Automotive Engineering Fundamentals
This book arose from a need for an automotive engineering textbook that included analysis, as well as descriptions of the hardware. Specifically, several courses in systems engineering use the automobile as a basis. Additionally, many universities are now involved in collegiate design competitions such as the SAE Mini Baja and Formula SAE competitions.
This book should be helpful to such teams as an introductory text and as a source for further references. Given the broad scope of this topic, not every aspect of automotive engineering could be covered while keeping the text to a reasonable and affordable size.
