Advances in Vehicle Design is an introduction to vehicle and body systems in the sense of providing readers with an insight into analytical methods given in a wide variety of published sources such as technical journals, conference papers, and proceedings of engineering institutions, for which a comprehensive list of references is provided. John Fenton distils and presents the best of this research and industry practice into an easily digestible, highly illustrated, and accessible form. Drawing on the available information, the author provides a well-structured and vital reference source for all automotive engineers.
