Crash Dynamics and Structures of the Experimental Safety Vehicle Developed by General Motors 730076

Development of the structures for an experimental safety vehicle by General Motors Corp. in compliance with Contract DOT-OS-00095 involved defining vehicle crash dynamics and relating structural characteristics to dummy occupant kinematics. Analytical tools were used to simulate vehicle crush characteristics, relate the crush/deceleration behavior to occupant kinematics, and simulate occupant behavior. A comprehensive test program was planned and final crashworthiness testing and validation were conducted.
