Aims of the course:
In this course, students will learn about construction of individual functional nodes of motor vehicles. This concerns above all chassis, steering systems of wheel and caterpillar vehicles, brake systems and cabs. Attention is paid also to power balance, losses and efficiency. Final knowledge of students should involve orientation in design and structure of individual functional groups and capability to evaluate utility values of individual types of automobiles (including economic parameters of their operation.
