Vehicle systems have represented the primary area of interest and application in the multibody dynamics community for a very long time. The complexities and diversity of such systems provide rich platforms for the development of new modeling theory and techniques, new computational approaches and methodologies, and new research directions in general. The literature accumulated over the years in treating various aspects of vehicle systems in a multibody dynamics context is vast and broad in topics covered. While it is not feasible to aim at creating a comprehensive volume of multibody dynamics studies for vehicle systems, by putting together this special issue, the editors would like to bring into the spotlight current related research efforts and advanced approaches. Thus, a collection of high quality technical papers discussing state-of-the-art research in multibody dynamics investigations, methods, algorithms, and other scientific tools with direct applications to a variety of...
