Evaluation of Full Vehicle and Component Test Procedures for Improving Side Impact Crash-Survivability 830463

This paper reports the results of one of the tasks addressed in a coordinated NHTSA/MVMA side impact test procedure development program: the identification of specific tests which should be able to discriminate among vehicle designs having a significant effect on side impact injuries. Component and full vehicle crash tests addressing impacts between specific occupant body parts and vehicle regions are recommended for development. Advantages and disadvantages of component vs. full vehicle tests are discussed and areas needing further research to support side impact test development are recommended.
