CALIBRATION AND TEST PROCEDURES FOR THREE YEAR OLD CHILD DUMMY

Four three year old child dummies, SA 103C models, were tested at HSRI and TRC of Ohio to determine the ranges of responses of these dummies in calibration type tests and to refine testing fixtures and techniques. The dummy head accelerometer mounting was revised to reduce ringing, and the ribcage structure attachment modified to eliminate bottoming. A revised loading fixture was designed to facilitate the lumbar spine calibration. The modified dummies produced consistent calibration response data within the proposed limits of Docket 78-09 at both HSRI and TRC laboratories.
