CURRENT STATUS OF CORRELATION BETWEEN CTP (COMPOSITE TEST PROCEDURE) AND FST (FULL-SCALE TEST)

The current status on the extent of correlation between full-scale test (FST) results and the dummy responses obtained by the CTP (Composite Test Procedure) test is reported. It is based on the cooperative operations of the new association of European car manufacturers (ACEA), the Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association (MVMA), and the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA). First, an outline of the course of the JAMA/JARI research is introduced. This research is aimed at improving the correlation between the dummy responses in FST and CTP tests. Next, a description is given of: (1) the differences in the two computer-controlled CTP systems and software developed by ACEA and JAMA/JARI; and (2) the extent of correlation between the CC-CTP and FST results. Both methods of CC-CTP have been judged as already showing high correlation in the field of computer simulation. (A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 864606.
