ACTAR Posted Crash Test of Venture & Saturn on Facebook

Post by MSI »

Quick Pass reconstruction
  • demonstration of a Saturn running into a Venture.
  • Assumed/used approx weights 2700 lb Saturn into 3772 lb Venture
  • Actual weights, scale of the overhead video and therefore actual locations of evidence, unknown
  • Rough approximation and demonstration of ease of crash reconstruction with msmac3D
    IF ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS CRASH TEST Please send information to MSMAC3d@MCHENRYSOFTWARE.COM

Posted a second preliminary pass with sequential display, etc:

On Facebook ACTAR posted up a Venture and Saturn Crash Test
A post to the thread asked if any additional information, and the response said no.
So if anyone has addition la information please let us knows.
In the meantime we've done a quick preliminary msmac3D simulation of the crash
we provide the details so you can do a momentum analysis on the crash test
wil update with more information soon (it's the weekend! more next week!)
