Prerequisite
Fundamentals of I. C. Engines, Theory of Machine and Elementary of Machine Design
Rationale
Subject is designed to provide understanding about the various parts of the automobile systems. This course aims to build higher level skill to future engineers for studying different types of transmission and suspension systems. The knowledge of this subject is essential to calculate the resistances during motion, power required for acceleration and constant velocity motions, braking force and engine characteristics.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand the various vehicle classification and its layouts.
2. Understand the different types of suspension systems.
3. Understand the functions of different types of clutches and brakes.
4. Understand the types of gear boxes and transmission systems.
5. Understand the steering requirements and types of front axle.
6. Understand the performance of vehicle.
7. Understand the types of wheel rims and tyres with their specifications.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
