Special Issue on: “Performance and Dynamics of Multi-Wheeled and Tracked Military Vehicles”

Guest Editor: Dr Xiong Zhang, General Dynamics Land Systems – Canada

The aim of this special issue is to present a spectrum of emerging technologies applicable for the design and development of military vehicles and their subsystems or components. The issue focuses on the promotion and application of new concepts, approaches and pioneer techniques that lead to superior vehicle performance in terms of mobility, safety, ride quality, stability, functionality, reliability, durability, efficiency, as well as economy and impact on environment.

Subject Coverage
Topics of interest include but are not confined to:
  • Advanced military vehicle modelling
  • Intellectual control of off-road vehicles
  • Shock and vibration analysis of ground vehicle systems/components
  • Mobility study of multi-wheeled vehicles
  • Advanced suspension dynamics of multi-wheeled vehicles
  • Hybrid 8x8 vehicle systems
  • Advanced power-train system of ground vehicles
  • Braking/steering systems for ground vehicles
  • Virtual testing and conceptual design of ground vehicle systems
  • Suspensions and ride dynamics of ground vehicles
  • Fully active and semi-active control of ground vehicles
  • Modelling and simulation of tyre-soil interactions
  • Robotics and unmanned vehicles
