    The subject of the first volume is the issues related to the components and systems of transport machines. Motor vehicle systems tests are described: suspension dampers, steering, brakes and differentials. Design issues of machine elements operating in extreme conditions are also addressed. The possibility of increasing wear resistance in high-speed and ethanol-powered engines is analyzed. An extensive part covers the dynamics of hydraulic, electro-hydraulic and mechanical-hydraulic systems and the issues of diagnostics and automatic control in such systems. Aspects of the regional system of motor transport, public transport and transport and logistics of agricultural machinery are also addressed. The volume also examines selected technical and economic issues of gas transport. Topics on modelling of production processes with the transport of products are a complement.
