SAFER SIGN AND LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS. TASK K. CORRELATION OF FULL-SCALE, LABORATORY, ANALYTICAL, AND COMPUTER-SIMULATED RESULTS. VOLUME IV
Results of a correlation study between full-scale, laboratory pendulum, analytical, and computer-simulated tests of impacts with breakaway sign and luminaire supports is presented. Momentum change during impact is used as a basis of comparison in the correlation. This task report is part of a study in which a full investigation into impact phenomena of vehicles with breakaway supports was made using analytical, computer simulated, laboratory pendulum, and full-scale testing techniques. Procedures for acceptance testing of breakaway sign and luminaire supports using a pendulum impact facility were also developed.
