DOCUMENTATION OF INPUT FOR SINGLE VEHICLE ACCIDENT COMPUTER PROGRAM

WITHIN THE PAST FEW YEARS, CORNELL AERONAUTICAL LABORATORY HAS DEVELOPED A DIGITAL COMPUTER PROGRAM WHICH DETERMINES THE MOTIONS OF A SINGLE VEHICLE THAT OCCUR PRIOR TO AND DURING DEPARTURES FROM THE ROADWAY FOR GIVEN TERRAIN AND/OR OBSTACLE CONFIGURATIONS. THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN ADAPTED TO THE COMPUTER FACILITIES OF BOTH THE TEXAS TRANSPORTATION INSTITUTE AT COLLEGE STATION AND THE TEXAS HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT AT AUSTIN. IN ADAPTING IT, THE RESEARCHERS FAMILIARIZED THEMSELVES WITH THE LOGIC AND CODING OF THE PROGRAM AND SUBSEQUENTLY WROTE THIS DOCUMENT WHICH DESCRIBES ITS INPUT REQUIREMENTS AND SOME OF ITS TYPICAL USES. ADDITIONS AND MODIFICATIONS WERE ALSO MADE TO THE PROGRAM, INCREASING ITS FLEXIBILITY AND USEFULNESS, ALL OF WHICH ARE DOCUMENTED IN THIS REPORT. THIS REPORT IS INTENDED AS A SUPPLEMENT TO PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED REPORTS BY CORNELL AERONAUTICAL LABORATORY, IN PARTICULAR THE INPUT DATA FOR THE PROGRAM. WHEN USED IN THIS MANNER, IT SHOULD CONSIDERABLY REDUCE THE AMOUNT AND COMPLEXITY OF WORK INVOLVED IN IMPLEMENTING THE PROGRAM. /AUTHOR/
