OCCUPANT PROTECTION IN CAR-TO-CAR IMPACTS
An analytical study defines the interaction of the occupant and the vehicle as a system for car-to-car impacts. Using basic relationships, the question of vehicle stiffness and mass differential effects on the occupant is discussed. The vehicle characteristics used for the car-to-car impacts are developed from barrier impact data.
