In this paper, the enhancement of vehicle stability and handling is investigated by control of the active geometry suspension system (AGS). This system could be changed through control of suspension mounting point’s position in the perpendicular direction to wishbone therefore the dynamic is alternative and characteristics need to change. For this purpose, suitable controller needs to change mounting point’s position in limit area. Adaptive fuzzy control able to adjust stability and handling characteristics in all conditions. Also, simple controller such as proportional-integral-derivative (PID) versus adaptive fuzzy have been used that submit intelligent controllers. The three of freedom model (3DOF) in vehicle handling is validated with MATLAB and CarSim software. The results show that the steady state response of the adaptive fuzzy controller has been closed to desired yaw and roll angle has been enhanced about %20. In cases of lateral velocity and side slip angle have the same condition that it shows the stability has been improved. The control effort of PID needs to change very high that this response is not good physically, while control effort in adaptive fuzzy is less than 50 mm.

In this paper, the optimization of the suspension system’s parameters is performed using a combined Taguchi and TOPSIS method, in order to improve the car handling and ride comfort. The car handling and ride comfort are two contradictory dynamic indices; therefore, to improve both car handling and ride comfort, there is a need for compromising between these two indices. For this purpose, the criteria affecting these two are first identified. The lateral acceleration and the body roll angle were used to evaluate the handling, and the RMS of vertical acceleration of the vehicle body was used to evaluate the ride comfort. The design factors including stiffness of springs and damping coefficient of dampers in the front and rear suspension system were also taken into account. On this basis, the results obtained from the vehicle’s motion in the DLC test were evaluated in the CarSim software. Then, the ideal tests were identified using the combined entropy and TOPSIS technique; this method has been proposed for managing the handling and ride comfort criteria. Finally, the optimal level of the suspension system’s factors was extracted using Taguchi method. It is evident from the results that, for different speeds, the body roll angle was improved up to 6.5%, and the RMS of the vertical acceleration of the vehicle body was optimized up to 4% to 7%.

In this research, the effect of using three Nano fluids contains graphene oxide (GO), titanium oxide (TiO2) and aluminum oxide (Al2 O3) was analyzed on the heat transfer of the car radiator by experiment in physical conditions on the car engine. Distilled water and ethylene glycol (60:40) as the base fluid was companied with three nanoparticles contain graphene oxide, titanium oxide and aluminum oxide that each one separately with 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 weight percent and flow rates of 10, 20, 32 and 40 liters per minute were used at normal engine temperature. After the temperature of the radiator cooling fluid reached 90 degrees Celsius and the fan was turned on for one minute, the results showed that increasing the weight percentage of nanoparticles to the base fluid increases the displacement heat transfer coefficient and most increase in the coefficient of heat transfer at 0.3 weight percent to an approximate value of 5.2% in aluminum oxide, 11.9% for titanium oxide and 28.7% for graphene oxide compared to the base fluid was received. With the increase in weight percentage, the pressure drop and Nusselt number increased.  The highest percentage increase in the radiator pressure drop for all three Nano fluids with 0.3 weight percentage and 2.2% for   aluminum oxide, 3.5% for Titanium oxide and 5.24% for graphene oxide were received.

In this article, the effect of the usage of variable speed electric water pump on the cooling system of a type of passenger car engine has been investigated. The engine water circulation in most of today's cars uses a mechanical method, the power required for its circulation is provided by a belt with a ratio of 1:1 from the crankshaft. This action makes the changes of the water pump speed a function of the engine speed and there is no control over it. One way to solve this problem is to use an intelligent thermal management system. In this method, some components of the cooling system, including the electric water pump, are controlled based on the working conditions and engine temperature. In this research, GT Suite and Simulink software were used simultaneously, and for this purpose, the engine cooling circuit with a mechanical water pump was simulated in GT Suite software and the accuracy of laboratory values was verified in terms of heat transfer. Then the mechanical connection of the water pump was disconnected and the water pump circuit was controlled with an electric motor. In the next step, in order to obtain the control pattern, the electric water pump was replaced with the mechanical water pump in the simulation pattern. The results of the software and experimental simulations of the intelligent cooling system showed a 13.4% reduction in engine warm-up time.
