A MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR IMPACT TESTS ON CRASH BARRIERS

OF VARIOUS VEHICLES WITH GUARD RAILS. THE SIMULATION COVERS THE COMPLETE BEHAVIOUR OF THE VEHICLE AND THE CRASH BARRIER. A CERTAIN NUMBER OF FULL SCALE TESTS HAS BEEN COMPUTED AND A FAIR AGREEMENT WITH EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS HAS BEEN OBTAINED. BY THE USE OF SUCH A PROGRAM THE NUMBER OF FULL SCALE TESTS COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. (SEE ALSO IRRD ABSTRACT NO. 206585).
