PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF THE GENERAL MOTORS HYBRID II ANTHROPOMORPHIC TEST DUMMY

A series of twelve static and dynamic component tests were performed to measure the GM Hybrid II dummy in accordance with the purchase description test procedures and specifications. Twenty type-2 belt restraint tests and twenty air bag restraint tests were performed using an accelerator sled to simulate a 30-mph impact crash. The dynamic performance of the dummies was statistically the same in terms of absolute value and variability of the measured parameters. The GM Hybrid II dummy exhibits statistically the same variability as the Alderson hybrid dummy previously tested under contract DOT HS-053-1-129, but has significantly different absolute values for the dynamic test parameters.
