The effect of usage on seat belt strength

Used seat belts and seat belts which had been worn in frontal accidents, were collected from 4 localities. Subjective and objective measurement evaluations were conducted on a range of belts by the snowy mountains engineering corporation. A statistical analysis was carried out to establish whether subjective evaluations could be used as a measure of seat belt strength. The analysis indicated that the seat belt static strength could be predicted with limited accuracy from non-destructive measures and ratings. Further testing is recommended to determine whether strength prediction techniques can be refined. (A)
