BELT SLIP MEASUREMENTS ON HUMAN VOLUNTEERS AND THE PART 572 DUMMY IN LOW -GX IMPACT ACCELERATION

A series of volunteer and dummy impact experiments was performed on a Hyge-type (accelerator) sled to study the relative motion between the upper torso restraint and the torso surface. Kinematic measurements were made using a three-dimensional photogrammetric analysis of high-speed film data. Belt slip was found to be in the range of approximately 10 to 30 mm with more slip experienced by volunteers than the dummy. The dummy showed a slight change in amount of slip with acceleration level and all slip takes place within the first 80 ms of belt loading. For the covering abstract of the conference see HS-036 716.
