Unique Design Aspects Of Tul-aris Featured In Book About Motorcycle Design And Engineering

From an e-mail from Dr. Rob Tuluie:<BR><BR>The Tul-aris is featured repeatedly in the brand new motorcycle engineering book "Motorcycle Handling and Chassis Design" by Tony Foale. The book is a comprehensive review and an assessment of the current state of motorcycle design and development, investigating many interesting aspects of motorcycle engineering with sound physical reasoning. Several times throughout the book the unique aspects of the Tul-aris are described, including a discussion of the ground-breaking work using laboratory vehicle dynamics testing as well as virtual dynamic simulations for the design and development of the Tul-aris. The book considers the Tul-aris project a trend setter for the future of motorcycle design and development. More information on the new book is available at<BR><BR>In addition, the Tul-aris design and development process was presented at the 2000 SAE Motorsports conference, which is attended by many industry-leading engineers in the car and motorcycle racing world. The accompanying SAE paper describing this work is SAE 2000-01-3576, available at
