Abstract: Computer-aided engineering (CAE) in vehicle dynamics consists of three subsystems, namely measurement, evaluation and prediction. It is important that each sub-system evolves in harmony with the others to ensure system co-ordination. Some remarkable attempts at using this CAE system are described here, such as the measurement of steady-state cornering, the evaluation of transient response with steering input, and prediction using full-vehicle models. The CAE approach will penetrate the motor vehicle industry at a high pace, and will contribute to the development and enhancement of suspension technology.

Keywords: computer-aided engineering; CAE; steady-state cornering; transient response; vehicles dynamics; vehicle suspension.
