MVMA (MOTOR VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION) TWO-DIMENSIONAL CRASH VICTIM SIMULATION TUTORIAL SYSTEM: SELF-STUDY GUIDE
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, illustrations, and example problems.
