How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
This paper presents a novel technique for modeling a full frontal vehicle crash. The crash event is divided into two phases; the first until maximum crush and the second part when the vehicle starts pitching forward. This novel technique will help develop a three degrees of freedom (DOF) lumped parameter model (LPM) for crash and support in the veh...
Vehicle crash modeling has been a challenge for researchers for several decades. Occupant injury prevention and prediction is a critical area within vehicle safety design. The modeling of material failure in structural members during a full frontal crash has been presented in this paper. This study presents a Lumped Parameter Model (LPM) with an el...
Accident injury prediction is a crucial constituent to reducing fatalities linked to vehicle crashes. The vehicle development process and road safety planning includes also the injury prediction for occupants and Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) in a vehicle crash and the identification of the factors responsible for increased traffic collision injurie...
This article reviews approaches to mathematical modeling of a vehicle crash. The growing focus on vehicle and occupant safety in car crashes has triggered the need to study vehicle crashworthiness in the initial stages of vehicle development. The major motivation for this work is to support vehicle crashworthiness design during the product developm...
This paper deals with the undesired effects of the heat treatments on the mechanical properties of (UHSS) Ultra High Strength Steel used nowadays in automotive industry to improve crashworthiness performance of vehicles. The UHSS specimens were extracted from certain parts of the car body and subjected to different heat treatments. Four types of sp...
To what extent is the mathematical model capable of giving a design direction to the vehicle development team to assess injury values for a vehicle crash event?
