OCCUPANT RESPONSE AND VEHICLE ACCELERATION IN A 30 MPH FRONTAL IMPACT TEST-1982 WINNEBAGO TREKKER-TRUCK-NHTSA 821301

The Office of Passenger Vehicle Research (OPVR) Occupant Packaging Branch (OPB) has been interested for several years in obtaining certain information on various impact modes and vehicle types through staged collisions. The specific data needed has been incomplete or unavailable for the majority of staged collision. The vehicle collision reported herein was performed under Contract No. DOT-HS-9-02273 entitled "Vehicle Safety Compliance Testing of Windshield Mounting, Windshield Zone Intrusion and Fuel System Integrity in a Frontal Collision", which established data on a truck type vehicle for which very little such data is presently available. The information collected includes occupant injury measurement (Ref. FMVSS 208) as well as seat belt loads, and vehicle acceleration.
