Dynamic injury tolerances for long bones of the female upper extremity. (1/79)

This paper presents the dynamic injury tolerances for the female humerus and forearm derived from dynamic 3-point bending tests using 22 female cadaver upper extremities. Twelve female humeri were tested at an average strain rate of 3.7+/-1.3%/s. The strain rates were chosen to be representative of those observed during upper extremity interaction with frontal and side airbags. The average moment to failure when mass scaled for the 5th centile female was 128+/-19 Nm. Using data from the in situ strain gauges during the drop tests and geometric properties obtained from pretest CT scans, an average dynamic elastic modulus for the female humerus was found to be 24.4+/-3.9 GPa. The injury tolerance for the forearm was determined from 10 female forearms tested at an average strain rate of 3.94+/-2.0%/s. Using 3 matched forearm pairs, it was determined that the forearm is 21% stronger in the supinated position (92+/-5 Nm) versus the pronated position (75+/-7 Nm). Two distinct fracture patterns were seen for the pronated and supinated groups. In the supinated position the average difference in fracture time between the radius and ulna was a negligible 0.4+/-0.3 ms. However, the pronated tests yielded an average difference in fracture time of 3.6+/-1.2 ms, with the ulna breaking before the radius in every test. This trend implies that in the pronated position, the ulna and radius are loaded independently, while in the supinated position the ulna and radius are loaded together as a combined structure. To produce a conservative injury criterion, a total of 7 female forearms were tested in the pronated position, which resulted in the forearm injury criterion of 58+/-12 Nm when scaled for the 5th centile female. It is anticipated that these data will provide injury reference values for the female forearm during driver air bag loading, and the female humerus during side air bag loading.  (+info)

Driver distance from the steering wheel: perception and objective measurement. (2/79)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the accuracy of driver perceptions of the distance between the driver's nose and the steering wheel of the vehicle as a factor in considering driver disconnection of an airbag contained in the steering wheel for preventing injury to the driver in an accident. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey of 1000 drivers was done to obtain perceived and objective measurements of the distance between the driver's nose and the steering wheel of the vehicle. RESULTS: Of 234 drivers who believed that they sat within 12 inches of the steering wheel, only 8 (3%) actually did so, whereas of 658 drivers who did not believe that they sat within 12 inches of the wheel, 14 (2%) did so. Shorter drivers were more likely than taller ones to both underestimate and overestimate their seating distance. CONCLUSIONS: Considerable misperception of drivers' distance from the wheel indicates that drivers should objectively measure this distance.  (+info)

Air bags and ocular injuries. (3/79)

PURPOSE: This investigation retrospectively examined ocular injuries associated with air bag deployment to gain a better appreciation of potential risk factors in motor vehicle accidents. National statistics regarding the efficacy of air bags were reviewed. METHODS: Review of the literature from 1991 to 1998 identified 44 articles describing 97 patients with air-bag-induced ocular injuries. Variables extracted from each case were age, sex, height, position in the car, eye wear, vehicle impact speed, visual acuity, and specific ocular injuries. RESULTS: Corneal abrasions occurred in 49% of occupants, hyphemas in 43%, vitreous or retinal hemorrhages in 25%, and retinal tears or detachments in 15%. The globe was ruptured in 10 patients. Patients involved in higher-speed accidents (over 30 mph) sustained a greater percentage of vitreous or retinal hemorrhages and traumatic cataracts, while those at slower speeds were more prone to retinal tears or detachments. In a subset of 14 patients with serious ocular injuries, the impact speed of 11 patients was recorded at 30 mph or less. Slower speed may be a risk factor for some ocular injuries. Occupant height was not a significant factor. National statistics confirm that air bags reduce fatalities in motor vehicle accidents. However, children sitting in the front seat without a seat belt and infants in passenger-side rear-facing car seats are at risk for fatal injury. CONCLUSION: Air bags combined with seat belts are an effective means of reducing injury and death in adults during motor vehicle accidents. However, this study has documented a wide variety of ocular injuries associated with air bag deployment. It is hoped that researchers can develop modifications that continue to save lives while minimizing additional harm.  (+info)

Airbag associated fatal head injury: case report and review of the literature on airbag injuries. (4/79)

