Vehicle dynamics

The Vehicle Dynamics research team deals with different aspects concerning the dynamic behaviour of vehicles, i.e., performance, handling, comfort, efficiency and NVH.

The research involves the main chassis systems (suspension, steering, braking, transmission and tire) as well as their evolution towards active configurations characterized by electronically controlled actuation.

The methodologies include theoretical and analytical studies, numerical modelling and simulation, and experimental activities through dedicated test benches and instrumented vehicles.

Automotive companies, both car manufacturers and suppliers, fund most of the research activity.
