OCCUPANT SURVIVABILITY IN LATERAL COLLISIONS. VOLUME II. APPENDICES
The study investigates the feasibility of modifications to the interior and glazing of a full-size automobile which, when combined with structural modifications to upgrade structural integrity, would enhance occupant survivability in severe lateral collision accidents. Main elements of the project were (1) performance of baseline lateral collision tests under various impact modes, (2) developmental testing of advanced interior padding and glazing materials, (3) fabrication of vehicles incorporating modified structures, interiors and side glazing, (4) performance of lateral collision tests of the modified vehicles, and (5) evaluating the results and providing conclusions and recommendations relative to improving lateral impact protection.