Airbags have been shown to significantly reduce mortality and morbidity in motor vehicle crashes. However, the airbag, like the seat belt, produces its own range of injuries. With the increasing use of airbags in the UK, airbag associated injuries will be seen more often. These are usually minor, but in certain circumstances severe and fatal injuries result. Such injuries have been described before in the medical literature, but hitherto most reports have been from North America. This is the first case report from the UK of serious injury due to airbag deployment and describes the case of a driver who was fatally injured when her airbag deployed in a moderate impact frontal collision where such severe injury would not normally have been anticipated. The range of airbag associated injuries is described and predisposing factors such as lack of seat belt usage, short stature, and proximity to airbag housing are discussed. The particular dangers airbags pose to children are also discussed.  (+info)

Child seating position and restraint use in three states. (5/79)

OBJECTIVE: Because of risks from deploying airbags to children in front seats, extensive publicity has been aimed at getting them restrained and in rear seats. The objective of this study was to assess restraint use and seating positions among children in vehicles with and without airbags. METHOD: Surveys were conducted in cities in Michigan, North Carolina, and Texas 1998. Restraint use and seating position were noted for all children, as well as their estimated age, driver belt use, airbag presence, and vehicle license plate number. RESULTS: Fewer children were observed in the front seats of vehicles with passenger airbags (24%) than in vehicles without them (36%). Most of the children seated in front were ages 7-12 (44%-61%), followed by 3-6 year olds (29%-35%). Very few children ages 0-2 were seated in front (5%-12%). The overwhelming majority of children ages 0-2 were restrained. However, children ages 3-6 seated in the front were least likely to be restrained and most likely to be improperly restrained. Restraint use was higher when the driver was belted, but about 30% of 3-6 year olds were unrestrained even with a belted driver. CONCLUSIONS: Efforts should continue to educate parents about the importance of correct restraint use and rear seating for children, particularly once children move from child safety seats into adult belts. Efforts also should be made to enforce the seat belt laws that exist in every state.  (+info)

Driver air bag effectiveness by severity of the crash. (6/79)

OBJECTIVES: This analysis provided effectiveness estimates of the driver-side air bag while controlling for severity of the crash and other potential confounders. METHODS: Data were from the National Automotive Sampling System (1993-1996). Injury severity was described on the basis of the Abbreviated Injury Scale, Injury Severity Score, Functional Capacity Index, and survival. Ordinal, linear, and logistic multivariate regression methods were used. RESULTS: Air bag deployment in frontal or near-frontal crashes decreases the probability of having severe and fatal injuries (e.g., Abbreviated Injury Scale score of 4-6), including those causing a long-lasting high degree of functional limitation. However, air bag deployment in low-severity crashes increases the probability that a driver (particularly a woman) will sustain injuries of Abbreviated Injury Scale level 1 to 3. Air bag deployment exerts a net injurious effect in low-severity crashes and a net protective effect in high-severity crashes. The level of crash severity at which air bags are protective is higher for female than for male drivers. CONCLUSIONS: Air bag improvement should minimize the injuries induced by their deployment. One possibility is to raise their deployment level so that they deploy only in more severe crashes.  (+info)

Traumatic bilateral internal carotid artery dissection following airbag deployment in a patient with fibromuscular dysplasia. (7/79)

This case describes a 39-yr-old male, presenting with left hemiplegia after a road traffic accident involving frontal deceleration and airbag deployment. Brain computerized tomography (CT) scan revealed a right parietal lobe infarct. Contrast angiography demonstrated bilateral internal carotid artery dissection and fibromuscular dysplasia. The patient was treated with systemic heparinization. Neurological improvement, evidenced by full return of touch sensation, proprioception and nociception began 10 days after the injury. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of carotid artery dissection associated with airbag deployment. Forced neck extension in such settings may result in carotid artery dissection because of shear force injury at the junction of the extracranial and intrapetrous segments of the vessel. Clinicians should consider carotid artery injury when deterioration in neurological status occurs after airbag deployment. We propose that the risk of carotid artery dissection was increased by the presence of fibromuscular dysplasia.  (+info)

Mortality reduction with air bag and seat belt use in head-on passenger car collisions. (8/79)

