INFLUENCE OF CRUSH ORIENTATION ON KNEE BOLSTER FUNCTION IN BARRIER CRASH SIMULATION
Barrier crash simulations with a torso-belted Part 572 dummy were conducted to determine the influence of knee bolster crush orientations of 0 degree -60 degree on lower extremity restraint. Bolster orientation had only a minor effect on the level of peak dummy femur, and resultant knee bolster reaction load and on lower extremity kinematics of the torso-belted occupant; however, the local loading of the knee and level of tibial compression were significantly influenced.
