Abstract:
Rollover accidents account for a large number of serious to fatal injuries annually. In the past, these injuries were often the result of unrestrained occupant ejection. Subsequent to mandatory belt use laws, a larger percentage of these injuries occur inside the vehicle, and the head and neck areas sustain a substantial number of these injuries.An analytical effort to understand rollover injuries, using the field accident data of the NASS files and residual headroom as an indicator, was reported by the authors at the 1996 ESV conference in Melbourne, Australia. This paper describes the relationship between roof crush and restrained occupant injury in rollover accidents as derived from the analysis of 1988-1992 NASS files. It extends the residual headroom parameter to the entire population of head, face and neck occupants injured inside the compartment.1
