EUROSID I AND BIOSID IMPACT RESPONSE CHARACTERISTICS VS. ISO BIOFIDELITY REQUIREMENTS

This paper deals with responses of BIOSID and EUROSID I side impact dummies as regards biofidelity requirements set up by International Standardization Organization (ISO)/TEC22/SC12/WG5. Each dummy was subjected to a series of sled, impactor, and drop tests in order to assess the behaviour of dummy segments such as the neck, shoulder, thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Other dummy characteristics that are discussed are repeatability and reproducibility. The main results of the present study confirm that both dummies, although showing better performance than their processors, still need to be further developed so that they could be used as a development and certification tool.
