NHTSA conducts vehicle testing and ratings each year to give consumers information about crashworthiness, collision avoidance and other areas that improve the safety of new vehicles.
(https://www.iihs.org/ratings/vehicle/audi/e-tron-4-door-suv/2019) The crashworthiness tests consisted of small overlap front: driver-side; small overlap front: passenger-side; moderate overlap front; side; roof strength; and head restraints and seats.
Beyond crashworthiness, the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies is now standard equipment on the 2019 Passport, Accord, Civic2, Clarity series, Insight, and Pilot and available on every Honda nameplate.
"The DA42 offers the ultimate in handling, stability and control, ease of operation and structural, system and propulsion redundancies, all coupled with a high degree of crashworthiness."
Crashworthiness is evaluated either predictively using finite element models and experiments or reflectively by breaking down crash results.
Crashworthiness and design Crashworthiness Research conducted the said training.
In addition to Europe's leading safety rating, the Compass also earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the US Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), achieving 'good' ratings in each of five demanding IIHS tests that evaluate crashworthiness. Its available Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology also earned a grade of 'superior'.
In order to analyze the effect of stacking sequence, fibre direction, and layer thickness on the crashworthiness of sandwich panels, the specimens in this study are divided into three groups (Group A/Group B/Group C) as listed in Table 3.
The results were possible because all models performed well in the newly added headlight performance category, as well as existing crashworthiness evaluation categories.
Thin-walled structures, including beams and columns play an essential role in vehicle crashworthiness by absorbing impact kinematic energy effectively and efficiently [1, 2, 3].
The updates would offer an alternative method for evaluating "crashworthiness" -- that is, the measure of how well passengers and crews are protected in an accident.
Crashworthiness is one of the most important performances of vehicles, and the front rails are the main crash energy absorption parts during the frontal crashing process.
