Course content
AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING - THEORY and ADVANCED THEMES The subject includes topics focused on the systems of the vehicle and its parts. Specification (thematic destination) will be given with respect to the theme of the dissertation in the individual study plan. Overview main themes: Theory of vehicle, mechanics of driving and vehicle stability. Construction vehicles and driving characteristics - vehicle model and simulation driving: - handling vehicles, mechanics driving, force effects and the balance of power, - identification of force effects: modeling & simulations, experiments and measurements, - controllability vehicle straight driving and cornering, - stability of the vehicle while driving (under various operating conditions) - the effect of geometric, weight and others parameters on vehicle driveability.

Learning outcomes
AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING - THEORY and ADVANCED THEMES Objective: Study course is designed for doctoral candidates. To contribute to the expansion of knowledge in the study area and provide new insights for the development of the doctoral thesis. The course aims to provide students with information and knowledge on the structure and properties of the vehicles, their control and operational processes. Selected chapters can be oriented eg. To: - drive ability and driving dynamics, driving stability, - construction vehicles and vehicle systems (braking systems etc.), - the composition and process control circuits, - modeling and simulation.
Students obtain knowledge in accordance with requirements and course programme.
Prerequisites
Prerequisites: The prerequisite is the knowledge of the main principles of mechanics (esp. kinematics and dynamics), as well as basic knowledge about the construction of vehicles.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral exam, Oral presentation of self-study

Completion of the course assumes the execution subject test.Part of the preparation for the test subject is solving the task at hand - a smaller project.
