Conference Crash Test Summaries Page
The testing for the conference consisted of 2 crash tests
The first test was a 2 vehicle impact simulating both vehicles failing to stop for a stop sign, or running through a "dark" signalized intersection.
The second test was a 3 vehicle impact simulating a vehicle trying to turn left in front of a vehicle proceding through a stop signed intersection. Both of these vehicles stop without impacting each other, then a third vehicle comes and rear ends the through vehicle pushing it into the left turning vehicle.
The testing for the conference consisted of 3 crash tests
The first test was a 3 vehicle impact simulating a vehicle stopped behind another at a Traffic Signal or Stop Sign, which gets hit in the rear and being shoved into the rear of the vehicle in front of it.
The second test was a Head-On impact, with the lighter vehicle tavelling at 2 times the speed of the heavier vehicle, resulting in the heavier vehicle being shoved backwards.
The third test was an oblique font-to-front impact similar to an impact between a left tunring vehicle about midway through the turn and a through vehicle.
The testing for the conference focused on trailer impacts and featured two rear impacts and a side-underride impact into a flatbed trailer.
In addition, there was a head-on between a Honda Accord and a Plymouth Voyager, and a side impact with a Plymouth Reliant punching into the side of a Nissan Stanza.
The testing for the conference focused on "rotation" and featured two side impacts and one head-on.
The Focus of the Conference Testing in 2010 was application of determing speed from Crush with various angles of impacts. The testing involved two side impact tests (one with both vehicles moving) a partial overlap head on, and an angled head on, similar to one car starting to turn in front of an oncoming car and then stopping in the middle of the lane.
There was also two days of " Low Speed" rear ender type testing, which was wrapped up with two " T-Bone" collisions
The Focus of the Conference Testing in 2009 was Jersey Barrier impacts. Three end on and one angled impact test were conducted. The testing was wrapped up with a three car chain reaction similar to two cars stopped for a Traffic Signal or Stop sign, and a third car comes along at a high speed rear ending them.
