Alternative TMA carriers: crash test with a tractor, an articulated front-end loader and a rigid frame
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute, Infrastructure, Crash safety.
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

TMA (Truck Mounted Attenuator) brukas som mobilt skydd vid vägarbeten. De monteras vanligen på lastbilar. I projektet har VTI krockprovat TMA monterat på alternativa TMA-fordon: en traktor och enhjullastare. Senare kompletterades projektet med ytterligare prov med TMA monterat på en ram för lastväxlarflak samt därutöver även ett krockprov där ett samarbete med Autoliv innebar att risken förwhiplash för föraren kunde studeras. Detta genom att upprepa krockprovet med traktor och TMA med en s.k. BioRID-krockdocka på förarplats. Krockprovet är utfört enligt metoden NCHRPR 350 3-52. I en extern del av projektet har kompletterande slädkrockprov utförts hos Autoliv i Vårgårda; resultat återges i denna rapport som bilaga. Resultatet av projektet är en rekommendation att tillåta vissa typer av alternativa fordon som TMA-bärare, under förutsättning att vissa minimiviktsgränser uppfylls för fordonen.

Abstract [en]

TMAs (Truck Mounted Attenuator) are used as mobile protectors for road work zones. They are typically mounted on trucks. In this project the VTI has crashtested TMAs installed on alternative TMA carriers, i.e. a tractor and an articulated front-end loader. Later on, the project was enhanced with an additional crash test on a steel frame intended for transportation on trucks and, in cooperation with Autoliv, a further crash test where the risk of whiplash injuries was to be studied. The latter was done by repeating the crash test with a TMA on a tractor and having a BioRID crash test dummy in the driver seat. The test was run according to NCHRPR 350 3-52 procedure. In an external elongation of the project, sled tests were run at Autoliv; the results are included in this report as an annex.
