Most of the problems associated with the safety, economy, and overall quality of road transportation are affected by the characteristics of both roads and vehicles and by the manner in which these two dynamic systems interact. Unlike other publications that deal with either vehicles or roads, STP 1225 places equal emphasis on the vehicle and the roadway.
16 peer-reviewed papers written by top researchers in the field cover:
Modeling and Simulation of Vehicle Dynamics and Vehicle-Road Dynamic Interaction
Laboratory and Field Tests of Vehicle-Induced Pavement Ladings
Ride Quality and Road Roughness
Advances in Vehicle Suspension Design and Dontrol
Noise Emission due to Vehicle-Tire-Road Interaction
and Fuel Efficiency and Rolling Resistance.
