Main objectives

To promote the development of the Science of Vehicle Dynamics, a discipline that is based upon the theory of motion of ground based vehicle systems, and to encourage engineering applications of this field of science.

To inform scientists and engineers on the current state-of-the-art in the field of Vehicle Dynamics, to provide a mechanism to communicate original contributions in this field among scholars and applied scientists and to motivate scientists and engineers in related fields to contribute to its body of knowledge.

To broaden contacts among persons and organisations of different countries engaged in scientific research and development in the field of Vehicle Dynamics and related fields, and to promote free and informal exchange of ideas and results. The Association does not exist to further any commercial goal.

Biennial symposia are held at selected locations around the world. The symposia provide a framework for free and informal exchange of ideas and results. The symposium proceedings have contributed greatly to a better understanding of ground vehicle system dynamics and related problems.

IAVSD aims to operate at the highest possible scientific and technical level.

The Journal Vehicle System Dynamics, International Journal of Vehicle Mechanics and Mobility, is designated as the official organ publishing the transactions of the Association.

IAVSD is a not for profit organisation and affiliated with the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) and other scientific and engineering societies, which provide essential support from theoretical and applied engineering viewpoints.
