Full-scale crash tests were conducted to investigate the correlation between the 5 percentile Hybrid III dummy kinematics and chest response at three test speeds. A total of 20 comparative full frontal rigid barrier tests were conducted at 40, 48 and 56 km/h with the dummies placed in the front and rear outboard seating positions. As test speed increases to(More)
Passenger car side impact crash tests and sled tests were conducted to investigate the influence of booster seats, near-side occupant characteristics and vehicle interiors on the responses of the Q6/Q6s child ATD positioned in the rear, far-side seating location. Data from nine side impact sled tests simulating a EuroNCAP AEMD barrier test were analyzed(More)
Two manufacturers, Denton ATD and FTSS, currently produce the Hybrid III 5th percentile female dummy.
