Experimental Investigation of Crash Barriers for Measuring Vehicle Aggressiveness–Fixed Rigid Barrier Initial Results 810093

This paper presents the initial results of a crash test program designed to evaluate the ability of three different barriers to measure vehicle aggressiveness. The barriers included in the study are the fixed rigid (FRB), load cell fixed (LCFB) and moving deformable (MDB). Previous crash tests and analytical studies conducted to determine causes of aggressiveness and ways of measuring aggressiveness are reviewed.
In this paper, full frontal car-to-car and FRB crash test results of an aggressive and a non-aggressive car are presented and compared.
