rollover test

 [rōl´o-ver]
a test to assess the risk of toxemia in pregnant women. A comparison of blood pressure is made with the woman lying on her left side and on her back; an excessive increase in blood pressure when she rolls to the supine position indicates increased risk of toxemia.

In recent legislation spurred by the Firestone-Ford fiasco, Congress gave NHTSA two years to develop and implement a new experimental rollover test that could be applied to new vehicles and used as a scientific basis for consumer information programs.
But Turner claims Ford's motive is something completely different: The Explorer, he charges, can't pass the company's internal rollover test at a higher pressure.
If the software's clock rollover test fails, the user can install the included millennium clock adjust program, which re-programs the clock chip to make it compatible with Y2000 dates.
The model 2100 unit is mounted onboard, recording data during the rollover test event.
The topics include a method for determining the vehicle-to-ground contact load during laboratory-based rollover tests, vehicle and occupant responses in a friction trip rollover test, all-terrain vehicle rollover resistance: testing of side-by-side all-terrain vehicle rollover initiations, evaluating dynamic roof deformation in rollover crash tests, and the rollover testing of a sport utility vehicle with an inertial measurement unit.
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first publicly available steer maneuver-induced furrow tripped rollover test series in which occupant dynamics in the presence of a deployed RSCA was evaluated throughout the entire rollover sequence.
Consider what happened when another engineering expert was asked whether the use of a certain type of anthropomorphic test dummy accurately modeled human responses in a rollover test:
The program happily ran itself and proclaimed a problem with the reviewer's six month old Dell Latitude CPI machine - specifically on the date rollover test. The machine then proclaimed that it had fixed it - all without the use of terminate and stay resident programs which can have their own reliability issues.
From the safety perspective, the CRUZIO meets the Rollover Test norms as per AIS 031 and the BUS Body code as per AIS 052.
One of three volumes on rollover accidents in the 12-volume compendium of technical papers on collision reconstruction, this volume considers such topics as the dolly rollover testing of child safety seats, modeling the effects of seat belts on occupant kinematics and injury risk in the rollover of a sport utility vehicle, occupant ejection trajectories in rollover crashes: full-scale testing and real-world cases, vehicle and occupant responses in a friction trip rollover test, and validating the occupant trajectory model using the Ford Expedition dolly rollover experimental test data.
