Rollover and Interior Kinematics Test Procedures Revisited 861875

This paper reviews the development and demonstration of a procedure for a rollover test to be conducted without the use of a ramp or rollover cart and also demonstrates the kinematics of an unrestrained far side occupant during the rollover sequence.
A full-size car was pulled sideways into an energy absorbing barrier causing the car to roll 180 degrees and yaw 360 degrees.
The test demonstrated that in an event of this type and severity, the injury can occur prior to ejection and that there is no correlation between roof crush and injury.
