Advanced Crash Analysis Center Cooperative Research

The project will perform research in the areas of joint Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) vehicle model development, child safety research, and joint library operations. FHWA and NHTSA share requirements to conduct finite element crash simulations of vehicles to investigate vehicle and roadside hardware safety issues. Additionally, the Advanced Crash Analysis Center maintains a film library and conducts crash simulations on a range of highway and vehicle safety issues.
