This paper examines some of the new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, and discusses facets of the engineering required to meet them. The author’s reactions to these standards are also explained.
The engineering involved in those standards concerning passenger car interior occupant protection, the relative rearward displacement of steering columns, and the 30 mph barrier crash, are discussed in some detail.
