MVMA TWO-DIMENSIONAL CRASH VICTIM SIMULATION TUTORIAL SYSTEM: AUDIO VISUAL PROGRAM
The MVMA Two-Dimensional Crash Victim Simulator is a mathematical model used for predicting occupant dynamics in a crash environment. The computer model is large and complex. Its many options and features provide the automotive safety engineer considerable flexibility in defining a crash event but at the same time impose considerable demands for specification of input data. As a means of facilitating learning to use the model, the Tutorial System combines a Self-Study Guide and an Audio-Visual Program. Both are divided into thirteen segments, called "modules," each of which deals with the data requirements of a set of related model features. Each audio-visual module consists of 35 mm slides and approximately twenty minutes of narration on a tape cassette. Tutorial System documentation is in two volumes. The Self-Study Guide consists of text, illustraions, and example problems. The Audio-Visual Program includes the narration text and figures used for the 35 mm slides. All documentation is loose-leaf. /HSRI/
