TitlePedestrian friendly vehicle front structures: a review of the research literature
AuthorsMcLean AJ
Year1996
TypeReport
AbstractCertain characteristics of vehicle design can have a marked effect on the nature and severity of injuries sustained by a pedestrian when struck by a vehicle. This report reviews the evolution of our understanding of that relationship and discusses the research activities which have led to the development of vehicle test procedures to optirnise the protection afforded to a pedestrian in the event of a collision. The relevance of these test procedures to the Australian situation is discussed.
