The three chambers are arranged so that two protrude out from the sides unfurling the 'sail,' with the third chamber located behind the sail that intends to help decrease the impact force. The sail is meant to catch the occupant in the initial stage of a crash, decreasing the force of the impact against the third chamber.
The 24th witness who was recalled to testify insisted several times that he is not a physicist and urged the court to refer to an expert in the field, for any confirmation regarding impact force determinations.
In fact, the goal was that the final concept would meet the British Standard for city bikes, which means passing five tests relating to impact force and fatigue cycle loads simulations.
These criteria include the pelvis impact force, pelvis impact energy, pelvis compression, and the impact velocity.
In this paper, using this collision simulation model, various installation situations of the containment wall were considered by the parameters (location and height of the wall) that affect the impact force and containment effects of the containment walls.
Earlier tests of different vehicles have shown a variety of factors that affect the curb impact force. These factors go beyond the standard vehicle parameters used for bearing rotating fatigue calculations, such axle weight, tire SLR, vehicle center of gravity height and track width.
Although the mining series uses the same basic technology as the standard series, the mining models have been designed to provide greater impact force at lower frequency.
This multistage reduction multiplies the impact force and results in higher first-pass yields.
To study behaviors and failure modes of the impact piers, it is necessary to accurately analyze the peak impact force, the maximum deformation, impact force, and deformation time histories of the impacted piers, which are also helpful to design protection schemes for piers against vehicle collision.
Just as Romanov suggested, Pose runners reduced the magnitude of the initial impact force and also reduced stress on the knee.
This study compared the kinetic roles of the upper extremities in the racket impact force generation between the OS and the SS for different-skill-level tennis players in two-handed backhand strokes.
As the classical dynamics method for the numerical analysis of the impact is not very convenient, generally rarely used, the second method is through establishment of the mathematical model of impact force for structure impact analysis, adding contact element at the impact site, which uses equivalent spring element and equivalent damper elements to, respectively, simulate interaction and energy dissipation during structural collision.
