PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF THE NHTSA ADVANCED 'S' SERIES 50TH PERCENTILE ANTHROPOMORPHIC DUMMY. VOLUME II - ACCELERATOR SLED TEST DATA

Four sled test configurations were employed to evaluate the dynamic performance repeatability of the NHTSA 'S' Series dummy. Type-2 belt, preinflated air bag, energy absorbing steering column, and Type-1 belt with simulated instrument panel test environments were utilized to measure the performance of two identically fabricated dummies. In addition, tests of a Part 572 dummy with Type-2 belts were performed to establish a control data set for the configuration. The graphical results of a statistical analysis performed on the results obtained from replicate tests of each configuration are presented.
