Abstract

The modeling of car body deformation is crucial in crash analysis, together with the determination of the energy which was absorbed by the deformation. This energy can help us determine the corresponding EES value. These parameters are of key importance, but on the other, hand their precise determination is a very difficult task. However, by utilizing the results of the crash tests and the method of digital image processing, it is possible to state the absorbed energy through the digital processing of the photos.

Keywords:

car body deformation; digital image processing; energy equivalent; speed; interpolation
