COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF AIR CUSHION AND BELT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS IN IDENTICAL CRASH SITUATIONS USING DUMMIES AND CADAVERS

In order to evaluate the effectiveness of occupant restraint systems in full scale crashes, with emphasis upon injury to human beings, a series of 11 crash tests were conducted using both anthropometric test devices and cadavers as human surrogates. Occupant restraint systems chosen to be tested were: the air cushion restraint system and three point belt restraint systems.
