DATA RETRIEVAL BY ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION FOR SAFER VEHICLE DESIGN

TO RETRIEVE THE MOST NEEDED DATA FOR FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS IN SAFETY DESIGN AND TO TRANSLATE ACTUAL ACCIDENTS AS CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTS, AN ENGINEERING METHOD WAS DEVELOPED TO RECONSTRUCT ACCIDENTS. IT SYNTHESIZES PREVIOUSLY VALIDATED ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL KNOWLEDGE PERTINENT TO AUTOMOBILE COLLISION MECHANICS. THE METHOD WAS APPLIED TO AN ACTUAL ACCIDENT, INDICATING THAT THE METHODOLOGY IS SOUND AND ACCURATE. /SAE/
