  1. 1. Head Injuries in Car-to-Pedestrian Accidents - Investigation of Head Impact Dynamics, Injury Mechanisms and Countermeasures

    Author : Jianfeng Yao; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accident analysis; head injury; head protection; mathematical simulation; accident reconstruction; injury mechanism; Pedestrian accident;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to investigate head impact dynamics and to establish risk functions for head injuries by mathematical reconstructions of real-world car-to-pedestrian accidents. Furthermore, an attempt was made to develop an approach for the design and evaluation of head-protective devices. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigation of Head Injuries in Car-to-Child Pedestrian Accidents

    Author : Jianfeng Yao; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; injury mechanisms; head injury; child pedestrian; accident;

    Abstract : Head injury is the most common injury type in child pedestrian accidents andcould lead to lifelong disability or even death. To protect child pedestrianfrom head injury, it is important to understand the head injury mechanismsand tolerance levels. READ MORE

  3. 3. DREAM: A Method for Understanding the Causation of Single-Vehicle Crashes

    Author : Jesper Sandin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : driver error; accident model; contributory factors; causation; single-vehicle crashes; case study; pre-crash; accident analysis;

    Abstract : When conducting in-depth causation studies, it is essential that the analysis method can both define and classify contributing factors and be able to analyse how these factors may interact to produce a critical event. These issues are highly influenced by the underlying theory, e.g. the accident model. READ MORE

  4. 4. A systemic traffic accident model

    Author : Yu-Hsing Huang; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; trafikolyckor; trafiksäkerhet; traffic safety; traffic accidents; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Accident models are essential for all efforts in safety engineering. They influence the investigation and analysis of accidents, the assessment of systems and the development of precautions. Looking at accident statistics, the trend for Swedish roads is not pointing towards increased safety. READ MORE

  5. 5. Managing knowledge sharing of extreme weather induced impacts on land transport infrastructure : Case study of the Swedish Transport Administration

    Author : Monika Rydstedt Nyman; Lars Nyberg; Magnus Johansson; Eva Liljegren; Peter Söderholm; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lessons learned; risk management; climate change adaptation; accident investigation method; extreme weather events; natural hazard; land transport infrastructure; maintenance; lärande; kunskapsåterföring; risk hantering; klimatanpassning; olycksutredningsmetod; naturolyckor; landtransport infrastruktur; underhåll; Risk and Environmental Studies; Risk- och Miljöstudier;

    Abstract : Extreme weather events and effects of climate change are threats to the transport sector’s functionality and safety. Risk management in this context implies a necessity to focus on the connection between near-term experiences and coping strategies on one hand, and long-term adaptation analyses on the other.
