ON AIRBAG INFLATOR GRADE DESIGNATION - A FIVE INDEX GRADING SYSTEM

This paper addresses the need to have a consistent and meaningful means to grade airbag inflators. A grading system based on five key characteristics of inflators has been developed. The grading system is designed to include all the important physical aspects of the inflator that affect airbag performance, but to still retain a simple form. It is proposed to use this, or a grading system similar to this, as an industry-wide grading system for inflators. Airbag engineers will be able to communicate more effectively, with a grading system of this kind. This will enhance the efficiency of airbag system design and development effort.
