A Revised Damage Analysis Procedure for the CRASH Computer Program 861894

A revised damage analysis procedure for CRASH, which includes restitution effects, is described. The proposed calculation procedure has the potential capability of (1) improving the delta-V accuracy in low-speed collisions and (2) segregating stiffness and restitution properties. The analytical approach can provide a basis for refinement of the categorization of vehicles through its use of additional crush property descriptors. Sample results from applications of a prototype computer routine are presented and compared with corresponding results from the original damage routine of CRASH.
