Test Method for Simulating Vehicle Rollover 2001-01-0475

The on-going industry effort to improve occupant safety during a rollover event has created the need to re-examine how rollover testing is conducted. The demand for a repeatable technique of testing vehicles and their safety systems has forced the automotive industry to create new test methods.
This paper will review a non-destructive, repeatable method to test vehicle rollover susceptibility subjected to a lateral deceleration pulse. This methodology provides for efficient development of the vehicle, the rollover-sensing algorithm, and the safety system performance.
