THE NEED OF REPRODUCING THE CORRECT DISTRIBUTION OF INTRUSIONS IN THE NEW OFFSET DEFORMABLE FRONTAL IMPACT TEST

This paper deals with the problem of reproducing the vertical distribution on intrusions in passenger compartments, between floor and facia level, in the correct way. This is a basic condition in order to obtain a deformation pattern similar to those found in real world accidents. A set of tests using Fiat UNO vehicles was performed. The aim is to analyse the effect of different barrier design parameters. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 875833.
