This book explains how the car, as a structure, behaves in various
types of accidents. In order to understand such behaviour the
special features of car structures and the elementary physics of
car collisions are explained. These ideas are the applied to
roll-overs, side impacts, head-on collisions, etc. The reader is
then shown how accidents can be analysed. The existing
international rules for the design of car structures are also
studied and it soon becomes apparent that these rules are
inadequate in many respects. This is probably the main reason why
racing drivers survive the severest accidents but many ordinary
motorists do not survive crashes at one quarter of the speed.
