OPTIMIZATION OF A DRIVER AIRBAG SYSTEM REGARDING DIFFERENT DUMMY SIZES AND DIFFERENT SEATING POSITIONS

A simulation study for the optimization process of a driver airbag system is presented. Several influence parameters affecting the contact between dummy and airbag, such as contact velocity, contact time, pressure level and vent sizes, are investigated. Some conclusions concerning the development process, especially under the consideration of different dummy sizes, are given. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 875886.
