EXTENSIONS AND REFINEMENTS OF THE CRASH COMPUTER PROGRAM

The Calspan Reconstruction of Accident Speeds on the Highway (CRASH) computer program was modified to (1) improve its accuracy and user convenience in the prediction of trajectories involving spins, (2) permit the optional entry of two, four or six measurements of damage extent in the calculation of absorbed energy, (3) improve the interpretation of damage in oblique collisions, and (4) adapt the program as a preprocessor for the Simulation Model of Automobile Collisions (SMAC) computer program. /Author/