To assess the efficacy of occupant protection systems, the authors measured the mortality reduction associated with air bag deployment and seat belt use for drivers involved in head-on passenger car collisions in the United States. They used a matched case-control design of all head-on collisions involving two passenger cars reported to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System in 1992-1997, and driver mortality differences between the paired crash vehicles for air bag deployment and seat belt use were measured with matched-pair odds ratios. Conditional logistic regression was used to adjust for multiple effects. There were 9,859 head-on collisions involving 19,718 passenger cars and drivers. Air bag deployment reduced mortality 63% (crude odds ratio (OR) = 0.37, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.32, 0.42), while lap-shoulder belt use reduced mortality 72% (OR = 0.28, 95% CI: 0.25, 0.31). In a conditional logistic model that adjusted for vehicle (rollover, weight, age) and driver (age, sex) factors, air bags (OR = 0.71, 95% CI: 0.58, 0.87) and any combination of seat belts (OR = 0.25, 95% CI: 0.22, 0.29) were both associated with reduced mortality. Combined air bag and seat belt use reduced mortality by more than 80% (OR = 0.18, 95% CI: 0.13, 0.25). Thus, this study confirms the independent effect of air bags and seat belts in reducing mortality.  (+info)

to the editor: Exposure to high noise levels associated with air bag deployment during an automobile accident may result in irreversible hearing loss. Laboratory studies have established that peak acoustic pressure of 170 dB produced during air bag deployment can induce harmful inner ear effects.1 In these air bag studies, the greatest hearing loss has occurred at 4,000 Hz.. In my practice, I have seen this pattern of hearing loss in patients exposed to air bag deployment. These patients showed the greatest hearing loss in the range of 3,000 to 6,000 Hz. Since the loss occurs above the speech frequency range of 500 to 2,000 Hz, it may not be immediately apparent to the patient; audiologic testing is required to detect hearing loss in this range.. However, the injury to the ear may manifest as tinnitus, which some of my patients have reported. Tinnitus is commonly caused by damage to the inner ear and is usually associated with hearing loss in frequencies above the speech frequency range. Thus, ...
Daystars New Air Bag Cradle will get back your suspension travel! Keeps the benefits of air bags while maintaining suspension travel. With most air bag systems, the lower air bag mount is placed above the leaf spring significantly reducing wheel travel by design. Your air bag system should compliment your truck, not inhibit its ability.

The Air Bag Cradle fits most full-size pick up trucks and SUVs running 6-inch diameter bellowstyle air bags. Features: ...
The air bag system is described in terms of four basic elements: the crash sensors and controls, the inflator, the air bag itself, and the diagnostic circuitry. A general discussion of these elements is provided and a review of air bag related injuries is also presented which includes data from various sources such as the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, Transport Canada, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The most frequently occurring accident type is the frontal collision and has been the main focus of safety efforts with regard to restraint systems. Air bags are an effective injur/prevention device, however their deployment can introduce new injury mechanisms. Air bags save lives and decrease the severity of major injuries in exchange for increasing the number of minor injuries. Certain risk factors exist during an accident involving air bag deployment including occupants sitting in close proximity to ...

Since they were mandated in new automobiles beginning in 1989, air bags have undoubtedly saved lives and prevented numerous accidents. But a recent rash of defective air bags incidents is cause for concern for driver and passenger safety.. Since 2011, air bag problems were responsible for the recall of 7.75 million vehicles. This year alone, 1.5 million vehicles have been recalled for possible defective air bags. Honda and Toyota have issued 22 recalls in 2013, covering 18 different models, over this issue. In January, General Motors announced a recall of almost 4,000 vehicles due to air bag concerns, and Chrysler recalled 750,000 Jeep vehicles in November 2012 for faulty air bags.. Hondas 2013 recall is the automakers second recent action in response to problems with the safety devices. Late in 2011, the automaker issued a recall following a number of accidents involving improperly inflating air bags, including two that resulted in fatalities.. Problems with Defective Air Bags. The issues ...
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) withdraws its March 19, 2002, notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), which proposed requiring each commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operating in interstate commerce to display a label applied by the vehicle manufacturer or a registered importer to document the vehicles compliance with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs) in effect as of the date of manufacture. We issued the NPRM in coordination with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which published on the same day three companion notices related to the FMVSS certification requirement. Although the NPRM would have applied to all CMVs operated in the United States, its greatest impact would have been on motor carriers domiciled in Canada and Mexico. In withdrawing the NPRM, we conclude the proposed FMVSS certification label requirement is not necessary to ensure the safe operation of CMVs on our nations highways. Vehicles operated by ...
I too question the validity of these numbers. They smack of governmental cooking of the data to get the desired results. I believe in wearing seatbelts for personal protection in case of an accident. I do not think that I need to be protected from myself. That is the agenda of the NHTSA and the insurance industry in my opinion. Stephen C.

