MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation.


Top 5% of the class will get a merit certificate. Course completion certificate will be provided to all students who complete the course. You will receive both e-verified and hard copy of your certificates.


1. Spring and Anti Roll bar selection based on vehicle targets.

In this project, you will be doing calculations to select the spring and anti-roll bar based for a 4WD sedan with a Mcpherson strut in the front and Multilink in the rear.

In this project you will use the given Vehicle level Targets to calculate suitable numbers for the selected subsystems, you will performing calculations for:

  • Spring Rates
  • Rear Ride frequency and flat ride plots
  • Anti-characteristics
  • Roll bar diameters

2. Roll bar selection and Understeer budget for a light sports vehicle

In this project, you are being assigned a task to select a suitable Rollbar for a light sports vehicle and come up with an understeer budget. The Rollbar diameter selection and the understeer budget should comply with vehicle level targets like Roll gradient and understeer gradient.

Use the given parameters to come up with a detailed excel sheet that gives the appropriate numbers of the roll bar selection and understeer budget.

  • Roll bar diameter
  • Roll bar stiffness
  • Tire stiffness plots
  • Understeer budget

Course Syllabus

Suspension Design

In this module, we will deal with the elasto-kinematic behavior that the suspension exhibits during wheel motion, and how this behavior can be quantified. You will learn about how the different components handle motion and load changes that occur in the system. Towards the end of this module, we will study the suspension architectures of some popular vehicles

  • Suspension kinematics
  • Steering kinematics
  • Load transfer and control
  • Suspension compliance
  • K&C rig testing
  • Suspension topologies of some popular vehicles

Tire modeling

This module will deal primarily with the force and moment generating mechanisms of tires. We will cover different mathematical models that can be used to capture tire behavior.

  • Tire structure
  • Tire nomenclature
  • Tire coordinate system
  • Mechanics of force and moment generation
  • Tire modeling in MATLAB
  • Tire testing and interpreting test results 

Vehicle ride

 In this module, we will look at how the suspension isolates the passenger compartment from various disturbances. We will also develop mathematical models to study the ride quality of vehicles

  • Excitation sources and road profile modeling in Matlab
  • Suspension isolation
  • Human tolerance to vibration
  • Quarter car and bounce-pitch ride models in MATLAB 

Vehicle handling

Here, we will focus on the directional response of the vehicle to driver commands. Mathematical models will be used to simulate handling behavior under steady state and transient conditions

  • Steady-state handling bicycle model in Matlab
  • Understeer, oversteer and neutral steer
  • Suspension effects on handling and understeer budget
  • Transient bicycle handling model
  • Rollover
  • Simulation techniques used to characterize handling

Advanced concepts

This module will provide an overview of some advanced concepts in this domain. The focus here is to not take a detailed analytical approach, rather introduce you to modern vehicle dynamics and the research that is being carried out in the fields of electronic chassis control and autonomous mobility.

  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Electronic stability control
  • Torque vectoring
  • Active suspension
  • Steer by wire
  • Autonomy and vehicle dynamics
  • Advances in simulation techniques
