Ride and Handling

This course features automotive simulation techniques and the basics of vehicle dynamics.

Due to a faculty change at FZD, the course Ride and Handling will only offer e-learning material in the winter semester 22/23 (lecture and tutorial recordings of past years) and no scheduled lectures or consultations. Examinations in Ride and Handling will be take place as usual. Individual consultations on lecture and tutorial are possible on request. The next live lectures will be in the winter semester 23/24.
