The papers in this collection are to provide a forum for presentations on steering and suspension related topics as it applies to ground vehicles. Papers address new approaches as well as advances in application of steering, suspension related technologies.
This technical paper collection is focused on vehicle dynamics and controls using modeling and simulation, and experimental analysis of passenger cars, heavy trucks, and wheeled military vehicles. The papers address active and passive safety systems to mitigate rollover, yaw instability and braking issues; driving simulators and hardware-in-the-loop systems; suspension kinematics and compliance, steering dynamics, advanced active suspension technologies; and tire force and moment mechanics.
This technical paper collection is intended to include papers that will discuss and promote the recent advances in the modeling and analysis of commercial vehicle chassis, suspension, and tire modeling and simulation. Topics include, but are not limited to: commercial vehicle dynamics; chassis control devices such as ABS, traction control, yaw/roll stability control, and potentially the interplay with suspension control; chassis modeling and simulation to study and resolve issues pertaining to ride comfort, crash/deformation, and safety structure; suspension modeling and simulation studies covering passive and active control methodologies; and tires which would cover new and/or improved modeling techniques.
The 12 papers in this technical paper collection discuss technologies that address the treatment of engine exhaust emissions to meet commercial vehicle requirements. The scope covers developments in catalysis, materials, controls, and integration with the complete engine/vehicle system.
This technical paper collection features 10 papers dedicated to chassis, suspension, and tire modeling and simulation developed for and applied to vehicle systems. Topic covered include vehicle modeling, vehicle dynamic simulation analysis (handling, ride comfort, mobility, durability, etc.), and vehicle design.
The 30 papers in this technical paper collection focus on heavy tire modeling/testing and evaluation; vehicle dynamics; wide based tires, sustainability and maintenance; air suspension, off-road chassis and suspension; hybrid drive and chassis; all wheel/multi-wheel drive vehicle dynamics and performance; testing and experimental analysis of chassis and suspension; and advanced chassis control and rollover.
