HIGHWAY-VEHICLE-OBJECT SIMULATION MODEL-1976 ENGINEERING MANUAL-VALIDATION

A series of reports have been written to document revised and updated versions of the simulation of highway-vehicle-object interactions in a single vehicle highway environment. The programs documented were developed under FHWA sponsorship to provide the highway safety community with an analytical means of evaluating the effects of highway/roadside environment on safety. This manual is addressed to the engineer and contains evidence of the validity of the HVOSM mathematical model and computer simulation. Both rigorous tests of validity by comparisons with extensively documented full-scale tests and general comparisons are included. (FHWA)
