AiS Challenge Team Abstract


Team Number: 050

School Name: Mesa Alta Junior High

Area of Science: Physics

Project Title:



In our program we will be testing the damage to cars that hit walls at various speeds. By using a virtual crash-test, the cost of crash tests should be greatly reduced.

We plan to accomplish this by getting a virtual tool and creating a realistic simulation of what it would look like to see a crash test and allowing the user to set the height of the wall and speed of the car. We will use the average density and height of an every-day wall. Then we will create a virtual 'crashing' effect.
