Dynamic Crash Testing


SAFE Laboratories has the capability to execute full scale vehicle crash tests as well as sled testing. Frontal, rear and side impacts can be conducted with Delta V's up to 35 mph and beyond.  Dynamic crash testing can be used to assess:

    • occupant safety systems
    • restraints
    • airbags
    • seating systems
    • structural deformations
    • padding


    Crash impact conditions consistent with:

    • Real world accidents
    • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airworthiness Standards
