Paper Abstract

Vehicle impact tests have three basic differences from most other automotive tests: 1. the duration of the test is short -less than one-quarter of a second; 2. the test item is destroyed -it is impossible to go back and run the test again if something goes wrong; and 3. they tend to be complex -several items are tested for any given impact.
