Automotive Safety Handbook

This book was required for a class. I like having statistical data to relay to people ,to make an argument convincing. This book has changed my views on my own car and on the kind of vehicle I next obtain. Scary at times are the statistics. I want to give a big shout out to all the Mechanical Engineering Students at City College of New York. AIAA, NSBE, ASME, ASRAE clubs and all my friends. -Stokely

Examining the state-of-the-art in passenger car vehicle safety, Automotive Safety Handbook is the essential reference book on safety engineering.  The first and only book with extensive coverage of both active and passive safety systems, Automotive Safety Handbook describes basic relationships and new developments related to accident avoidance (including the man/machine interface) and mitigation of injuries.

In addition to detail on accident avoidance, occupant protection, and biomechanics, the book features thorough discussion of the interrelationships among the occupant, the vehicle, and the restraint system (in frontal, lateral, and rear impacts and rollover).  Other subjects covered include safety legislation, vehicle body and interior design, accident simulation tests, pedestrian protection, and comptatability.
