The conference on vehicle system dynamics brought together researchers from academic institutions and industrical research organizations discussing dynamic problems ranging from aerodynamic effects on bicycles to the suspension dynamics of ocean-going hovercrafts. Topics of discussion included energy problems facing the transportation industries; weight reduction of automobilies and its effect on vehicle motion behavior; the use of finite element method in impact dynamics and safety engineering; means of urban transportation; multi-purpose vehicles and multi-levered terrain vehicles.
