Motorist Head and Body Impact Analysis, Methodologies and Reconstruction 850097
Motorist impact marks and embossments provide valuable data relating to evaluation of injury, crash energy management, occupant positioning and collision severity. Research techniques presented enable analysis of these impacts.
Biomechanical techniques for motorist head impact analysis are presented along with static crush calibration and dynamic impact replication of passenger compartment head dents.
Evaluation and identification of occupant induced marks on restraint systems are discussed as well as determination of who was driving.
Ejection findings of the fifties and sixties are clarified by case studies that show how vehicle design changes may switch the portal of ejection from doors to windows.
