ISO 16333:2004 specifies a tilt-table test method for estimating the steady-state rollover threshold of a heavy commercial vehicle or bus, i.e. the maximum lateral acceleration that the test vehicle could sustain in steady-state turning without rolling over. It is applicable to complete roll units/combinations of roll-coupled vehicle units -- e.g. single-unit vehicles, tractor-semitrailer combinations, articulated buses, full trailers, B-train combinations -- of commercial vehicles, commercial vehicle combinations, buses or articulated buses as defined in ISO 3833, and under Categories M3, N2, N3, O3 and O4 of ECE and EC vehicle regulations (trucks and trailers with maximum weights above 3,5 t and buses and articulated buses with maximum weights above 5 t).
