The potential injury reducing benefits by a far-side airbag was evaluated by means of human body modelling (HBM). The human body model (HBM) was validated for far side evaluation by means of PMHS tests carried out under six simplified far-side impact conditions. A CORrelation Analysis (CORA) rating was carried out. Based on the CORA score and the proposed biofidelity evaluation procedure the model was considered valid to be used in evaluation of far-side impact countermeasures. The HBM was there...

© CURRAN-CONFERENCE. All rights reserved. The effect of belt configuration, load limiting and pretensioning on the protection of elderly occupants was evaluated using the THOR ATD and the human body model THUMS TUC in frontal impacts at 35 km/h and 56 km/h. In total, 18 sled tests were carried out in a generic buck, which comprised of a seat-belt, a rigid seat and a generic driver airbag. The multipoint injury criteria Rmax and PCA score were derived from THOR IR-TRACC deflections and used to as...

ABSTRACTObjectives: The objective of this study was to determine the potential chest injury benefits and influence on occupant kinematics of a belt system with independent control of the shoulder and lap portions.Methods: This article investigates the kinematics and dynamics of human surrogates in 35 km/h impacts with 2 different restraints: a pretensioning (PT), force-limiting (FL) seat belt, a reference belt system, and a concept design with a split buckle consisting (SB) of 2 separate shoulde...

Objective: The objective of this article is to analyze the kinematics and dynamics of restrained postmortem human surrogates (PMHS) exposed to a nearside oblique impact and the injuries that were found after the tests.Methods: Three male PMHS of similar age (64 4years) and anthropometry (weight: 61 9.6kg; stature: 172 +/- 2.7cm) were exposed to a 30 degrees nearside oblique impact at 34km/h. The test fixture approximated the seating position of a front seat occupant. A rigid seat was designed to...

Oblique and small-overlap crashes are the second most common frontal crash type leading to fatal outcome. This study discusses a simplified test rig suitable to analyse the performance of the THOR dummy in oblique impacts. Secondly, this paper compares the kinematics and dynamics of the THOR dummy under the loading of two types of seat belts. The generic test rig was based on the Gold Standard fixture. By means of mathematical simulations with the THOR dummy model different seat designs were eva...
