Introduction & Effective Metrics for Vehicle Dynamics.
Vehicle system, subsystem and piece-part metrics used to link vehicle dynamics to vehicle system design and development: bounce frequencies, lateral acceleration gain, understeer gradient, roll gradient, roll stiffness, etc.
Brake system Anatomy and Architecture
Braking Dynamics: Braking Forces, Weight transfer, Centre of Gravity, Brake force distribution, stability, Pedal force gain, Brake proportioning and Braking efficiency.
Brake System Performance Prediction
Stopping Distance -- Actual vs. magazine; Contributions of Subsystems; Effects of Driver.
Thermal management -- Conservation of Energy; Design for max speed vs. high use
Brake Balance and System Output Calculations for different Conditions
Anti-lock Braking Systems & EBD
Performance Panic brake assist.
