Throw Distance Model and Contact Force of Bicyclist in Traffic Accident Based on PC-CRASH


Article Preview

Computer simulations, such as PC-CRASH, were used in this paper to develop simulation model of car-bicycle/bicyclist crash. The change law of throw ditance which belongs to the first falling point and final falling point of bicyclist were studied on. Through researching the parameters obtained in the process of computer simulation, we concluded the stress size on the important part such as head, chest and knee of bicyclist in different accident modality. This research result provides a good idea in car-bicycle/bicyclist crash reconstruction.
