CHILD RESTRAINT EVALUATION BY EXPERIMENTAL AND MATHEMATICAL SIMULATION

Two child restraint system sled tests with a child cadaver and a 3-year old child dummy have been carried out. Some differences between the kinematical response off dummy and cadaver were found. Two mathematical models have been formulated, using the MADYMO program package, for the special purpose of evaluating child rstraint performance. A description of the validated dummy and cadaver model is presented together with a comparison of experimental and model results. It is concluded that the mathematical model is a better simulation for the cadaver kinematics than the dummy.
