  • Provides detailed examples of the applications of computer-aided methods to the development of high-mobility off-road vehicles and to product innovations
  • With problem sets provided for use by senior undergraduate and postgraduate students

Focusing on the study of vehicle-terrain interaction from the traction perspective, Terramechanics and Off-Road Vehicle Engineering, Second Edition provides aspiring and practicing engineers with a basic understanding of the critical factors affecting the mobility of off-road vehicles. Renewed enthusiasm for the exploration of the Moon, Mars and beyond shown by an increasing number of nations has given new impetus to the further development of terramechanics. This new edition covers its fundamentals and practical applications, alongside with the latest and emerging technologies for evaluating vehicle mobility on earth and on extraterrestrial bodies.

Written by internationally recognized leader in the field, Professor J.Y. Wong, this new edition is an important resource for all practicing engineers involved in the development and design of off-road vehicles for use in construction, agriculture, forestry, recreation, and military sectors and in planetary exploration, as well as for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students specializing in the subject area.
