This book features new research, information, and techniques useful in documenting, modeling, analyzing, and understanding motor vehicle collisions. Contents include: developing a crush profile estimate by balancing impact forces; accident scene diagramming using new photogrammetric technique; energy supply and time dependence on filament deformation; drag and steering effects of under inflated and deflated tires; determination of bumper characteristics using prototype moving barriers; an analytical assessment of the critical speed formula; examination protocol for vehicles equipped with an inflatable restraint system; effects of restitution in the application of crush coefficients; avoiding the emerging pedestrian: a mathematical model; motorcycle slide to stop tests; safety of roadside curbs; and computer images and animations in court.
