Tire and Vehicle Dynamicsby Hans Pacejka
Synopses & Reviews
The definitive book on tire mechanics by the acknowledged world expert
Covers everything you need to know about pneumatic tires and their impact on vehicle performance, including mathematic modeling and its practical application
Written by the acknowledged world authority on the topic and the name behind the most widely used model, Pacejka s Magic Formula
Updated with the latest information on new and evolving tire models to ensure you can select the right model for your needs, apply it appropriately and understand its limitations
In this well-known resource, leading tire model expert Hans Pacejka explains the relationship between operational variables, vehicle variables and tire modeling, taking you on a journey through the effective modeling of complex tire and vehicle dynamics problems.
Covering the latest developments to Pacejka's own industry-leading model as well as the widely-used models of other pioneers in the field, the book combines theory, guidance, discussion and insight in one comprehensive reference.
While the details of individual tire models are available in technical papers published by SAE, FISITA and other automotive organizations, Tire and Vehicle Dynamics remains the only reliable collection of information on the topic and the standard go-to resource for any engineer or researcher working in the area.

Dr Hans Pacejka is widely known as THE authority on tire models and Tire and Vehicle Dynamics is the standard resource for all engineers and researchers working in the area. Including not only Pacejka's own industry-leading model but also those of his peers and other pioneers in the field, the book provides comprehensive discussion and theory not found elsewhere.
With Pacejka's tire model continuing to develop and evolve, new editions of the book attract great interest from across the automotive industry and this third edition is no exception. As well as covering new developments in vehicle dynamics and the latest additions to the Pacejka model, this new edition includes SAE nomenclature and offers all equations and models from the book in downloadable spreadsheet format for ease of application and use.
