Vehicle Dynamics and Performance

Vehicle dynamics evaluations involve subjecting dampers, steer systems, tire systems and full vehicles to a set of inputs and measuring the outputs, as a means of characterizing how the specimen performs in a dynamic environment and how a component or subsystem influences overall vehicle ride, handling and performance. Some of these tests incorporate environmental chambers to evaluate how temperature or humidity changes influence the test specimen. Test results are typically input into computer models for validation purposes.
