VEHICLE CRASHWORTHINESS AND AGGRESSIVENESS. VOLUME II: MEASUREMENT OF AGGRESSIVENESS FOR SAFETY STANDARDS COMPLIANCE

Results of crash tests conducted with a load cell barrier test device (both moving and fixed) were analyzed in hopes of determining suitability of the device for future compliance test measurement of frontal vehicle aggressiveness. Responses of cars crashed against the load cell barrier were compared with responses against the standard fixed rigid barrier. In addition, an analytical study was performed to explore the capability of different types of barriers for measuring aggressiveness.
