COMPUTER SIMULATIONS OF OCCUPANT RESPONSES IN FRONTAL CRASHES USING CVS III

Twelve computer simulations, utilizing the Calspan three-dimensional Crash Victim Simulator (CVS) program, were executed and the input code and output data are stored at the U.S. Army ARRADCOM Edgewood Area Scientific Computer Center located at Edgewood, Maryland. These computer simulations represent 50th percentile occupants, restrained with both three-point belt systems and air cushion restraint systems, seated in both the driver and right front passenger positions of a 1975 Volvo, at crash velocities of 30, 40 and 45 mph.
