THE IMPACT BEHAVIOR OF THE HYBRID II DUMMY
The head, chest and femurs of three Hybrid II dummies were impacted with a ballistic pendulum at various angles to determine what differences in accelerometer and femur load cell putput would result for a constant energy input. Also evaluated were suspicious tension loads in the femur load cell putput when the legs were subjected to obvious off-center impacts during crash tests. It was found that the dummy legs can be subjected to very high torsion and bending loads which can have a significant effect on the femur load cell axial load outputs.
