MATHEMATICAL SIMULATION OF ACCIDENTS INVOLVING MOTOR VEHICLES AND PEDESTRIANS

RECHNERISCHE SIMULATION DES FAHRZEUG-FUSSGAENGER-UNFALLS

COLLISIONS INVOLVING MOTOR VEHICLES AND PEDESTRIANS ARE EXAMINED BY MEANS OF MATHEMATICAL SIMULATORS. THE VARIATIONS IN PARAMETERS ARE MOTOR VEHICLE GEOMETRY, STIFFNESS OF VEHICLE BODY, SPEED OF IMPACT AND PASSENGER SIZE. THE POSSIBILITY OF CARRYING OUT REASONABLE ALTERATIONS ON MOTOR VEHICLES FOR THE PROTECTION OF PEDESTRIANS IS BEING STUDIED.
