Crash Pulse Characterization to Minimize Occupant Injuries in Offset Frontal Crash 2017-26-0019

The objective of this paper is to minimize occupant injuries in offset frontal crash with pulse characterization, by keeping vehicle front crush space & occupant survival space constant. Crash pulse characterization greatly simplifies the representation of crash pulse time histories. The parameters used to characterize the crash pulse are velocity change, time & value of dynamic crush, and zero cross-over time. The crash pulse slope, peaks, average values at discrete time intervals have significant role on occupant injuries. Vehicle crash pulse of different trends have different impact on occupant injury. The intension of crash pulse characterization study is to come out with one particular crash pulse which shows minimum occupant injuries. This study will have significant impact in terms of front loading on crash development of vehicle.
