Automotive technicians and students need a firm grasp of science and technology in order to fully appreciate and understand how mechanisms and systems of modern vehicles work. Automotive Science and Mathematics presents the necessary principles and applications with all the examples and exercises relating directly to motor vehicle technology and repair, making it easy for automotive students and apprentices to relate the theory back to their working practice. The coverage of this book is based on the syllabus requirements of the BTEC First in Vehicle Technology, BTEC National in Vehicle Repair and Technology, and the IMI Certificate and Diploma in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair, but will help all automotive students and apprentices at levels 2 and 3 and up to and including HNC/HND, foundation and first degree with their studies and in achieving the Key Skill 'Application of Number' at levels 2 and 3. The book is designed to cater for both light and heavy vehicle courses. Full worked solutions of most exercises are available as a free download for lecturers only from http://textbooks.elsevier.com. Allan Bonnick is a motor vehicle education and training consultant and was formerly Head of Motor Vehicle Engineering, Eastbourne College. He is the author of several established automotive engineering textbooks.

The selected papers presented here emphasize the involvement of engineering science and mathematical modelling in rapidly solving complex problems which arise in the automotive industry. Chapters review the analysis of vehicle dynamics and control by automatic software generation and algebraic manipulation codes. Authors also discuss the application of control theory to four-wheel steering, active and semi-active suspensions, continuously variable transmission, and dynamometer control. Further chapters review the modelling of acoustical phenomena in the context of automotive noise, computer-induced changes in the artistic rendering of design elements, and the mathematical definition of surface features such as pockets, channels, and ribs. There are also chapters on the accurate and realistic prediction of air-flow and temperature characteristics to aid engine design, the simulation of flame propagation and knock, and using component models to predict vehicle heating and cooling. The final four chapters discuss finite element analysis of anisotropic deformation and its use in, for example, analyzing pressing or stamping operations; the sophisticated thermomechanical modelling of electrical components; and using well-tried algorithms to predict fatigue, and thus produce non-failing components. The volume will be an important source of up-to-date information for applied mathematicians, engineers, and researchers in the automotive industry, as well as for advanced students in engineering and mathematics.
