NISSAN/AMF ESSVS--FRONT-TO-FRONT IMPACT TEST AT 60 MPH

The report presents the results of an aligned front-to-front collision between a Nissan Experimental Safety Vehicle (ESV) and a 4000 pound AMF ESV at a closure speed of 60 miles per hour. The objective of the test was to assist in the understanding of problems associated with crashworthiness in the traffic mix, i.e., car-to-car compatibility and aggressiveness. This crash test evaluated the structural integrity and dynamic response of the Nissan ESV and the dynamic response of its four occupants, when involved in collision with a larger ESV. The test was successful in that Nissan compartment integrity was adequately maintained and all occupant responses met established specifications.
