TEST SITE INSTRUMENTATION STUDY. VOLUME I
The study reviewed the data acquisition and reduction practices at fifteen crash and sled testing facilities which normally produce impact test data for the NHTSA. Attention was focused on dynamic response characteristics, instrumentation calibration procedures, filtering techniques, equipment properties and analog to digital conversion techniques. The results of the study indicate that significant variations occur among the test facilities. Recommendations are given for the NHTSA to standardize data acquisition and reduction methods so that the test data in the NHTSA crash test data base system will have greater consistency.
