TitleEngineering aspects of traffic accidents in Adelaide, South Australia (PhD thesis)
AuthorsMcLean AJ
Year1966
TypeThesis
AbstractThis thesis describes the concept, development and organisation of a multt-disciplinary, on-the-spot survey of metropolitan road traffic accidents. The survey was financed by the Australian Road Research Board, directed by Professor J.S. Robertson of the Department of Pathology of the University of Adelaide, and conducted by G.A. Ryan; M.a., B.S., and myself. 408 accidents were attended in the Adelaide metropolitan area in the years 1963 and 1964. These formed a representative 12.3% , sample of all traffic accidents to which an ambulance was called. The causation and consequences of each accident were investigated in detail. A comprehensive photographic record was made by the author, and sketch plans were drawn. A check-list form and punch card code were developed for the recording of the engineering data. A system developed for rating vehicle damage is described.
