Extreme Partial Collision

Flash content

In August 2009 a series of crash tests was undertaken using a variety of vehicles as part of the ongoing research programme at GBB(UK) Ltd.

To investigate extreme partial collisions the GBB tests CT08/09 and CT09/09 were designed to analyse a collision between exterior mirrors.

These incidents are commonplace.

The vehicles used for the test were as follows:

Volvo 960 3.0


Medium to large-sized 5-door estate 3.0l

Approximate mass: 1490 kg.

Ford Focus


Medium-sized 5-door hatchback 1.6l

Approximate mass: 1180 kg.
