  2. 7. Young Drivers and Their Passengers : Crash Risk and Group Processes

    Author : Inger Engström; Kjell Granström; Nils Petter Gregersen; Håkan Alm; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Young drivers; passengers; crash risk; group processes; Unga förare; passagerare; olycksrisk; grupprocesser; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The overall aim was to elucidate the effects of vehicle passengers on young drivers. This generated two specific aims and four papers. The first aim was to investigate the crash risk for young drivers with passengers and to establish whether such accidents involve any special circumstances compared to those that occur without passengers.

  4. 9. Heavy Vehicle Crash Safety - Improved Thoracic Injury Prediction in Frontal Crash Testing

    Author : Kristian Holmqvist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Finite Element modelling; Pendulum test; Injury assessment; Accidents; Chest injury; Hybrid III; Heavy goods vehicle; THUMS; Crash test;

    Abstract : Frontal crashes are regarded as some of the most injurious accidents for Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) drivers. One of the leading HGV manufacturers regularly conducts frontal crash testing for occupant safety. The Hybrid III crash test dummy was developed for frontal testing in passenger cars and has become the standard in crash laboratories. READ MORE

  5. 10. Crash Compatibility between Roadside Infrastructure and Passenger Vehicles: Improving the Geometric and Structural Compatibility to Reduce Fatalities

    Author : Weijia Wu; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : crash simulations.; ditches; accident analysis; crash compatibility; guardrails; roadside safety;

    Abstract : Roadside accidents cause a significant number of fatalities each year in the world. To reducethis type of accident, roadside infrastructure needs to be investigated to improve protection todifferent kinds of passenger vehicles during crashes. READ MORE
