Crash safety testing, non-accredited
In addition to accredited testing, other dynamic crash safety testing is carried out at the laboratory.
Crash barriers, MASH
Recently an update of NCHRPR350 has been published, namely a document named MASH. It will gradually replace NCHRPR350. The VTI crash safety laboratory conducts testing according to MASH as well.
Crash tests using moose model
The crash safety laboratory has developed a moose model called Mooses II, which makes it possible to study what happens when a vehicle collides with a moose. The moose model weighs 357 kg and is made of a large number of rubber discs that are threaded on two steel cables. The model is generally robust and equipped with legs to make the collision objective and repeatable, and also as realistic as possible.
