A REVIEW AND INVESTIGATION OF BETTER CRASH SEVERITY MEASURES: AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
Over the last ten years, dozens of crash severity measures have been proposed, discussed, and used. This annotated bibliography reviews the extensive amount of crash severity literature--both American and European. The 245 references are grouped according to four subject categories: crash severity, accidents, crashworthiness, and biomechanics. Within each category the references are arranged by author and publication date. Exhaustive coverage has not been provided, but representative examples of literature on peripheral subjects have been included.
