CRASH3 based computer programs model a vehicle structure as a homogeneous body. Crush stiffness coefficients determined from full-overlap crash tests, when used in these computer programs allow for an accurate reconstruction of collisions where the accident damage profiles are full-overlap. The structures of vehicles, however, might not be purely homogeneous in their crush response. How accurately do crush stiffness coefficients that were determined from full-overlap crash tests represent thedoi:10.4271/980024 fatcat:z6q36zvcffamzc6twf7vkzjipe
