Side Impact Occupant Protection Technologies contains current information on test procedures; test tools; test results; occupant kinematics; and means to improve occupant survival in side impacts. Partial contents include: practical problems related to side impact field data accuracy and its importance to side impact protection assessments; computer-aided 3-D surface reconstruction during high speed crush events; computer simulation of side impact using different mobile barriers; energy absorbed by vehicle structures in side- impacts; and occupant kinematics and injury causation in side impacts - field accident experience.
