Human Subject Crash Testing: Innovations and Advances

Improved vehicle and seat design, lower speed collision injury mechanism explanation assistance, and improved vehicle and occupant kinematic understanding have all resulted from more than five decades of crash studies in which human subjects have been used. Forty-two of the most important current and historical studies in rear-end, side, and frontal impacts using living human subjects are included in the monograph. Included are conference proceeding papers and many other Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) papers from the years 1955 to 2006 which are considered landmarks. Long-term reference value, number of subjects, uniqueness, and method rigor and quality are among the criteria by which papers were chosen for the monograph. Other relevant human subject crash test studies are briefly summarized and included in a comprehensive bibliography.
