NHTSA Oblique & Small Overlap Mobile Deformable Barrier

NHTSA O-MDB Crash Test Barrier

Based on Aluminum Honeycomb technology, the NHTSA O-MDB barrier (Frontal Mobile Deformable Barrier Face v2013 – Research Moving Deformable Barrier RMDB v2015) is designed to be used in both Oblique and Small Overlap impacts. The barrier is a precision measurement tool to ensure repetitive and correlative results under similar test conditions and to reflect adequately the protective performance of a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment with respect to human occupants.

Technical Properties

The NHTSA Frontal Mobile Deformable Barrier Face v2013 deformable barrier is an assembly of two layers of deformable aluminium honeycomb core. Both deformable cores (300 mm thick in the impact direction T), designed to provide a constant load in depth, adhesively bonded together with different aluminium sheets forming a ready to use deformable barrier to be fixed on a moving trolley.

A complete testing procedure for certification of aluminum honeycomb is performed in-house according to Frontal Oblique and Small overlap Impact Crashworthiness Evaluation, NHTSA Test procedure, July 2015 and in accordance with the procedure defined in NHTSA TP-214D. The aluminum honeycomb blocks are processed such that the force deflection-curve when statically crushed is within the corridors defined for each of the 2 blocks.
