A FORCE LIMITING SYSTEM ON A THREE-POINT-BELT SYSTEM DEPENDING ON CRASH VELOCITY
This force limiter produces a belt force so that at the maximum requested crash-velocity and each lower one the maximum possible relative forward displacement between passenger and vehicle will be nearly used. Thereby, the passenger loads by the belt will be reduced, as well as the decelerations effecting the passenger, at a lower than the maximum requested crash-velocities in accident statistics, injuries by the belt will be effectly reduced, mainly for people of fragile constitution. /SAE/
