By Prof. Dr. Giancarlo Genta, Prof. Dr. Lorenzo Morello (auth.)

The automobile Chassis is the results of 20 years of expertise: at the one hand from the adventure of educating classes resembling car Mechanics, automobile approach layout, Chassis layout to engineering scholars; nonetheless from the layout perform of car and chassis elements in a wide car corporation.

This paintings is addressed basically to scholars of car engineering and secondarily to all technicians and architects operating during this box. it's also addressed to all fans who're trying to find a technical guide.

The textual content is subdivided in volumes. the 1st one bargains with the car chassis componenst, such as

· a constitution, often a ladder framework, in a position to hold all of the closing parts of the vehicle;

· the suspensions for the mechanical linkage of wheels with the framework;

· the wheels and their tires;

· the guidance procedure for altering wheel angles in accordance with automobile path;

· the brake procedure for lowering velocity or preventing the vehicle;

· the transmission for making use of engine torque to the using wheels.

The moment quantity bargains with the automobile chassis as a method, learning the way it affects car functionality and working intimately with mathematical types worthwhile for the layout and research of the vehicle.

HISTORICAL EVOLUTION be used. Undesired motion of the axle in the longitudinal direction is avoided through the use of two dedicated thrust beams. A convenient suspension should not only have a deformable elastic member, but also a damping element; otherwise a permanent oscillation of the sprung mass could take place as a result of an external force input. This cannot actually occur, because of internal friction; nevertheless numerous oscillations could be produced around the static position. With leaf springs this problem was not addressed for some time, because of the high value of internal friction due to the relative motion of leaves; on the contrary, every effort was made to improve leaf lubrication in order to avoid annoying squeaks and permanent sticking because of oxidation.

A drawing of this suspension is shown in Fig. 17. We would like to point out that the elastic element is integrated with the lower arm and is still made with a transversal leaf spring; as a matter of fact many manufacturers were not keen to abandon leaf springs. The reasons were many, chief among them reliability, but we can also see in this application that the leaf spring integrates the function of two elements: the arms and the spring. The reliability of the production process was likewise important and, last but not least, the existing investments for a high volume of production.

Synthetic enamels shortened the painting time by an order of magnitude and made a better integration of body and chassis fabrication possible. The organization of the production cycle did not change greatly because of tradition, and because customers still requested special bodies that needed to be assembled on a finished chassis. The integration of chassis and body manufacturing was developed primarily in the United States and imitated in Europe by major manufacturers, beginning in the 1920s. The frame that is the bearing structure of the chassis had to carry all mechanical components, the complete body and payload.
