EVALUATION OF ROADWAY SAFETY FEATURES BY COMPUTER SIMULATION

Research on evaluation of the roadway environment by dynamic analysis of the interaction between the vehicle, passenger, and the roadway begin in 1968 and was concluded in 1974. The broad objective of the research was to develop criteria beneficial to the design of a safety highway and its roadside features. Math models and limited full-scale tests were the basic research tools to be used in developing the criteria. Since the comprehensive research began, a total of nine individual studies were undertaken. This report briefly summarizes these studies.
