Specialists in automotive safety look at accident data, laboratory test results and instrumentation, mathematical models, the development of anthropometric test devices, and other aspects of biomechanics that are informing efforts to make vehicles safer. The topics include the finite element simulation of ankle and foot injury in frontal crashes, head injuries in impact between vehicles and pedestrians, and an energy analysis of automotive seat systems. Simulation is increasingly important with rising concern about the welfare of crash dummies. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
