    Timeline of a Car Crash


    This is a reconstruction of a crash involving a stationary Ford Falcon XT sedan being struck in the driver’s door by another vehicle travelling at 50 km/h [30 mph].

    0 milliseconds – An external object touches the driver’s door.

    1 ms – The car’s door pressure sensor detects a pressure wave.

    2 ms – An acceleration sensor in the C-pillar behind the rear door also detects a crash event.

    2.5 ms - A sensor in the car’s centre detects crash vibrations.

    5 ms – Car’s crash computer checks for insignificant crash events, such as a shopping trolley impact or incidental contact. It is still working out the severity of the crash. Door intrusion structure begins to absorb energy.

    6.5 ms – Door pressure sensor registers peak pressures.

    7 ms – Crash computer confirms a serious crash and calculates its actions.

    8 ms – Computer sends a “fire” signal to side airbag. Meanwhile, B-pillar begins to crumple inwards and energy begins to transfer into cross-car load path beneath the occupant.

    8.5 ms – Side airbag system fires.

    15 ms – Roof begins to absorb part of the impact. Airbag bursts through seat foam and begins to fill.

    17 ms – Cross-car load path and structure under rear seat reach maximum load.
    Airbag covers occupant’s chest and begins to push the shoulder away from impact zone.

    20 ms – Door and B-pillar begin to push on front seat. Airbag begins to push occupant’s chest away from the impact.

    27 ms – Impact velocity has halved from 50 km/h to 23.5 km/h. A “pusher block” in the seat moves occupant’s pelvis away from impact zone. Airbag starts controlled deflation.

    30 ms – The Falcon has absorbed all crash energy. Airbag remains in place. For a brief moment, occupant experiences maximum force equal to 12 times the force of gravity.

    45 ms – Occupant and airbag move together with deforming side structure.

    50 ms – Crash computer unlocks car’s doors. Passenger safety cell begins to rebound, pushing doors away from occupant.

    70 ms – Airbag continues to deflate. Occupant moves back towards middle of car.
    Engineers classify crash as “complete”.

    150-300 ms – Occupant becomes aware of collision.
