Aluminium improves transport safety
In a recently finished study it was shown that an energy-absorbing Aluminium Crash Management Systems in the front of heavy-duty vehicles has enormous potential to improve passive road safety. By improving the CMS of the truck front, the severity of car to truck accidents can be significantly reduced, while at the same time the self-protection for truck drivers can be improved.
A state-of-the-art aluminium CMS was developed in this project; the safety improvements that it brings involve a very low weight increase of less than 10 kg compared to a CMS from a conventional tractor.
