  • The influences of the length of the vehicle fronthood on the injury severity of pedestrian head in investigated. Based on the study, results showed that the established increased injury risk with short fronthoods is not based on the fronthood itself, but is more frequent even with pane impact at lower speeds. Short fronthoods appear to be more sensible provided the adjoining pane region is modified. An integrated line of fronthood and windscreen pane with a pronounced inclination appear to be… CONTINUE READING
