ACCIDENTS DU TRAFIX. ETUDE DE 30 CHOCS FRONTAUX PARTICULIERS

This thesis is based on a two-disciplinary survey conducted in Salon-de-Provence. A detailed analysis was made of a small number of specific accidents. Mechanical damages and injuries are reported for each accident together with the circumstances of the accident, type of obstacle, kinematics of vehicles, position of vehicle occupants, use of safety belts. Tables describe the relations between injuries and injury-causing objects for each category of occupants. An appendix recalls the vehicle deformation index (vdi), equivalent test speed (ets) and the overall index of injury severity. An extensive bibliography is appended. /TRRL/
