Abstract:
PC-Crash is a vehicular accident simulation software that is widely used by the accident reconstruction community. This article reviews the prior literature that has addressed the capabilities of PC-Crash along with its accuracy and reliability for various applications (planar collisions, rollovers, and human motion). In addition to reviewing the literature, this article also adds additional analysis of the capabilities of PC-Crash for simulating planar collisions and rollovers. Specifically, simulation analysis of five planar collisions originally reported and analyzed by Bailey [2000] are reexamined. Simulation of a full-scale rollover test reported by Asay [2010] is also examined. These areas of additional analysis extend the prior literature and add to our understanding of the capabilities and limitations of PC-Crash.
