Eines vorweg, dieses Buch richtet sich an Ingenieure und Entwickler im Zweiradsektor. Ein technischer Leihe wird hier schon nach wenigen Seiten keinen gefallen mehr am Buch finden, da hier der Schwerpunkt auf Formeln und Modellierungen liegt. Prof. Cossalter vertieft sich mit diesem Buch in die Fahrphysiken des Motorrades wie kein anderes mir bekanntes Werk. Wer sich mit Simulationsthemen rund um das Motorrad befasst, sollte zugreifen. Vergleichbare Bücher kosten im Automobilbereich das Doppelt bis Dreifache.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Needs time and commitment but it is all there and readable ! 12. Februar 2007
Von Dr. Angelos Vorvolakos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am a professional Physicist so some of my remarks may be clouded by the fact that in principle at least all the related calculations are familiar to me.

I find the book by Vittore Cossalter as the ONLY serious and complete reference for the dynamics / kinematics of Motorcycles I have come across. The exposition is very readable and well presented and it has helped me sort out a lot of related issues that I have played around with through own calculations and computer simulations.

I would not recommend the book to people that hate maths as it is full of them (it is a technical book after all as it should be to cover the subject properly) but for anyone whose interests and capabilities go into the realm of motorcycle dynamics I consider it a must have.

I was especially interested in the tyre behaviour analysis (since this was the topic I was most unfamiliar with) but I would rate the whole of the book as top notch.

In a nutshell: If you like that kind of stuff, get it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Graduate level reading on motorcycles! 21. Februar 2011
Von Gearhead Mania - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Motorcycle Dynamics, 2nd Edition

After reading numerous books about motorcycling, authored by Keith Code, Lee Parks, David Hough, and Nick Ienatsch, I came across Motorcycle Dynamics written by Vittore Cossalter an Italian professor of applied mechanics. Doing a Google search revealed a whole university curriculum dedicated to the physics and theory behind motorcycles! As a gearhead and licensed professional engineer, I too have a passion for figuring out how things work.

First, I would consider books written by Code and Hough to be excellent foundations for those interested in riding motorcycles. The content is explained in simple layman's terms, with words like counter-steer and pivot steer, lean, and turn dominating the primary activities. With Cossalter's Motorcycle Dynamics, you are dealing more (much more) with the physics and theoretical aspect of motorcycles. Moment of inertia, torque, yaw, roll, angular momentum, gyroscopic effects, torsional stiffness, and a myriad of variables and equations are used to describe the events covered by Hough and Code. So in essence, I consider the books written by Code and Hough to be more of an undergraduate level - important and useful. Cossalter's book is more of a graduate level reading - important, useful, but not very easy to understand or directly apply into the real world without some background in physics, science, or engineering.

As an example, the first 7 chapters of Cossalter's Motorcycle Dynamics models the behavior and characteristics of motorcycles. From kinematics, tires, chassis dynamics, trim, vibration, to stability, it covers the theoretical/actual behavior of motorcycles in great detail with equations and references. The last chapter, Motorcycle Maneuverability and Handling, is what I consider the meat and potatoes of this book. It starts almost immediately discussing topics covered in the "undergraduate" series of books where the effect of wheelbase and trail are related to changes in directional stability. Counter-steering and dynamics testing are discussed in great detail, with graphs showing steering angle and steering torque to describe what happens at speed while taking a turn or entering a slalom.

Some might argue that Cossalter is using 1000 words to describe something that can be said using 5 words. I would disagree, because if you are looking for a Cliff's Notes version of motorcycles, you're in the wrong place. I bought Motorcycle Dynamics because I was curious as to WHY counter-steering is necessary and when it should be applied. Lee Parks did a terrific job of splitting the U-Turn technique from the counter-steering maneuvers, because direct steer is necessary for low speed turns (under say, 5-10 MPH). Parks kept the U-turn section last to prevent any confusion after spending chapters talking about the application of counter-steering.

Cossalter does provide simple relationships between real world events and the theoretical. In one scenario, he described how a rider planned to negotiate a right turn while traveling at a velocity of 20 m/s or about 45 MPH. The rider steers left, and the lateral force generated at the front tire contact point causes a yaw motion to the left, which begins a roll motion to the right. Then he follows up with diagrams and graphs to back up the verbal statements. This makes a lot of sense and inherently describes the science behind what was covered with Hough and Code's texts. It is unlikely the average rider would be interested in Motorcycle Dynamics, but to gearheads and engineers, Cossalter's book is definitely a mandatory purchase for one's library.

Overall: 5/5 stars

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent second edition of an excellent technical book 14. März 2007
Von R.B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I already had the first edition of the book and i wanted to have also the second one. But the book,that was already excellent in the first edition, now is even better. Translation has been improved and sections have been added to the vibration analysis and to the tyre modelling up-to-dating them. The book covers all the aspects of motorcycle dynamics. Formulas are well described even when difficult. Of course the book requires a strong knowledge of math and physic, but also "not-in-the-field" people can easily understand what is behind and applies formulas to perform hand calculation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE resource for understanding motorcycle dynamics 8. Mai 2007
Von Christopher J. Dean - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Vittore Cossalter has created an excellent launch platform for any detailed work in the area of motorcycle dynamics. I found this particularly useful from an engineer's perspective, however the language used is succinct enough for any attentive reader to obtain a well rounded understanding of the dynamics of the Motorcycle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book for understanding motorcycle dynamics if you have the background. 21. Februar 2010
Von RLD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As an avid longtime motorcyclist and mechanical engineer, I have been looking for a book like this that clearly and concisely explains the dynamics of motorcycles for many years. When the first edition of this book appeared, the price was rather high. The second edition is much less expensive and I bought it as soon as I learned that it was available. It is exactly the book I have been looking for. It assumes that you have a working knowledge of dynamics, calculus and ordinary differential equations. If you are a physics or engineering graduate with an interest in motorcycles, you will find it a great pleasure to read as I did; but if you are not, you will find it very difficult. Chapter 2 on tires is especially interesting and lays the basis for understanding the influence of tire slip on motorcycle dynamics in the subsequent chapters. We all know that tires have a great influence on motorcycle handling, this book shows how and why. I have one minor criticism; that is the use of centrifugal force in describing the dynamics of turning. It is not necessary to introduce this fictitious force which, as Newton's second law shows is just equal to the product of mass and normal acceleration. The essential point is that the normal accelerations generated by the lateral forces at the tire contact patches are what cause the motorcycle to follow a curved trajectory, it does not enhance understanding of the physics to include the centrifugal force. Nevertheless, those with the background to understand this book will already understand this point. This is not a do-it-yourself book and will probably not help to make you a better rider. It is written in a more casual style than a text book but with far more technical content than a mass audience work. The graphs are extremely well done and are very data rich. It will satisfy the intellectual curiosity of those of us interested in understanding the details of how motorcycles work and who have the background to do so. Many thanks to Professor Cossalter for writing this wonderful book.
