Call for papers: Off-Road Vehicle Dynamics

A special issue of International Journal of Vehicle Design

This Special Issue aims at promoting the application of advanced concepts, approaches and pioneering techniques in research and development of off-road vehicle systems. Papers are invited on innovative analytical, computational and experimental investigations in design, dynamics and control of off-road vehicle systems, including agricultural machinery, mining and construction equipment, military and commercial vehicles, sports and recreational motors, and scientific exploration vehicles.

The specific topics of interest within the scope of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following technical areas:
  • Analytical and experimental study of vehicle-tyre-soil dynamics
  • Development and application of advanced control methodology for off-road vehicles
  • Subjective and objective evaluations of off-road vehicle performance
  • Closed-loop human driver and off-road vehicle systems
  • Novel suspension concepts and development for off-road vehicles
  • Advanced soil-tyre models and their applications in modelling vehicle-terrain systems
  • Soil mechanics, terrain topology modelling and characterization
  • Ergo-dynamics associated with off-road vehicles
  • Development of energy-efficient off-road vehicle systems
  • Development of special-purpose off-road vehicle systems
  • Modelling, dynamics and control of space rovers
  • Off-road racing vehicle dynamics
  • Wheeled vehicle mobility and ride quality over deformable terrain
