Mini and microcar bumpers
IIHS news release • June 11, 2009 Mini and microcar bumpers allow pricey damage; none of the 7 tested rates good under new system ARLINGTON, VA — Urban drivers often pick mini and microcars because they're affordable, fuel efficient, and easy to park on city streets. Fender-benders are hazards of urban driving, and just one of them can add up to thousands of dollars in repair costs because the bumpers don't adequately protect vehicles from damage. None of the bumpers on 7 mini and microcars the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently tested earns the top rating of good, and just 1, the Smart Fortwo, is acceptable. Five out of the 7 earn poor ratings and 1 earns a marginal. Full text of news release: http://www.iihs.org/news/rss/pr061109.html

Low-speed vehicle crash tests
IIHS news release • May 20, 2010 ARLINGTON, VA - Low-speed vehicles and minitrucks shouldn't share busy public roads with regular traffic More states are allowing a relatively new breed of vehicle on public roads, but crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show why the mix of low-speed vehicles (LSVs) or minitrucks and regular traffic is a deadly combination. LSVs are designed for tooling around residential neighborhoods, and minitrucks are for hauling cargo off-road. While these vehicles have a lot of appeal as a way to reduce emissions and cut fuel use, they don't have to meet the basic safety standards that cars and pickups do, and they aren't designed to protect their occupants in crashes.

Understanding Car Crashes: It's Basic Physics
What happens to vehicles and their occupants in crashes is determined by science. "You can't argue with the laws of physics," says Griff Jones, award-winning high school physics teacher who goes behind the scenes at the Institute's Vehicle Research Center to explore the basic science behind car crashes. Using a series of vehicle maneuvers on a test track plus filmed results of vehicle crash tests, Jones explains in anything but lecture style the concept of inertia, the relationship between crash forces and inertia, momentum and impulse, and a lot more. Quote from Paul G. Hewitt, the developer of the "Conceptual Physics" curriculum and author of the best selling text book by the same name: "The video "Understanding Car Crashes: It's Basic Physics" and accompanying teacher's guide are wonderful. The pacing is excellent, the coverage fascinating, and most importantly, the physics is correct. It's a first rate teaching package. I give it five stars!"

Ford Expedition | 2007 | Curb Trip Rollover Crash Test | NHTSA | CrashNet1
2007 Ford Expedition Curb Trip Rollover Crash Test This curb trip rollover crash test was conducted to investigate the dynamics of belted occupants during rollover crashes. This test was conducted with a modified 2007 Ford Expedition moving at 33.1 km/h (20.6 mph), releasing the vehicle with its roll axis perpendicular to the direction of the curb trip fixture. The vehicle was modified by replacing the rear seat with a modified front seat to simulate similar characteristics in both seating positions. The center console was also removed. The OEM belts and buckles were replaced in all positions. The driver, left rear passenger were equipped with motorized and buckle pretensioner, and right front passenger position was equipped with a retractor and buckle pretension 3-PT belt system. The curtain air bags and pretensioners were fired manually at 0.1 second into the event. -- Thumbs up for the crash test dummies! More crash tests every week.

Safety consequences of vehicle size and weight
IIHS news release • April 14, 2009 New crash tests demonstrate the influence of vehicle size and weight on safety in crashes; results are relevant to fuel economy policies ARLINGTON, VA — Three front-to-front crash tests, each involving a microcar or minicar into a midsize model from the same manufacturer, show how extra vehicle size and weight enhance occupant protection in collisions. These Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests are about the physics of car crashes, which dictate that very small cars generally can't protect people in crashes as well as bigger, heavier models.

ADAC - Rollover crash test of compact convertibles
A rollover occurs in a convertible although very rare, but when it happens, it represents the highest loads on the body: for the heavily loaded roof area is also the weakest point. Therefore, the ADAC has simulated with four popular convertibles of the lower middle class a rollover to see how stable and reliable the windscreen frame and automatically extending roll-over bar. Because if a convertible may be safe here, then it must also create the other. The Opel Cascada shows how to do it. That on the other hand, the market leader Volkswagen with its own safety claim can not be just, is regrettable. What about the chances of survival of the occupants both front and rear, you will see the results in detai - on ADAC website http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/defaul t.aspx?ComponentId=208289&SourcePageId=31799#tabid=tab1 Opel Cascada The convertible from Opel has extensive safety features , the Cascada offers front and sides combined head - thorax airbags , belt tensioners for all seats . Behind the rear seats is the standard rollover protection system which is ignited pyrotechnic in an emergency. The A -pillar of the Opel Cascada is pressed on the passenger side by about 12 cm down. This strong deformation leads to head contact of the front passenger dummies with the ground. The impact of the head on the floor caused loads that have a high injury risk. Thanks to the well-functioning active roll bar and seat belt pretensioners for front seat occupants the head burden remains with the driver comparatively low, a head contact is avoided. http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/opel_c ascada.aspx?ComponentId=208336&SourcePageId=0 Renault Mégane CC The Renault Megane CC comes standard with front, side and head airbags . Also belt tensioners are fitted to the front seats. Without this charge is also an active rollover protection system . The front window frame of the Renault Megane CC is pressed over the entire width of the vehicle by about 5-7 cm downwards. Due to this deformation , a head contact of both front seat occupants done with the ground. The hard head impact leads to loads that exceed the biomechanical limits. http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/renaul t_megane.aspx?ComponentId=208398&SourcePageId=0 Peugeot 308 CC The Peugeot 308 CC offers a good safety features , it includes standard front , side and head airbags . Also belt tensioners are installed in the first row of seats. The active rollover protection system is used by the manufacturer default. The A -pillar of the Peugeot 308 CC is pressed on the passenger side by about 4 inches down. Due to this deformation of the head contact of the front passenger dummies can not be avoided with the bottom of the Peugeot . It depends on several occasions to head impacts both occupants of the first row of seats. The load values ​​were increased and it can be assumed that an increased risk of injury. http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/peugeo t_308.aspx?ComponentId=208354&SourcePageId=0 VW Golf Cabrio The VW Golf Cabriolet comes standard with front and side combined head-thorax airbags and a knee airbag for the driver . For the front passenger seat belt tensioners are fitted. The active rollover protection system comes as standard , it sits behind the head restraints in the second row . The A -pillars of the VW Golf Cabriolet are strongly deformed ; on the driver's side is pressed by 8 cm, the . , on the passenger side as much as 15 cm For this reason the VW Cabriolet offers from all four vehicles the most unstable rollover protection for the front seats. Unfortunately, this is also confirmed by the dynamic loads. It can be measured in the test head loads that exceed the biomechanical limits. Overall, both occupants of the front seats have contact with the ground . The survival space for the front seats is very limited after the experiment. So this was for the 5 % female (1.55 m ) at around 41 mm. This could not score for the 50 % - and 95 % man be achieved. Rating dynamic head load : poor Valuation of static head protection ( habitat ) : poor http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/vw_gol f.aspx?ComponentId=208401&SourcePageId=0
