COLLISION MECHANICS AND ACCIDENT ANALYSIS

KOLLISIONSMECHANIK UND UNFALLANALYSE

EXPERIMENTAL DATA OBTAINED IN THE FIELD OF ACCIDENT MECHANICS ARE BEING USED TO RECONSTRUCT THE COURSE OF ACCIDENTS BY MEANS OF GRAPHIC AND ANALYTICAL METHODS. PARTICULAR ATTENTION IS TO BE PAID TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RATIONAL METHOD OF EVALUATING IMPACT EQUATIONS (DRIVE-BALANCE-DIAGRAM) AND TO THE FORMULATION OF VALUES TO DESCRIBE TYRE FORCES IN THE UNCONTROLLED OR LIMIT STATE. AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE PROJECT IS THE ANALYTICAL STUDY OF THE COLLISION BETWEEN PEDESTRIAN AND CAR OR LORRY AND BETWEEN TWO-WHEELED VEHICLE AND CAR OR LORRY.
