Selective Sensitivity Study of the Jordan Rollover System – Comparison with the Un-Constrained Model for Different Test Bed Mass and Yaw Angle


In this paper, finite element analysis was used to compare the dynamic rollover performance of a midsized SUV with a strengthened roof in a Jordan Rollover System (JRS) test with an Un-Constrained (UC) rollover under the same initial conditions. The JRS has the ability to closely control the initial conditions of a vehicle being subjected to a rollover test… (More)
