CRASH INJURY REDUCTION AND POST-CRASH FACTORS EVALUATIONS--FORD ESSV'S (EXPERIMENTAL SAFETY VEHICLES)--FORTY-MPH, FIFTY-MPH, AND LOW-SPEED BARRIER IMPACTS

This report presents the results of front and rear low-speed bumper tests and the 40- and 50-MPH frontal flat-barrier tests conducted on two Ford Experimental Safety Vehicles. The primary objectives of this test series were to evaluate vehicle damage in low-speed impacts and to determine the occupant and structural responses of the Ford Experimental Safety Vehicles when subjected to 40- and 50-MPH front barrier impacts. Post-crash factors evaluations were also performed to evaluate rescue and emergency egress. /HRIS/
