DEVELOPMENT OF A TEST METHODOLOGY FOR EVALUATING CRASH COMPATIBILITY AND AGGRESSIVENESS. TEST REPORT 1: 1975 HONDA CIVIC CVCC-TO-NHTSA TEST DEVICE
The report presents the results of two full-scale, head-on collisions between the NHTSA Test Device and 1975 Honda Civic CVCC two-door sedans. The objective of these tests was to help establish a test methodology for evaluating crash compatibility and aggressiveness. The Test Device is a unique, honeycomb faced load-measuring tool which is adaptable to both moving barrier and fixed barrier collisions. Data contained include graphical and tabular presentations of vehicle deformantion, Test Device load cell data, vehicle and simulated occupant acceleration, velocity, and displacement values, dynamic displacement of string potentiometers, and restraint survival distances. Also included are tabular summaries of occupant injury criteria, exterior and interior static vehicle deformation, and restraint system loads and vehicle descriptions.
