The accidents concerned involve the second impact' Five collision tests involving second impact were used to evaluate the system. The simulation results are found to be in good agreement with realworld test results' 1. FOREWORI) In the field of traffic accidents authenticating, estimating the impact velocity and trajectory of vehicles is often the main goal of an accident analysis in order to establish accident course and transact accident responsibility justly in the light of the law Cartocar collisions are a common tra{iic accident form. Its impact analytical solutions have aroused the attention of the accident investigators. The authors published a cartocar analytical impact model not involving the second impact and the animate reconstructing program three years ago. The video and data of sixteen collisions tests provided by Japan utomobile Research Institute (JRI) was used to test and verify its validity. The second impact was found in some videos of collision tests provided by JRI. nd specifically this Journal ol thc Easlern sia Srciety lirr Transportation Studies, Vol.3, No.l, September, 1999
2 238 L,ang WEI,Hirotoshi ISHIKW, Yinsan CHEN, Rui FU and Tho CHEN kind of accident was called cartocar impact accident involving the second impact. Cartocar impact accident, as a special traflic accident form and its analytical simulation and reconstruction method has aroused great interest for the accident investigators. ut, many realworld cartocar collisions involve the second impact (It can be deduced by check the mark on the car body whether the second impact occulred or not). For this kind of accidents, the second impact center position in the ground coordinate system can't be obtained by investigating the accident site, besides, the instantaneous motion state and velocity during the second impact is unknown. It is therefore much more complex to simulate and reconstruct cartocar impact.accidents involving the second impact. Furthermore, it is difficult to verify through tests. The method used to simulate cartocar impact accident involving second impact hasn't been found till now. This paper improves the algorithms [Lang, Hirotoshi and Takashi (1995)], [Lang, Yinsan, Takashi and Hirotoshi (1996)1, [Hirotoshi (1995)], and develops the methods dealing with reconstruction of cartocar collisions accidents involving the second impact, based on the analysis for a number ofcartocar collision tests. The video and data offive collision tests were used to test and veri$ its validity. 2.THE SIMULTION SYSTEM FOR CRTOCR IMPCT CCIDENT INVOLVING THE SECOND IMPCT The meaning of the notation and subscript is as follows: (NOTTTON) X, Y: the centroid coordinate of vehicle in the ground coordinate system r, 4 : the centroid coordinate of vehicle in the second impact coordinate system( r k 4) 0 : the angle between the longitudinal central line of vehicle and x axle m : vehicle mass V: velocity w: angular velocity p : radius of gytation P: impact momentum e : restitution coefficient L: wheel spacing : axle spacing Lr: distance from the centroid to fore axle L, : distance from the mark center of second impact to centroid (m) ( It is positive in the front of the centroid; negative behind the centroid.)

The reason that second impact occurs after the first impact is the sharp rotation of impact vehicles. It can be inferred that second impact mainly occured on the two sides of vehicle (including the end of the sides). dditionally, studying numerous data of collision tests, we can infer that the impulsive force of second impact is less than that of the first impact. In view of this, the method of asymptotic approximate which used to compute the second impact center position was presented. Firstly, under the condition of neglecting the second impact, on the basis of the method of reference [Lang, Yinsan, Takashi and Hirotoshi (1996)], the trajectory of the second impact mark center point can be computed in the light of the impact and rest position. Then, the approximate coordinate (X*, Y*) of second impact center can be obtained. The formula is as follows: Where I x,) ltx,;,^, * tr i = it Y,^i * I = il{min(dr, + 0) U [mind*, 0minfl] dr,=m X *i\ l2\ Y*,i) t2 ), (i = 1,2,o o o,n)l (i =l,2,ooo,n) (l) (2) lkt^, f,=1 l[<a^,  ot')l  0u,) ,rll lon, l0 n,  0r,l< (r / 2)  0r,l> (tr I 2) (i =l,2,ooc,n) Journal of lhc Eastern sia S<rcicly lirr Transportation Studies, Vol.3, No.l, September, 1999

Gim and P. E Nikavesh tire model [Gwanghun and Parviz (1990)], [Gwanghun and Parviz (1991)]) In this subsystem, the variables such as velocity and angular velocity can be obtained in the light of second impact center and the rest positions [Lang, Hirotoshi and Takashi (1995)], [Lang, Yinsan, Takashi and Hirotoshi (1996)]. Its computational flow diagram is shown in Figure l.

This computational model is used to describe the relation of the motion variables between the instant preimpact and postimpact. When the second impact center was obtained, the postimpact instantaneous velocity and angular velocity can be deduced from preimpact velocity of the second impact. s shown in Figure 2, set the side of struck vehicle as the impact surface, and the second impact center k as origin. The t axie is tangential to the impact surface, parallel to the longitudinal central line of vehicle body, then the second impact coordinate system t k 4 is built.

CONCLUSIONS ased on the simulation model for cartocar single impact accidents and quoted normal and tangential restitution coeffrcients in this paper, the simulation system for reconstructing cartocar collisions involving second impact is described. Using the field data such as impact position, rest position, impact marks on the car body, this system can obtain the kinematic state of accident vehicles, the second impact position and impact velocity. Five collision tests involving second impact were used to evaluate this system, and the simulation results were found to be in good agreements with the realworld test results.
