Fire Safety: Fire Statistics

Organized by the Fire Safety Committee, this session uses

transportation and fire databases to characterize vehicle fire

circumstances in the real world. Papers pulling chiefly from

transportation databases will focus on fires and rollovers that occur

after crashes or rollovers while other papers will address all types

of vehicle fires. Limitations of the data will also be addressed.

Organizers:

Thomas M. DeSantis, Motor Vehicle Incident Investigations; Dr.

Rose M. Ray, Exponent Inc.; Marty Ahrens, National Fire Protection

Association

Noise and Vibration: Advanced

Applications (Part 1 of 6)

This session deals with new and advanced applications of noise

and vibration technologies. The papers in this session cover a

range of topics including numerical and experimental techniques

for noise and vibration analysis, development and application of

NVH materials, and new approaches to NVH problems.

Organizers:

Barry Wyerman PhD, Janesville Acoustics

Occupant Protection - Accident

Reconstruction (Part 1 of 6)

The 2008 SAE Accident Reconstruction Session again includes

papers with a wide range of topics related to the reconstruction of

vehicular accidents. Topics this year with multiple papers include

vehicle dynamics, characterization of vehicle rollover accidents and

the modeling of the acceleration pulse in vehicular collisions. The

topics of additional papers includes biomechanical considerations

related to vehicular accident reconstruction, photogrammetric

analysis, the performance of event data recorders (EDR), collisions

involving motorcycles and sideswipe accidents.

Organizers:

Matthew Brach, Brach Engineering; Raymond M. Brach, Univ. of

Notre Dame; Stein E. Husher, Michael S. Varat, KEVA Engineering

Occupant Protection - Safety Test

Methodology (Part 1 of 2)

The Safety Test Methodology session presents papers in

advancement of testing and modeling of automotive safety-related

technologies. Presentations cover topics dealing with (1) full/

component test methodologies pertaining to interior impact, rear

impact and rollover, (2) image analysis applications, and (3) special

subjects such as driver drowsiness, hybrid battery testing, and

airbag module test methodology.