DETROIT (AP) - Stellantis is recalling more than 266,000 pickup trucks mainly in North America because the side air bags can explode without warning and hurl shrapnel into the cabin.. Its the second major recall of pickup trucks in the past two months for the same problem.. Stellantis, formerly Fiat Chrysler, says the recall covers covers certain Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy duty pickups from the 2015 through 2020 model years. Also included are some previous generation Ram 1500 pickups known as the Classic, from 2015 through 2020. The latest version of the Ram 1500 is not affected.. Stellantis says in a statement Friday that the air bag inflators in the pickups were contaminated with moisture during a suppliers manufacturing process. Metal canisters holding the inflator can rupture, even if the air bags are not deployed in a crash.. One inflator ruptured, but Stellantis says there have been no injuries.. The company says it will notify customers when they can schedule service. Owners with fears or ...
When Ralph Nader wrote his book Unsafe At Any Speed in 1965, he documented how unsafe the Chevrolet Corvair was, and how General Motors and other car manufacturers opposed any effort to require safety features like seat belts because they didnt want to spend money on such safety features. The safety measures that he wanted car makers to implement would cost about $700 per car; the car makers were in fact spending about 23 cents a car on safety features.. The publication of Unsafe At Any Speed and the National Academy of Sciences report Accidental Death and Disability-The Neglected Disease of Modern Society led to Congressional hearings , legislation to require installation of seat belts, and adoption of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was formed in 1970, and has been responsible for investigating accidents and developing and implementing safety standards in vehicle and road design. Since safety became an important ...
An idiot light , sometimes tell-tale, is an indicator of malfunction of a system within a motor vehicle by an illuminated symbol or text legend. The idiot light terminology arises from popular frustration with automakers use of lights for crucial functions which could previously be monitored by gauges, so a troublesome condition could be detected and corrected early. Such early detection of problems with, for example, engine temperature or oil pressure or charging system operation is not possible via an idiot light, which lights only when a fault has already occurred - thus providing no advance warnings or details of the malfunctions extent. The Hudson automobile company was the first to use lights instead of gauges for oil pressure and the voltmeter, starting in the mid-1930s. Automotive tell-tales are regulated by automobile safety standards worldwide. In the United States, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 101 includes tell-tales in its ...
TOKYO (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling nearly 650,000 vehicles in Japan and repeating a recall for problems with front passenger air bag inflators announced last year, seeking to fix some 2.27 million vehicles.. The company, the worlds biggest automaker, said Wednesday that it was renotifying owners of some vehicles involved in a 2013 safety recall of 2.14 million vehicles. It said the initial recall was based on incomplete serial numbers from the part supplier, Japans Takata Corp.. The inflators contained improperly made propellant that could cause them to work abnormally, and possibly cause fires, in case of a crash. Toyota said it had received one report of a burn on a seat cover from faulty air bag deployment.. The recall involves about 20 Toyota models, including some Corolla compacts and Tundra pickups made in 2003-2004 and some 2002-2004 Lexus SC 430 coupes made in the U.S. The models being recalled in Japan were made in 2000-2003.. Toyota has been striving to restore its ...
Kylan Langlinais died on April 9th when her car crashed into a utility pole in Lafayette, Louisiana. Upon impact, Langlinaiss air bag exploded, but with too much force. Shrapnel ejected from the airbag and punctured Langlinaiss right carotid artery, causing her death. Several doctors did exploratory surgery and concluded that the injury from the exploding air bag directly caused her death, as she had no other injuries. Langlinais mother received a recall notice from Honda in connection with the airbags just two days after her daughters car accident.. According to KOIN6, Langlinaiss mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Honda and Takata claiming that the two companies covered up the air bag defect for more than ten years. In May, Tanaka finally recalled 33.8 million air bag inflators, after much pressure from the government. This was the largest auto recall in United States history. Although the company is still trying to determine the cause of the defect, it is possible that the ...
Continental Tire North America, Inc., (Continental), has determined that certain passenger car tires manufactured between March of 2007 and June of 2009 did not fully comply with paragraphs S5.5(e) and S5.5(f) of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles.

