CALIBRATION OF A SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM ACCELERATION MEASUREMENT DEVICE. FINAL REPORT

This report describes the calibration of a six-degree-of-freedom acceleration measurement system designed for use in the measurement of linear and angular head accelerations of anthropomorphic dummies during crash tests. The calibration methodology, developed earlier, uses several different prime movers to extract the necessary information to characterize the system completely. The device calibrated consisted of any array of nine linear accelerometers in a non-coplaner (3-2-2-2) configuration. The calibration was carried out in the Naval Biodynamics Laboratory in New Orleans, Louisiana.
