Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

The overall aim of this course is to gain a better understanding of the road vehicle s systems and components from an anatomical point of view, as well as to serve as an introduction to some of the computational tools commonly used in the automotive industry. In addition, the topics of composite materials and group dynamics are introduced.

The goal of this course is to raise the students to the same level of preparedness regardless of their experiences in the past so that they can effectively continue more deeply into their studies.

Content

The course includes the following contents:

Guest lectures from representatives of various areas of the automotive industry
Lectures and labs on the different major systems and components that comprise a road vehicle (powertrain, suspension, electronics, etc)
Lectures on material composites
Lectures and seminars on group dynamics
Laboratory work on CAD, FEA, and CFD.

Literature

To be decided.

Examination

The examination involves a series of small written exams given throughout the course. Furthermore there are lab reports which must be completed. The course is weighed as follows:

2 cr/40% short exams on anatomy and materials
2 cr/40% final exam on guest lectures
1 cr/20% completed lab reports.
