VEHICLE INTEGRATION AND EVALUATION OF ADVANCED RESTRAINT SYSTEMS. VOLUME II: PHASE B

A series of eighteen full-scale crash tests were conducted to evaluate the performance of four advanced restraint systems that were structurally integrated into the Volvo 244. These tests were split into two phases; Phase A consisted of car-to-car and car-to-barrier impact tests using only Volvo 244's as test vehicles while the Phase B impact test configurations were car-to-car using Volvo 244's with Ford Torinos serving as bullet vehicles. This report presents the test results from Phase B of the test series.
