COMPARISON BETWEEN PART 572 DUMMY AND HUMAN SUBJECT IN THE PROBLEM OF SUBMARINING

Anthropometric data relative to the pelvis have been obtained from X-rays of volunteers and Part 572 dummy, as well as pelvic bones of 28 human skeletons. Consequently, modifications in the pelvic portion of Part 572 dummy are proposed. These are based on the study in the difference of tendency of submarining, the difference of the pelvic shape, and the abdominal flexibility between Part 572 dummy and the human being. Some submarining parameters are discussed using the experimental results. A method for establishing the criteria of abdominal injuries caused by submarining is described also.