Abstract: Rollover crashworthiness for passenger vehicles is currently evaluated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 216 static roof strength compliance test. However, research clearly shows that the static test is inadequate in evaluating a vehicles injury potential performance in a real-world rollover event. Studies previously conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show a general relationship between a vehicles Strength-to-Weight-Ratio (SWR) and its real world injury potential. Although this general relationship is fairly accurate for most vehicles, there are many individual vehicle anomalies. The real world injury performance of the vehicles which make up these anomalies depends much less on the static roof strength (as measured in a FMVSS 216 test) and more on the dynamic performance of the roof and occupant protection systems during a real world rollover (as simulated on the Jordan Rollover System [JRS]). Repeatable dynamic crash tests are used by ...
Improved survival rates and earlier discharge of preterm (,37 weeks gestation at birth) and low birth weight (,2500 g at birth) infants have increased the number of small infants who are being transported in private vehicles. Car safety seats that are used correctly are 71% effective in preventing fatalities attributable to passenger car crashes in infants.1 To ensure that preterm and low birth weight infants are transported safely, the proper selection and use of car safety seats or car beds are necessary.. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213, which establishes design and dynamic performance requirements for child-restraint systems, applies to children weighing up to 65 lb. However, the standard has no minimum weight limit and does not address the relative hypotonia and risk of airway obstruction in preterm or low birth weight infants. Most rear-facing car safety seats are designated by the manufacturer for use by infants weighing more than 4 or 5 lb, with some designated for use ...

Federal auto safety regulators are allowing General Motors to delay a large recall of potentially defective air bags, giving the company time to prove that the devices are safe and to possibly avoid a huge financial hit. The unusual move by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration buys time for GM to do long-term tests of Takata air bag inflators in older trucks and SUVs including its top-selling vehicle, the Chevrolet Silverado pickup. The recall also covers the GMC Sierra pickup and many popular full-size SUVs from the 2007 to 2011 model years. The testing could help GM fend off several recalls totaling 6.8 million trucks and SUVS with the same inflators that ultimately could cost the company $870 million, according to a GM filing with securities regulators. The delay also pushes the decision into the administration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has stated that he wants to get rid of unnecessary government regulation. Takata uses ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to
From 1987 to 2012, frontal airbags have saved the lives of nearly 40,000 Americans. Thats enough people to fill AT&T Park in San Francisco almost to capacity. Of the more than 224 million cars and light trucks on United States roads, more than 163 million have driver airbags and an additional 144 million of these also have passenger airbags.. Although airbags have dramatically improved driver and passenger safety overall, defective airbags have been responsible for serious and sometimes fatal injuries to consumers. Common airbag injuries include airbag burns, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, vision or hearing loss, decapitation, and other serious injuries to the head, torso and arms.. If you or a loved one was injured due to a faulty airbag, you should understand the legal rights that every California consumer has. This post provides a basic introduction to defective airbag lawsuits in California. First, we discuss common causes of airbag defects that have lead to serious injuries in the ...
In 2003, Tennessee traffic records show 37,784 automobile accidents involved a deployed airbag, while an additional 371 vehicles had the airbags turned off.. The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration identified roughly 175 fatalities caused by airbag accidents, while 104 of these fatalities included children. Of course, the first airbag fatality was not recorded until 1994, when they were becoming more common in automobiles.. Essentially, an airbag is a device used to protect individuals while traveling in our vehicles in the case of an automobile accident. There are typically a variety of airbags that deploy in modern day vehicles to protect from all angles and to aid in preventing injuries.. If you or someone you love has been involved in an automobile accident which resulted in an injury caused by an airbag, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages. Our attorneys believe that if a negligent individual causes an accident, they should be held ...

June 30, 2016 (Washington D.C.) -- New test data on a particular subset of defective Takata air bag inflators in certain model-year 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles show a far higher risk of ruptures during air bag deployment, prompting an urgent call from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to ensure that unrepaired vehicles in this population are found and fixed before they cause further injuries or fatalities ...
In a message dated 96-12-11 11:07:58 EST, [email protected] (Dan Masi) writes: ,, Sorry if I missed the answer to this question already, but: what does one do in an A8, which has airbags in the rear sides? Id assume youd put the baby carrier in the center of the rear seat, but still... and what if you have twins? Can you not carry them safetly in an A8? ,, You are correct in suggesting that the center, rear seat is the preferred location for a properly secured child seat. However, I dont subscribe to the notion that carrying children in the back seat, next to the side impact air bags, is inherently more dangerous than in a car without them. But if a person really thought that rear seat occupants were safer _without_ the side impact air bags on the A8, they can readily be deactivated. In the case of side air bags - since they are not a federally mandated safety item - deactivation is legal, reversable and the dealer can do it at the customers request. Before all of you A8 owners rush out ...

