13. Prerequisites  
14. Description of lectures
The analysis of the forces acting on the wheel of the vehicle is a function of modern wheel models, the static and dynamic geometric characteristics of the wheel for planning. Geometric design of wheel suspension, strength dimensioning of individual suspension elements (rods, arms, ball joints, rubber pads). Vibration analysis of the vehicle for the requirements of the design of the suspension, geometry and strength dimensioning of the elements of the springs (springs, shock absorbers, stabilizers, limiting elements). Dynamic testing of vehicle braking to determine design requirements, methods of dividing brake force per axle, designing the braking system in principle, geometry, strength, heat and flow geometry of each element. Based on dynamic analysis of steering, defining the starting data required for the design of the steering system, constructing the steering mechanism, geometric and strength dimensioning of each element (trapezoidal arm, track bar, steering wheel, steering wheel and shaft, ball joints).
