Rollover Potential of Vehicles on Embankments, Sideslopes, and Other Roadside Features 870234

THIS PAPER PRESENTS results of a computer simulation analysis to examine the potential of roadside features for inducing vehicle rollover. A modified version of the Highway-Vehicle-Object Simulation Model(HVOSM) incorporating a tire/deformable-soil interaction model was verified by full-scale vehicle tests and used to predict the dynamic responses of representative small and large automobiles traversing various roadside terrain for both tracking and nontracking departures from the roadway.
