The Characteristics of Frontal Impacts in Real-World Accidents 856060

From a file of real-world accidents analyzed by the Peugeot SA/Renault accident investigation team, 572 frontal impacts with a ΔV of more than 35km/h were extracted. These were described and classified on the basis of a large number of criteria that make it possible to compare the degree of representativeness of an oblique test and of a perpendicular test.
This exhaustive descriptive method makes it possible to provide an objective basis for discussions concerned with the procedures of a homologation test.
