VEHICLE CRASHWORTHINESS AND AGGRESSIVENESS. VOLUME III: APPENDICES- CRASH PULSES AND ABAG COMPUTOR SIMULATION
Data from crash tests of current production vehicles were analyzed to determine their levels of crashworthiness, and to study causes of aggressiveness of large vehicles against smaller vehicles. In addition, results of crash tests conducted with a load cell barrier test device built by Dynamic Science, Inc., were analyzed to determine the suitability of the device for measuring vehicle aggressiveness. The analyses included mathematical modeling of vehicles, occupants and restraint systems, as well as evaluation of dummy response measurements.
