Chassis Design

Milliken Research Associates Inc-William F. Milliken, Douglas L. Milliken
  • Book
  • R-206
Published 2002-02-01 by SAE International in United States

Chassis Design: Principles and Analysis is based on Olley's technical writings, and is the first complete presentation of his life and work. This new book provides insight into the development of chassis technology and its practical application by a master. Many examples are worked out in the text and the analytical developments are grounded by Olley's years of design experience.

Moment Method - A Comprehensive Tool for Race Car Development

Milliken Research Associates, Inc.-William F. Milliken, Douglas L. Milliken
Team Lotus Ltd.-Peter G. Wright
Published 1994-12-01 by SAE International in United States
The MRA Moment Method computer program automates an original approach to the analysis of race car handling. For a given speed and power/braking condition, the computer solution covers the full maneuvering envelope and presents the results graphically in one figure. The model is based on a comprehensive nonlinear vehicle representation utilizing tire, chassis, and aerodynamic input data as available to race car designers and developers. The paper will first explain and illustrate the Moment Method in general terms, with some graphical examples.The ability of the technique to model the behavior of an F.1 car traversing a small bump in mid-corner on a Grand Prix circuit is then reviewed. The results correlate well with the driver comments relative to changes in directional stability (plow/spin) as the car pitches over the bump. It also correlates well with the lateral acceleration/speed that the driver is willing to use in this corner.

Race Car Vehicle Dynamics

Milliken Research Associates Inc-Douglas L. Milliken
Milliken Research Associates Inc.-William F. Milliken
  • Book
  • R-146
Published 1994-12-01 by SAE International in United States

Written for the engineer as well as the race car enthusiast, Race Car Vehicle Dynamics includes much information that is not available in any other vehicle dynamics text. Truly comprehensive in its coverage of the fundamental concepts of vehicle dynamics and their application in a racing environment, this book has become the definitive reference on this topic. Although the primary focus is on the race car, the engineering fundamentals detailed are also applicable to passenger car design and engineering.

Active Suspension

Milliken Research Associates, Inc.-William F. Milliken
Published 1988-04-01 by SAE International in United States
This paper defines an active suspension and gives a brief history of the development of the LOTUS system, the only successful fully-active embodiment to date. The modal approach and overall system are described. The performance and potential of active suspension relative to the conventional suspension is discussed. Off-road applications are reviewed. The paper concludes with a statement on the future of generalized active control.

The Static Directional Stability and Control of the Automobile

Calspan Corporation-Roy S. Rice
Consulting Engineer-Fred Dell'Amico
Published 1976-02-01 by SAE International in United States
An approach to the study of static stability and control of the automobile, that is based on a concept of tethered vehicle testing using a yaw constraint, is described. The supporting theory, however, stands alone as a method of analysis, Graphical methods are developed in which sideforce, yaw moment, and lateral acceleration coordinates define performance plots. These plots reveal certain well-known steady-state performance parameters as well as a new one that defines static stability quantitatively. The theory is presented for the linear automobile with tire sideforce saturation but is applicable, by testing or computer simulation, to the non-linear case.