In a review of 540 crashes in which the steering-wheel airbag deployed, 38% of the drivers sustained some level of upper extremity injury. The majority of these were AIS-1 injuries including abrasions, contusions and small lacerations. In 18 crashes the drivers sustained AIS-2 or-3 level upper extremity injuries, including fractures of the radius and/or ulna, or of the metacarpal bones, all related to airbag deployments. It was determined that six drivers sustained the fracture(s) directly from the deploying airbag or the airbag module cover. The remaining 12 drivers had fractures from the extremity being flung into interior vehicle structures, usually the instrument panel. Most drivers were taller than 170 cm and, of the 18 drivers, 10 were males ...
To provide a method for easily discriminating used and unused gas generators from among gas generators for air bags separated from used cars in a car scrapping process. A method for discriminating between used and unused gas generators according to the present invention is a method for discriminating used and unused gas generators from among gas generators for air bags separated from used cars in a car scrapping process, and this method comprises the steps of: a) crushing used cars mounted with gas generators each having on a surface thereof a material discoloring according to the surface temperatures in actuating the gas generator to separate the gas generators, and b) discriminating the gas generators in which surfaces are discolored and the gas generators in which surfaces are not discolored from among the separated gas generators.

Airbags are not substitutes for seat belt and are designed to work in conjunction with seat belts. Expectant women should always wear a seat belt regardless of how far along in their pregnancy they are. There is, however, a specific way they should be sure to buckle up. Buckling up is second nature to some pregnant women, but doctors say some question if wearing a seat belt is safe for baby.. Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes. Since air bags deploy only once and deflate quickly after the initial impact, they will not be beneficial during a subsequent collision. Safety belts help reduce the risk of injury in many types of crashes. They help to properly position occupants to maximize the air bags benefits and they help restrain occupants during the initial and any following collisions.. I think women think that a seat belt may push against their abdomen and cause greater injury in the event of a motor vehicle accident, says Dr. Jerry ...

A rapid burning propellant charge for applications including igniters, launch eject motors, and gas generators for automobile air bags. The propellant charge comprises a reticulated substrate having a quantity of interconnected ligaments and a coating of solid propellant material on the ligaments. In order to provide a large amount of surface area for a fast burn time, interstices are between coated ligaments to define propellant surface area for combustion. In applications where minimum smoke is desired, the reticulated substrate is preferably composed of carbon, graphite, or a non-combustible material, and the solid propellant material is preferably a minimum smoke type.
The purpose of this investigation is to apply the neck injury criterion (NIC) Criterion to data measured in human subject tests. 70 volunteer tests and 28 cadaver tests were analyzed in order to investigate the movement of the human spine. The NIC was calculated for all these tests and compared to other data that could be of interest for neck injuries (for instance angular acceleration of the head). It is concluded that the NIC in conjunction with other parameters is a useful indicator for the prediction of neck injuries following rear end impacts.

The FHWA proposes to implement section 4009 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) by amending the safety fitness procedures of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. This action would prohibit all motor carriers found by the Secretary to be unfit from operating commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce. The FHWA is proposing to treat an unsatisfactory safety rating under the safety fitness procedure regulations as a determination of unfitness. The FHWA also would revise the listing for locations of motor carrier and highway safety field offices to reflect recent changes to the Federal Highway Administration organizational structure ...
A BioRID (biofidelic rear impact dummy) representing a 50th percentile adult male was seated in the front passenger seat of six new vehicle models in a series of low-speed crash tests. The neck injury criterion (NIC) and other dummy responses that may indicate whiplash injury risk were recorded. Both front-into- rear and rear-into-barrier tests with an average velocity change of 11 km/h were conducted. Head restraints were tested in both adjusted (up) and unadjusted (down) positions. Damage to all models was minor, and longitudinal vehicle accelerations were low (less than 7 g). Neck extension angles and bending moments were much less than injury assessment reference values (IARV) (80 degrees and 57 Nm, respectively), indicating low risk of hyperextension injuries. Neck tension and transverse forces also were less than IARVs used to indicate the risk of more serious neck injuries. NICs recorded on the BioRID during these tests were in the range recorded from volunteers who did not experience ...
Press Release issued Feb 28, 2017: Sensors are being used in automobiles since 1960s and they have undergone an array of developments with the increasing requirements of the automobile owners. During 1970s, microprocessors based engine control module was made to meet the emission norms in the U.S. Passenger car sensor detects the changes in the state of its parts and indicates it to the user about it in order to prevent mishaps. The increasing safety concern among passenger car owners is the key drivers for the passenger car sensors market. Passenger car sensors are mainly used in powertrain, chassis and body control where they monitor temperature, pressure, currents, vacuum and other related factors.

