SLED TESTS OF THE AIR BAG-CRUSHABLE DASH-KNEEBAR PASSIVE RESTRAINT IN THE VOLVO 244

The objective of the short program was to conduct evaluation tests of the Air Bag-Crushable Dash-Kneebar Passive Restraint system in the interior environment of a Volvo 244 automobile. The passive restraint system evaluated in this program has been described fully under an earlier report referenced herein. Consequently, this report provides a limited description of the system and may be considered to be a supplement to that report. In this sled program, the restraint system was evaluated at velocities between 30 MPH and 46 MPH for the range of dummy sizes in the normal seated position. One run was conducted at 30 MPH for the forward position 6 yr. child size dummy. All tests were frontal impact simulations.
