"An indispensable companion to every engineer working in vehicles system dynamics"--Prof. P. Lugner, Editor-of-Chief for the International Journal of Vehicle System Dynamics "Pacejka (Delft U. of Technology, the Netherlands) updates the 2006 edition of his 2002 textbook and reference on modeling the dynamic behavior of inflated tires as components of vehicles. Readers are assumed to be students or practicing mechanical engineers, and the exercises require standard tools of the trade. His topics include basic tire modeling considerations, the theory of steady-state slip force and moment generation, single-contact-point transient tire models, the dynamic tire response to short road unevennesses, and motorcycle dynamics."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 264
