; by government agencies, through regulations intended to encourage the use of more "road-friendly" vehicles; or by vehicle engineers, through design of improved vehicle configurations and suspensions, which minimize road damage.;The book provides a unified mechanistic approach to the entire subject, covering vehicle dynamics; dynamic tyre forces; weigh-in-motion; pavement and bridge response; damage mechanisms of paving materials; vehicle-guideway interaction; suspension design to minimize road damage; and assessing road damaging potential of vehicles for regulatory purposes. It includes 25 literature reviews, covering topics from asphalt deformation to weigh-in-motion, and citing over 500 references. In addition, it discusses both the fundamental mechanics of the mechanical and civil engineering systems, as well as practical and implementation issues.
