Further Consideration of the European Side Impact Test Procedure
Published January 01, 1987 by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in United States
The European Experimental Vehicles Committee side impact tests are conducted using EUROSID dummies, mobile deformable barriers made up of 6 blocks, and stationary impact vehicles. Comparison testing was performed to evaluate the use of crabbed motion of the barriers to simulate results of impacts against moving cars. This report details the specifications of the EEVC barriers and confirms the validity of the EEVC side impact test procedure.
