This SAE Recommended Practice describes the test procedures for conducting simulated dynamic lateral rollover restraint system tests for heavy truck applications. Its purpose is to establish recommended test procedures that will standardize restraint system testing for heavy trucks. Descriptions of the test set-up, test instrumentation, photographic/video coverage, and the test fixtures are included.
This recommended practice is revised to update ATD references to 49 CFR 572, include data processing according to SAE J1727, update photographic instrumentation to more modern laboratory practices and update formatting. Seat positioning section 4.4 was added.
