What is the EES? Energy Equivalent Speed?

Post by MSI »

The EES is:
  • "energy equivalent speed (EES),i.e. the vehicle speed equivalent to the energy consumed to cause the vehicle deformation" (from Uncertainty of EES)
    or
    "The EES is determined as a measure for the kinetic energy dissipated by the vehicle during the contact phase, i.e. the energy converted to thermal energy through deformation."
The EES is a Damage Analysis method like CRASH or other damage based analysis methods
