An expansion the Automotive Engineering print edition, this fully searchable electronic reference book of pages delivers content to meet all the main information needs of engineers working in vehicle design and development. Material ranges from basic to advanced topics from engines and transmissions to vehicle dynamics and modelling.
From , he was an assistant research engineer, associate research engineer, and research engineer. He was appointed assistant professor in and was promoted to associate professor in and professor in He was appointed professor of aerospace engineering in His research most recently has focused on electronic systems and devices that are applicable to all vehicles.
His particular emphasis has been on engine control applications, mathematical models for drive-train systems, computer-assisted diagnostics for electronically controlled engines, and failure detection systems. His work in these areas has substantially advanced the art of automotive electronics, and he is recognized as a world leader in this area. He served on the Hitachi Science Board, a distinction given to few U. He specializes in vehicle dynamics and safety teaching and research, and has worked with multibody systems applications in vehicle dynamics in industry and academia, publishing many papers on the topic.
Following 10 years with Richard Thomas and Baldwins Ltd. Experience included all aspects of material selection raging from sheet steel to aluminium and polymers together with a detailed knowlege of most processing aspects such as pressing, painting and welding. Corrosion prevention was a major feature of recent years and collaborative work with Oxford University helped optimise the use of zinc coated steels on current bodywork.
He has held senior positions in quality management with British Aerospace and Ferranti International and worked with such companies as General Motors, the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Bell Atlantic on their quality improvement programmes.
As well as delivering quality management and auditor training courses throughout the world, he has participated in various industry councils and committees, including the Institute of Quality Assurance. For the last 50 years he has held senior technical positions in companies, internationally involved in the design and testing of automotive and marine powertrains. His published works include a book on Project Management, and papers on subjects covering Dynamometry and the International Transfer of Technology.

My activities are concentrated on engineering consultancy work, in particular specialised short courses and expert witness cases in automotive engineering. However, I also retain strong academic links with the Universities of Leeds, Cranfield and Sunderland. My own specialism is in vehicle dynamics and control. I am author of over journal and conference papers in this subject area. Particular topics of interest have covered the ride, handling, safety, stability and braking of vehicles. I have worked extensively with industrial partners and applications have included passenger cars, land speed record vehicles, racing cars, SUVs, off-road vehicles and commercial vehicles. I am series editor for a textbook series on Automotive Engineering for Elsevier which now embraces 10 textbooks on a wide range of vehicle engineering and technology topics.
About this title A Choice Oustanding Academic Title The Encyclopedia of Automotive Engineering provides for the first time a large, unified knowledge base laying the foundation for advanced study and in-depth research. Through extensive cross-referencing and search functionality it provides a gateway to detailed but scattered information on best industry practice, engendering a better understanding of interrelated concepts and techniques that cut across specialized areas of engineering. Beyond traditional automotive subjects the Encyclopedia addresses green technologies, the shift from mechanics to electronics, and the means to produce safer, more efficient vehicles within varying economic restraints worldwide. Offers authoritative coverage of the wide-ranging specialist topics encompassed by automotive engineering An accessible point of reference for entry level engineers and students who require an understanding of the fundamentals of technologies outside of their own expertise or training Provides invaluable guidance to more detailed texts and research findings in the technical literature Developed in conjunction with FISITA, the umbrella organisation for the national automotive societies in 37 countries around the world and representing more than , automotive engineers 6 Volumes www.
