A Tilt Table Procedure for Measuring the Static Rollover Threshold for Heavy Trucks

2011-05-17
CURRENT
J2180_201105
The test procedure applies to roll coupled units such as straight trucks, tractor semitrailers, full trailers, B-trains, etc. The test is aimed at evaluating the level of lateral acceleration required to rollover a vehicle or a roll-coupled unit of a vehicle in a steady turning situation. Transient, vibratory, or dynamic rollover situations are not simulated by this test. Furthermore, the accuracy of the test decreases as the tilt angle increases, although this is a small effect at the levels of tilt angle used in testing heavy trucks. The test accuracy is accepted for vehicles that will rollover at lateral acceleration levels below 0.5 g corresponding to a tilt table angle of less than approximately 27 degrees. Even so, the results for heavy trucks with rollover thresholds greater than 0.5 g could be used for comparing their relative static roll stability.

New-Vehicle Collision Repair Information

1997-12-01
HISTORICAL
J2376_199712
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the various types of information required by the collision repair industry to properly restore light-duty, highway vehicles to their pre-accident condition. Procedures and specifications are defined for damage- related repairs to body, mechanical, electrical, steering, suspension, and safety systems. The distribution method and publication timeliness are also considered. The purpose of this document is to assist vehicle and equipment manufacturers, and information providers in providing timely information, in user-friendly formats, to facilitate economical, high-quality repair of collision-damaged, light duty, highway vehicles by dealer-owned and independently owned collision repair shops.

CURRENT
J2314_201102
The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to promote the highest professional and personal conduct of practitioners in the fields of accident investigation and reconstruction. It encourages the continuous application of high ethical principles to one’s own endeavors. It also encourages the application of these same principles to others associated with accident investigation and reconstruction.

Moving Rigid Barrier Collision Tests

2015-03-13
CURRENT
J972_201503
Collision tests are conducted on automotive vehicles to obtain information of value in evaluation of structural integrity and in reducing the risk of occupant injuries. The deformation resulting from a moving rigid barrier impact is more severe at a given speed than that produced by using an actual vehicle, but is more readily reproducible than that occurring during vehicle to vehicle impacts. The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to establish sufficient standardization of such moving barriers and moving barrier collision methods so that results of tests conducted at different facilities may be compared.

Automotive Vehicle Safety

2002-08-28
This book is an internationally oriented discussion on how to evaluate products, processes, services and systems. The authors identify key generic safety principles an discuss their applications. Decision-making criteria are also explained, and in-depth information on human simulation, human error control and driver distractions is provided. The book details reconstruction techniques and methods of crash testing, and looks at future vehicle safety and universal design.
