Road vehicles — Sensitivity to lateral wind — Open-loop test method using wind generator input
|Publication Date:||1 December 2010|
|ICS Code (Road vehicles in general):||43.020|
This International Standard specifies an open-loop test method to determine the sensitivity to lateral wind of a vehicle by means of a wind generator. It applies to passenger cars as defined in ISO 3833, passenger cartrailer combinations and light trucks. Its applicability to motorcycles is yet to be investigated.
The test conditions specified in this test method are not representative of real driving conditions but are useful to obtain measures of vehicle dynamic response to lateral wind.
NOTE The test conditions in this test method do not simulate natural wind conditions. However, the wind velocity proposed here is representative of fairly severe wind conditions occurring naturally.
