  2. 2. Structural Interaction between Vehicles. An Investigation of Crash Compatibility between Cars and Heavy Goods Vehicles

    Author : Aleksandra Krusper; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Front Underrun Protection; simulation; Heavy Goods Vehicles; compatibility assessment; FUPD; Front Underrun Protective Device; energy absorption; crash compatibility; HGV; structural interaction; FUP;

    Abstract : While frontal collisions between Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) and passenger cars are rarecompared to car-to-car frontal crashes, they are much more severe. Between 43% and 73% ofall frontal car-to-truck accidents result in fatalities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural Safety Design for Real-World Situations - Using Computer Aided Engineering for Robust Passenger Car Crashworthiness

    Author : Linus Wågström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; structural adaptivity; passive safety; small overlap crashes; crash compatibility; frontal crashes; structural robustness; crash simulation;

    Abstract : Road traffic continues to cause more than a million fatalities worldwide every year. Although many steps have been taken to improve occupant protection in car crashes, challenges still remain for car designers. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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. 5. 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
