Steering Control Systems - Laboratory Test Procedure Heavy Trucks
This SAE Recommended Practice describes a laboratory test procedure for evaluating the characteristics of heavy truck steering control systems under simulated driver impact conditions. The test procedure employs a torso-shaped body block that is impacted against the steering wheel.
Rationale: This procedure was revised to provide clarification to select setup parameters and several test situations that may arise, as well as commonize instrumentation and test conditions to ECE R-12 Occupant Protection - Steering Column Displacement.
