Adr Australian Design Rules

A vehicle designed to be powered exclusively by human energy through a mechanism. EMERGENCY LOCKING RETRACTOR – a retractor with a locking mechanism designed for locking in abnormal operating conditions. 4.1. A two-digit vehicle class code shall be displayed for each vehicle category. This code is used to designate relevant vehicles in vehicle standards as represented by ADRs and related documentation. FIELD OF VIEW – the area inside a viewing cone with an included vertex angle of 40°C and the horizontal and parallel axis of the longitudinal axis of the vehicle loaded onto the horizontal ground at the construction load. The end of the cone shall be a point in the middle between the eyes of the „position of the driver`s eye“ (ADR 12). SEAT REFERENCE POINT (SRP) – the design reference point of the „manufacturer“ who (a) determines the rearmost normal or driving position for each particular seating position in a vehicle; (b) has defined coordinates in relation to the structure of the designed vehicle; (c) simulate the position of the pivot point of the human trunk and thigh; and (d) is the reference point used to position stencils in 2 dimensions described in SAE document J826, „Manikins for Use in Defining Vehicle Seating Accommodation“, November 1962; SAE J826a-Aug 1970; SAE J826b-January 1978; or SAE J826 APR80. NOTE: It is known that there are some difficulties in interpreting the term „normal driving or rearmost driving position“ with respect to „seats“ with vertical adjustment and/or the possibilities of extended „reverse adjustment“. The following 3 points of clarification shall be used in conjunction with the definition: (i) When designating the „EIA“, the „manufacturer“ shall take into account all types of adjustment of the „seat“ – horizontal, vertical and inclined – for the purpose of determining the „rearmost normal or driving position“, (ii) the „EIA“ is, after determination, the point used to position the 2-dimensional template with the leg of the 90th percentile, as described in the SAE document; for all purposes for which the model is used; iii) The 2-dimensional template with the leg of the 95th percentile with dimensions according to SAE J826b – January 1978 is accepted. SPLIT-DUTY BRAKING SYSTEM – „braking system“ consisting of 2 or more subsystems actuated by a single „controller“ and designed in such a way that a leak of part of the pressure in a single subsystem (with the exception of the structural failure of a housing common to all subsystems) does not affect the operation of other subsystems. PELVIC REFERENCE LOCUS – the location of a fixed point relative to the „seat“ and coinciding with the „pelvic reference point“ when the „seat“ is in the rearmost construction position and extends over the design or driving area of the „Seat“ suspension travel. CARAVAN – any closed trailer designed primarily for the stationary human profession.

SPECIFIED DESIGN SECTION WIDTH – the width specified in the „Proposed Standard“ for a new tire of this size designation and type when inflated on its „measuring rim“. B. The relevant requirements of this ADR apply to the design and construction of vehicles, as shown in the table below. BOVINE TRAILER – a „trailer“ specially designed for the transport of cattle, sheep or pigs. WINTER TREAD (including tires known as „mud and snow,“ „M&S,“ or „snow“) – a tire whose pattern and „tread“ structure are primarily designed to provide better performance in mud and fresh or melting snow than a regular (road-type) tire. The „tread profile“ of a „winter tread“ usually consists of „groove“ (rib) elements and/or solid blocks that are farther away than a regular tire (road tire). QUICK RELEASE COUPLING – a „coupling“ designed to be engaged and disengaged without tools. 2.1. The job of this vehicle standard is to establish things like definitions of key terms that apply to certain Australian design rules.

It contains material that must be read in conjunction with certain Australian design rules in order to establish the rights and obligations arising from those rules. STRAP – part of a „Seat Belt Assembly“ equipped with bending to allow correct and comfortable wearing. 42.12.3.2.2.1. If the front part of the vehicle is designed or constructed in such a way that the wheel protector is not required if it meets all the requirements of clause 42.12.3.1 (e.B is part of the bodywork). ANCHOR CONNECTION – the terminal part of a „seat belt assembly“ designed to be attached to a vehicle or „seat“. ANCHORAGE – the part of a vehicle designed to transfer loads from a „seat belt assembly“ to the vehicle or „seat“ that contains screws, „spacers“ and other equipment to secure a „seat belt assembly“. 42.5.1.2. Any component of the steering system of a motor vehicle which is essential for the efficient steering of the vehicle shall be so designed as to transmit energy only mechanically. LOOP COMPONENT – each of the 2 parts of the loop set is designed to be locked together to complete the loop assembly. SEATING CAPACITY – the number of seated adults for whom the vehicle is designed and for whom the seating positions (determined in accordance with ADR 5.7 clause 5/.

„Anchorages for safety belts and child restraint systems“ and section 10 of ADR 5/. Seat belt anchorages) are available. SEAT BELT ASSEMBLY – an arrangement of „belts“, „anchor fittings“, safety buckles, adjustment devices and, if the combination is necessary to provide an upper body restraint system, at least one „Chassis Guide“ device intended to restrain an occupant of a motor vehicle in the event of an impact. Energy absorption or retraction devices of the „belt“ are considered part of the „seat belt assembly“. OFF-ROAD USE – refers to the type of use in which a vehicle must have the specific design characteristics set out in the definition of „off-road vehicles“ (ADR 28/01). 42.9.1.2. articles or equipment which are technically essential for that vehicle, unless their design, construction and condition and the manner in which they are attached to the vehicle are likely to minimise the risk of bodily injury to a person; The vehicle must be equipped with wheel guards (body parts, fenders, etc.) designed to protect other road users as much as possible from stone throwing, mud, ice, snow and water and to reduce the risks to these users from contact with moving wheels. CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM ANCHORAGE – the part of the vehicle intended to transfer loads from the upper part of the „child restraint system“ to the vehicle structure. MASS OF THE NORMALLY LADEN VEHICLE (of a passenger car) – the sum of: the „unladen mass“ with: the heaviest regular production options, if these individual options have a mass of 2.3 kg or more; plus 68 kg for each of the 2 occupants of the front „seat“; in addition, if the „seat capacity“ indicated is 5 or more, 68 kg for a rear passenger. TEST RIM – any „rim“ indicated as approved in the „Designated Standard“ for a tyre of this size designation and type. 4.5.3.

Equipment carried in certain special vehicles not designed for the carriage of passengers (cranes, workshop vehicles, advertising vehicles, etc.) is considered to be goods for the purposes of this definition. ATTACH CLIP – the device shown in Figure 1 of ADR 34/. that is part of the „child restraint system“ and is designed in such a way that it can be attached to the „child restraint system“. .
