This books reviews and brings readers up to date with the latest research knowledge on road traffic safety.
It describes and discusses mathematical descriptions of the process of a motor vehicle crash and indicates the various factors that impact on collision models. It tackles also vehicle stability and shows how the forces generated in crashes result in different extents of post-accident repair. Mathematical models that simulate vehicle stability data are compared with those of real vehicles. Practical uses of the models are explained to readers.
The book will be of interest to researchers in transport and vehicle technology well as automotive industry professionals.
