EEVC European Enhanced Vehicle-safety Committee : Ad-Hoc Group on whiplash Injuries and EEVC WG12 advanced anthropometric adult crash dummies: final report Svensson, Mats et al

By: Svensson, MatsSeries: Working group 12. Document ; 157Publication details: European Enhanced Vehicle-safety Committee, EEVC, 2002Description: 30 sSubject(s): Sweden | Whiplash injury | Test method | Neck | | Working group | | 85Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: Several proposals for a test procedure for neck injury protection assessment have been published. A good deal of data are available to serve as a basis for the choice of; test set-up (e.g. full vehicle test, sled test), accident severity (delta-v, acceleration characteristic) and crash dummy type. There is however a lack of information regarding the choice of a neck injury criterion and a tolerance level. There are however promising activities under way, for instance in the ongoing EU-project "Whiplash II". The EEVC ad-hoc working group on whiplash injuries recommends that a new EEVC activity on rear impact is established. Although much research work has taken place there are still significant gaps in the knowledge base, before a full regulatory test procedures can be fully adopted. The ad-hoc group feels that a new EEVC activity would have an important role to play in initiating and evaluating new research to fill these gaps. Future tasks for any new EEVC activity would include: a) Test procedures b) Test devices (crash dummies). c) Assessment criteria d) Validation.
