Resumen This study was conducted to investigate issues surrounding the mounting of Roll-Over Protective Structures (ROPS) to small vehicles in the 300-600kg mass range primarily used in amenity, turf care and estate maintenance applications. Of particular interest was the potentially detrimental effect of ROPS installation upon small vehicle lateral stability, and the suitability of ROPS performance test criteria for application to small vehicles. Work involved computer-based dynamic simulation modelling, validated by practical roll-over trials. Roll-over behaviour was investigated, with particular respect to the onset of vehicle lateral instability and energy levels likely to be absorbed by the vehicle ROPS during the overturn event. Findings are discussed. It is concluded that appropriately-engineered conventional ROPS are suitable for application to small vehicles.
