Validation of the Eevc Mobile Deformable Barrier for Side Impact Testing 856093

Following the European Experimental Vehicles Committee's definitions, the mobile barrier frame was built by several partners and rigid polyurethane foam selected as the material for the front deformable face. A validation process consisted of different tests distributed among ONSER, BASt, and TRRL. ONSER, UTAC, and TRRL conducted impact tests on individual blocks, total tests against a dynamometric wall, and lateral impact tests against the Renault 14 as struck cars.
The validation was completed by performing barrier-to-car tests at the BASt facility according to the proposed EEVC impact test procedure. The basis for comparison was given by car/car tests under the same conditions and with cars of the same type. These cars were the Golf and Daimler Benz (W 123 series). Results from this test series show the barrier face has a very useful crash simulation fidelity and repeatability
