NCHRP 22-32 [Completed]
Development of Methods to Evaluate Side Impacts for Next Edition MASH
| Project Data
||Dr. Malcolm H. Ray|
The objectives of this research were to develop recommended test procedures considering critical Test Level 3 vehicles to effectively measure vehicle side impacts, and validate/verify the test procedures. This research was to focus on terminals; however, additional roadside safety devices were also to be identified and considered. A combination of vehicle simulation and testing, such as, but not limited to, full scale, or pendulum testing was envisioned as part of this research. The research results were intended for inclusion as a new chapter or supplement in a future edition of the Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH). The research results were also to include recommendations for future edition enhancements of the Roadside Design Guide (RDG).
