Means for Manipulating Forces in the Case of Frontal Collisions Through the Use of: Unique (& Patented) Engine Mount Concepts - Overview, Crash Test Results and Analysis 922081

This paper and its companion presentation deal with a set of concepts for reducing damage to occupants of vehicles engaged in catastrophic frontal, side-frontal, or in any form of “head-on” collision.
The concepts are such that they do not come into play unless and until an eminent catastrophic situation occurs. These concepts are not designed to be deployed in cases where vehicle(s) are likely to remain in a state from which they can be repaired. The concepts in question are only designed to be activated in catastrophic situations that cannot be reversed, in other words, when a situation reaches a point of no return.
