Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Crashworthiness 810790

An analysis is carried out on the collision behaviour of front engine/front drive (FWD) cars in comparison with the other main types such as: - front engine/rear drive (FE/RD) - rear engine/rear drive (RE/RD)An evaluation is made of the results of standardized collision tests, integrated with non-standardized tests with particular devices.The parameters considered are those typical defining the deformation law and the forces developed during the collision. Special attention is paid to the modes of structural absorption of energy, the influence of car weight and collision velocity.