The Honda Pilot was introduced in the 2003 model year.. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of the Pilot in two 40 mph frontal offset crash tests into deformable barriers. In the first test, the frontal airbags deployed late, with the result that high forces were recorded on the dummys head, indicating the likelihood of head injuries. This led Honda to modify the frontal airbag deployment characteristics on models produced after August 18, 2003. Also, Honda initiated a safety improvement campaign to modify at its cost vehicles produced earlier.. The Institute tested a second Pilot with the modified airbags, and the airbags inflated much earlier. Ratings of the Pilot are based on the results of the second test, except structural performance is based on both tests.. Honda has told the Institute that the 2006 models are sufficiently re-engineered that the the ratings for 2003-05 models will not carry over.. ...

Washington - A group of House Democrats is reintroducing sweeping auto safety reform legislation a year after General Motors Co. recalled 2.6 million vehicles now linked to at least 57 deaths, reported The Detroit News.. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., is reintroducing a measure that would dramatically hike the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations auto safety budget by at least $100 million by 2017 by imposing a $3 fee on all new car sales that would rise to $9 by 2018. The bill is backed by Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., and at least four other Democrats, her office said.. Despite withering criticism of NHTSA and congressional hearings into GMs delayed recall, as well another round of hearings into millions of defective Takata air bags, the prospects for sweeping auto safety reform legislation are hazy. Many auto industry officials think it is unlikely major reforms are approved. In 2010, after harsh criticism of NHTSA after Toyota Motor Corp. recalled millions of vehicles, Congress ...
Seat belts were invented by English engineer George Cayley to use on his glider, in the mid-19th century. [4] In 1946, Dr. C. Hunter Shelden opened a neurological practice at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, California. In the early 1950s, Dr. Shelden made a major contribution to the automotive industry with his idea of retractable seat belts. This came about from his care of the high number of head injuries coming through the emergency room.[5] He investigated the early seat belts whose primitive designs were implicated in these injuries and deaths. To reduce the high level of injuries he was seeing, he proposed, in late 1955, retractable seat belts, recessed steering wheels, reinforced roofs, roll bars, automatic door locks, and passive restraints such as the air bag.[6] Subsequently, in 1966, Congress passed the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act requiring all automobiles to comply with certain safety standards. American car manufacturers Nash (in 1949) and Ford (in 1955) ...

Background: Most traffic safety research projects require accurate real world data which is collected in different databases around the world. This is especially important since the results of these projects form the basis for new crash test procedures and standards. In many of these databases the involvement of the frontal structures of the car in frontal crashes is coded by using the SAE J224 practice (Society of Automobile Engineers). There were indications that by using this practice the database would contain an overestimate of the car frontal structure involvement in real world crashes. One purpose of this thesis is therefore to develop a new method for real world crash investigations to better address this issue. One purpose was also to adopt this method in a data collection of fatal crashes in Sweden and examine injury causation mechanisms. Studies shows that the commonly used Hybrid III dummy is not fully reproducing the kinematical behavior observed in frontal sled test with belted ...

The test car differed from our Tour SM in having leather, rather than nylon cloth-covered seats. These add a hefty 258 to the price, but their smoothness only accentuates the lack of sideways location, and the far from ideal placing of the unusual socket-clasped Toric seat belts did little to help.. Though a driver and one passenger could travel all day in the SM without getting uncomfortable - and arrive fresh at their destination - carrying four people for any distance is less satisfactory. The rear seats are well upholstered and nicely shaped but headroom and, more particularly, leg room are a problem, though rear passengers feet can be tucked under the front seats. In recognition of this, the front passengers seat has less adjustment than the drivers. Even someone of average height feels more comfortable with the passenger seat near its rearmost point.. One is forced to concede that in terms of packaging, the SM does not come out very well. Like many American cars of similar (and bigger) ...
