In contrast to the static vehicle test, the dynamic vehicle test is conducted while driving. The test examines a specific load securing system. In the dynamic test, we study the combination of truck, load and load securing system.
In principle, a universal XL certificate can be obtained by means of the dynamic vehicle test(EN12642 annex B). In this case, the tests are carried out with a load whose dimensional stability is sufficiently low.
The most well-known application of the dynamic test is the testing of a certain load securing method.
It examines the effectiveness of the combination of truck, load and load securing. It is the ideal solution for loads where shape stability at pallet level is not possible or not desirable.
During these tests, the following manoeuvres are performed:
To ensure the safety of the driver and the truck, support wheels are added. These support wheels prevent the truck from tipping over. This is because an acceleration of 0.5g or 5m/s² brings the truck close to its tipping point.
In addition, accelerometers are also mounted on the truck. In this way, one can monitor whether the intended acceleration is achieved.
