Analysis and Calculation of Delta-V from Crash Test Data 960899

Calculation of delta-v from crash test data is commonly done through integration of accelerometer data. For tests that result in high yaw velocity and where accelerometers are located somewhat remote from the center of gravity, corrections must be made. This paper defines both the well known yaw velocity-distance factor and an additional factor involving the integral of yaw velocity squared, and presents methodology for data analysis.
