Course Aim
- Being able to formulate and analyse basic cases within the field of dynamics - Knowing conceptions within vehicle dynamics, and corresponding vital components - Being able to model, simulate and analyse vehicle dynamical systems

The scope of each part of the course is given in %. Theory of vehicle dynamics (95%) - conceptions within vehicle dynamics • Suspension (Camber-/Caster angle, “Toe in” etc.) • Driving rope • Complete vehicle - Free and forced vibrations - Harmonic- and base excitation - Multiple degrees of freedom systems - Geared systems - Vehicle stability - Laboration (5%)

The education consist of lectures, lessons and a laboration. In order to practice the ability of problem solving and simulations, the students shall solve some problems as well as conduct a laboration.

Written exam and approved laboration

The course cannot be part of the degree together with the course M0015T.
