Special Issue of IJVD on Modeling and Simulation of Ground Vehicle Systems

Cover of IJVDFrom the preface: This special issue focuses on contributions from authors in the Automotive Research Center (ARC), a multi-university, US Army Center of Excellence, pursuing systems engineering of advanced and alternative powertrains for ground vehicles and methodologies to dramatically improve vehicle fuel economy, performance, reliability and survivability. Particular emphasis is given to progress in modelling and development of simulation tools that cover all areas pertinent to vehicle system analysis, including dynamics and control of vehicles, high performance structures and robust design, occupant safety, advanced high-efficiency engines, energy storage and hybrid propulsion systems. The simulation tools are complemented with methodologies for multidisciplinary design optimisation under uncertainty, estimation of vehicle parameters, characterisation of the subsystems and the vehicle environment and internet-distributed integration of complex systems.
