Further Development of Windshields and Windshield Mounting 720355

The development of windshields and their methods of mounting are covered. By performing tests in which a single head form strikes against the windshield, two model heads strike against the windshield at the same time, and an unrestrained test dummy strikes the windshield, it has been shown that reinforcement of the interlayer and, at the same time, limiting of the windshield edge mounting would improve the safety factor when accidents occur. The necessity of further development is however dependent on the restraint system used. Apparently, development of the windshield is not necessary if inflatable restraint systems are used and if their performance is sufficient enough.
