PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENTS OF THREE-YEAR-OLD TEST DUMMY HEADS HEADS
This research was performed under two separate phases. The Phase I objective was to evaluate new head designs for the three-year-old child test dummy. Six different heads were fabricated with various density materials for the skulls in an effort to find a design which would indicate higher impact stiffness properties than current heads when tested under impact conditions. A new accelerometer mount was also evaluated. The Phase II work involved the dynamic sled testing of the final fiberglass head design. The new fiberglass head indicated performance levels that were within approximately 4.6% of the standard head measurements. measurements.
