Hummer vs School Buss

Thursday, December 07, 2006

Hummers are cars made to be strong, because they where build first time for military and government.Now anybody who can afford one, can have one.As I've said Hummers are strong cars, when you are in a Hummer you feel like in a tank when you look at other smaller cars drivers, but watch out the School Buss is harder than your Hummer.

Except that's not a real Hummer (H1). That's a glorified Chevy Blazer or GMC Yukon. I'd like to see how a real Hummer would handle that bus.

I think a "real" Hummer would give that bus a good run for its money...

I'm amazed that it crumbled like that. Only reason the driver is alive, is because the driver side diden't hit the bus. With a car that big, I would think its frame would have some strength. A small Toyota would stand up better in this crash.

im impressed it survived as well as it did. those things are just minivan's with a stupid box shell. but to it's credit the driver walked away, somehow.

whoever titled this 'hummer vs school buss' is a moron.

i doubt that any small toyota would have done any better. look at the back wheels of the bus they are off the ground. a small toyota moving at the same speed would have been under the bus.

@Mr. Floppy
It's supposed to crumple like that. The "better" it holds up in a crash the more energy is going to be applied to your body to stop it from moving.

There's a reason why the driver was able to walk away from the accident.

What are you talking about, the same amount of energy is applied to your body either way. Energy is force times distance, if the distance was shorter (Less crumpling by the car) then the force is greater.

I'm pretty sure what you meant was "Force" and not energy :D Actually a better way to describe the accident's physics would be through impulse, which is force times time. And F = m * deltaV/t where the deltaV is the speed of the car, and t is the time it took for the car to come to a complete stop. As you can see from that equation, the smaller the time is, the larger the force.

Ah, high school physics is fun :D

Whoever wrote the comments up top is a tard. Don't say real Hummer at ALL, a h2 is a Chevy silverado with differnt body the h3 is a chevy colorado with different body. Both are the same silverado and h2 same engine, frame, and crappy ness. If a real hummer hit that bus it would have damage but it would stop the hummer not collapse into itself. H1's are real hummers h2 is a soccermom pussy vehicle

Just to clarify some misinformation here... the Chevy Blazer is a 1/4-ton SUV. Not a fullsize. The Blazer is akin to Ford's Explorer.

And the H2 isn't just a rebadged Yukon (or Tahoe), and it's certainly not a minivan with a boxy body. The H2 is built off a modified 3/4-ton Suburban chassis, and it's built along-side the H1 in the same production plant.

As far as the comment about thinking "frame would have some strength"... the H2's body hit the schoolbus, not the H2's frame. The body of any passenger vehicle nowadays, H2, H1, or otherwise, isn't going to stand up very well to a high speed collision with the back end of a school bus.

And a small Toyota would have been instantly converted to a convertible.

You people saying "it's a blazer with a diff. body" are idiots. Do some research on H2's and h3's. They're not the same as the combat Hummers, but they are built for offroad use. Fully-boxed ladder type frames. GM full-size trucks and blazers do not have that frame. It is extremely strong and durable.

The bumper of the bus is higher than the bumper of the H2. The frame submarined UNDER the bus. If it would have hit bumper-to-bumper, it would have probably been much less destroyed.

From wikipedia:

Although it shares GM's GMT820 truck platform with the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, those vehicles differ in many ways and are constructed in three other GM plants. The H2's final frame assembly is made up of 3 sections: The front uses a modified GM 2500-Series utility frame, the mid-section is all new and is completely boxed, and the rear section uses a modified GM 1500-Series frame which is upgraded for the 8,600 pound (3629 kg) gross vehicle weight.

I am a school bus driver / mechanic. The average empty school bus weights over 20,000 lbs., designed with most of its mass low, with re-enforced bumpers. The black stripes you see on a bus, are not just paint, those are heavy gauge corrugated steel braces running the length of the bus. The ONLY vehicle on the road harder than a school bus is an armored car. I have been driving school busses for over 18 years, the only collisions I have seen where the bus had more damage than the other vehicle is a big rig or a train.

The only thing that would have been better was having one of those fancy-schmancy pickups squished under the bus.

School buses are built with the same technology as Military TANKS. They do it, to keep kids safe. So lets see, a H2 hit a tank or a tank built bus. Yeah thats what i thought
