Override/Underride Crush Energy: Results from Vertically Offset Barrier Impacts 2005-01-1202

Results from a series of repeated-impact crash tests of a 1990 Ford Taurus sedan into a rigid, vertically offset barrier are presented in this paper. The purpose in conducting these crash tests was to further investigate override/underride crush energy behavior. The testing set-up and conduct are described and the test results, including impact speed, rebound speed and residual crush profiles are presented. The results of these tests are discussed and compared to the existing crash test data for this vehicle model. Previously suggested override/underride crush energy methodologies are also applied to the new data.
