Advances in Side Airbag Systems

Thanks to years of research and development by vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, legislation, and the entire safety community, the side airbag has become a critical safety device to reduce injury and save lives. This collection of technical research highlights the progression of this essential safety feature, providing a complete and thorough perspective through the analysis of both early patents and recent side airbag system developments.

Editor Donald E. Struble's introduction chronicles the progress made since the mid-1980s in offering improved side impact protection to the motoring public. Authored by leading experts in their respective fields, this book features 26 landmark technical papers. Its scope includes not only thorax airbags, but other inflatable devices designed for side impacts and rollovers.
