Then students give presentations on topics they may choose from a list including tires, vehicle suspension, braking of vehicles, longitudinal and lateral stability, cornering, ride comfort, dynamics of railroad vehicles, dynamics of motorcycles, trucks and heavy vehicles, aerodynamics, vehicle accident reconstruction, driver behaviour and control.

Teaching methods

Lectures on selected topics of vehicle dynamics.

Mode of examination

Written and oral

Additional information

A similar course (LVA-Nr. 303.016) is offered, which is held in German language. An excursion will be organized, usually at the end of the semester, to a firm that works in the field of vehicle dynamics.
