BREAKAWAY AND YIELDING LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS

EFTERGIVLIGA BELYSNINGSSTOLPAM, UTVECKLING AV ENPROVNINGSMETOD OCH FORSLAG TILL KRAV

In order to specify national requirements on crashworthiness of roadside hazards a new test method has been used. A moving barrier with a deformable front has been developed and 59 tests have been made with different types of breakaway and yielding luminaire supports, roadsigns and wooden utility poles. The method has worked satisfactorily and the use of a deformable moving barrier is proposed for crash testing of most types of roadside safety appurtenances. (Author)
