This subject is concerned with the movements of vehicle on a road surface. The movements of interest are acceleration, braking, ride and turning. Dynamic behavior is determined by the forces imposed on the vehicles from the tires, gravity and aerodynamics. Dynamics is the branch of Theory of Machine which deals with the forces and their effects acting on the components of machine so first chapter is related to introduction to theory of machine. The rest course is designed to provide understanding about effects of various unbalanced forces, its effects on the various components of vehicle and method to balance that unbalanced forces for getting smooth operation and long life of the vehicle. This course also aims to build higher level cognitive skill of future technicians for analyzing vehicle performance against various resistances acting on it during operation, vibrations and its effects with respect to ergonomics of the vehicle. The knowledge of this subject is essential to design aerodynamics shapes of car body, to calculate equivalent weight and maximum acceleration, desired power to propel the vehicle.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Explain basic terminology related theory of machine and vehicle dynamics with their appropriate examples
ii. Solve numerical problems of Rotating mass or Reciprocating mass balancing in the same or different planes applying graphical and/or analytical method.
iii. Identify causes of vibration and factors affecting human comfort in a vehicle
iv. Derive and apply equation of true rolling condition for solving numerical
