Revision and Validation of Vehicle/Pedestrian Collision Analysis Method 2002-01-0550

A comprehensive analysis method for assessing the vehicle impact speed in a vehicle/pedestrian collision was presented in an earlier publication (SAE #2000-01-0846) by the above authors [1]. This presented method provides a practical analytical approach for evaluating vehicle impact speed from the post-impact vehicle damage, pedestrian injuries and pedestrian throw distance. The applicability of this method to reconstructing real world vehicle/pedestrian collisions is examined. The results of this study indicate that the previously presented model can be used to assess a reasonable range for the vehicle impact speed in a vehicle/pedestrian collision. The regression model equations were revised to include the new data.
