Self Study Program 77 – Skoda Geometry
Self Study Program 77 – Skoda Geometry PDF. In line with the trend of the current development of vehicles, the manufacturers must respond to the ever increasing demands on the driving characteristics. Even in the lower classes of vehicles, we encounter among other things, the independent multi-link rear suspension.
The demands on the driving stability and thereby also on the safety, the comfort and the driving dynamics are often in conﬂict with the needs of a small assembly room and especially with the low cost of production.
Modern types of chassis reﬂect the efforts which are undertaken to resolve the conﬂicting requirements on the low mass, yet ensuring a high strength of the suspension and at the same time a precise wheel guidance. As a result, aluminum alloys are increasingly and widely used, thus replacing the original steels.
Further options for improving the driving characteristics are offered, such as various electronic systems ABS, EDL, ESP, EBD, TCS, which have the task to ensure the optimum transfer of the driving and braking force onto the roadway, the desired behaviour in curves (in most cases mild understeer) etc.
