Abstract Precise assessment of survivability in a dynamic crash environment, and possible processes to improve survivability usually require prolonged, meticulous multi-body structural analysis and a detailed vehicle structural model. However, to be useful in a post-accident investigation it is very important that any analysis tools are user-friendly, able to offer rapid answers, and not reliant on comprehensive structural models. This paper investigates the development of a simple model for rapid recreation of the motion of a crashing structure and occupants, as a step towards the advancement of a tool that would be useful in accident analysis.
