(I am not under 13, but trying to get round the fact that the normal review page does not seem to load on IE6)

I have read this book from my University library. I intend to buy it in a few months, when i start work.

It has a nice autobiography from the author, Olley. His life is interesting and he explains how he started as an engineer in the UK and was involved in projects very different from vehicles! The war had an effect on his family life and his work.

The technical content of the book is very deep. With 2 years of Automotive Engineering background, I struggled to understand all of it but partly because the load from the library didn't give me enough time to read all the book and also i couldn't write any notes on it...

The maths are definitely useful for anyone wishing to model vehicle dynamics. The technology used is a bit old but on the other hand only employees of Goodyear, Bridgestone, Michelin, Dunlop etc will really have in depth knowledge of tyre characteristics. Tyre information is something as engineers we know is lacking in the public domain. It's like knowing the head desing of Ferrari's latest F1 V10 engine. It's well hidden.

I recommend purchasing the book simply because it is too long to read from any library and if you leave it on your desk, you may end up using it more than those silly books on hot-rod chassis design which are a load of rubbish. Even I can tell that most chassis books have terrible design (and i'm only 22). On the other hand Olley's book does not go into finite element analysis or space-frame design. It is more to do with weight distributions, steering geometries, oversteer/understeer. Unfortunately, many books like this have a title which is not realistically a proper description.

Chassis Design: Principles and Analysis
by William F and Douglas L Milliken

This important book has a very special place, for the vast majority of the material has been taken directly from the previously unpublished writings of Maurice Olley. The book begins with Olley's reminiscences, the closest Maurice Olley came to writing an autobiography.

Olley (1889-1972) was born in Yorkshire England, grew up on the great Holyhead Road running through Wales. He describes his early impressions of the time when England was dominated by the steam engine. The idea of internal combustion took hold in France and Germany more quickly than in England, where its first general acceptance was as power for motorcycles. Still, young Olley developed a lifelong passion for the motorcar and had that goal firmly in mind during his educational years. After schooling, his first real job was in France for Henry Royce as a tool designer. His life would be devoted to automobiles, first with Rolls-Royce both in England and Springfield, Massachusetts, and finally with General Motors where he rose to head Chevrolet Research and Development. After retirement in the early 1960s, Olley wrote a series of monographs, covering his life's work in the field of chassis design.

By the late '60s the material was well on the way to publication when a very tight lid was suddenly placed on the project by GM's legal staff, in view of the enormous litigation issues then raging around the "Corvair affair". We owe the father, Bill and son, Doug, team of authors of this book a great debt of gratitude that finally, after more than thirty years under wraps, they gained permission to publish Olley's monographs.

It's an excellent reference still nowadays for the Chassis Engineer. It's a "must read book" for the serious Chassis Design Engineer.
