This research project was carried out to investigate the crashworthiness and passenger safety of modified body-on-chassis buses. The intention of this research was to create data useful for future development of recommendations for bus body manufactures. The unique safety requirements and the lack of strict structural standards arouse the need for crashworthiness and safety evaluation for this category of vehicles.
