Shock and Vibration in Transportation Engineering

Description

Shock and vibration phenomena play an important role in a wide range of mechanical systems, especially in transportation engineering. Shock, vibration, and vibration-induced noise affect the driver, passengers, and the vehicle’s subunits. Vibrations reduce the efficiency of transport processes and degrade the transport safety and comfort. Traffic induced vibrations are a common source of environmental nuisance as they may cause malfunctioning of sensitive equipment and discomfort to people and may damage buildings and infrastructure. Shock, vibration and vibration-induced noise comprise a major part of the ride quality and comfort in terms of sensations of passengers. Vibration signals serve as an ample source of information on the technical state of the powertrain and the suspension and are commonly employed in diagnostic systems. Modal analysis of the vehicle body plays an important role to the safety, comfort, and the stability of the ride. Shock and vibration analysis in the area of transportation engineering still represents a serious challenge to researchers, engineers, and constructors.

This special issue is dedicated to the most recent advances in the research of shock and vibration in the field of transportation engineering. We invite scientists and investigators to contribute original research and review articles, which address the topics of the special issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Vehicle’s structural vibration, modal analysis, and applications
  • Shock absorbers and suspension dynamics
  • Powertrain, gearbox vibration, and fault diagnosis
  • Road surface impact to ride comfort and stability
  • Vehicle’s internal and external noise and acoustic comfort
  • Vehicle’s crash tests, dynamics, and safety—computational and experimental tests
  • Impact of transport induced noise and vibration to the environment
