Abstract:
This paper presents a comprehensive method for assessing the vehicle impact speed in a vehicle/pedestrian collision. Mathematical models, real world collision data and staged impact test data were referenced from several studies pertaining to pedestrian collisions. Applicable relationships comparing vehicle impact speed to pedestrian throw distance were developed from regression analyses. In addition, post-impact vehicle damage and pedestrian injuries were subjectively analyzed to assess trends in vehicle impact speed. These methods provide a practical analytical approach for evaluating vehicle impact speed from the post-impact vehicle damage, pedestrian injuries and pedestrian throw distance.
