EFFICIENCY OF IMPACT TEST IN SAFETY GLASS TESTING

The results of the phantom test depend largely on the construction of the phantom head. In a test series with HPR safety glass (2.0/2.8/0.76 mm flat panes of 24 x 36 in.), the effect of several parameters (head mass and head spring suspension, head freely movable or head guided on evaluation values for resultant head acceleration. Severity Index, Head Impact Criterion, tolerance value, and Laceration index) was investigated. The test series were carried out at impact angles of a - 45, 60, and 90 deg at rates of 20-50 km/h. The results, supplemented by motion analysis of the impact process, were compared to the results of sled tests with test dummies previously used by other testing installations on similar glass constructions and under comparable test conditions.
