NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION-NAVAL AIR DEVELOPMENT CENTER ADVANCED RESTRAINT SYSTEMS DYNAMIC TEST PROGRAM

Dynamic tests were conducted on advanced passive seat belt restraint systems using anthropometric dummies. The objectives of the work were: (1) To evaluate the degree of occupant crash protection afforded by each system; (2) to measure the dynamic response of the dummy when exposed to impact accelerations for later comparison with human response under similar conditions; (3) to ascertain the structural safety of the restraint system before human testing; and (4) to select candidate systems for human testing.
