Dynamics, or dynamic processes, is the part of mechanics dealing with the study of processes trying to describe as real as possible the movement of a body, element, mechanism, car, etc., also taking into account the action of the forces on the respective system with their influence on the actual movement of system. The present paper aims to present the study of the dynamics of the vehicles, with particularization on the buses. Here are the main elements of the bus dynamics, taking into account all the elements that influence the dynamic operation of a bus, in general and in particular situations, with emphasis on the main systems and elements that act on the actual, dynamic, on a normal path or on an inclined with an alpha angle path.
