VAN CRASHWORTHINESS AND AGGRESSIVITY STUDY, TEST REPORT 3, ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION STUDIES

A series of eight, full-scale van crash tests was conducted, six tests were van-to-fixed barrier and two tests were van-to-car head-on collisions. The report presents data gathered for the Accident Investigation Division (AID) of the National Center for Statistics and Analysis. The data was gathered to obtain information on various impact modes and vehicle types through staged collisions for use in the CRASH 2 computer program. Vehicle and accident scene information from each test was collected for the purpose of improving crash phase reconstruction programs used in field studies. The information collected includes documentation of crash trajectory residual crush and tire marks for each vehicle in each test.
