HIGH SPEED IMPACT AND AGGRESSIVITY ANALYSIS OF THE CALSPAN/CHRYSLER RESEARCH SAFETY VEHICLE (RSV)
The Calspan/Chrysler Research Safety Vehicle Program has developed a light weight vehicle with increased occupant and pedestrian crash protection over present vehicles. It was determined that for an efficient structure, high speed car-to-car aggressivity is not a function of either the struck or striking vehicle alone, but rather is a structural burden that must be shared by both vehicles.
