At GBB, we believe that first-hand research is essential for knowledge and understanding of all aspects of road traffic accident investigation and this, combined with our experience, makes us a leader in the field of collision investigation and accident reconstruction.
This section of our site will provide an overview of our ongoing research and make available peer reviewed technical papers and crash test videos for viewing alongside the reports that we produce.
Below is a number of technical papers published by GBB and its experts:
Article Putting the 5mph Injury Threshold to the Test – September 2006
Deconstructing a Collision – March 2007
RSG Journey Data Used In Collision Investigation December 2007
Is the threshold for injury in whiplash really a delta-v of 3 mph? – June 2009
A Study Of Human Kinematic Response To Low Speed ‘Rear End’ Impacts Involving Vehicles Of Largely Differing Masses – November 2009
A Study Of Extreme Partial Collisions – December 2009
GBB Crash Testing
GBB has a long-standing programme of research that has focussed primarily at understanding the relationship between vehicle impact speed, speed changes during a collision (commonly referred to as “delta-V”), vehicle damage and the level of associated occupant displacement.
Each test that has been conducted over the years will be added to the site along with a detailed overview of the test.
Keep visiting our site in the near future to find out more!
