Comparative Evaluation of Various Frontal Impact Test Procedures 950646
The result of two series of crash tests, 5 tests each series, are presented in this paper. Two car designs were subjected to various frontal impacts - full frontal, car-to-car 60% offset, 50% offset, and 50% offset with deformable barrier - at 56 km/h. Two tests were conducted at 60 km/h against the ECE deformable barrier with 40% overlap. Structural and occupant responses are compared between the various test conditions.
