FRONTAL CRASH TESTS - A COMPARISON OF METHODS

This paper offers a comparison of different frontal crash tests, including Volvo's Severe Partial Overlap Collision (SPOC) and offset tests against a deformable barrier. The methods are evaluated with respect to their results, both from a dummy performance point of view and based on car deformation characteristics. In addition, the practicability and possible effect on vehicle designs are discussed. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 879189.
