Vehicle Crash Mechanicsby Matthew Huang
Synopses & Reviews
Vehicle Crash Mechanics clarifies the complexities of this multifaceted area of study. It sets forth the principles of engineering mechanics and applies them to the issue of crashworthiness. It explores the three primary elements of crashworthiness, which are vehicle, occupant, and restraints, and illustrates their dynamic interactions through analytical models, experimental methods, and test data from actual crash tests. Parallel development of the analysis of actual test results and the interpretation of mathematical models related to the test provide additional insight, and case studies present real-world crash tests, accidents, and the effectiveness of air bag and crash sensing systems.
Book News Annotation:
Setting forth principles of mechanics and applying them to vehicle crashworthiness, this book explores the interactions of primary elements of crashworthiness through analytical models, experimental methods, and actual crash test data. Parallel development of the analysis of real test results and the interpretation of the relevant mathematical models provides insight into the parameters and interactions that influence the results. Detailed case studies describe real-world crash tests, accidents, and the effectiveness of air bag and crash sensing systems. Design analysis formulas and two- and three-dimensional charts help in visualizing the interactions of design variables.
